I just spotted the first Summer CHA sneak peeks (on the Prima blog) yesterday, and I'm not even done scrapping with the supplies that I acquired after the last one...or the five before that!

Are you guys ready for the new collections? Or in denial like me?

Good lord I'm not either! I actually decided I'm going to abstain for looking at the sneak peeks. I hate the agony of falling in love with a line and waiting forever for it to come out! Okay, I'm exaggerating a little, but you know what I mean.

Not ready, at all! I feel like I've just barely been able to finish buying what I wanted from winter CHA, and then some of the mid-season releases I wanted. It's so much fun having new product come out all of the time but also begins to feel like my shopping is becoming oversaturated....

I'm not ready to pay for anything. I am ready to see it all, though. I get a lot of joy and inspiration from seeing all the new supplies

Have a great day!

I hear you. Usually Summer CHA is more dangerous to me than the Winter CHA. But this year, I wanted a ton of stuff from Winter CHA, so I'm really scared about the summer one.

Funny thing is, when I saw Winter CHA sneaks, I didn't think I wanted much. Then when it started popping up in the stores, I wanted a lot of it.

I had to run off to look at the Prima blog. Luckily, the doll stamps and the dies haven't interested me. So I'm safe for now...

Hi, sorry to sidetrack the thread but I was wondering how do we find out about the new products at CHA? I am sort of a newbie but I've heard about the CHA shows. Are they always in Las Vegas? I wish I could go, it seems like it would be so much fun!

Not. Ready. At all!
But I am using lots from last CHA on pages.
So it's not that it's just sitting there.
But like so many other scrappers, I have enough product to scrapbook for the rest of my life without buying another single thing!

I like a couple of the Prima doll stamps - but not nearly as much as those that came out in the first batch. I've made up my mind to be terribly choosey over what CHA Summer has to offer. I don't need any more paper - too much recently acquired still unused. I'll bet there will be stamps I can't resist, however.

I am so ready! I've been scrapping and crafting up a storm for my blog event and my online class, and I've used up almost everything I bought from Winter CHA. I am looking forward to seeing the Christmas / Winter stash so I can plan for my next blog event in November! I love seeing all the new stuff!

I am not ready as I just had to become a frozen pea today after some unexpected events. So now I am hoping that I dont like anything from CHA, but that is unlikely. I know I will like MME and Simple Stories ,so that worries me. I dont need Christmas paper but I would love a great fall/autumn line. Heatherafter...there is a site called Scrapbook Update that will have an entire list of all the sneak peeks. She does a great job of organizing it all.

Like most, I have tons of stuff left that I bought from the winter CHA so I am not ready for more. However, I tend to buy very little from the summer CHA because I don't celebrate Christmas (I am Jewish), I live in Ca. so I don't have a lot of use for autumn lines, and I only buy a few sheets of Halloween paper and maybe one pack of embellishments. So I think (I hope) I won't over do it.

I don't buy many Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day or fall products either, so I hope that will save me!

I'm not ready, I just got some mid-releases on their way to me. But I am also not worried since I rarely buy much from summer CHA. We have like two weeks of fall here, and I only do 1 Halloween LO a year. And I already have a ton of holiday and winter products. So I doubt I'd want much from the release. Probably will get my usual Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan lines and call it good.

Not ready at all. That means that Christmas and winter is closer than I want to admit. Not to mention I still am loving the last CHA goodies and mid season releases

Totally not ready! How is it already time?!? My last 2Peas order (from the end of April) hasn't even been opened, beyond the initial flipping through it/smelling it.

The majority of my stuff is all packed up and we're moving in 2 weeks. I'm going to have to really rush to get my scrapbook stuff unpacked in time! What week is CHA?

Yikes! I still haven't ordered my mid-releases picks. And I just started a Halloween mini album so I know I will be in trouble there.

I had not really bought many new supplies for years, just bits and pieces here and there. But lately I have been on a shopping spree and I worry that these new releases will be hard to resist. Repeat until you believe it ... you don't really need that!

I'm going to CHA for the first time! I'm going to be in big trouble! I usually have to see paper in person before I will buy it so it usually keeps me fairly reigned in. I think my check book is going to be in for a world of hurt if I actually get to see EVERYTHING in person! yikes!

Will I ever get to Buckethead?!

I am totally ready, although Summer CHA doesn't usually have a lot I am interested in. I am not into Halloween and Christmas things. I am looking forward to October Afternoon which is pretty much all I have purchased from Winter CHA, with the exception of some washi tapes.
