We’re gearing up for the CHA Summer ’09 new releases. Since we like to be on the ball bringing you the newest products, we’ve already placed about ½ our CHA orders AHEAD of the show!! That’s right, we hound vendors and work hard this time of year.
So what’s in store? Read on!
MARTHA STEWART CRAFTS (MSC) PUNCHES
Once again, we are first to bring you all the new MSC punches. We’ve already received about ¾ of the new designs and the rest will arrive in about 10 days. We’re hard at work filling all the pre-orders and hope to be done with all the complete pre-orders by Tuesday or Wednesday. Check out the fabulous Christmas and Halloween designs at www.franticstamper.com/marthastewart.htm
BO BUNNY PRESS (BBP)
Our BBP order is in and expected to arrive towards the end of the month! Wonderful lines to watch for include: Delilah, Kitchen Spice, Gypsy, Flutter Butter, Boo Crew, Tis the Season and St. Nick.
Watch the new products page for these soon!
AMERICAN CRAFTS (AMC)
I ordered their new lines of papers and embellishments a couple weeks ago, and already I can’t recall all the particulars…. I know there are 3 or 4 lines of papers and a WHOLE NEW program of brads, glitter brads, pearl brads, etc that was really great!! I love embellishments, don’t you? Of course, new thickers are coming too, and also some clear stamps!!
PRIMA MARKETING (PRI)
We have a $3,000 shipment of new Prima flowers on the way! Unfortunately, it’s not all the new stuff yet…. Seems they are not shipping everything at once. But what is coming are Gypsy Petals, Heirloom Paper Leaves, Sprites 3, Homespun Bittles, Camelot Roses as well as a restocking assortment of flowers we already sold out since last month (Fleur Danseur, Gallery Roses, etc)
Watch for these to be uploaded to the website late next week.
We just got in the 4 seasonal squeeze punches for all. You can see them at http://www.franticstamper.com/fiskars.htm Four fun designs including an acorn, a pumpkin and more. Other new punches will be coming out later this summer.
BEST CREATIONS (BC)
I believe our order is already on the way. Yes, new CHA products BEFORE CHA!!! Lines include: Tropical Paradise, Sweetie Pie, Water Fun, Make a Wish, and of course a Halloween and a Christmas line
BASIC GREY (BG)
Mumm is the word…. As in I can’t say what is coming….. all I can say is we ordered everything twice over and some things even more! It’s all gorgeous. Four fantastic lines. I definitely have my favorite, but if I told you…. well, let’s just say I can’t tell you until CHA. But OMG you are going to love love love these!! Stay tuned.
PROVO CRAFT (PRO)
I already told you about the new embossing folders….. they’re up on the site and can be pre-ordered already. Details at www.franticstamper.com/provo-cuttlebug.htm
Speaking of embossing folders, we took the plunge and have ordered Sizzix’s version of the embossing folders (Textured something… I can’t remember the term). Anyways, we ordered all the existing ones (which will be here shortly) and all the new ones (coming out later this summer). I will upload these in the next couple of weeks. Remember, lots going on, so my time is filled up with filling orders…… I need to hire a full time web person to keep up!!!
You are going to FLIP at all the fantastic new designs, especially the ultra cute Halloween and Christmas ones. They are coming out with a TON of $1.99 price point stamp, many are favorites from larger sets, so you won’t have to spend $9.99 to get the one image you like off a set. We expect them to arrive late August.
Great new line of punches…. Some fantastic punch/emboss combos. I think we will have these in early August.
Another great line of punches, much like their Winter CHA release --- multi shape punches. My favorite is a Fleur de lis one, and I also really like the Ice Cream Cone and the snowman.
I’ll try to get these on the site this weekend so you can start pre-ordering.
JUST RITE STAMPERS (JUS)
We used to carry their stamps…… and then we stopped…. And now we are starting again. Why? Well, I wasn’t paying attention. Their new stamps are the coolest thing!!! You get a wood mount with grooves, and rubber with grooved back. You can interchange words and images to make these fantastic medallions. Oh, just wait til you see them!!! Since we have no space in the warehouse, I know my employees are going to think I’m crazy cuz I just don’t know where we will find the space to stock them…. but they were so darn cute, I had to get them! You will love them too!
You can go here to see card samples: http://www.justritestampers.com/custom.aspx?ID=27
The best part is you can use the scallped circle punches from Marvy or EK Success or even your Spellbinder nestabilities to create these fun medallions! I love this look!
Tons of great clear stamps with mix and match designs. They’ve really outdone themselves with this line. We should have them within the next couple of weeks (boy I’m going to be busy adding things to the site)
TATTERED ANGELS (TAT)
New colors of Glimmer Mist for Fall and Winter of course…. New Glimmer Screens and clear stamps as well. Already ordered, already on the way. Watch for them soon.
8 New Smooch colors are already here, and already flying off the shelves!!! Get them at www.franticstamper.com/smooch.htm
BUT WAIT… THERE’S MORE!
That’s all the orderes I have already placed…. But this weekend, I will be working on October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket for a start.
CHA is just around the corner and we will be closed July 19th through 23rd. Right now, we have a lot of orders on the books, so I hope to get them all done before we leave. It’s good to be busy!
