1: Alcohol Inks by Ranger: if you have not played with these yet, they are amazing. I'm totally in love with alcohol inks. They are the only thing I really use on my cards anymore. They are quick and really hard to mess up.
|The solid pink cardstock and the journaling circle are both inked to make them match better|
5: ATG Adhesive: if you've ever considered the big pink adhesive gun, I highly recommend it. Its a bit big at first, but it is seriously so cheap I can't not use it. Now to keep it from falling off its wall mount and accidentally misting the white walls
6: Echo Park: I seem to fall in love more and more with Echo Park. Hello Summer was one of my favorite lines this year. It was perfect for Wisconsin summers since it wasn't all palm trees and beachy. It was perfect for the colors that are common for us.
7: My Minds Eye: one of my new favorites are My Minds Eye. Their Lost and Found Lines are some of my favorite. The Lost and Found III line quickly became my vacation favorite. I will be posting those pages in the upcoming weeks. I love their use of the color grey, which is another favorite. And even crazier is the fact that these colors are a little move toward vintage that is out of my norm.

These were some of my favorite new products of 2012. I am looking forward to CHA Winter which will be coming up in the next few weeks. I'm excited to see the new lines and trends. First I need to get back to work so I can have some spending money.
