cha winter 2013 : simple stories

I'll admit that I've been procrastinating about writing up the Simple Stories booth from CHA Winter 2013, but only because I took so many photos that I was afraid it would take forever to finish it! Their three new collections and additions to the Sn@p collection were some of my favorite items at the show, though, so it's time for me to get this one out there!

I'll start with my favorite section of the booth, the extension to the Sn@p collection. Introduced last fall as an easy album system for 6x8 binders, the line has now been expanded to include 12x12 albums and a whole new set of 12x12 divided page protectors!

Just looking at these new designs gives me so many ideas for getting hundreds of vacation photos from the past decade (and more) quickly and easily into albums. The pockets are sized to fit the cut-apart elements on Simple Stories' patterned papers, and you can see the full lineup of sizes that will be available when this line ships in late April/early May here.

The Sn@p consumables line has also received an update, with several new styles of 3x4 and 4x6 Sn@p card pads (I love all of the Snap pads from their last collection) being released along with all new embellishments and stamps.

Vintage Bliss is one of three new paper lines being introduced at the show, and it's perfectly girly and lovely with its woodgrains, florals, and bright pops of aqua, pink, and yellow.

24/Seven is Simple Stories' entry into the extremely popular "everyday" category. The themes of "captured," "documented," and "hello" are represented here amongst trendy icons such as hexagons and arrows.

Urban Traveler is Simple Stories' third and final collection on our tour of their new releases. It contains all the maps, camera images, and phrases that you'd expect to find in a travel line and is decked out with lots of bold blues, oranges, and reds.
