  11. Leanna Mohr says:

    Love the video’s, hard to select just one, love the WeRMemory Keepers New
    Envelope Board Punch, and than the Printable Skin. I know what I what for
    Mom’s Day.

  12. Oh my gosh, I want the Craft Attitude. Bazillions ways to use it. Also loved the envelope maker. Cannot wait to purchase them. Loved all of the CHA videos, so informative. Did not get to watch the ustream live, but did view it the next day. Thanks Megan for all the hard work you do, keeping us updated on everything. We love you.

  13. sherry says:

    Great products. Like the over the door armoir but it weighs 35 lbs. empty which I think is heavy. Couldn’t the small drawers on the bottom be made of a lighter material to save some weight? The envelop board is so clever too.

  14. JD says:

    I love Jinger’s new collection. The storage and the new paper lines are fabulous.

  15. Laurie says:

    I am so excited for the products you have been showing from CHA. It really does seem to have that extra spark this year…maybe it’s from surviving 12/21/12!! My favorite is the envelope punch. I can hardly wait to bring that home! Waiting, waiting, waiting…so impatient!

  16. geri says:

    Love, Love the Craft Armoire I want one!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Kris says:

    I absolutely love the new Silhouette Portrait and the new envelope punch board. Can’t wait! Thanks for sharing all the wonderful goodies for those of us that couldn’t attend CHA.

  18. Margaret K says:

    I love the envolope maker and the Craft Armoire, The project life is pretty cool, I could see me doing a project life book where as I am not a scrapbooker normally. Love the videos and the insperation you always send our way. Keep it up we love you Megan.

  19. Jan Lynn says:

    I L-O-V-E Jinger’s craft storage unit. Project Life fits into all of our lives also. The envelope board is wonderful too. All the products are beautiful but these are my favorites.

  20. Mabel says:

    Great videos Megan! Love the Craft Armoire and the WeRMemory Keepers envelope board. So many great things coming…Love Project Life too. :)

  21. Peg says:

    What to choose…I love the craft armoir and the envelope maker. Actually loved them all!

  22. Chris E says:

  24. Colleen says:

    Everything is so GREAT!! I am so excited to about the Craft Armorie by Jinger Adams, it looks so great and would look even better in my craft room!! I also love all the paper lines, because in my daughters words “I think you have a paper addiction” Thanks

  25. Lillian says:

    Wow! How fantastic all of it!

  26. Christine S says:

    I can’t possibly pick just one so I will give my top three!! Jinger Adams’ Craft Armoire, Project Life, and the Envelope Board Punch by We R Memory Keepers!!

  27. Terry Hamilton says:

    Hi Megan Elizabeth, you are so bubbly & fun to watch. I don’t have enough storage so Jinger’s Craft Armoire that hangs over your craft room door is a must have & my #1 fav so far. I can’t wait until it comes out!
    Also terribly intrigued by Craft Attitude’s “skin.” My mind is buzzing with ideas! I can’t wait to see more of your projects with it.
    And, because I love kraft I have to add the Fotomatr Memory Organization System album & pages & embellishments. You can change that up into anything!
    Thanx for the fun reports from Cha!

  28. Maria says:

    I love Jinger’s product. I even showed it to my husband telling him to either build me one or to Just buy one for me. LOL I do love the idea my crafting area is in the garage and it’s cold in winter and hot in summer. This would be perfect to have some things inside and the rest can stay in the hot/cold garage.

  29. Klee W. says:

    Oh my, such great creations, love the Craft Attitude, right up my alley!!!

    Thanks so all the video’s you done to show us these new products, wowza!

  30. Sandy Christman says:

    I can’t wait for Jinger’s cabinet to come out. That was a fantastic idea! I have to get that. I don’t think it matter what size your craft room is, you can use this. I really enjoyed all you videos on CHA. It the next thing to being there.
    All the new paper lines are awesome. Will you be getting the skins and teach us how to use them, they looked awesome as well.

  31. Renee Roberts says:

    OMG!!! The craft Armoire is the thing!!! I need about 10 lined up on the wall and it would be awesome…..

  32. Sonia says:

    I love “Project Life”! I hope I find a retailer in Europe! It is not so easy to find everything you need/want for scrapbooking over here!
    Oh! And I WANT WANT WANT the Envelope Board Punch by We R Memory Keepers!! :D Love it!
    Greetings from far far away!

  33. Elaine Baker says:

    Really like both the Craft Armoire and the Envelope Punch Board. Tough to choose between the 2 but guess it would be the Armoire.

  34. Minnie Joe says:

    Love each videos
    I love Jinger Adams over door hanger
    We R Memory Keepers-envelope scoring unching-can’nt wait to see this item in store ASAP

  35. Chris says:

    Envelope maker and Jinger’s cabinet.

  36. Debra Peloso says:

    I love the craft cabinet by Jinger Adams. Awesome. I could think of some fun uses for all of your finds though. Thanks Megan.

  37. Iva says:

    Awesome videos. Thanks. I’m in love with the craft cabinet and the
    smaller scoring board!!! Gotta have!

  38. Jan says:

    The scoring board What a fantastic idea I love it! Thanks for sharing

  39. Debbie Eslinger says:

    since i am into paper right now I have to pick MME’s papers, the envelope board is a top second

  40. Melinda Wasilchin says:

    The videos were great, I especially loved the Viva decor projects!

  41. Nancy says:

    Have already ordered the envelope scoring board. Can’t wait for it to come. The highlights from CHA have been great. Anxious to see new items in stores.

  42. Daphne Held says:

    Bought Project Life as a New Year’s gift to myself….love the concept and it’s so easy….and having fun with the moments.!

  43. Jodie R says:

    CHA is like Christmas for me every time! I love Gingers armoire and am super excited about the Silhouette Cameo! I gotta get one quick! LOL! Thanks for being Santa this year, Megan!!

  44. Pam says:

    I’m intrigued by the silhouette machine – want to see more. Thanks for the peek!


  45. My favorite is the Over the Door storage unit. Great idea and design.

    Dianne Bell –

  46. dianne davis says:

    Love, Love all of them, but it’s all about who can hide/organize the most stuff, so Jinger Adams Craft Armoire is the best of the items, because all the other new awesome items, will fit into the Armoire, So How cool is that! an AWESOME AMOIRE with AWESOME STUFF INSIDE!!!

  47. JoAnn Weiss says:

    Loved Jinger’s Craft Armoire and Project Life is something I’d like to see more of ~ Looks like everyone was having a great time!!!!!

  48. Christeen Baker says:

    Wow for Jinger Adam’s over-door storage unit but there are so many great things it is hard to choose one. I think the envelope maker is the coolest must have new tool for this year.

  49. Barbara says:

    I just love the videos from CHA!!

  50. Claudia says:

    The “over the door” craft storage is a good idea but….can’t imagine what that would do to the door. It is light weight when empty but think about all that weight when it’s full.

  51. The Envelope maker first choice it’s awesome! Then Ginger storage. But really liked all of the stuff! Thanks you are so sweet to take us there through video! YOU ROCK! LOVE YOU

  52. Betts Paschke says:

    I would’ve loved being a “mouse in your pocket,” ’cause it looks like you had so much fun. I can’t even imagine seeing all the new things that are going to be available!
    Thanks for showing them to us!

  53. Debbie says:

    The new Craft Attitude Printable Film looks like it could be a lot of fun. Can’t wait to try it.

  54. arlene ranaldi says:

    Love Jinger’s storage cabinet. Does anyone know how
    much it cost? Trying to plan ahead. TIA Arlene
