Crate Paper, Teresa Collins and More!

We just received the latest from Crate Paper (love, love, love)! I noticed it's still waiting to be put on display (like it deserves), but we're working on getting that out very soon! Random, Farmhouse and more, this stuff is top notch!

We finally have Teresa Collins' products! We've ordered these in the past and they just haven't appeared. But it's here, and it's gorgeous. There are three new lines: World Traveler (my favorite), Haunted Hallows and Christmas Home. These are on the shelf, ready for you to take home.

We also have tons of new goodies from Maya Rd. There are new mini chipboard shapes, chipboard/acrylic books, and yes - new trims! There are new zipper trim colors as well as some beautiful flower trims.

On a side note, we also have 3 new full Cricut cartridges in the house, one of which was designed by Teresa Collins - what a coincidence! Check them out next time you're in.

Pink Paislee has Arrived!

We have the latest from Pink Paislee in stock! There's Vintage Vogue, Nantucket (my favorite), wood letters and more! I've been out for a couple days (last minute fun with the family before school starts), so I'm guessing it's on the shelf by now. But we have so many new lines on the shelf we keep running out of room! Be sure to stop in and check out what's new.

More New Arrivals

The list goes on! We also received 7 new lines from Bo Bunny, and they're finally in the computer! The new lines include some of their best yet (in my opinion, at least). Et Cetera is right up my alley - I love the vintage and worn feel of this collection! Father Christmas and Blitzen cover both ends of the Christmas spectrum. Forever Fall and Garden Girl offer some amazing saturated colors. Sweet Tooth is an adorable food-inspired line that will make you crave sweets (well, at least so you can scrapbook the pictures of it). Finally, Welcome Home (also one of my favorites) uses browns, blues & greens to welcome you... Katie and I agree this would make a great mini album for a housewarming gift.

There are four new collections we ordered from 3 Bugs in a Rug. These lines stray a bit from what they've released in the past. We love them and hope you will, too. Bake Me a Cake is a sweet baking-inspired line, and Ashtyn is an adorable girl/teen line with a great variety of coordinating patterns. Deck the Halls is adorable, as is Under the Sea (sweet and salty all at once).

We also have many new basic theme papers in stock from Sugartree. These fill several requests for water, snow, etc. papers we've been looking for.

Last, but certainly not least, we have a couple new lines from Echo Park. The Apothecary Emporium is a lovely Halloween line, and Happy Days is bright and cheery. We purchaed everything with these lines, if that gives you any indication of just how cool these are.

Phew! With all of that said, there were still about 9 more boxes in the foyer when I left. I know for a fact that a few of them are more new collections, but we'll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned!


That's all I can say lately. The boxes have been pouring in, and we're working our fastest to get through them. Here's what came in this week so far:

We have the new lines from My Mind's Eye, and they're flying off the shelf! The latest, Lost & Found 2, is a hit with it's new color schemes (especially the yellow). There's also Lost & Found Christmas, which is just beautiful! There are matching chipboard and embellishments for all the lines. Their new Halloween line, Mischievous, is also awesome... It's orange, black & light blue - a great color combo! There are also several 6x6 coordinating paper pad sets which are great for card-makers.
7 Gypsies has a new collection, call Off the Wall. This line is unique... I love that there are silhouettes on each page (especially the one with the high tops). Leave it to 7G to come up with something this cool!

We have more Grant Studios paper by Grace Taylor. This round reminds me of 50s homemakers with tea... super cute!

We also have several new stacks from DieCuts with a View - Lemon Flower, Collage Musings, Lady Couture, Tradewinds and Tattered Time. They're all very relevant; very cool!

It all started with 3 pieces of paper...

...that Angela put in my Design Team kit this month. They were from the bright, cheery, new Kaiser Crafts "Miss Nelly" collection and I loved it! So, I added 2 more pieces of patterned paper, a bit of cardstock, some chipboard embellishments, a sticker sheet, a few labels and then I went to work. I was able to make 3 pretty, fully embellished, 12"x12" layouts AND seven - that's right 7! - cards. All for less than $12.00. Wow, what a deal. Kaiser Crafts is terrific and they have several beautiful, new lines in stock right now. Stop in and get yours today.

A little glimpse...

Hi everyone!

Angela from the design team here with a little teaser for you:

Who is this Simon character? How snuggly is he? And, of course, how cute is that little banner?! Get your answers over here on my blog, and get that awesome Paper Boy collection at Scrappy Chic!

Simple Stories and More!

We have the latest from Simple Stories - Baby Steps and Happy Day. This is the company that makes it simple to scrapbook! They are out on the shelf now.

We also have new colored flowers from Petaloo, as well as a new company in the house - FabScraps! This new vendor comes to us from South Africa, and (we're told) they're a big name there! We like it too, so we hope you check it out next time you're in. Very cool stuff, ladies!

Imaginisce has three new lines out, Geek is Chic (love this), a Fall and a Holiday line. They are cute and whimsy, as always, and come with tons of fun $1 stamps, great accessories, a full assortment.

SRM brings us new Tubes in addition to the original and the Wand. These things are great for goodie bags, showers, 'just because' moments and more! We have a display of fun ideas for the tubes set up this weekend. There are also all new clear stickers, as well as some giant crystals that work great with the Tubes.

American Crafts is also in the house - both Amy Tangerine's new products (these are adorable) and NightFall, Garden Cafe, even new Thickers! There are also new lines from Pebbles (now part of American Crafts) - an extension to their New Addition (baby) line, and Fresh Goods. We think you'll like what you see.

On my way out, I saw there were at least 7 more large boxes to open, like products from My Mind's Eye, Pioneer, Echo Park and more! Stay tuned for details...

There are still so many boxes for us to get out on the shelf, but in the meantime, here's what you'll when you come in tomorrow...

We have a new set of lines from Ruby Rock-It (branded Bella this time around), Paper Boy and Paper Doll. These are great, all in bright colors and whimsical themes.

We have a bunch of new themed paper lines from Moxxie, like football, Zoofari, picnic, softball, baseball, one called Hometown Celebration, and Midnight Dreary (which is an amazing and different Halloween line).

Plus, we received a large shipment of SmashBooks and supplies! We have the three new books - Eco (green), International (yellow) and Simple (orange). We have a bunch of fun embellishments and goodies for your SmashBooks, as well!

Look at all the money....

...I'm going to save at the Scrappy Chic garage sale this Sunday! The bargains are always absolutely amazing and the selection cannot be beat. In the past I've bought Basic Grey paper and Jolie's embellishments and buttons and ribbon and flowers and acrylic stamps and... I cannot wait to see what all the sellers bring to tempt me with this time! Remember, one person's trash is another's treasure. Sunday - noon - at Scrappy Chic. I'll see you all there.

New Book in Town

In the past, there were idea books for titles and quotes, but none have been on the market in some time now. Well, there's a new book in town! Introducing Inspiration Station, by Betsy Flot. This book has it all - trust me, I've looked through it. Here's how Betsy describes her book:

"This spiral bound book measures 5 ½ by 8 ½ and has 608 pages with over 13,700 titles, toppers, quotes, and verses that will inspire and delight while unleashing your creativity for all your scrapbooking and card making needs.

Inside you will find thousands of titles, short quotes, movie titles, simple words, or phrases. The array of topics covered will help any scrapbooker record memories in the most engaging and expressive way possible."

Get your copy while they last... You'll find them at the checkout.

It's Rollin' In...

We've got several new products in stock so far this week. We just received a shipment from KaiserCraft, and I love these new lines! Miss Nelly is totally floral and beautiful. My favorite of the show was Hunt & Gather, which is also here. I'm not normally a fan of bugs, but this paper covers everything about the outdoors, from tents to bugs and everything in between... Love it! We received more TJ stamp sets. These rubber cling stamps come in many themes, and we have a good sampling of their products for you to try. Karen Foster arrived and, as usual, there are tons of themes in stock. The newest is their school line, which covers the grades and plenty for the first day back (yes, it's almost here). We have a new company in stock, called Glimpses. They caught our eye at CHA with their Fight Like a Girl line of breast cancer awareness products - products that are hip and send a message. They also have a great military line that we added to our stash.

In other products, we have new inventory from Ranger! We received the Black Gesso from Claudine as well as the Snow Cap Mixative for alcohol inks. There are also new Surfaces, including tags in black and kraft to play with. Some of you may have seen a fun new trend in card-making - HoneyPop! This corrugated tissue paper comes in several colors, and works great for pop-up cards. Here's a video about the products if you're not familiar with them yet. We didn't pick up stamp sets, just the honeycomb paper. But we'd be happy to order any you're interested in.

Well, that's a lot so far, and UPS/FedEx haven't even stopped by yet today! Stay tuned for more new arrivals later this week!
