new loves | paper

I’ve covered a lot of favorite papers in some of my spotlights, but I have a round-up of more of my favorites here today that I’ve not shown yet but so want to.

So get ready for some pretty paper…

Glitz had beautiful new paper and so many lovely garlands. Loved looking at them!

Here are two sneaks of Margie’s new paper line for Bazzill. *love* classic Margie.

Isn’t this floral from Crate Paper just so pretty? I’m loving the country chic stuff coming out. So cute for paper crafting.

Here’s another lovely pattern – this is from Die Cuts with a View from a new paper pad.

Let’s not forget Echo Park! I love their papers, especially these two – they are my favorites of all of them.

Transparencies from Fancy Pants were rockin! I can see that heart one used with alcohol ink on it’s back to show through… oh yes.

Oh Lily Bee! Their lines? spot on. SO much paper LOVE. Do you see that chevron pattern? all the polka dots? the fab colors? yes please!

Teresa Collins also was on paper fire! With textured papers and her classic damask patterns (and you KNOW how I feel about damask!) the lines were filled with great papers.

Last but not least, here’s October Afternoon! Colors and patterns and butterflies oh my! So many great choices.

In fact, October Afternoon wasn’t the only company I noticed returning to a paper line with more choices. Many companies seem to be returning to a line with a dozen or more papers. I’m not sure if this is because of the increase in paper pads (and therefore needing more designs) or what – but it does seem to be a trend where the previous shows we’ve been seeing fewer papers per line.

Many or few – it’s clear that there are a lot of paper choices, and something fabulous for every style!

  1. Some real pretty ones here. I love the Echo Park ones too. And October Afternoon – that goes without saying. OA used to have eight double-sided papers and a die cut one, then last summer at CHA they ditched the die cut in favour of three more patterned papers to make 12 in each line for 24 patterns. I love the idea of having that many because often I don’t like all of them and sometimes some I like I can’t get to work. Out of 24 I’ve got a lot of choices. Because of the increase in patterns, the 8 x 8 pad got huge too. Nice.
    Thanks for your CHA updates!

  2. Can’t wait to see what you’ll be doing with all these new papers May! Here’s to a year full of possibilities 🙂
