CHA Winter 2014: Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper

mh29 copy

One of my favorite styled booths, as well as favorite lines of the show was Maggie Holmes Style Book for Crate Paper.

This is her third line for Crate Paper, and the overall feel coordinates with the two previous releases beautifully while adding new patterns, motifs, and designs.

I so enjoy her eye for design as well as the combination of pinks, blues, golds, and more.

I love the way numbers and patterns are incorporated into the embellishments of this lovely line.

The patterned papers look like they will work with the older lines as well – this is something I plan on checking out asap! If you’re wondering why I view this as such a positive thing, I will explain.

I like my craft products to have a long shelf life. I don’t want to feel like I have to use something ASAP or it will “expire” or become outdated or somehow not be useful anymore. With Maggie’s lines I know that she will have style consistency that will freshen up, breathe new life, and generally extend the shelf life of older products I perhaps haven’t used or found a place for yet.

and Style Board certainly brings new patterns, more gold, and lots of possibility!

Loving the stickers, thickers, and well let us be honest.

I’m going to end up with pretty much this whole line. Can’t really see anything I don’t need and/or want!

From the dimension on the stickers to the tape to the die cuts – it is all so great.

Especially excited about these sticky pads for journaling and layering on my pages.

and here you can see a bowl full of Maggie’s lovely die cuts.

Oh yes, and lets not forget that she now has an embossing folder (doilies!!) as well as thin dies to coordinate with her line.

and gold tape? yes please!

Sequins too?

If you need me, I’ll be counting the days until I can play with these great new products. The good news? Maggie’s new line will begin shipping to stores later this month!

  1. Cool line! I am anxious to see what you create with this. Thank you for sharing. I know it is simply what you do, but I am so happy you choose to share.

  2. Oh my. I totally agree. I need everything in Styleboard & hoard her past lines so I’m so excited about this release. Maggie is a genius!

  3. I so need a die cut/embossing machine. This will push me over the edge. Love these dies and all the rest. That tape! Awesome. Thanks for sharing. Michelle t
