CHA: Polka Dot Party


 Be enchanted by the delicate and endearing beauty of Polka Dot Party. Charming graphics highlight the sophisticated femininity of the collection: butterflies, polka dots, chevron, hearts, and handwritten sentiments are presented in hues of pink, mint, gray and yellow. Join the fun of Polka Dot Party!

This collection includes 21 double-sided patterned papers and three specialty papers. Eight sheets of Thickers in various colors and finishes coordinate wonderfully with the sticker sheets, die-cut frames, and other embellishments. Previous favorites, including large tags, die-cut cards and fabric bows are joined by new items: fringe flowers, ribbon photo corners and two pattern brayer sets for quickly adding fun patterns on paper.

CHA Spotlight: Lucky Charm


From American Crafts:

Featuring an endearing assortment of charm bracelet icons — flowers, horses, hot air balloons, hearts and arrows — Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm is a dreamland of color and patterns. Sweet pinks, aqua, yellow, red-orange and cream are grounded with a fun navy blue that make this collection charming. Lucky you.

This inviting collection features 24 patterned papers, plus five specialty papers such as printed vellum and gold metallic ruffle paper. Thickers and stickers abound, with new additions making an appearance, including die-cut cards. Brilliant.

This collection blew me away at first sight – I am very excited to see the coral/melon and navy blue combo, and the designs are utterly fantastic for spring or anytime crafting.

Dear Lizzy jar paper [technique video]

So I was playing around with something to spruce up the Dear Lizzy jar paper that I was using to make an embellishment – and I thought I’d whip up a video to share. It’s no secret that I’m loving the new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line – and I am having a whole lot of fun with this sheet of paper and all those cute jars.
