I’m having a fan-girl moment here. *sigh* Seriously excited about how my favorite companies just keep getting better, and shipping product to stores in the near future. Here are three specific examples:
I need to take a moment to love on Echo Park. The Christmas themed goodies, Victoria Garden, the Halloween line… oh there is so much to love. The *squeals* from me will come especially because they are taking it out of the paper realm and into brads and chipboard accents with this release as well. This extra bonus from a brand that is frequently among my favorites is most welcome! I’m looking forward to these brads in particular from the Holly Jolly Christmas line. I love using decorative brads in so many ways, and these are timeless and for the most part will work on both holiday and non-seasonal pages.
The Crafters Workshop showed us a lot of “WOW!” this show – and their teaming up with rock star mixed media artist Julie Fei-Fan Balzer for some new templates takes the company to a whole new level. With mists, paints, multi-medium, and a number of other ways to use them, these stencils will give added dimension to all kinds of projects. I’m obsessed with getting my hands on the “Punchinella” template shown above in particular. You will be seeing a lot of their templates both in my future classes *and* right here. So in love.
I am a fan-girl when it comes to Webster’s Pages trims as well as most everything they put out. They are always the most amazing on the market, and this show was no exception. With the wonderful textures and colors, variety of widths and materials, I’m always excited to see what’s next. I’m anticipating the arrival of all of the new ones, but most especially the “Western Romance” line trims pictured above.
