So here it is: Kory K's Hot New Product Round-Up of July 27, 2012:
The first few things I have to show you are from Echo Park's newest collection, Everyday Eclectic. It's a modern, muted yet still bright, fun set of papers- including a great page of cardstock sticker alphas. (I grow increasingly addicted to letter stickers with each sheet I buy...)
Everyone knows my devotion to plain old kraft- but check out the herringbone wood pattern on its opposite side. Reminds me of the floor in an apartment I had some good times in...
The pink side goes a little too far into the 'super-girly' look that's predominate in way too many new releases- but the chevron wood pattern makes up for it and gives me the strength to carry on!
Their journalling cards are even cool. I love the 'pay-per-view' telescope in the bottom right. Fun!
Here's the letter alphas! Wood and white! Blue! And trusty black! I'll need two sheets of these hot little numbers (alphas?)!
Next, I've got some highlights from We R Memory Keepers Inc's new Hall Pass Collection.
That's their 12x12 piece of vintage green sexiness, 'Pop Quiz.' Both sides are such eye-catchers, I'll need three sheets. Two to use and one to hoard and stare at every so often. Dammit, I love good paper designs.
That, there, is 'Classroom.' Also from We R's Hall Pass Collection. Journalling cards are, like alpha stickers and washi, two of my at-the-moment favorite thing to have- I like the entire design on a small scale action/can use for almost anything aspect of journalling cards. The 'Hello...my name is...' card makes the entire 12x12 sheet worth a dollar all on its own.
More woodgrain action! This time from those sexily clever peoples over at Studio Calico. Want. Now.
The last of the eyecatchers are these rolls of washi tape from Freckled Fawn. I've not heard of Freckled Fawn- up until about a week ago, and now I seem to see them popping up everywhere.
That's 'Foreign Newspaper.' Part of me wishes it were more monotone. Part of me likes the colors and says, 'shut up and love it as it is...'
I couldn't help but put in some more hardcore woodgrain love. I love wood. I love woodgrain. Even when it's as cartoonily done as it is here- I love it.
Hop on over to scrapbook.com and order some new nice lookin' supplies- you won't find these at Michaels! However, you will find this:
Just kidding, Michaels, you know I love you- and I know it's hard to stay on top of the times when you have to buy for a hundreds of stores. But really? Discount DVDs?
So that's all, for now! I'll be back later to fill you in on all the fun at last night's 'Mix N Mingle' at Paper Crown! And coming up even later/after/soon, a HALLOWEEN PRESHOW!
Don't forget tonight's episode of "CRAFT WARS: LIVE with KORY AND DARLA!" Showtime is
