New Collection – CAROUSEL

Hi friends!! I am super excited to share with you a peek at my new collection today! It’s called CAROUSEL and I hope you love it as much as I do! The colors are bright and vibrant and perfect for your summertime memories and your happy everyday moments too! Think cotton candy pink, vintage teal and popcorn yellow! The colors really pop and will bring any project to life!!!

I wanted to incorporate a bit of the CAROUSEL theme into this collection and include some fun icons in the artwork… ferris wheels, circus tents, the cute ticket booth, carousel animals and more. I really really LOVE how they turned out and especially because you can use them in so many ways! They are so whimsical and cute and totally work for party decor, scrapbook pages about your kids, birthday cards etc. They fall right in that window of trendy and cute and also totally versatile – not too sophisticated and not too juvenile either. My goal was to be able to use these products for our family memories and also for our little ones too and I am so happy with how it turned out. Depending on which products you choose and how you spin it, CAROUSEL really works for all ages!

Then of course, there are LOTS of everyday icons and fun art that goes with everything – hearts, stars, bows, florals and lots of great staple patterns like stripes, polka dots, marble, scallops, buffalo check, etc. I just LOVE playing up those basics in new and interesting ways and I think you are going to have fun using all of the papers in this collection!

I could talk about it all for hours, but I’ll let the images speak for themselves and not keep you waiting any longer… Here’s a pretty big peek into what CAROUSEL is all about!! We will be sharing lots more photos and full images of all the papers and products in a few weeks, so stay tuned!! Some of these are the artist renderings of the products so you can get a good idea of what they will look like, but I can’t wait for you to see the real things too!! I am SUPER EXCITED about everything and especially the new products like the puffy word stickers, banner shapes, RIBBON!!, the metal enamel shapes!!, and the ribbon bows! I’ve done smaller ribbon bows before, but these are BIG and I think you are going to love the size of them!! So fun! Also, the way the ribbon is packaged… I can’t wait for you to see! It is total happiness for me!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little peek and it makes me even more excited to show you everything in real life and in use on some projects! Right now my studio is covered in all the new products and I am having so much fun creating with all of this. We will have lots of fun ideas and inspiration for using everything and I can’t wait to share it all with you!

For now, because I am so excited, we are doing a giveaway of the new products!! Leave a comment here on this post telling me what you are most excited about seeing from the new collection. I will draw a winner at random and announce it on June 21st. Also watch my Instagram for ways to get extra entries!! P.S. You can head over to the Crate Paper blog and enter to win their giveaway of the new CAROUSEL products too!!

Good luck!!

    I have always loved most things vintage. Then I worked for Janie and Jack and fell in love with whimsical vintage prints for children. It would bring back memories of the turn of the century home I lived in as a teen with it’s different antique wall paper in each room. Your Carousel line brings me back to those times in my life. I love the scene paper. I love every floral print you create. I love the things in your lines that make them so unique from everything else in the industry. Somehow you perfectly marry color with neutrals, vintage with modern, and sophisticated and whimsical styles. Purchasing scrapbook products is always an investment but your lines are so timeless that I know my love for them will never fade. Please continue designing! I appreciate your work with Crate so very much!

    What is there not to love about all your collection? *Hugs* They get better every time. Something about carousels, the magical wonderland that you can’t leave behind. You’ve brought this out in this collection. Awesome job. Can’t wait until this all comes out, the paper and the bows are what I’d be getting first…. if not all.!

    Oh wow! Out of all the Crate paper, you Maggie all ways are a must buy!! I was in Hobby Lobby the other day and I saw that Gather came out for PL and I just jumped on it!! Forget that I have way too many PL cards, it was your collection and who can help it.
    Needless to say I am absolutely obsessed w/ your collections and Carousel is no different! From what I have seen I am loving the gold foil ticket paper, chipboard thickers, and sticker sheet! The paper is a must, that goes without saying. This collection screams Coney Island! I am going in July and your new collection would be perfect for endless fun layouts!!
