Hi there! Today is one of my favorite days of the year because I get to reveal my newest collection for Crate Paper!
As always I’m super excited to finally be able to show you my new products and share with you some of my favorite things! Well, they are all my favorite, but who’s keeping track! This new collection, called CHASING DREAMS, is all about celebrating your happy memories and chasing your dreams! Whether those dreams consist of traveling, creating, trying new things or simply living a happy and delightful life with your loved ones, I hope you find inspiration in the new CHASING DREAMS collection to document your journey along the way.
The bright yellows and pinks have my heart and the addition of some fun greens that I’m currently LOVING breathe fresh life into this range of products. There’s lots of classic Maggie icons that I can’t seem to scrapbook without – cameras, butterflies and of course beautiful florals! And then we’ve added some fun new things as well, like the rabbit, vintage inspired book covers, the cockatoo birds and a peacock. I hope you love this happy colorful collection!!The chipboard is a great representation of the collection and you can really get a feel for the vibe of the whole product line. The big title “happy heart” is a favorite phrase of mine and is so versatile to use on anything that makes your heart happy! I’m LOVING the prize ribbons and vintage trophy cup art work in the chipboard and you can see that we used those as inspiration for some of the props at the photo shoot! The huge prize ribbons turned out to be so beautiful!
Of course I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I love it all, but I just have to highlight a few of my favorite new products! I really wanted to focus on some fun small embellishments for this collection and I’m super thrilled with how they turned out! I might have gasped the first time I saw these gold puffy stitched hearts in person! You are going to LOVE them! So cute for scrapbooks, cards, packaging etc! I’m also loving the buttons and the rhinestone gems! How amazing is the bow rhinestone!! It has adhesive on it, but you can also peel that off and string twine through the top to hang it from a tag, planner or mini album!! LOVE!
The ephemera packs are definitely always a top priority and a favorite product for me! I give careful attention to each and every one of these pieces to make sure they are not only cute but super usable as well… and I love how much variety we got into this pack! There are some dimensional layered pieces in this set too!
A collection is never complete without stickers and thickers. Right! This time we included 3 alphabet sets — a good basic, a super fabulous gold foil set and a fun trendy one as well – hot pink with gold glitter on top!! I can’t wait to mix and match them on my projects because they all work really well together!
You are going to love the puffy stickers! They are so cute and a great smaller size – perfect for using on tags, mini albums and cards or for layering in with the bigger stickers too. I can also never get enough LABEL stickers! So this time I decided to include a whole bunch right on the tiny words and phrases sticker sheet. Love how it turned out!
See the butterflies below? They come 4 to a set and they are layered with fringe! All you have to do is fluff up the layers and separate the fringe a bit and they become so dimensional! They are fabulous enough to stand alone but also play well with everything else!Here’s a look at all of the papers! This green and pink floral is definitely one of my favorites that I know I will be using a lot! Also LOVING the blue florals and the paper with the vintage inspired book covers. Oh, and the yellow floral… can’t get enough! I love the contrast between the more trendy and artsy papers and the vintage feeling papers. They are so great to mix together for that perfect eclectic balance of old meets new! I have too many favorites to list! Which ones do you love the most? I can’t wait to hear!
There’s even more to share so stay tuned for lots more fun images from our photo shoot, close ups of the products and projects using the new collection!
