My Mind’s Eye is getting a lot of mileage out of some of their old collections with the help of Michael’s Stores!
Melissa Stinson wrote last week about finding the 2011 collection Stella and Rose being produced under Michael’s Recollections brand as a 12×12 paper pad. On my own trip to Michael’s on Friday, I didn’t find the Stella and Rose pad, but I found something else from My Mind’s Eye:
Since I have a major weakness for 6×6 pads I couldn’t resist bringing some of them home! I settled on these three:
You’ll notice that the collection names (Reunion, Dolled Up, Traveller) are unfamiliar, even though the paper designs are. After I got them home, I was able to research the papers and put original collection names to at least some of them.
Reunion is made up mostly of the “Gertie” and “Mabel” parts of the Stella and Rose collection that was released at CHA Winter 2011. The Dolled Up pad is made up of more recent collections – it’s mostly made up of the CHA Winter 2012 releases “On The Bright Side” and “Miss Caroline.
Most of the rest of the pads at the store look like they are probably made up of the Lost & Found and Follow Your Heart collections.
I was unable to identify the papers in the Traveller pad, though. I’m hoping that my readers can help identify them? I’m really curious as to what collection they are originally from.
Licensing or repackaging old collections is a good way for companies to cash in on their library of old designs. It looks like My Mind’s Eye has found a really productive partnership to do this with Michael’s Stores.
