Update | 4.28.2014 – Graphic45 Halloween, Pink Paislee digital, New SImple Stories

Here in Florida, spring is over and the summer heat is upon us while the rest of the country enjoys beautiful spring days. This is when you pay us all back for our beautiful winters!

Lots of mid-season releases are rolling in…let’s take a look at a few!

I’m pretty sure that Graphic45 wins the prize for the earliest release of a Halloween collection in 2014. Their new collection “An Eerie Tale” will be shipping to stores in May, featuring traditional black, orange, green and purple with their signature detailed vintage look:

That collection will feature shades of blue, coral and brown with motifs for all different modes of travel, heavily featuring maps and vintage transportation modes.

  • Good Day Sunshine
  • Story of Us
  • Hello Baby
  • Sea to Shining Sea
  • Under the Stars

Starting tomorrow, Tuesday the 29th, Simple Stories will be showing the full reveals of all five new collections on their blog.

Completing their transition to the American Crafts umbrella, Pink Paislee’s digital products are now available via the AC Digitals online store. The announcement was paired with the release of one of their CHA Mega Show 2014 collections, Hello Sunshine, to digital.

    Thanks Nancy! Seeing a Halloween collection in May reminds me that I saw hot cross buns on New Year’s Day last year!

    It’s hot & muggy here in West Palm Beach. So I was excited to see the Graphic 45 release.
