Cards | Happy Mother’s Day

Today, we’re making a big announcement for National Scrapbook Day!

Please welcome to Scrapbook Update the Card Annex design team! The Card Annex team was founded late last year as part of another Nally Studios property, and is now taking up permanent residence at Scrapbook Update to strengthen our creative offerings here.

Our ten card designers will be bringing you content several times per week to highlight products and teach techniques. Today, you’ll be getting their first three posts for Scrapbook Update, but if you would like to see more, you can visit the Card Annex archives on our site.

First up today, Scrapbook Update’s Card Annex team designer Corri Garza is bringing us a card featuring the products of designer Lori Whitlock, but from two different companies!

The beautiful pink papers on this card are from the Valentine’s Day collection called “Love Story” that Lori designed for Echo Park Paper Company. Who said that you have to put away your seasonal products when the season is over? Lori’s beautiful feminine pink designs in “Love Story” are perfect for Mother’s Day, and would also do well for other occasions like birthdays and baby girls.

CHA Summer 2012 | Scrapbook Update Top Ten Hot Picks!

Some shows there’s so much buzz about specific products that the Hot Picks practically write themselves. This show, however, the standouts were more difficult to pick out from a solid field of offerings at a quiet show in Chicago. But after much consideration, and some difficult decisions about some eliminations to get the list to only ten, here’s the Scrapbook Update Top Ten Hot Picks List for CHA Summer 2012:

Martha Stewart Adhesive Silk Screens by Plaid

I knew as soon as I saw (and tried) this product that it would be a hot pick! These silkscreens are an extension of Plaid’s fabulous line of Martha Stewart acrylic paints and adhesive stencils – and the silkscreens really impress.

First Look | Carta Bella Paper

Editor’s Note: Carta Bella Paper, sister company of Echo Park Paper, is going to be one of the most anticipated new companies showing product at CHA Summer 2012  in Chicago in a few weeks. Their debut product line has just hit stores. I asked guest writer Tami Morrison to take a look and preview the line for our readers — Nancy

Carta Bella Paper debuted recently accompanied by a lot of buzz in the scrapbook world. With the aesthetic of Creative Director Carina Gardner and the marketing mojo of Echo Park, this company is positioned to make a big splash on the scrapbooking scene.

I recently spent some time playing with their debut line, “Beautiful Moments“. The substantial, textured papers feature a vintage pink, gold, red, and black palette that inspire spring and summer layouts, and would also work great with Valentine’s Day photos.
