CHA Winter 2012 | Fancy Pants Filter Paper Embellishments (and collections)

Fancy Pants released four new lines at CHA Winter, but my favorite thing was an accessory item included in each colorway.

Filter Paper Embellishments are sort of a cross between a coffee filter, tissue paper, and a printed doily. They can be folded into yoyos, stitched, crinkled, cut, or used as is. There are so many creative and colorful possibilities!

Valentine’s Day Scrapbooking Paper Lines Roundup

The scrapbooking world is emerging from a barrage of Christmas projects just in time to start crafting for the next holiday: Valentine’s Day! Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about what paper line(s) you’re going to use for your Valentine’s Day cards, since the big day of all things pink, hearted, and mushy is a mere six weeks away! Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to shop for your supplies and make your cards without feeling rushed.

After my roundup of Christmas scrapbooking lines went live here on Scrapbook Update, I received many, many requests to do a similar article for each holiday. I can’t promise that I’ll do one for every special day on the calendar (there just aren’t that many paper lines for Talk Like a Pirate Day, you know?), but when there are enough themed lines to warrant a roundup, I’ll be sure to post them to keep you all informed!

As with the Christmas roundup, I’m listing all the Valentine’s Day paper lines that were released either at or after CHA Summer 2011 and have scoured the vastness of the interwebs to bring you representative photos of each. They’re listed in alphabetical order, and, since there aren’t nearly so many of them as there were Christmas lines, I’ll also give a little commentary on each.

Ready to start seeing pink? Let’s get going!

Basic GreyKissing Booth

Kissing Booth is a mix of basic patterns (I spy doilies and herringbone in the mix) and sweet watercolor images. This line uses brown as a contrast color and is one of the few cream-based collections in the roundup.

Noteworthy | 11.4.2011

I have an announcement to make – this has been a week full of news and announcements! Here’s all the latest I’ve found – this week’s noteworthy items:


Ranger has announced that they have a new signature designer: Dyan Reaveley.

Dyan and Ranger are developing a signature line of craft products called Dylusions, and she is already an integral part of the Ranger Designer Team. Dyan has been teaching and demoing with Ranger for several years and is known for her creativity with layering color, images and thought-provoking collages.

Dyan’s Dylusions stamp line, which is manufactured by Stampers Anonymous and distributed by Ranger, debuted at the Summer CHA show and is now available. There are no specific product details released yet about her new signature line, but the new “Dylusions” craft product line will debut with Ranger at the Winter CHA show in January.

Pink Paislee announced that beginning November 14th they will begin exclusively selling digital product through JessicaSprague.com.

 We have been interested in joining the digital scrapbook market ever since we opened our doors in 2008. Almost every week we hear from customers who are interested in purchasing our patterns in a digital format, so being able to make this announcement public is very exciting for us!

Customers can expect to find paper packs, element packs, sticker packs, digital brushes, quickpages and more in the coming months. Some will be new and exclusive digital products while others will be developed from previous paper collections. Continue Reading →
