American Crafts Acquires Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp Brands

American Crafts announced today that the company has purchased Pink Paislee, including its Heidi Swapp brand. The deal is effective immediately.

Pink Paislee, founded in January 2008 by Rebecca & Barry Cross, is based in Kansas City, Missouri. The company is known for its detailed feminine designs and licensing collaborations with high profile designers, most recently the Heidi Swapp signature line.

Pink Paislee Snow VillageRebecca Cross, who serves as Pink Paislee’s CEO and Creative Director, and husband Barry Cross, who is the company’s CFO, will be relocating from Missouri to run Pink Paislee’s operations out of American Crafts’ Orem, Utah headquarters. The move will put them in the same location with Heidi Swapp to continue their collaboration more closely on her line of products. As Heidi noted in the announcement on her blog, “we are excited about getting so much done once we live in the same city!” Continue Reading →

Layout | We Are Family

Now that my new creative space is finally completed and functional (photos coming soon), I’m able to create much more again! The first thing I whipped out in my new space was this layout, inspired by both the precious photo and the fabulous new Park Bench collection from Fancy Pants Designs. Also, I wanted to take my new Silhouette Portrait out for another run. I love my new toy!

CHA Winter 2013 | Heidi Swapp

Heidi Swapp’s section of the Pink Paislee booth at CHA Winter 2013 was buzzing with activity and popping with color.

Color Pop is Heidi’s latest addition to her Color Magic resist papers and Memory File products. Brightly hued sections that resist inks alternate with white sections that absorb inks, for a whole new level of vibrance and color combination possibilities.

Noteworthy | 6.29.2012

This week, there’s a bunch of noteworthy sales, some great links, and a few CHA-related announcements (of course!)

Nikki Sivils made an announcement this week that will be disappointing to her many fans. Not only is she choosing for her company to not exhibit at CHA Summer 2012 in Chicago, but she has chosen to not design any products for this development cycle. Nikki attributed the decision to stress from several recent family crisises, including her father’s cancer diagnosis, her brother’s long recovery from an accident that left him with serious burns, and her grandmother’s passing away.

I, personally, will miss seeing Nikki (and her husband Dan) and her unique design brand in Chicago. I wish Nikki and her family all the best and look forward to seeing her and her company in Anaheim in January!

Elle’s Studio made a couple of big announcements this week. First, they announced they are exhibiting at their first CHA show, with a booth in Chicago at CHA Summer 2012. They plan to release three lines – everyday, Halloween, and Christmas – along with some new stamps at the show.

Their second announcement was that to make room for the new CHA releases, they are having a Grab Bag and Tag Retirement sale. The grab bags are sold out, but there are still plenty of retiring tags left at a huge discount with the coupon code from the Elle’s Studio blog! Get them while they last, because although the sale lasts until Sunday night, they are going to go fast! Continue Reading →
