Flower frogs, popular among crafters for photographing and displaying projects, are now available from Melissa Frances. These reproduction pieces are lighter weight than those found in antique shops and have been designed with more space between the prongs so they won’t crumple paper projects. They will retail for $4 to $12, depending on the size.

This week I’ve got some designer news, some hot products, and some new calls to bring to you….and of course, as always, some great links.
The Gaylord Opryland convention center in Nashville, TN, which will host a CK Convention on Aug. 24th-25th, was the site of a large mechanical explosion on Tuesday that evacuated the hotel for several hours. The explosion did an estimated $750,000 in damage, but Gaylord officials told the Tennessean that the damage was limited to a relatively small 4,000 square foot area and the damage should be repaired by June 30th. Officials also told the Tennessean that they did not expect the damage to interfere with events at the property.
Fans of Hambly will be happy to hear that Allison Kreft isn’t going away…Echo Park announced this week that it will be releasing a collection she designed, called Everyday Eclectic!
School is out for summer! (Well, for a week until summer school begins…) To celebrate, this week in Noteworthy I’m bringing you some summer vacation scrapbooking on the go tips, as well as a few new product announcements, and a few pieces of big news from manufacturers.
The first piece of news falls in the category of silver linings. We learned awhile ago that Hambly is closing down – but before they do, they are having a warehouse sale on June 11th-13th (Monday-Wednesday next week). Sales will not be made online, but only in person at their Santa Clara, CA warehouse. If you are a Hambly fan in the Santa Clara area, this is your chance to stock up before the products disappear for good!
