Wavesearcher by Fancy Pants

 This new collection by Fancy Pants is perfect for a sunny reminds me that it's almost summer, and it's certainly 5 o'clock somewhere!  WAVESEARCHER has a nice, warm color pattern and beautiful summer graphics including wave patterns, tikis, palm trees and the summer sun.

Stickers include border stickers, parentheses, corners, tikis, stars, arrows, tabs and more.

These chipboard pieces will look great and add dimension to any layout or project.  (The tiki guys are very *cool*!)

For those who like the whole collection...we have it packaged in a easy to-go collection kit.

So...let's talk for a second about the Fancy Pants Brag Books.  The Brag Books are sorta/kinda like the SMASH Books, but without all the whimsical graphics.  And, they are a whole lot bigger (way more BANG for your buck).  Let's start with the basics.

Brag Books are sort of like a traveling scrapbook.  They were designed with the busiest of scrapbookers in mind.  With a customizable cover, 50 scrapbook/journaling pages, 15 2-slot photo protectors (holds up to 60 4x6 photos) and 15 pocket folder pages for storing your favorite can't go wrong!  Brag Books are sold in three different color "spine" options (they are really just edges, like the brown you see below, since the spine is a spiral)...your choice of brown, red/maroon or black.  

Now...let's add a twist...with the WAVESEARCHER and SUMMER SOUL (not shown here, but check back soon!) collections, there is a Brag Book Combo Kit.  Look above for an means that in addition to the Brag Book, you also get 1 Tab/Element Sticker, 1 Alphabet Sticker, 1 Front Cover, 1 Back Cover, 10 Designer Cards and 12 Brag Book papers for a jump start in designing with the Brag Book.  

What a perfect way to document your ENTIRE summer!

New SMASH Books!

Can you say SUPERSIZE?!?!?  Well...the new SMASH books are bigger and better than ever before with two new BIGGER books!  Available colors: orange and purple.

Tuck it in, in a big way. The larger sized Pocket SMASH folio has enough bound-in folders, pockets and envelopes to hold the really major moments that happen every day. These aren't just your ordinary journal pages, they're covered with images, designs and captions to make design a snap. Includes 42 pages, plus 6 special pocket pages and a pen and glue stick. Book size is 11" wide x 13.5" high.

 Now...back to the regular size BUT...this time with a THEME!  

First up...WEDDING.  How cool is this for a bride to be?!?!?  Makes a GREAT engagement or wedding shower gift :)  Also a great gift for the mother of the bride.

Save the date for the totally swoon-worthy SMASH Wedding Style folio. You just created the perfect event, now you can sit back, relax and stick in those happy mementos—leaving you plenty of time to be all lovey-dovey. These aren't just your ordinary journal pages, they're covered with images, designs and captions to make design a snap. Includes 40 pages and a SMASH pen and glue stick. Book size is 7.75" wide x 10.25" high.

Next...BABY.  The graphics inside are absolutely ADORABLE...we've heard lots of ooohs and aaahs and even a few giggles and "how true" comments from people looking through them.  One of these baby SMASH books would be an absolutely great gift for any mom or mom-to-be.  Afterall, the glue pen makes it so easy to just glue stuff down and write a few notes - even a busy mom has time for that!

Capture the everyday “aww” and “uh-oh” moments in a flash, because, you know, you have to keep up with a little person now. Sweet, funny and gender neutral, it also makes a fun baby shower gift. These aren't just your ordinary journal pages, they're covered with images, designs and captions to make design a snap. Includes 40 pages and a SMASH pen and glue stick. Book size is 7.75" wide x 10.25" high.

Swoon is here!

Little Yellow Bicycle's newest collection...SWOON...has arrived!  As it says below, it's a very sophisticated collection of whites, grays and blacks.  Simply beautiful and timeless.

It's a little hard to see how exactly how pretty the papers really are on this blog, but here's a sample of some of them...

(See the sheet music below?  Again...a little hard to see...)
 In addition to the beautiful flowers shown in the layout at the top of this post, these pins are part of the SWOON embellishments (and they are awesome!).  Pins usually sell out fast, so if you're interested...come in soon!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Trendy Tape

At SCRAP-A-GANZA this past weekend, we debuted the new TRENDY TAPES and they were HOT, HOT, HOT!  Tapes are not really a new item, but they have taken the papercrafting world by storm recently with all new patterns and colors.  You can use them for just about anything...from the obvious (taping something down to your page) to the not so obvious (making adorable flags out of toothpicks).  Either way, you get a whole lotta bang for your buck so I imagine we'll start seeing a roll or two in everyone's stash sooner or later :)

Here's the brand new collection of Trendy Tape by Queen and Co. - we may be out of stock already on some of the items.  If we don't have what you need, just let us know as we definitely plan to reorder! 

Check out this sample layout...the blue borders with polka dots...TRENDY TAPE!  The toothpick flags...TRENDY TAPE!  The chevron accents on the right side...TRENDY TAPE!

Here's an up close look at the toothpick flags...easy peasy.  And super cute!  They would also work great on cards.

And, speaking of cards...look at this cute birthday card using TRENDY TAPE as candles.  

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they are sorta like Doritos.  Betcha can't buy just one :)

New Patterned Paper by Bazzill

Introducing two new collections by...wait for it...BAZZILL!  That's right...the company that we all know and love for their CARDSTOCK is finally breaking through in the patterned paper market.  

Antique Papers is a great collection of "aged" papers.  Some of us...and when I say "us", I admit that I have torn a page or two (or sixty) out of an old book or hymnal and used it in my scrapbook or on an altered the look of those antique papers splashed across a page.  Now, Bazzill gives it to us on a 12"x12" square of paper so that we don't have to experience that guilt!  Plus, the paper is thin, so it works great when making flowers, ruffles and rosettes! 

Next is Wayfarer, designed by Janet Hopkins.  This vintage inspired travel line has great designs  - the map pages are a absolute must see.  Janet also incorporates a bit of a collage style to the's a beautiful line!

And, last but not least, the Bazzill cardstock section has been restocked :)

Have a great day and enjoy this warm weather!
