Shhhh…. Here’s Your Fall Catalog Sneak Preview!!!

 

Well folks, your Fall 2015 Paper Wishes catalogs are in the mail, and this Saturday you’ll be able to see all the amazing new papers, stamps, cutting dies and so much more at PaperWishes.com! Now, I arguably have one of the best jobs here at Paper Wishes because I get to see all the new products and projects before they are even released. And after proofing this catalog, I already have my own personal wishlist that just keeps growing… (but that’s okay, it’s work-related)!

So, I thought you all might enjoy a little “early access” to some of the awesome craft supplies you’ll discover in your Fall 2015 Paper Wishes catalog!

 

Letterpress Scrapbooking Collection (page 9)

The Letterpress Scrapbooking Collection from Hot Off The Press features coordinating papers, die-cuts, paper tole & ribbons in gorgeous autumn colors. In fact, we loved these Letterpress papers so much that a large-scale version now graces the walls of our conference room! Each panel is 12″x12″ and this really lets you see all the layers of artwork in these papers.

Take a closer look—each letter features its own special layers of text and swirls… just incredible!

Also look for our three other new scrapbooking collections: Wildflowers, Serenity and Winter’s Garden! Our graphic designers really outdid themselves on all of these collections, and for once, I honestly can’t pick a favorite!

 

NEW PRODUCT! Half & Half: Snowflakes Cutting Die & Stamp Set (back cover)

Half & Half: Snowflakes Cutting Die & Stamp Set from Hot Off The Press features coordinating stamps and cutting dies packaged together for perfect results. You’ll get two cutting dies, 12 matching stamps including accent and greeting stamps! Perfect for mixing, matching and layering! Our design team has found they prefer to die cut the shapes first, and then stamp with the matching design. Also look for Half & Half: Stockings Cutting Die & Stamp Set—the Christmas stocking designs are incredibly adorable (I cannot overstate this!!) and this was one of the first new items to show up on my wishlist!

 

Christmas Inside/Out Die-Cut Cards (page 2)

You might be familiar with Hot Off The Press’ “Everyday” Inside/Out Die-Cut Cards—Flower, Butterfly and Label. And now, we are SO excited to bring you three new designs just for the holidays—Inside/Out Snowflake, Poinsettia and Ornament die-cut cards! Each pack contains 4 cards, 4 envelopes, a project idea and lots of coordinating die-cuts to decorate and layer however you like! And just to make these cards even more fun, there’s also a Christmas Collection stamp set with designs to fit all of the Christmas Inside/Out Cards!

 

Too Cute To Spook Dazzles™ (page 73)

These adorable Dazzles™ are a fun choice for fall and Halloween cards, goodie bag embellishments, party invitations and more! I can’t wait to add these Dazzles™ to my Halloween scrapbook pages this year! And if Christmas is more your thing, then get excited because there’s all kinds of new Christmas Dazzles™ in the Fall Paper Wishes®!

Overall, you’re going to find a great mix of fall, winter and holiday craft supplies, and as I said before, this is a just a tiny, tiny glimpse of what’s new! There are more new stamps, cutting dies, templates, embossing folders and much, much more! You’ll also be able to view over 100 new project ideas all here at Paper Wishes.com on Saturday (that means on Friday for VIPs)! See you then!

All the projects featured from the last week – all came from our Weekly Webisode over the years.   Soooo much inspiration and not just for the holidays!

In the theme of Gift Giving – Let’s see the goodies I found today!

Today’s projects come from Bangle BraceletsClick here to watch

Aired: October 19, 2011

When I first saw these bangles – I was amazed with the work that our designers put into them. They used crystal stickers, smooch inks, metallic inks, embossing inks, Dazzles™, stamps, glaze and the list goes on and on.

You can put just about anything on these bangles and personalized them as well. A great little gift – to make for someone or even yourself! Come check out a couple of my favorites but, I found it very hard to pick just two!

Welcome to Day 7 of 12 Days of Christmas with Paper Wishes®!

Thanks for joining me today, as I find “hidden” treasures from our Paper Wishes Webisodes.  Just in case you missed last week’s posts, here’s a link to our Weekly Webisode & Gallery Archive – click here.  All the projects featured from last week all came from our Weekly Webisode over the years.   Soooo much inspiration ~ not just for the holidays.

This week is all about last minute gift giving. I love it when I receive hand-made gifts. Albums, cards, framed pictures…all types of goodies.  I’d like to share some ideas for Gift Giving this week – as we get closer and closer to Christmas!

Making jewelry isn’t something that I normally like to create. However this webisode gave me some great tips & inspiration to create some pieces as a gift set.  I love the colors of the patina and the images on the metal embossing plates are wonderful!

Another option is this beautiful Reversible Butterfly necklace. One side is embossed other side is debossed. Very Cool! And if you watch the webisode, Ann goes over some pretty cool techniques.
