Spring 2016: Card Kits, Planners, Watercolors & Spring Cleaning!

 

Here at Paper Wishes, spring has officially sprung! Just as we’re seeing signs of new life outside, we have lots of fresh new items that debuted in the Early Spring 2016 Paper Wishes® Special Edition catalog (all available now at PaperWishes.com)! This catalog has a lot to get excited about, so here’s a peek at a few of my favorites (love my job)! 🙂

 

Rose Garden Foiled Die-Cut Topper Kit 

First I want to share something that’s both new and spectacularly gorgeous—the Rose Garden Foiled Topper Kit! Gail demo-ed this kit during her appearance on HSN and it completely sold out. If you didn’t get yours, here’s your chance! Supplies are limited.

A luxurious, foiled card topper kit in vivid fuchsia, lime and teal florals.

  • 160 stunning, gold-foiled die-cuts
  • 16  patterned papers (8.5″x11″)
  • 24 blank white cards (5″x6.5″) and 24 envelopes
  • idea sheet

Here are a couple of project ideas, although clearly you’ll have TONS of beautiful options to play with!

Some of the toppers are so large that they make a perfect shaped card! Designed by Debbie Samples.

You can layer the toppers, and yes—that beautiful, lacy paper is part of the set! Designed by Gail Booth.

 

Carpe Diem Planner Collection

Another favorite (especially among Paper Wishes employees) is the Carpe Diem Planner Collection from Simple Stories! Apparently, we all needed to get organized—but doing so also had to be fun and creative. The planner already comes with everything you need. Then, just choose coordinating Carpe Diem planner extras to customize it—take a look!

Here are all the fun extras—with even more coming in April 2016!

And one of our graphic designers, Kristen, had a fabulous idea—use the weekly pages as a journal! You can still plan ahead on the monthly calendar AND have a place to jot down those precious daily moments that we forget all too easily! Genius!

 

Stackable Caddy Organizer (Deflecto)

Embracing some much-needed organization, I also picked up one of these!

caddyMoms and grandmas, do you see this!? This caddy features three compartments with snapping lids to keep little fingers out! You can even turn the containers so the lid latches on the inside (close to the handle) keeping your “helpers” away from anything sharp, sticky or permanent. The lids are removable if this isn’t a concern for you, but you probably have a good sense of where I’m coming from… 😉 Another cool feature? You can stack multiple caddies and lock them together. This is a storage solution that I LOVE and it’s perfect to hold all your “basics.”

 

NEW Watercolor Basics

Another fun trend we are seeing lots of is watercolor. Personally, I love to paint. A simple watercolor background is an easy way to give your cards, pages and projects an extra layer of mixed-media-loveliness, so I’m very excited that PaperWishes.com now carries everything you’ll need to get started!

Watercolor Coloring Book

Here’s one of the pages from this incredible watercolor coloring book. I haven’t tried this book out yet, but it’s definitely on my wish list (along with this one).

 

So there you have just a few of my Spring Special Edition favorites! Post any comments or questions you might have below, and I’d love to hear—what were some of your favorites?

See you soon!

Steampunk Collection + Masculine Card Ideas!!!

 

Sometimes “pretty” comes easy, while “manly” remains a little more elusive. How do you make a pretty (or rather, manly) card for a man? Paper Wishes designers to the rescue! Below are some of my favorite masculine looks our incredible design team created using Hot Off The Press’ new Steampunk Collection!

Susan created the card below using Steampunk Foiled Fancies™ which are gold-foiled, deeply embossed die-cuts just waiting for your creative touch! Ink them, sand them, or add paint, markers and more for incredible effects. Susan colored her Foiled Fancies™ hot air balloon, gears and butterfly with Spectrum Noir™ markers. She then stamped black designs from the Fancy Patterns stamp set using Black StazOn® ink. Click on the project for details.

Click here for Susan's instructions!

Here’s a gorgeous card from Teresa who has embellished a Steampunk Foil Paper Tole “winged clock” with tiny, self-adhesive copper “nailheads.” She’s also used the Steampunk stamp set and Gold StazOn® ink for her card greeting! I just love this look, especially with that brown twill ribbon!

Click here for Teresa's instructions!

Click here for Teresa’s instructions!

 

On this version, Gail customized her Foiled Fancies™ by inking them with black StazOn®, and applying rubbing alcohol over the top for a pewter look. She then combined her Foiled Fancies™ with Steampunk Scrapbooking Dazzles™. She backed her Dazzles™ heart and gears with Mocha Suede specialty paper, then layered her pieces together with foam tape. Wonderful dimension!!

Click for Gail's instructions!

Click for Gail’s instructions!

 

Steampunk is the perfect collection for creating masculine cards, with deep brown and golden tones, teal accents and “manly” motifs like gears, top hats and more. You’ll be able to make the perfect birthday card for your husband, son, father, brother or any other special guy!

 

I hope you have a love-filled Valentine’s Day! <3

Brighten Up With Our “Colorist” Collection!

The February sun is shining down on Hot Off The Press today, and I could’ve swore I felt the tiniest twitch of spring fever. Not full-blown-can’t-focus-must-clean-my-house spring fever. Just a pinch. Enough to remind me that, eventually, winter will give way to springtime.

To shake off some of the winter grays, I’m sharing our new Colorist Collection with you! The 12″x12″ paper pack features black and white outline artwork on one side, with vibrantly colored, dotted patterns on the other! These are some of the most versatile papers for papercrafters EVER! The black and white motif, contrasted against the bold colors and simple polka dots allows these papers to really travel through the seasons.

Below, Gail’s adorable easel card was covered with Colorist papers, and her framed robin focal (cut from the Feathered Friends Colorist book) was colored in with Spectrum Noir™ markers. I love how she used a ribbon bow to prop up her card front! And the floral background paper inside is so striking when left black and white! Click on the card for Gail’s supplies and instructions.

Susan’s card below features Colorist Scrapbooking Dazzles™ stickers, and I love the look of this card! For her greeting, she simply placed the Dazzles™ “Celebrate…” sticker onto matted Colorist papers. The flowers were made by placing Dazzles™ flower stickers onto Double-Sided Adhesive. She covered the adhesive with Crystal Micro Glitter, and backed the flowers with Colorist papers for beautiful sparkle and shine! Click her card for more details.

Here’s a scrapbook page that LeNae created using Colorist papers, Colorist Scrapbooking Dazzles™ and Colorist ribbon. You can color these papers any way you like. Use markers, colored pencils, chalk, ink, anything… and make it your own! 🙂

This last card easily makes my “Top 10” list—take a look! LeNae has covered a Center Step card with Colorist papers that she colored in with ArtGrip Watercolor Pencils. The focal is Florals for Colorists Paper Tole which is a quick and easy way to get a gorgeous, playful look like this! You can click on the card for supplies and instructions.

NEW Feathered Friends & Zen Dragonflies Colorist Books!

Hello!

Today I wanted to show you the two latest Colorist books from Hot Off The Press! These cute little coloring books feature gorgeous designs, each printed on its own cardstock page and sized perfectly for a card. Yes, we know coloring is therapeutic, but let’s put our coloring to work for us and use it to create a special focal, whether for a card, page or even a gift bag!

Last week Paulette and Gail were at the CHA MEGA Show in Southern California, and alas—it was discovered we needed samples for the new books. So Gail and our awesome buyer, Kayla, found themselves in the hotel room coloring. You’ll get to see Kayla’s card on an upcoming webisode!

Our two new books are Zen Dragonflies for Colorists and Feathered Friends for Colorists, and the images are some of my favorites so far!

Here’s a sample from Zen Dragonflies that LeNae colored with Spectrum Noir™ pens, and accented with Stickles™ glitter glue! This piece would look amazing on a card. Just stamp a greeting onto one of the labels or tags that come with the book, add a bow if you like, and you’re done!

Here’s another design from Zen Dragonflies. Debbie colored her page with Spectrum Noir™ Blendable Pencils, matted it on Purple Circles Holographic paper and glued it to a gift bag—so clever! I zoomed in so you’ll be able to see the design, as well as the little gift tag hanging from the handle. Each Colorist book includes 2 sheets of matching labels and tags to use however you like (our graphic designers think of everything)!

Feathered Friends is our other must-have Colorist book! Gail did an incredible job coloring this sample, and she used something that most of us already have—ink pads! She used Art Daubers to color the frame (you “wear” the daubers on your fingers—cool!) Then she tapped the inks onto a craft sheet or acrylic block, and actually used a paintbrush to “paint” her owl. Great ideas, Gail!

And now for the coup-de-grace, Gail’s stunning Owl Center Step Card! The simplicity of the card highlights the awesome job she did coloring her owl. She used Spectrum Noir™ pens to color her owl, and if you haven’t tried these markers yet, put them on your wish list!! There are TONS of colors available, and they are grouped into color families for seamless blending. Love them!

I hope these projects will inspire you to take your coloring out of the book, and onto a card! Make your coloring count! 😀

 

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Sunshine & Raindrops Dazzles™ Stickers + Project Ideas!

Happy Tuesday, Paper Wishers!

It looks like Paulette, Gail and the others are having an amazing time at the CHA 2016 MEGA Show in Anaheim, CA. They will be back home tomorrow, and I can’t wait to see what they’ve discovered!

Today I’m going to show you my favorite new Dazzles™ stickers—Sunshine & Raindrops! They feature an adorable little girl under an umbrella, along with clouds, raindrops, sunshine and a rainbow. These super cute stickers have a trendy weather theme that works for all four seasons! I was so excited when these Dazzles™ came out that I pretty much had to take them home and make a card. Immediately. So here’s the card I made, plus a couple of really stunning cards from the true professionals—our lovely Design Team!

Merry Christmas from Paper Wishes!!!

 

Merry Christmas Eve!

 

Traditionally, Christmas is when people slow down to take some time for themselves, to rejuvenate and enjoy their families. But here at Paper Wishes, things have barely slowed. In fact, they haven’t slowed. With a new catalog coming soon, preparations to be made for the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show in January, and some other BIG plans in the works that I probably can’t reveal yet, everyone here (and most of all, Paulette) is going 110%.

For us, sharing the love of papercrafting, and striving to continually offer new, different and wonderful products is what drives us. It’s the passion that lies at the core of what we do every day. But despite the work, here is just some of the Christmas fun that we’ve had over the past month!

We have squeezed some great times into a very busy month! I’d like to thank Paulette, and all my co-workers who have helped bring Christmas magic to Paper Wishes this year. And most importantly, I want to thank all of our Paper Wishers for the incredible creativity and kindness you’ve shown! You truly are the very best part of Paper Wishes!

 

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
