The irony of me picking new crafty stuff just as I clean out my old crafty stuff does not escape me.
But yet again I am drawn to manufacturer blogs like a moth to flame.
Here are my personal MUST BUY picks for this term:
|1. Crafter's Workshop stencils by Ronda Palazzari. |
Dina Wakely's Eyechart and Julie Balzer's leaf stencils are all coming home as well.
|2. We R Memory Keeper baseball size card punch.|
I was JUST wishing I had a 3x4 punch for easy Project Life cards in prints I choose.
|3. Cosmo Cricket's Summer Love paper- awesome graphic prints!|
|4. Prima paper clips- I pretty much want all styles available.|
|5. Studio Calico confetti size shapes veneer. LOVE!!|
|6. Krylon glitter sprays and this lil 3 oz guy in red, yellow and silver.|
|7. Wow! Glitter embossing powder 3 packs|
|8. Jenni Bowlin feather chipboard and mini book clear stamps|
|9. Webster's Pages "Sweet Notes" overlays by Allison Kreft|
|10. Anything with diagonal stripes in red or black/white.|
Some of my favorite brands have complete fallen off the design map this season.
Perhaps it's a sign of the times, not a single company seems to be taking any risks right now.
It's all muted colors and motifs from past seasons- lots of cameras, banners, doilies, chevrons and circles.
Where did all the stars go?
And when did speech bubbles become so popular?
I like them but SHEESH! There's only so many I can put on a layout!
What's with the anchors? Unless you have a yatch or are on a cruise vacation those are random!
Ok time to dish- What are your favorites?
Lemme know! CHA hasn't even started so I know there are other fabulous products out there waiting to be discovered.
