3 New Reasons to Love Paper. Spring Collections Are In.
I admit, I have a thing for paper. To me, paper represents beauty, opportunity, and a plain old good time. You can write on it, read it, draw on it, look at it, wrap it, bind it, put guinea pigs on it, burn it, recycle it, flush it, decorate it and on and on. Paper is really a magnificent thing.
So it's with great pleasure that I have 3 new paper collections to offer. I'm just crazy about Chiyogami and Italian papers. I love the ornate and delicate nature of the designs. The pleasing color palettes, the whimsical and sometimes seasonal nature of the patterns carries me through to the next season.
The first collection is the Bunny Rabbits Hippity Hop Collection, named, of course, for the cute little Bunny Rabbits that frolic across the papers. With their pastel pink and blue backgrounds, these would make adorable pendants or a really cute magnet set.
Next is the Spring Fields Collection. I'm a sucker for dainty flowers. I love the color combination of these 3 papers together, too. For an example of a tin set using this paper collection, I have one listed here.
Lastly, the Tuscany Collection which is another beautiful addition to the Italian papers I already carry. 2 brand new papers are included in this 3-pack paper collection. One pattern has the littlest, most beautiful butterflies and a fabulously ornate bird. The second paper has a grape and vineyard theme with royal purples. There's a fair amount of blue included in these papers, and all have rich and vivid colors.
