The strong graphic prints in LilyBee's Christmas Cheer are great for Cardmaking, I can't look at a Christmas Paper and not think about cards. It would be wonderful for Scrapbooking too. I really like this line!
LIke this a lot, I have seen it in the retailer catalog and I like it. I will get all of her lines this time. I'm about to update the CHA Pages for Links, What we are Buying and When it's Coming. So there will be tons coming in the next few days. I can't believe CHA is next Monday. I have a Class with Tim Holtz at 8 AM and another with Hero Arts later in the day, the Innovations Showcase and a Party with Moxxie. I also make time to see the Designer Showcase too. Then 3 Days of buying. Some of which I have done already - but a ton of which I will do right at the show. I will take pictures and video. Tammy - my wonderful assistant buyer will be with me and she has her camera too. Oh My! we will be busy!
LilyBee Papers have always been a favorite of mine. I love the patterns and the design of this collection. I love the cards, the entire collection says fall to me. I can think of Apple Orchards and Leaves and I can see the images popping out on this paper. That's what I like to think about for a fall collection.
I do love these lines from Lily Bee for Summer CHA 2012. Autumn Spice is just that and it's wonderful. Can't wait until I can show you more next week when they do the full sneak. Just so you know, we are still waiting on sneaks from Cosmo Cricket, Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, Tim Holtz, Studio Calico, Echo Park has more, Carta Bella has more, Fancy Pants, Jenni Bowlin, Jillibean Soup, Smash, October Afternoon, Petaloo, Simple Stories, Webster's Pages and who ever else is out that we buy. Next week will be a lot of updating.
I still love Lily Bee, love the graphic prints and colors. I will be buying them this year, but I would like to see a lot more than a teaser. I hope the companies get this, we need 3 weeks to do our sneaks, not 2 and that's all they are giving us and there is a holiday in there. So expect a rush coming right up to CHA. Both CHA's are over a week earlier this year which is likely the cause of the wait on these sneaks.
