Studio Calico is finially sneaking, I love this collection. Deep rich color and great images. The the embellishments and the sprays on this line too. I like that it has a school theme, but also goes fall. I can't say I've seen many papers that have the color fans like the first paper here either.
We do not sneak until they sneak. I have seen the collections, they are very very nice, you will see more next week when they sneak. Just letting you know they are still out there with collections, along with Crate Paper and all of the other companies that American Crafts has taken under their wing!
American Crafts called me last Friday and asked me to take down the Crate Paper Sneaks, they will be back up this week. Even though they said in the email to Blog about it - they didn't mean it, so I did what they asked, Hey Day on the other hand I can show you now!
Now on to the good stuff. American Crafts took Crate Paper and Studio Calico into thier brands about 6 months ago. I was given the opportunity to order this stuff super super early - and I took that opportunity. I ordered long before a lot of other companies when my rep came to town. So we should get this early, along with Crate Paper and the other American Crafts companies, we order all of their mid-season releases. Pebbles and American Crafts too!
Crate Paper and Studio Calico were bought out by American Crafts. That's a good thing, since we wanted them to stay around for a long time and American Crafts has that ability. Studio Calico's owners wanted more time to work on their wonderful kit club, Crate Paper needed to be part of something bigger - so it works out great. That said, they had nice booths, so I wanted to show them to you!
