Today we received two HUGE boxes from My Little Yellow Bicycle, with the Frightful collection. It is absolutely the most adorable Halloween collection I have ever seen! WAIT 'til you see this one!!! As a matter of fact, I'm going to call the company tomorrow to see if I can get more of it in, because I know it's going to sell out VERY quickly. There is a gorgeous FLOCKED SPIDER AND WEB paper that is really cool. There are glittered papers and diecut papers. One of the diecut papers has spiderwebs all along the edges, as a border all around. Another one has diecut bats as a border all around the page. There's another diecut page that is a collage of Halloween sayings and words, with little bats and spiders and webs mixed in between them all. The skull image they use throughout the collection is REALLY WICKED!!! It has a cutout flourish in the top of the right side of the skull. I also have matching acrylic cling stamps for this collection, and it does include the skull! If you want to see the collection, go to www.MyLYB.com and click on the Collections, then click on the Frightful icon. I have pretty much the entire collection, except for a couple things that were already backordered! Both chipboard alphabet sets, the transparency frames and images, the charms, the glittered stickers (cardstock and chipboard)... I am using this for the Layout of the Month for those of you who belong to the Club. The Workshop for the LOM is THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th. Please check the website calendar for more info.
NEW from KI Memories, SHEER DELIGHTS Small Flowers 1 and Small Flowers 2. These are like nothing you've ever seen before in scrapbooking! They are acid-free and archival safe, and are fairly transparent diecut sheets that are made of a material that is like very, very thin plastic. It is very versatile and can be used for papercrafting as well as home decor. You've probably already seen the ads for it in the current scrapbooking and papercrafting magazines. The ad I've seen uses it as a cone-shaped holder for a bunch of flowers. It is something you just have to see. To see it online, go to www.KIMemories.com and click on the Sheer Delights collection. But I'm warning you, the images online do not really do it justice at all. It's something you have to see in person in order to really appreciate it.
Okay, we also got in a HUGE shipment of new Sugartree papers. For those of you not familiar with this company, they are the ones who do the excellent themed papers. We got in new travel papers with airplanes on them, pandas, black bears (LA has black bears!), an absolutely fantastic chicken and eggs page, mountains, beach scenes, rubber ducky in bathtub with matching tile paper. So much, I really can't list it all. The invoice was two complete pages.
Okay, I'm a little punch drunk. It's been a long, busy day and tomorrow will be the same.
Until next time, happy scrapping!
