It’s always so fun to unveil new product!
Usually it’s something we worked on nearly a year ago, and having moved on to a billion other projects since then, we’ve long since forgotten about. Getting reacquainted with this particular artwork has been especially enjoyable because Beth & I really enjoyed working with the colors and form on these new Sonnets and Anthology scrapbook collections (being release at CHA this week through Creative Imaginations)! So insert your own soft drum roll, and a mental “Ta-Dah!” as we pull back the curtain just a bit to sneak peak you our CHA releases!
First the SONNETS release: URBAN GYPSY
When I think of “gypsy”, many bohemian images come to mind: embroidered skirts and big hoop earrings…Johhny Depp’s character in one of my all time favorite flicks: Choclat…high school days (the 80s) of listening to Stevie Nick’s sing Gypsy ("lightning strikes maybe once, maybe twice!"). I think of open markets and street music and gypsy caravans. That’s precisely the kind of imagery that inspired this release of double sided papers, epoxy, stickers, rub-ons, and alphabets. Fashion forward banded patterns and bangles play with watercolor textures, paisleys, and medallions in tones of turquoise, lime, purple, orange and pink! Break out your tamborine.
Here are the catalogue pages and some great layouts from Jamie Harper and Suzy Plantaura showcasing this line!
You also just must check out this lovely purse creation that Jamie posted on Two Peas using the Urban Gypsy product!
Next the ANTHOLOGY release: ROXANNE
Another one of Anthology’s new “personaties” emerges with her mix of bold, tropical color and feminine curvaceous-ness. Living in a surf-town, and with Beth being a little surfer-gal herself, this was a marriage of all the things we love: waves of sea, florals and fauna, elegant typography, and fashion color!

I hope these make you feel enlivened and inspired....and happy!
