Editors’ Picks: Top Products of 2010

Kim JacksonWow—2010 has been a whirlwind of a year! With so many amazing products being brought to market, scrapbooking is definitely better than ever. And without a doubt, this was a year full of fabulous collaborations. We saw designers teaming up with companies new and old, and some familiar faces pairing up within the industry. And the results were spectacular!

Here are five of the very best products from 2010:

Sew Easy
We R Memory Keepers

The Sew Easy stitch piercer made its way into our hearts this autumn, encouraging us to add more than a little stitching to our layouts. With its easy-to-use design and fantastic homespun results, the Sew Easy was a gotta-have-it tool in 2010.


Parisian Anthology
Pink Paislee/House of 3

In 2010, Pink Paislee and House of 3 showed us the best way to add a little savoir faire to our layouts: Parisian Anthology! From its emboss-resist papers and gorgeous monochromatic designs to its silk ruffles and bold bling, scrapbookers fell head over heels for this chic collection of papers and embellishments.


Dear Lizzy
American Crafts

Another dynamic duo that emerged in 2010 was the dream team of Elizabeth Kartchner and American Crafts. With Lizzy’s sweet style and American Crafts’ graphic design know-how at work, how could we not grab all we could of the amazing lines they released this year? From Spring and Christmas to Enchanted, scrapbookers everywhere were . . . enchanted.

Sweet Summertime
Echo Park Paper

Echo Park Paper came out of nowhere this year—bursting onto the scene like a bottle rocket with their first release, Sweet Summertime. Echo Park’s fun, bright colors and whimsical, usable designs made Sweet Summertime a must-have for 2010 summer scrapbooking.

Paper Girl and On Holiday
The Girls’ Paperie

Margie Romney-Aslett’s stunning, feminine designs made The Girls’ Paperie the talk of the town in 2010. Paper Girl and On Holiday were everywhere this year! With their unique blend of vintage style (postage stamps, anyone?) and modern sensibilities (how about those budget-friendly letter packs?), these fabulous lines are sure to be your favorites for years to come.

That sure is a lot of style and innovation in one place! We would love to hear your favorite picks of 2010—were there some on our list that made it on to yours?

Happy scrapbooking!
