Latest & Greatest: January/February 2012

Awe… love is in the air. Can you feel it? If not, I invite you to pay me a visit. My office is sparkling with new romantic paper lines. As the new writer of Creating Keepsakes “Latest & Greatest” column (starting with our Jan/Feb 2012 issue), I wanted to bring you a few of my favorite lovey-dovey lines, just in time for a little Valentine’s Day creating. Let’s embark on this bicycle built for two and take a look at what’s hot off the presses in the land of paper amore!

BasicGrey’s Kissing Booth

Pucker up! This beautiful line is just what you need, whether you’re telling your own love story or simply want some beautiful new pinks and reds to add to your stash.

Bazzill Basics Paper’s Love Story

Who wrote the book of love, you ask? Well, this cute book was written by our friends at Bazzill Basics Paper. It’s a whimsical line, just write for making a note for that special someone you’ve been secretly admiring. Or, use it on a layout about your favorite sweet friend. The heart buttons are just the sugar on top you need!

Doodlebug Designs’ Sweet Cakes Collection

Mmmmm…the smell of Sweet Cakes is adrift. Breathe it in and imagine the kind of happy designs you could make with this adorable line. The touches of glitter will add just a dash of sparkle, and the cute motifs will make any scrapbook page smile.

Time to Win!
Inspired yet? It’s your lucky day. We’re giving away assorted items from each of these lines, as well as various items from our Jan/Feb “Latest & Greatest” magazine column. Want your name inthe drawing hat? Simply leave a comment on this post between now and next Friday, Jan. 20. We’ll randomly select two lucky winners and one of them might as well be you.

    To choose right one you have to be aware of the current
    changes and availability of new features. Out of those who did their research first,
    75 percent of them found that spending time on a retailer’s website first was helpful.
    Online dog boutiques have made it possible for dog owners to buy
    all kinds of designer stuff which can provide magnificent and stylish looks to any dog.
