CHA Scrapbooking: Crate Paper

Crate Paper‘s CHA release seemed to be on a lot of people’s favorites list. They have released four new paper collections that they hope will easily mix and match with other collections for all your crafty endeavors.
Each new collection includes embellishments, and they have added a few more this year. The first of these new additions are Accent Cuts, which is a double-sided sheet of tags and journaling cards that you can cut up to use on your projects. The Eclectic Buttons also debuted at the show and these sets of 14 custom buttons are very dimensional and beautiful in person. 

Emma’s Shoppe is a beautiful, girly collection with a vintage flair that Crate Paper says was inspired by (and can easily be combined with) their super popular Restoration collection from their last CHA release.

Toy Box is exactly what you might expect to find when peeking into an old toy box filled with bright and fun playthings. We love that although a few sides of these papers are very boy specific (which is definitely something we need) this collection could very easily be used for lots of different occasions and non-events as well.

Portrait was a huge hit at the show and we have to say that we agree with the buzz. We can definitely see this wedding and family inspired collection becoming a go-to collection for beautifully crafted events, family history albums, and any other page for that matter. The combination of colors and the gorgeous tones really are lovely.

The last of the 4 new Crate Paper collections is Neighborhood, a whimsical, springlike collection in those classic Spring colors updated with dashes of admiral blue and adorable pennant banners, birds, flowers, and other cute little indicators of Spring.

We’re finding it impossible to pick just one favorite collection from Crate Paper’s new release, but are asking you to do just that! Which of the 4 new collections could you see yourself using the most, and what would you scrapbook with it?

    I’m a huge fan of Crate Paper. I am not sure if I love Portrait more or Emma’s Shoppe – but I see myself using them to make some home decor wall art and cards galore. So pretty!
