CHA- Paper Lines & More: Crate Paper

Crate Paper introduced three new paper lines at the CHA Summer Show, and added some new goodies as well.
Each theme — School Spirit, Restoration and Snow Day — include new fabric-covered and epoxy brads, chipboard accents layered with buttons, felt and rhinestones, and the ever-popular 6″x6″ sized paper pads. The new papers are shipping Aug. 20.
Just in time for back-to-school is the School Spirit line featuring double-sided papers with muted colors and fun, vintage patterns. I love the little schoolhouse paper with the buses and merry-go-round. Of course the banner paper is cute, too.
Here are the coordinating embellies, stickers, chipboard and brads:

Here’s the Restoration line, versatile enough for masculine and feminine pages. I love that cent paper with the diecut edge. Yummy!

and the coordinating goodies:

Next up is Snow Day. I’m a sucker for snowmen, and I love the colors on these guys:

And the coordinating extras. The 6″x6″ pads were made in response to request from cardmakers. The patterns on the smaller papers are full sized.

Here are some cards that were on display:

And some layouts featuring the new themes:

We’re looking forward to a Fall full of cuteness from Crate Paper!
