I'm warning you now, this post may send you over the top with excitement. I know, I've been excited ever since we began the process of manufacturing the items here and it's been so tough to keep my lips sealed about all the goodness in this post.
Let's start with Wood Veneer. We received so much positive feedback about the self-adhesive wood veneer circle frames that were included in your Quilting Bee kit back in March, that we got right on the horn and began the process to have more shapes for you for a CHA summer release. I can't tell you how many horror stories we've had with this stuff, but it's absolutely gorgeous in person and was totally worth the effort.
The Stars are a 6x6" set and you get two sheets of the same thing within one package!
Same with the Square Frames. There are two sets of 6x6" frames in one package.
And my favorite accomplishment....our Wood Veneer Alphabet. Ain't she pretty? This is on a 6x12" sheet and of course, it's self-adhesive as well.
Next, a new item, we call "Notions" that is sure to be expanded upon in the future.
These are small, 1.5" approximately, tissue paper flowers that were printed to look like vintage dress patterns. According to Nicole Harper, it's one flower she can actually use. And according to Stephanie Howell, she might need to purchase our whole inventory because they're going to be on every one of her layouts.
Finally, the last items to show you from our release, and I couldn't be more thrilled about them. Our color mists, which Stephen appropriately named "Mister Huey's"
We have 5 Calico colors which will be our standard colors. Get this....the white and cream are opaque!!! You can spray them on dark cardstock and they keep their color. I about screamed out loud when I first sprayed them. Maggie Holmes is using the white as we speak for some booth-work and I think she's as thrilled as I am.
The Classic Calico is a nice tan color. Warm Calico is a good gray, not too brown or black. Dark Calico is a wonderful deep chocolate, no hints of red or orange, just a good basic brown.
These are our limited edition colors. They perfectly match the Elementary Collection, so no more searching for mists to match your papers...these make it a no-brainer!
All the mists are sized in small 1oz bottles with colorful labels so you know the EXACT color you are spraying. No more accidentally picking up the wrong color and messing up an entire sheet of paper. We took the guesswork out of the way. These will retail for $5.50 apiece, even the opaque white and cream.
Feel free to let us know what you think. Let me know the first item you would purchase from the ones listed in this post and I'll pick 5 winners who will win their item of choice.
Thanks for all your support during our sneaks of CHA. All items will ship mid-September and we'd be thrilled if you'd ask for Studio Calico at your local scrapbook store or favorite online store.
