E.-Frances-HeaderE.Frances Paper C&C BlogE. Frances C&C Blog 2E. Frances C&C Blog 3It is with great pride that I post a sneak peek of a few of E. Frances Paper’s newest product debuting at NSS. I had the utmost pleasure of offering a bit of mentorship to E. Frances, prior to their launch last fall and I continue to be blown away by their beautiful, poignant and funny releases – perfect combo in my book! The ladies behind E. Frances, Ali, Pip and Jenni, will be launching quite a few new cards including a new take on their watercolor washes with foil stamping and a very fun new product is shown above with many uses, “Little Notes”, they each include 85 itty bitty notes to be used for any occassion, a gift tag, a lunch note, to put under a windshield wiper, etc. Be sure to say howdy to these three sweet sisters in Booth No. 2045

The 2014 Stationery Show marks our 8th trade show at Javits, in which we have the honor to showcase the immense talent behind Red Cap Cards! Their newest releases are SO spot on, 36 new cards will be featured and Red Cap has added yet another talented illustrator to the ranks, Josie Portillo (middle card above). An additional note that there is also a very sweet lady version of the same sex wedding card, (bottom image) designed by Anke Weckmann, that will be available later this month. Top “Good Luck” card is designed by an eternal RCC favorite, Becca Stadtlander. Swing by and see more in Booth No. 2824!

Think & Ink is making their debut at NSS and I’m delighted to give you a peek of what will be on display. I’m crazy about the color palettes and all of the fun new designs.

chrissasakipressAll of us at C&C are delighted by the addition of artist Chris Sasaki to the Red Cap Cards line up. We had the pleasure of debuting these designs (and more) at the National Stationery Show last month and our buyers were equally enthusiastic about these beauties. How perfect would the bears card be for Father’s Day?

new releases from ghost academy and spontaneous goody giveaway

March 30, 2009  /  block printing, ghost academy, giveaway, new releases

Ghost Academy has a ton of new designs for spring! I’m totally in love with the new wooden gift tags above, they’re sold singly and as an uber cute set. I highly recomend Megan’s blog tutorial on block printing, for all you crafty types. While you’re at it, be sure to check out their award ribbons that have nearly achieved a cult following, they make an excellent gift. I only wish I could claim GA alumni status…

I have three Ghost Academy cards to giveaway to one lucky reader. Just take a brief moment to check out their newly re-designed website and come back to this posting to comment. I will randomly draw one winner on Friday, April 3rd.
