look what we got: global collection

Have you seen our new global collection?  
It's the latest in BRAND NEW products to arrive in our warehouse and is ready to ship now!
Maps are popping up everywhere~ decor, fashion, decoupage and all over our favorite craft inspiration sites.  We're even seeing large scale maps framed and sold as wall decor! 
(check out the latest Restoration Hardware catalog)
We've long been inspired by old maps and charts.  They represent a sense of adventure and exploration of places we've been or long to visit.  Some tell stories of places that have changed with time.
Our inspiration for global was drawn from our own collection of maps and charts.   We reconstructed parts of each to create this line of papers. 

Many of the papers are centered around places of meaning for us including the birthplace of our founders.

You'll find that most of these papers have a warm, vintage palette of colors.  

We also think the Global collection coordinates beautifully with our CAMDEN collection and have been playing with combinations from both paper lines on our projects.
Have you seen the fun Globe paperchain?  
It's featured in our last post as a DIY project!
The papers come in 12x12, 8x8 and 6x6 sizes.  You'll LOVE seeing these maps in the mini 6x6... so cute!
A FABULOUS chipboard alphabet covered with a map overlay! 
And some pretty art tags.  We can't wait to use these on gifts and in the Artist Printers Tray.  Maybe even a mini tag book?
And we've saved our FAVORITE for last: the new Global papertape.  It is so GOOD~ we can't wait to start using it on everything.  
(we'll have to wait just a bit longer~ it's the only global collection element not shipping now~ but will be here soon!)

They are works of art. You could frame one and hang it in your study on the wall.
