from our workshop: cha winter sneak peek #1

We are packed up and headed to CHA and excited to share the new release with gypsies at the show!  
Be sure to check our facebook for pictures and updates from the show floor.

While we're traveling we've got the blog setup to share our new release with all of you that won't be attending the show.  Enjoy!


Our newest collection is called Postale.  
It is a 12 paper collection, yes 12 fantastic postale papers to choose from!! 

Here's a quick look at some of our collection inspiration boards.

We drew inspiration for this new collection from all things postal~ stripes, colors and more.  We not only loved that it allowed us to bring in elements of this new trend, but that the collection speaks to the written letter and its journey from sender to a far off destination.




We also LOVE the strong clean look of typography and the design elements associated with letterpress and felt that this would also work well with the postal theme.



Vintage signs, arrows, the swiss cross and the textures of worn paint and metal were also part of our inspiration for the paper designs.

You'll see that what transpired in our designs was 6 postale papers with fabulous, rich color layered under crisp whites for an authentic vintage look.  But because we know every gypsy loves the antiqued look we also created 6 designs with an antiqued finish and call those Antiquaries Postale....

POSTALE






ANTIQUARIES POSTALE







The paper collection is also available in 6x6 and 8x8 paper packs.  You'll get 4 of each design in these scaled down versions of the 12x12 papers.  Perfect for ATC, Cardmaking and mini albums!

POST a comment and let us know what you think of the new paper line!!  You never know when we just MIGHT giveaway a set to our most enthusiastic gypsy.

Check back Sunday for a look at all the fun Postale collection products that coordinate with our papers and hear more about the inspiration behind the design!

even with as much as I love the "sneak peak" of the new Postale line, I'm in complete awe of the inspiration for the collection. It's a nod to an era that is rapidly leaving us.
Great Job, I would love to be lucky enough to win this collection.

Very cool and vintagey (is that a word? I guess it is now!). Seeing those blue and red stripes takes me back to those days long ago of writing letters while on vacation in France, on that special, tissue thin, air mail paper with the special, tissue thin envelopes!
