Product Updates



Just a quick product post update. Basic Grey Kioshi and Green at Heart are now in stock along with various coordinating accessories. I LOVE both of these lines. Kioshi is very pastely and perfect for Easter or Spring cards. Green at Heart is bright pinks and rich greens – very earthy and pretty. There’s also some new ribbon in. Several of the new crepe ribbons were chosen at CHA because they coordinated so nicely with these lines and the new SEI lines, Happy Day, Claire and Jocelyn. (Claire and Happy Day also have EXCLUSIVE polymer buttons that are being made especially for i {heart} papers. You won’t find them anywhere else! )

I’ve added some ribbon suggestions to the paper pad pages of these two new BG collections to help you matchy match your ribbons.

We also now have white cardstock perfect for your Copics! This cardstock is manufactured in the US and was developed under the watchful eye of Sally Lynn MacDonald, Regional Copic Certification Instructor…so she knows her Copics! It is 8-1/2” x 11” and is available in a Detail Blending Weight, which is a medium weight 80lb paper and also in a One Sheet Wonder, heavyweight 120lb paper. The heavier weight allows you to do one layer cards with no bleed-through.

For comparison purposes, here are my opinions. The medium one is perfect for printing your digis or layering. It is heavier than Stampin’ Up’s white, but easily ran through my printer (HP Laserjet 1012) and is about the same brightness but not quite as smooth.

The heavier one feels the same as PTI’s white but is a bit smoother. I haven’t tried running it through my printer yet. My printer can handle PTI but it doesn’t really like it and needs to be hand fed. It’s a bit of a baby that way. :)

OK, enough rambling. Hey - are you our fan on Facebook? You should be! It’s the way to get up to the minute information on what I’m waiting for to come in and as soon as things are updated I post on Facebook. So…head on over and become a fan!
