I'm delighted to introduce Scribe and Maison, two new collections for K&Co which will debut during this week’s Winter CHA in Anaheim.
First, a bit of background about Scribe. The inspiration for this collection came during a visit to Ernest Hemingway’s home in Havana a few years ago. It was truly fascinating to tour the residence of this American literary master.
I loved seeing the rich palette in the study where Hemingway stood at his typewriter and wrote Old Man and the Sea, surrounded by a tidy assortment of pens and paper. The eccentric, charming home is filled with Hemingway's personal collections from his exciting adventures as a journalist, hunter and war correspondent.
The Scribe Specialty Paper Pad includes 28 double-sided sheets, with special touches like shimmer paper, foil, and froth. The shimmer paper is luxurious and silky, and it’s perfect for projects that need just a little bit of sparkle.
The Scribe Die-Cut Cardstock is a collection of 40 large number tags and shapes, with vintage patterns on a rich color palette.
The Scribe Enclosure Grand Adhesions are perfect for handmade cards. The little drawer and matchbooks actually open and close. Ribbon, paperclip, gems and foil accents make these Grand Adhesions extra-special!
The Scribe Metal Art Clips is an assortment of cute paper clips with a metal and epoxy embellishment featuring vintage, writer-inspired icons.
The Scribe Ephemera Pack features icons and embellishments inspired by literary classics and vintage communication.
The Scribe Icon Grand Adhesions are dimensional stickers with vintage literary images including sparkling gems, real feathers and ribbons.
I am thrilled that K&Co is reintroducing Maison, one of my favorite collections from a few years ago. Maison is a sweet, vintage collection that takes you on a little journey through the cobblestone streets, romantic parks and quaint shops of Paris. The paper designs and embellishments were inspired by my journal sketches, as well as vintage documents, postcards and florals collected from excursions to Parisian “brocantes” (second hand markets).
The Maison Specialty Paper Pad contains 28 double-sided sheets, some with special touches of thermography, glitter, shimmer, froth and foil.
The Maison Die-Cut Cardstock includes 80 tags and frames, featuring vintage patterns and expressions.
The Maison Flower Grand Adhesions are perfect for handmade cards and decorations, and feature real gems, ribbon and touches of glitter.
I hope you have fun incorporating these new papers and embellishments into your cardmaking and papercrafting projects! They are available online now, and in Michaels and craft stores nationwide by Spring 2013.
