Did you know that Pantone announces a Color of the Year every year? That's right, the people who are the first AND last word in color have given us what promises to be the most popular color in home and fashion this year. And we all know how paper crafting follows these trends, right? So, this year's color is RGB 203-101-134:
I know, that is quite a bright shade of pink! But you can be sure to find similar shades in many scrapbook lines this year, and boy do they look great. As an example, let me give you a little sneak peek of some products from Close To My Heart that will be available beginning February 1.
Announcing Sweetheart! Actually darker than it seems here because of the specific papers used, this paper pack features the colors Baby Pink, Black, Cotton Candy, and Tulip. Coordinating MyStickease includes loving sentiments and titles, along with hearts, flowers, brackets, and more. The Sweetheart Workshop Kit contains the paper pack, a sweet exclusive stamp set, a Sweetheart assortment of 32 epoxy stickers in black with white polka dots, and a workshop guide, all at the discounted price of $29.95.
Presenting Sophia! Named for Close To My Heart founder Jeanette Lynton's new granddaughter, these papers are full of fun flowers, stripes, dots, and phrases. Featured colors are Blush, Goldrush, Hollyhock, and Pear. (Hollyhock happens to be one of my favorite CTMH colors; it's the "perfect pink"!) Coordinating MyStickease contain flowers, borders, and flourishes, and a great title piece. The Sophia Workshop Kit contains the paper pack, the exclusive Sophia stamp set, a pink button assortment, Colonial White Waxy Flax, and a workshop guide, all for the discounted price of $29.95.
Return to Mayberry! These pretty paper designs hearken back to a simpler time, including a quilted looking pattern and a slightly aged feel. Coordinating MyStickease images include a cruiser bike, clouds, a kite, pennants, fruit & more, plus possible titles of Life is beautiful and Life's little Moments. The Mayberry Workshop Kit includes a paper pack, an exclusive Mayberry stamp set, a package of canvas badge buttons, and a workshop guide, all for the discounted price of $29.95.
Other new products full of pink charm are the Sophia Journaling Spots, Pink Assortment Brads, and Pink Collection Ribbon (featuring the most beautiful flower ribbon EVER). Be watching as February 1st approaches for more previews of Sweetheart, plus see the prettiest ribbon in the Pink Collection for the first time!
