Origins is their other new release and it has a very rich, earthy feel. These papers are also double sided cardstock weight and have a variety of pattern sizes (which we LOVE!) It's a hot palette for weddings right now too and the inclusion of black gives these prints a very classy, upscale feel that would make it wonderful for invitations, thank you notes and more. We've also brought in a nice selection of coordinating embellishments for this line. Additionally, Basic Grey released several new designs in their matching Bling and Opaline stickers. Some are designed to coordinate with the new lines while others are just nice, basic staples that can be worked into pretty much any project!

October Afternoon also has a barnyard themed line- Farm Fresh. (it's the one on the right) Their school line has delightful vintage elements that make it perfect for scrapbooking grandma's 6th grade picture as well as your own little one's yearbook photo.
We were just complaining about the lack of good fall papers (not that we don't LOVE BasicGrey's Indian Summer) when Cosmo Cricket's 'Nutmeg' preview showed up in our inbox. The colors are rich and fresh- nothing less than you would expect from Cosmo. The patterns are also adorable! We are all big fans of the cute critters. :) There are Paper Crafting Packs, Ready-Set-Chip, stickers, Mini-decks and all 6 papers with the borders and elements here. The patterns are great for mini books and cards too because they're smaller.
