Love is in the Air- New Valentine's Papers & Stamps!

Wow- we are certainly in the season of love at Eclectica and the rubber stamps and paper selections arriving daily heartily attest to that! We have a HUGE selection of Valentine's papers, and most can be used for all sorts of non Valentine's things! We received in THREE stamp lines last week too- Memory Box, A Muse Art Stamps and Great Impressions.

We'll begin with all that paper though! Take for instance, SEI's new release, Love Birds. It smacks of spring and femininity. There are only a couple of papers in this line that I would say are very Valentine's and with the color palette of browns, blues, pinks and oranges, it certainly has some versatility to it!
Next in the list of to-die-for papers, Making Memories Love Notes. This line has several double sided card stocks, 3 single sided Kraft papers, and three specialty papers. The embellishments are wonderful- there are two alpha sticker sets, brads, a journaling notebook, looking glass pieces and ribbon slides. It's a very classic looking line with some really gorgeous papers.
Thirdly, Little Yellow Bicycle's line is just so gorgeous! It coordinates wonderfully with December's QuicKutz release, Elegant Essentials! Think of what gorgeous wedding invitations or prom pages this paper would make! The top left one is flocked and it is just too luxe! This line has 3 flocked papers and several embellishments.
Now, you've all waited so patiently and looked at all the pretty papers, let me wow you with the stamps! A Muse is just absolutely adorable! And Rhonda will be teaching an A Muse Card class using these stamps in February, so watch the calendar. The one she did for the July Christmas release was great and everyone loved it.
And, my favorite- Memory Box. They always manage to create the classiest cards that are simple enough that you can easily reproduce them. I *love* the 6x6 paper pack that was released with this line as well- they're just beautiful papers.
