idea-ology sneak peek 2013 (part 1)…

ideaology1hey everyone – thank you so much for once again sharing your excitement for the new releases debuting at cha-summer this month.  as a designer it is by far the most exciting thing when i get to share all of the new products and ideas we’ve been working on.  well it’s day 2 of sneak peeks and part 1 of 2 for idea-ology.  today i want to introduce you to one of my new release paper lines for this show: laboratorie.  this mix of eclectic patterns and scientific imagery is ideal for halloween, but also perfect for the steampunk lover.  with it’s simplistic black and white palette layered with scuffs and scratches, laboratorie can be accented with any colors of inks and paints to make it all your own… (scroll to the bottom of the post for a closer look at the collection)


of course laboratorie is also complemented with new tissue tapes, new remnant rubs (this time with a sheet of black AND white rubs), new worn cover as well as some really fun embellishments including mini metal skull & crossbones charms.  i’ve also created new word bands with bold words to add to any kind of project from a travel journal to your favorite found collections.  new trimmings are also being introduced with the coordinating black and neutral colors, and natural textures perfect for inking.  i would have to say one of the new products i’m most excited about in this collection are corked domes.. these glass domes are big enough to add your favorite mini trinkets, yet small enough to use in configurations – so cool…


if you liked the industrious stickers we introduced earlier this year, you’re going to love the new industrious stickers for this launch.  the tall and skinny deco type and new border strips (stars, scallops, leaves, lace) are ideal for creating on cards, tags, on photos, and more…


the burlap panels have also been a huge hit.  if you haven’t created on one yet, what are you waiting for?  their sturdy surface wrapped in natural burlap allow the ultimate surface to create on.  whether you’re painting, collaging, or layering with photos and ephemera, burlap panels add a unique texture to any project.  the new mini burlap panels can be layered on the larger panels or used on smaller mixed media projects…


here’s a look at the full laboratorie paper stash complete with 12″x12″, 6″x6″, 2″x2″, and ATC and border strips.  i’ll be back tomorrow with more idea-ology goodness.  enjoy today…t!m
