Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I feel very lucky to show you four brand new items today, and I think you’ll agree they are better than a pot of gold…ha!
First is a card kit that will help you create 30 mini masterpieces in minutes. The Pretty Paintings Card Making Kit is filled with delicate hand painted card surfaces, layers, foil embellishments and so much more. The sentiment inserts for the inside of these cards was also thoughtfully designed to work with either a portrait or landscape card! You’re going to adore this kit.
For those of you who haven’t noticed, we are absolutely loving butterflies this year. Our new tote bags and stationery are adorned with them for spring, and now we have an entire set of dies devoted to them! The new Butterfly Cutting Dies feature five designs in a variety of sizes. There’s even a trellis die for your butterflies to land on. These are the first in a year long autoship program that you won’t want to miss signing up for on March 24th!
Next is a new set of Metallic Layers, which are always a favorite. Remember our most recent shades of 5″x7” colors? Now you’ll have a 5.5″x12” set that fits perfectly into our 12” embossing folders! This palette is perfect for every occasion, from subtle ivory to bright pink and green, and includes 48 sheets in 12 different hues.
Speaking of 12” folders, it’s about time for another set of those isn’t it? Introducing the 12” Lace Gatefold Embossing Folders for Cuttlebug! These six folder designs include score lines so that you can make gorgeous gatefold cards or invitations in seconds. Each one even has a coordinating seal to cut or punch out that can close your card or envelope- I love this little detail!
If you own a Cricut Explore, there are free cutting files in Design Space that coordinate with the Lace Gatefold folders! To find these files, search for “Anna Griffin” and scroll all the way to the bottom of our image library (they are in blue). You will need to size them to 12″ to fit the folders after dropping them into your project, or follow this link to a saved project we made that contains all of them pre-sized: https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/25991755

Bye for now,
