#1 Bella Blvd - I have been in love with their bold & bright designs from the get-go & have been following them since their start. I even won their first layout contest ever back in my earlier scrappy days :) I LOVE so many of their new collections this season but particularly fell in love with One Fall Day - is anyone else ready for fall??? I definitely am :)
#2 Studio Calico - I have been a subscriber for years - even though months have gone by with me not being able to play with their kits - I still kept getting them - how could I not resist receiving that yummy package every month??? I LOVE the unique style to their products - they make me step outside of my comfort zone :)
These wood veneers are awesome . . .
And the new mists - WOW - can't wait to try the white - it will show up on dark paper - how cool is that???
#3 Doodlebug - Okay, I have purchased their products here & there over the past few years but this year - I really have enjoyed their collections. I am totally in LOVE with these (but then I am slightly obsessed with buttons) . . .
#4 Crate Paper - I have been a fan of them since some of their earliest collections & they have only got better & better with age :) This season they TOTALLY rocked it - I LOVE every single line & just need them ALL!!!
I think Snow Day is just adorable . . . Restoration just breathtaking . . .and School Spirit - well an absolute must have - please give me two of everything in that collection!!! Here are a few pics of these goodies!!!
#5 My Mind's Eye - What can I say - a scrapper's staple - I am sure everyone has a little (or alot in my case) tucked away in their stash. They have some absolutely gorgeous lines this go around but I fell head over heels for 2 of them - first up this CUTE line called Alphabet Soup - check it out . . .
Now we are big fans of Halloween in my house & pre-child used to throw a doozy of a party each year - I'm talking costume party, 150 adults easy, all catered by me (can you imagine doing that with children for that many people - never), decorations galore, we even had a band one year (okay it was my brother's band but he did play in a few clubs in the city). Anyways - I am not the entertainer I once was but nevertheless we still like to do it up here at the Bonner house for any holiday - including Halloween. Yes, Ryan has already started making decorations - we get this going early around here :) Anyways - I LOVE MME new Halloween line Blackbird - it is simply adorable & will be perfect for my pics of Ryan. Check it out . . .
Do you like it - well guess what - I have an extra set of Blackbird paper, chipboard, and brads on their way to my house as we speak for one lucky reader - I LOVE you guys!!! You keep me blogging :) Just leave a comment between now & tomorrow night before midnight sharing your favorite holiday tradition - any holiday, anything special your family likes to do :) Have a fab Saturday!!!
Be back tomorrow to share my other fave 5 manufacturers of the season & maybe . . .just maybe . . . one more giveaway of something new & totally fabulous!!! Thanks everyone :)
