We’re not fooling around—Seasonal Expressions 2 is here!

In honor of the long-awaited arrival of Seasonal Expressions 2, we’ve compiled a list of our 7 favorite products that are now available! Check it out! And while you’re at it, keep a lookout for an April Fools’ Day surprise. 😉

1. Workshops on the Go® Blossom Cardmaking Kit
Grab your swimsuits, everyone! It’s time to take a dive into a pool of colors. We love this kit’s combination of the vibrant Blossom papers and the summery stamp set, which is available exclusively through this kit. Throw in coral reef sequins and Glacier extra thick twine, and you’ve got a recipe for a summer cooler we’ll happily sip all afternoon.

2. My Acrylix® Wavy Blooms
The flowers in this stamp set practically bloom off the page! They’re breezy and beautiful and will effortlessly take on any color you choose. We love using ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers to create luminous spectrums that radiate from the page, but feel free to color them any which way you please because, honey, you’re the only florist in this flower shop.

3. My Crush™ For Her and For Him Books
We know, we know, we’ve told you we’re in love with our My Crush™ books a thousand times, but this crush just isn’t going away. If anything, it’s getting stronger. We’ve got the love bug, and, with new additions like the For Her and For Him books, we’re proud of it! Everything about these books is on point and, let’s face it, we’re borderline obsessed with them.

4. Carnival and Boardwalk Washi Tape Packs
First there were the strawberries on the cover and now this? Summer can’t come fast enough with all of these new products pouring sunshine into our hearts! This is probably the most versatile washi tape that’s ever come through our doors—you can use it in strips or as individual labels. We can’t wait to see it popping up on all your projects!

 5. My Creations™ Mini Mix Album
Ever since we laid eyes on this little album, our imaginations have been going cuckoo with all the possibilities! It’s small enough to be adorable, but big enough to hold lots of bits and pieces, including all those square photos from your Instagram account. And the variety of vellum, kraft, and white cardstock pages keeps things a little mixed up in the best kind of way.

 6. Blossom and Jackson Assortments
It’s no secret that we love working with papers, stickers, twine, tape, and other things that bend to our creative wills, but every once in a while a crafter likes to use something with a bit more backbone, which is precisely why we’re smitten with these metal-rimmed, enamel-filled pieces! Each one brings a jolt of personality all its own. They are just the right kind of adhesive-backed novelty we love to stick on our projects.

 7. Supersized Diapers
As modeled so elegantly by our COO Brian Holman’s Smart car, these supersized diapers are a godsend to keep your car from making a mess all over town. Thanks to the plush fabric and contouring fit, this baby car can finally receive the care and nurture an infant like itself deserves! If you really want to get creative, try these diapers on oversized cats, dogs, and children. It’s your guaranteed defense for when nature calls! Works like a charm.IMG_0841 (1)
APRIL FOOLS! Sorry, Brian. But your car is kind of a baby. 🙂

AND THE CULPRIT IS . . .IMG_0842
STICKY BOY! Why are we not surprised?

Happy April Fools’ Day, everyone!

Artwork for All Seasons

The release of another great idea book means we have an excuse to share even more artwork! When it comes to memory keeping, we know that each person takes a unique approach. We love to see beautiful, high-level artwork, but we know that it isn’t always realistic to add all the bells and whistles to every layout. After all, soccer practice, piano recitals, family meals, and all those other demands are important, too! Today’s artwork celebrates a style of memory keeping that is less elaborate, but no less lovely.

The beauties below are all done with just a few ingredients: B&T Duos™ papers and selected embellishments—no stamping required!

The charming papers of the Heartstrings paper packet make beautiful layouts devoted to those you love.

Journaling spot

Did you notice that the journaling spot on this layout is really a Heartstrings Complement in disguise?

Aren’t these strips of washi tape fitting? Surprise! These aren’t washi tape strips at all—they’re stickers from the Heartstrings Complements. Their coordinating colors make them the perfect fit for this layout.

You don’t have to add a lot to a layout to make it complete! The clean and classy look of this layout is very attractive.

Hopscotch title Complement

The size of a title isn’t the only feature that can make it stand out. This sentiment from the Hopscotch Complements captures the right tone of the layout and draws the eye right away. It achieves the same look as a stamped image without getting your fingers inky!

Thanks to our coordinating papers and accessories, you’ve got lots of tools at your disposal for creating quality layouts. Get started with these adorable new products from Seasonal Expressions 1!
