As many of you know, the National Stationery Show took place back in mid-May. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend, but it got me thinking about what goes into preparing for exhibition at a large show like the NSS.
Sarah Champlin of Sarah Marie Designs exhibited at the National Stationery Show for the first time this year, and she’ll be Paper Crave’s guest blogger throughout next week as she takes us through the process of preparing for the event. I’m so excited about this and am so thankful that Sarah will be sharing her experience with us. Be on the lookout for the first post in the series on Monday!
Ooh, you know how I love grungy, distressed scrapbooking paper designs, so naturally I was drawn to these awesome designs from K & Company’s Urban Rhapsody collection. The muted rainbow palette, the baroque-ish ornaments, the stylized birds, butterflies, flowers, and creeping tendrils…drool.
Featured papers (clockwise, from top left): Brocade Shimmer, Sugar Rush, Points of Interest, Candy Stripe, Golden State of Mind, and Garden Collage. Pick them up at various scrapbooking shops.
