fun in a box!

i received a very, very fun box of goodies in the mail today from Crate Paper.  Acorn Avenue, On Trend, and Sleigh Ride will be arriving in retail stores very soon for you to ooh and aah over.  the CP Design Team got ours a little early so we can create beautiful projects to inspire all of you!  i opened my package immediately and took a few photos so i could share. 

the first things i saw were these paper flowers from On Trend.  they're big and pretty and i can't wait to use them!

stickers!  from Sleigh Ride and Acorn Avenue.  back in July, i got a few things from AA and OT in order to make projects for CHA, but didn't have anything from Sleigh Ride yet so i was excited to see it in person.  it's really lovely--wait until you see the papers!

wood flowers from Acorn these!

something new...tape stickers.  really cute with jagged ends.  these are On Trend, but Acorn Avenue also has some (you can catch a glimpse in the sticker photos above).

luckily, i have a big project due for CP next week so i can dive in right away and start playing!  as for on the lookout because Acorn Avenue and On Trend will soon be available in stores so you can do the very same thing.  (You'll have to wait slightly longer for Sleigh Ride.)  be sure to check out the Crate Paper blog this whole month to see lots of projects featuring the new collections.  Go and be inspired!
