crate paper heart day collection

lp_cp_heartday

It may not even be Thanksgiving yet but the new Valentine’s Day collections are already starting to roll in! Up first is the Crate Paper Heart Day collection!!!

It is soooo stinkin’ cute! There are some really great papers and embellishments that can be used all year around and definitely some that are Valentine’s specific.

I tend to not go for collections or products with cutesy imagery …. lovey dovey collections are the exception to that rule.

This collections has the most adorable heart shaped strawberries, I swoon! And can we talk about the cacti … emoji puffy hearts … and sickly sweet cupcakes? Let’s take a look at these too cute for words products.

Here is an overview of the papers but I wanted to point out a couple of my all time favorites.

My Love: This paper is adorable on both sides (all the more reason to order 2) I just love the irregular dot pattern over the blush hearts. The B side is the most adorable cactus pattern ever.

Sweethearts: This fringe paper is soo cute. I love that it gives the look of dimension without adding any bulk to your projects.

Lovely: This has to be my favorite! It is very reminiscent of a Studio Calico paper I received in a kit that I just couldn’t get enough of. I love the fresh take on a stripe by adding the dot pattern.

And my favorite embellishments have to be the puffy stickers and the 12×12 chipboard.

open box: hallmark scrapbook

I recently discovered Hallmark Scrapbook and placed my first order. Below are the links to the products and a video showing them, and what I plan to do with them, in detail. I always enjoy finding new places online, especially because I do not have any local stores that sell these products.

I wanted to share my overall thoughts on the experience of ordering from Hallmark Scrapbook:

The website is super user friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

They have great prices.

Many of the newest cardmaking products.

They have an affiliate program, which is awesome.

It seems to be more focused on cardmaking which is interesting given the name is Hallmark Scrapbook. I noticed very little scrapbooking supplies, and minimal if any 12×12 paper.

This is not a store for the embellishment shopper, they mainly carry, in my opinion, stamps, dies, tools, cardstock. That being said, they have a wonderful selection of those items and I loved that I could get the latest Lawn Fawn releases and the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock I needed. Most of the time those items would have to come from different places.

I did notice many of the new products were sold out fairly quickly, specifically the newest Altenew and WPlus9 releases. My suggestion would be to get to their website quickly after new releases so as not to miss them.

Shipping is $9.99 or free for order over $99.00, I found that to be a but high but most if not all of the products on their site are discounted so I would imagine it works out to be about retail in the end. Note: the free shipping option is USPS or FedEx and shipped very quickly.

All in all I would definitely recommend checking out Hallmark Scrapbook especially for you cardmakers or stampers. I have not had to deal with their customer service but I will keep you posted if and when I ever need to.

Thanks so much for stopping by and please check out the products linked below and the video.
