These brand new Paper Pads from Rubbernecker are the perfect addition to our awesome lineup!
We have been sitting on this news for a while and we are so excited to finally share the first of our new line of Paper Pads from Rubbernecker that are going to make your card making even more fun! We’ve had these at a couple of shows and were ITCHING to get the full order into the store. They are finally here (a teeny bit ahead of schedule) and we absolutely could not wait one more second to get them up on the shelves for you to grab.
We have so much information to share about these fabulous Paper Pads but first, let’s take a look at them!
First up is our gorgeous Autumn Leaves Paper Pad, just in time for all your Fall cards. We’ve been sharing beautiful Fall projects all month and we have so many – plus a few surprises in September – that we are continuing our celebration of this gorgeous season for another month. We don’t want to give away all the details but let’s just say if you snap up this Paper Pad now, you will be psyched that you did when you see what’s in store for you in the next couple of weeks or so.
Next is our boo-tiful Spook-Tacular Paper Pad. We went with a very pretty and on trend orange, purple and gray color story and these paper are absolutely gorgeous! And yes, next month’s treats will make using these papers no trick at all!
And of course, we couldn’t leave out the Christmas season. We know a lot of you have been planning out your holiday cards already and we know you will want to incorporate some of the designs from our Ho Ho Ho Paper Pad. With slightly brighter, more saturated colors and fanciful designs, these papers are so perfect!
How about some delicious details about our new Paper Pads? First, they are printed on 80# weight paper. For those of you not familiar with what this number means, all these designs are printed on paper that is very close to the weight of card stock. This means that you can die cut these sheetss and they will hold up beautifully as well as serve as nice, crisp, sturdy layers on a project.
Another fantastic feature of these Paper Pads are they are all double sided! We made sure that in each pad, the patterns and solids work together beautifully. And we made sure that solids and patterns intended to work together are on the back sides of OTHER designs, not each other. We know there’s nothing worse than running out of a solid you love because it’s on the back of the pattern you want to use.
There are 24 sheets of 6 X 6 paper in each of the Paper Pads with two of each design. There are so many creative opportunities in each of our Paper Pads and at just $7.95 each that’s just about 30 cents a sheet. Most other patterned papers are either about the same or more and are NOT even close to card stock weight They also aren’t always scaled for card making and aren’t precut for this handy size that is ideal for cards.
Speaking of scale, do you have stacks of patterned papers that you can’t use on cards because the designs are too big? Some of those patterns are big enough to be wallpaper! Many paper assortments are still created with all kinds of papercrafters in mind so while there might be one or two designs you can use, the rest of the designs are more appropriate for scrapbooking or 3D paper art, making some of what you just bought not usable. Bummer! ALL the designs in our new Paper Pads were specifically chosen, sized, scaled and repeated to give you gorgeous edge to edge details on your cards.
Here are some suggestions of Color Fuse sets that will work with these new colorful patterned papers so as you are adding your Paper Pads to your card, check your Color Fuse inventory and add the sets that you love the most.
