CHA 2012 Sneak Peak {Postale Collection}

Yesterday was 7gypsies official launch for CHA Winter 2012.  There are 2 new collections.  Postale is up first and it is a little different, in that there are two, 6 paper collections: Postale and Antiquaries Postale.  Postale is white based and Anitquaries Postale is more Kraft based.  Each paper is different, so it is really 24 papers in all.  This paper has been one of our biggest challenges in the booth this show.  How to show twenty-four, 12 x 12" papers in one 4 foot section??  After it is assembled at CHA we will show you what we came up with.
Both are of the color stories are tremendous and really harken back to some of the images we love about vintage.  This paper is very detailed and layered so I know these images will never do it justice.  But here we go.





 Loving Sande's use of the vintage pins here.  Same one I used in the dome project earlier this month.

I have been using the new paper tape this week...super sheer, but it still has the backing so you can cut into it without it sticking to your scissors...love it, love it.  I am obsessed with the pointing finger!
You can see a a bit of the pointing finger in this layout I did...yes, I had to do a layout, can you believe that?  Also, the number tape is here too...and maybe a little something else you might notice.  But I'll come back to that another day.  Like tomorrow.
There are two new stickers - one is letters (about time, eh?) and the other has tiny type in the center now with the word strips moved to the bottom. I believe that these are still sized the same as our old stickers, about 13" tall.
Well that is all for today...tomorrow I will have the rest of the Postale ad-on's for you.  They are so good they deserved their own post!

cheers for a good weekend!
