Perfect Match May Release Details

By May 13, 2008General

As you have seen in some of the samples the past few days, Lavender Moon will be the new color released from Papertrey Ink in May.  We have received many requests for a few basics to be added to our line up in addition to our colors, so rather than introduce a second color, we have brought you Kraft cardstock in our signature 110lb. weight!

Lavender Moon was inspired by this bedding ensemble I saw in a catalog.  I thought that the color scheme was so trendy and beautiful together.  I decided upon the lighter purple/pink color that was used as one of the accent colors in the pattern on the bed spread.  I thought it would look so wonderful with some of the other colors currently in our collection. 

We always receive hundreds of emails asking if a particular color we are introducing can be compared with something from SU!  I have put together swatches of our Lavender Moon and SU!’s Pale Plum so you can get a better idea of how they compare.

The Kraft cardstock is beautiful and was picked out by our resident Kraft Expert Extraordinare, Heather Nichols.  We think you will love pairing it with our current & future colors as a beautiful neutral!  It will be sold at the same price and quantities of our colored cardstock, twelve (8.5 x 11) sheets @ $3 or  twenty-four (8.5 x 11) sheets @ $5.

I hope you enjoy the new products we are introducing to you this month!!!

    I love this lavender color and am so excited you’re adding kraft to the line. I have been meaning to get some to use and love that I can now get it in your 110 lb weight! Will the stitched be in stock on release night? I just noticed it isn’t in your photo.

    Yeah, I am so excited about purple. It will be fun to play with. I love purple.
    I did notice that you didn’t have any stitched ribbon. Is there going to be some or is that being left out of the purple selection?

    Love the purple. Im a little disappointed there are not two coordinating colors. I guess we’re spoiled for the last three months. But I am excited about Kraft. I can’t wait to see the paper IRL.
    Take care.

    Yeah – love Kraft, gotta add it to my list! I am soooooo excited about that because I love the weight of your cardstock and have a hard time finding Kraft that heavy – YIPPEE!!!!!! And I for one and glad there aren’t two colors because that gives me a chance to catch up on some old ones that I missed!

    The purple shade is gorgeous…once again i can see that the quality will be above all the rest! LOL I second that motion-I still have $100 in my cart that I was unable to purchase from LAST month!!! So, one color/ribbon scheme will hopefully help me catch up! Can’t wait for the release party!

    The lavendar moon color is gorgeous and I have Kraft cs on my wishlist. I am wondering though if the cs is lignin free before I determine quanities and size that I want to order……whether to just use it for cardmaking or can I use it with my scrapbooks as well?
