We are excited to introduce you to the new Bitty Big line of basic patterned papers. We heard our customers loud and clear and you love to have the basics on hand, but you don't want to spend a lot of money to invest in all the colors. These collections will be offered in single color packages, with a few new colors being introduced each month. Each package will contain 3 patterns, stripes, dotes and gingham. The three patterns are printed double sided, with one side featuring a small version of the pattern and the other side featuring large scale. So you get two options for your designs with less sheets to invest in!

  • Each collection includes 24 sheets (8 sheets of each double-sided pattern). 
  • Each sheet features the bitty version of the pattern on one side, and the reverse features the big version.
  • Printed on smooth 8-1/2" x 11" text weight paper.
  • The collections will be available in Spring Rain, Scarlet Jewel and Dark Indigo on October 15th.




Brushed lettering is all the rage and now you can bring that look to all of your holiday paper crafting. Whether it be cards, tags, gift wrap or anything else you dream up, you will love all the possibilities and themes this special holiday edition of this collection provides.

***NOTE: Unfortunately, due to some manufacturing delays this set did not arrive in time for us to create samples for today. It will however be available for sale on release night. We will be featuring projects using the set next week, so you can have something to look forward to!

I am head over heels in love with this project! The woodsy almost masculine feel to it is such a great look. The Christmas tree on top of the old woody is so festive and cheerful. One of the nice touches Melissa added was the ink blending on the trees to give them a bit of shadowing.
