Jolee is in the House!

Today we received our line of paper arts from EK Success! When we started this project, over a year ago, I never imagined that we would be able to create a line of vintage inspired papers and embellishments that actually captured the French General look so well. I love the 12x12 papers - they are all prints from our antique collection of fabric - some making repeat performances from our quilting collection with Moda. There is even a pack of adhesive fabric sheets that can be cut and stuck down to projects - just be sure you use paper cutting scissors and cut before you peel! The embellishments have the look and feel of vintage pieces - but yet are very useable for paper and sewing projects. And the labels and tags all feel as if they were dug out of an old warehouse - almost as if they were original bits and pieces! We will carry the line in the shop and on line - but you will also be able to find it at your favorite craft and scrapbook shop and Michaels! Have fun creating and we would love to see photos of any projects you do - please post on our Art of Craft site. Merci!

Congrats Kaari - it looks wonderful! I'm so glad you will carry the line - the nearest Michael's is a few hours away and in Canada, we don't always get everything.

Dang-A-Lang, French General is available for all, and that is a very fine, and large happening, Well Done!

The products are simply gorgeous! I used some of the goodies I won in the giveaway to create an art journal. I even used the packaging! I will post the results on the Art of Craft site. I'm already working on the next project, and stalking my local Michael's for more French General. Thanks again for my prize package, and congratulations on your new beautiful new line of products!

I will be at French General first thing Monday morning to pick up my supply of paper goods! I have been stalking my Michael's and haven't found anything yet. Would you consider posting a list of stores that might be carrying your products?
Thank you!!!

Yay!!! Do you know when they will arrive at Micheal's? I only get there about once a month, but I'd make a special trip to get some of these!! If I can't get them somewhere, I'll find them somewhere! I'm really excited to get them into my craft area!!!

Congratulations, Kaari! I really can't tell the new from the original old pieces that you've found over the years in France.....I might just frame the packages!!! Mom

This collection is simply gorgeous! I've been collecting vintage ephemera for a long time, and these products have such an authentic feel. I just posted the Art Journal I made using some of the papers, stickers, and fabric sheets at The Art of Craft. I can't wait to play with more of these lovely goodies!

Just ordered your line from French General because none of the Michael's in my area have received it yet and I could not wait any longer!
