I almost can't choose my favorite paper group. I love the Varsity, the Vintage cream & black and the Victorian. But if I have to pick just one, I guess it would be Varsity. These papers are beautiful. Jeanne

Emilia said...

The paper is beautiful, my favorite is Tangerine Dream

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

It's so hard to choose which is my favorite I really like the new Sweet peas set. I also really like the new Timeless Quotes. Don't even get me started on the Jenni Bowlin papers...WOW!!!

Linda Crowder said...

sorry I couldn't make the release party. I bet everyone had a good time. I love these papers! They are elegant and so versatile. As far as the favorite thing you have released has to be the Sweet Pea stamps but these papers run a close second. I hope to be ordering both if I don't win. Have to save up, you know!

Janice RR said...

The Victorian paper is "to die for" . . . and I love the "faith" quote from the new stamp set!!

Cheri Howard said...

I love the Varsity papers (well, all of them, really!)

K said...

Lovely new papers, I love the Tangerine dream and Victorian best of all. It's too difficult to pick just one :)
I'm a bit disappointed I didn't win the ornamental elements (kidding!), but those are my favourite from these additions!

kathleen said...

The Timeless Quotes is a must have. Too often it hard to know what to say to someone. These will be perfect.
Also a big wooo hooo to the new papers, I need them all, lol.

MarikaGabez said...

Wow......georgous paper!

Difficult to decide what my best.
Maybe ....Tangerine Dream or.....

Greetings from Slovenia.

Ravengirl said...

Wow, those papers are fabulous! Which new addition is my favorite, as far as the paper, Vintage Red. As far as the new sets, I really love the Ornamental Elements! thanks for the chance to win!

It's hard to say which paper I like best - probably Victorian

Jill Haddad said...

How can you possibly expect me to pick a favorite! The new papers are gorgeous (my favorite of these is the Victorian papers) and then there are the new stamp sets - Sweet Pea is so elegant and old fashioned and Timeless Quotes is beautifully written. How can I decide on just one?

Vickie in AZ said...

All of these new Jenni Bowlin papers are fabulous! If I had to pick one set to start with, it would be Vintage Red. It's fun and nostalgic, and reminds me of my childhood in a 1940's kitchen.

I love these new papers! They are wonderful. I am imagining all the cards I can make with the lucious papers. What fun! Thanks for sharing them with us! Cathy

Rosemary D said...

I had seen bits and pieces of the Jenni Bowlin lines, but never all the papers. They are fantastic! I really like the Vintage Black & Cream! Looking foward to seeing the new sentiments set.

Cook22 said...

I think my favourite has to be the Sweet Peas. I know some people say *not more flowers* when another flower set comes out, but I don't think you can ever have too many - especially when they are real flowers and not just generic floral.

Rosie said...

OMG the vintage red is amazing... I want it right now!!! And my other favorite is the sweet pea set you just released!

Velta said...

WOW! The papers are beautiful...I love the Victorian best, but I have ideas flowing through my head for each set of papers. The Sweet Pea Set is too a favorite of mine...thinking of all the colors you could use with this set...every time you use this it would look totally different...I need to stop and shop :)

Kay said...

I can't choose a favorite paper group; I want them all!!! I can't wait for the release party tonight. I should have taken the day off work in commemoration.

Marilyn Hitterman said...

These papers are so pretty! IF I had to choose I'd pick 2 favorites: Vintage Red & Vintage Cream & Black. But I'd be happy with any one of them! Thanks for the chance to win.....

KanataNewf said...

I would have to say the Ornamental elements stamp set is my favourite in this new release. And these papers are phenomenal!

Nancy said...

Love the sneaks of the sentiments set! Those papers are just gorgeous! Going to have to get some of those...the Victorian and Vintage Cream and Black are now on my wish list.

Sarah said...

Vintage Red definitely! However they are ALL gorgeous.

JMK said...

Jenn Ashley said...

I love the Farmers Wife set of paper. It reminds me when I was a child living on a farm. I wish my children (six of them) could have that experience... my oldest tells me she feels like she lives in a zoo which is pretty close. Take me back to the cool breezes and the fun.

Anonymous said...
