I don’t think I can remember all the products I like from this release.

I will try. Arches, pandas, bamboo, arches folder, abstract stencils, ocean based embossing folders, dies, etc, cranes, dragonflies, wicker folder, Ithink there is more but it’s too many too remember. Vertical words!

There’s a couple things on clearance I want to get before they are gone, so I have to wait on newer stuff for a bit. I absolutely love so much of this release

CHowell March 3, 2023 - 4:54 AM

Awesome release, hard to pick just 1 favorite. Anything with flowers is a go for me though

Tina Kahles March 3, 2023 - 5:47 AM

Wow these new releases are Awesome, so many new ideas makes it so much fun to play with new items!

Jennifer K March 3, 2023 - 7:59 AM

The crane and pandas really caught my eye- love anything with animals!

Lori Spitzer March 3, 2023 - 8:48 AM

I’m nuts about the Sakura set… and I love pandas, so that set is also of great interest to me. The Leaf Essentials and the Dragonflies are also begging to jump into the cart. I love dragonflies as a design motif. I am also intrigued by the Zero-Waste Pattern Die – awesome!

Lovely release! re “Which product/s caught your eye?

Julie Sweet March 4, 2023 - 6:35 AM

The Zen Garden is a lovely combination of wonderful inspirational pieces! The arches and the florals make a wonderful contrast of visual texture while lending a vibe of tranquility. I also like the pandas- my son loved pandas as a child.
