Not really a fan. I like Crate Paper Bundled up and Simple Stories much better.

Cute. I would not buy the whole line, but I really like that many of the papers, when used on their own, are not Christmas-y at all.

So I will likely pick and choose some sheets that I can use on all sorts of LOs.

Sit. Stay. Pea!

I like the trees, snowmen, and the penguin paper. So cute!

I'm a sucker for snowmen. I might have to get a couple sheets of that paper.

Laura, I'm going to have to ask you to refrain from posting anymore sneaks from Bella, my wallet and marriage can't afford it.


People may not remember what you said or did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.

I love every single line Bella Blvd has revealed! I don't usually like cutesy Christmas collections, but I have a new baby, so I'm loving this line!

So cute. I'm not usually a cutesy scrapper but, for this, I can make an exception!

Sarah - Would it be bad of me to say that if your wallet suffers from my sharing these reveals, then my work is done

That was our last reveal, so hopefully your wallet and marriage will remain intact ... at least until the beginning of August, which is when products start shipping out!

Oh I just added quite a bit to my wishlist. Lots of cute things I love the snapshot line I think that is what it was called but would love a few sheets from each of your new lines and I always love your stickers and embellishments.

I love that extra large red chevron paper and the white on red snowflakes paper (or was it poinsettias?) is pretty, too. I'll probably just get those individual papers for my stash and leave the rest.

I must be super picky because to be honest, I haven't seen a single Christmas collection this year that I'm swooning over. I like bits and pieces of some but not many of those that seem to be really popular choices (Bundled Up does nothing for me, for example).

I think a lot of it has to do with the greens being used - it's my least favourite colour and the shades most companies are using are those that don't appeal to me. I'm not super thrilled about some of the colours mixed into the palettes, either - I know navy is hugely popular at the moment but I'm not liking how it's been used in Christmas lines so far, or at least, not with the particular shades of red and green with which it's been paired. And the rest of the lines are cutesy but that not really the feeling I scrap in for Christmas.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for EP's or OA's Christmas collections. I can totally get behind the bright red and turquoise used in the OA Christmas title logo and I love pretty much anything EP. Otherwise I'll probably go with the FP collection.
