Am I alone in this? I know it's probably old news but I just recently started posting here again. I used to be (and still would be) obsessed with every line that Heidi Grace Designs came out with. We actually used design elements from her Snowflake Park line in our wedding decor and I then used those papers/embellishments to create our wedding albums (3 books + 2 parent albums). It always made me so excited to walk into Archivers and see what new line she came out with. Not many of the current lines/designers give me that same crafting rush.

So yeah, just thought I'd throw this out there and see if anyone wanted to join my withdrawal support group.

I think she's still creating new lines with her company, Clever Handmade. I've seen them at J's recently. Sorry I can't link on my phone but her website is HeidiGraceKress.com.

Wasn't it around a year or so ago she was debuting her new line/company? I thought it was around CHA, and there was a lot of excitement. But that seems to have died down, and I haven't heard anything more about her.

I received a packet of embellishments by her in my stocking for Christmas, so I thought she was still selling products at Js or Ms?

OK, I just went to her website and can see that she hasn't updated anything since April 2012. So Devildog, maybe you saw her new stuff at CHA Winter 2012? I didn't even know she had new stuff out until I saw them at J's last December.

I did see the stuff come out about Clever but it never seemed to go anywhere. She had a couple lines at JoAnn but it's been a long time since there's been anything new, even at J's.

That must have been it. If she hasn't updated her blog since April, I wonder if she's still putting new stuff out?

I also remember there was some sort of legal struggles with the use of her name. I think the company that had bought her brand/name (Colorbok maybe, can't remember) filed some sort of legal document to stop her from using her own name, and this was right before she was to debut her new line.

She had great product so I hope things work out for her.

I wish I had news for you. Heidi started things up again last year in the Fall. She had some free downloads for Halloween and Christmas papers on her site. She designed some rubber stamps for my company which coordinated around the Christmas download. She was working on new lines for CHA which she did debut there. She had a few things going on right afterwards and then seems to have dissapeared. I know she was planning to do more new lines and free downloads which I was going to do the rubber stamps for.

I too miss her stuff. One of her Halloween collections was the first thing I ever bought into Archivers.

I think I bought ever collection she had out.

So funny you mention her. I have had my key card for the employee lot at work attached to a lanyard with her logo on it for over 8 years now. When I picked it up to let myself out on Friday I wondered what she's doing now. She hasn't posted on her blog in almost a year.
