Sneak Peek #5 PAPERS!!!

Good Eve,
Sandy here popping in quickly to post hopefully the last sneak peek. We've been working hard on the website throughout the whole day, and so far it's looking good, so I do believe we can stick to the deadline and open the virtual doors Monday morning. However; I've worked long enough in the IT Industry to know that things can still go wrong at the last minute, so I'm not taking anything for granted here... I'll give you a final update tomorrow evening.

I should maybe have mentioned this earlier, but I like to Save the Best for Last...
Yup; you all know what I'm talking about; PAPERS!!!

I do confess; I am addicted to paper, but then again I'm not looking for a cure...
Papers were actually the very reason I decided to establish Live & Love Crafts in the first place. I've been using Maja Design's beautiful scrapbooking papers for several years now, and used to get asked all the time where one can buy them.  

Live & Love Crafts will be stocking the following Maja Design Collections (12x12):

As we all know, Maja Design is not the only Swedish company blessing us with stunningly beautiful vintage inspired scrapbooking there's also Pion Design.
Pion Design has a very special place in my heart; every time I use the gorgeous papers from Pion I get to think about home as Pion is located only 80 km (50 miles) from where I was born and grew up, the land of the Midnight Sun (Norrland/North Sweden).

Live & Love Crafts is stocking Pion Design's papers both in 6x6 and 12x12 size.

...and we also have the just released "Grandma's School Book" in stock:

Furthermore; we're also stocking some of Pion's beautiful papers with vintage images from the "Grandma's Attic" Collection. Very soon on this blog, you'll able to admire gorgeous cards like this one, made by our versatile DT member Tina.

Card made with Pion Design's "Forget Me Not" (vintage image not from Pion).

But there's even more; as the only store in the UK, Live & Love Crafts will be stocking papers from Riddersholm Design, a Danish producer of vintage scrapbooking papers. You'll only need to take one look at the papers from the Chantilly Dawn Collection and you'll be in looooooooove!

We also have Ridderholm's latest stunning collections "Fleamarket" and "Huntington Garden" in stock.

To see loads of inspiring paper projects, please visit the vendor's blogs:

Now I better get back to work...
Hugz, Sandy


  1. Hi I've been tuning into your posts getting more and more excited at all the scrummy products that are going to be on offer. I so love the vintage style but it is not something that I find easy to put together and to know that I can have everything I would need at a touch of a button really appeals to me, so thank you and I will be there waiting with baited breath on Monday morning. I hope it all goes smoothly, take care Ann-Marie.
