Photos! Maggies Holmes Paper Pad @ Michaels

As I posted HERE, Michaels craft stores now has the name-brand Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper 12×12 tablet. I was sure that my Mike’s wouldn’t have it because they rarely have the cool stuff I hear people talking about. But they proved me wrong!

Honestly, even if I found it I wasn’t sure I was going to buy it. I’d never seen the Maggie Holmes line in person, had only seen it online. And although I liked/loved the designs, the shade of pink used in the collection was throwing me off. It looked like a very ‘cool’ shade of pink with a touch of flourescent so . . . um . . . yeah. Wasn’t sure it was going to be my thing.

And then I saw it in person.

Yes, the pink is in fact a 'cool' pink. But that's okay. It actually looks great with the other colors and adds a fresh touch.

Here are some photos I took. Sorry, the lighting is off and I'm not sure how well you're seeing the true colors. I took them with my iPhone first thing this morning near a window. Who knew that would produce such weird results?

Anyway . . . here's a glance at all the papers:

It’s probably hard to tell from the photos, but there is VELLUM! For the following patterns:

Pink doily
Turquoise bokeh
Navy polka dots
Multi-color flowers
Handwriting
Cloudy sky

I think I found a typo on the cover. At the very bottom in tiny-tiny type, it says “6 in x 6 in”. How funny! Should that make my SCRAPBOOK TYPOS and ERRORS list even though it’s on the packaging not the product?

There are 2 each of 24 designs, either 2 papers or a paper/vellum for each pattern. The papers are a cardstock weight . . . very nice! Even the vellum is very thick. The papers are single-sided and use both white and cream for backgrounds. When I bought this on Monday 07-08, it rang up on sale . . . $11.99 instead of $19.99, no coupon necessary.

Oh, also in the first photo, you can see I got some other things at Mike’s. They had the Iris 12×12 storage cases on sale for $3 each which is an amazing price. They’re usually about $8. I got 2 but wish I would’ve gotten more. I got clear ones but they also came in pink and light green. I’m slowly switching the storage on my scrapbook room shelves from open bins to these Iris cases. It gets very dusty here and I like how the cases protect my goods :) I also love that they’re clear so you can see what project or kit is inside, even though I usually label them anyway {anal much?}

I also got the little bottle of acrylic paint for 22 cents on Clearance. It’s my favorite color these days, sort of a deep robin’s egg blue. Pretty!

So I hope you enjoyed the Maggie Holmes paper photos. Even though they aren’t the greatest quality, I’m hoping they’ll give you a good enough idea as to what this paper pad looks like . . . and whether you can save yourself a trip to Michaels – or whether you need to run someone over to get there faster!

What’s it gonna’ be, sista?

    I also noticed the 6×6 inch on the bottom of the back cover! I think you should add it to your errors and typo post. Love your blog!

    I missed this yesterday when I was at Mikes. I’ll be going back and seeing if I can find it because I do like it. So my style.
