A New Line To Love: Rasberry

Send to Kindle

Well, first I have to give a shout out to SCRAP SCENE, as they yet again pointed me towards something cool…luv that place! Today they posted a TEASE about this company, who I believe is fairly new to America but well-known to Australian scrapbookers (any Aussies out there who can verify??).

Anyhow, I’m just lovin’ what I’m seein’. As much as I like the distressed, shabby chic look that has become the norm in scrapbook products these days, it’s nice to see something fresh and new. When I first started scrapping about 5 years ago, I gravitated right towards SEI who at the time was doing all those lines that started with “S”: Sporty, Savvy, etc. I still look back at those layouts and love them because they don’t look dated, just classic. Do you remember those SEI lines? All the clean lines, color blocking and bright-but-not-blaring colors? I think that’s what Rasberry reminds me of. Just cute, cute, cute! Here’s a taste, and I’m sorry, these are the biggest pics I could find (their website is a tad aggravating, but I’ll cut them a break, they’re new):

THIS is Rasberry’s website, and their BLOG, and their GALLERY. I’d love to post pics from their gallery to entice you to their products even more, but it’s all in a slide show thingey that won’t let me copy them over here (grrrr….). But go lookie over there. I promise you’ll like it! The little blond boy with the spiked hair is worth the price of admission!

Rasberry has lots of cute boy papers, embellies, and page ideas in the gallery so those of you always complaining “there’s not enough boy scrapbooking stuff,” there ya go! On their website, Sheena (the owner?) says, “I had a desperate need for paper with cars, trucks, trains and that’s how Rasberry began.” Gotta’ love a girl that takes the bull by the horns!

HERE is a link to their catalog for Winter CHA 2008. Be patient, it might take a while to load but it’s worth it! You really have to see the entire line; I have a very small part of it here. And with the bigger pictures.

Their blog says, “For our customers in the USA,…we are currently fulfilling orders out of Australia” so I really, really hope some American stores stock them. If they don’t, we’ll have to give them a big wet RASBERRY!

What do you think? Is Rasberry catching your eye at all?
