NEW PaperArtsy {2014} Products: JOFY Collection

Hello everyone, Leandra here, and introducing the second reveal in the lead up to our trade show that starts this coming Sunday.

The Jo Firth-Young Collection was created when Jo started sketching while on holiday in Mexico 2 years ago, lucky for us she been back again to Mexico recently, and another bunch of gorgeous stamps ensued! 

{NEW} JOFY Stamp Sets
I'm sure you would love to see them! Jo has been wanting to add an alphabet to her stamps for some time, so here it is, and number that can be used as a background, or individually, altogether there are another 4 A5 stamp sets.



{NEW} JOFY Minis
Jo's minis are so useful, be they for backgrounds, or an image perfect for a quick card. Here are the next 8 new ones, and yes, the birds from JOFY15 fit in the birdcage.




{NEW} Limited Edition Paint Packs
But of course it doesn't stop there, Jo has created 4 fabulous new colours of paint: Chalk, Amethyst, Dolly Mix (actually this is a returned colour that Jo campaigned for) and Dusty Teal. All of these colours are opaque, and lots of samples follow below using them!

 {NEW} JOFY Stencils
The way our designers have been using these is stunning from what I have seen so far! They deliciously add another useful design element to your JOFY projects either softly in the background, or perhaps you will go all out, tint some GP and add a feature statement word. I think these are going to be must-have for those of you who are JOFY fans.



So lets take a look at what Jo Firth-Young herself has been up to with these little beauties.

Keren Baker is  quite into her scrapbooking, and I adore her clean and simple style, so I was thrilled when she agreed to make some samples for this new stamp release. Even though paint is not Keren's first choice for colouring, she has done a wonderful job with them. (I think she might be hooked!) Brilliantly minimalist, and great composition.

Sue Carrington tends to do classic vintage, but she also rocks the JOFY style too. We love what she has done with these new stamps. A gorgeous floral oasis, and GP tinted stencil words, loving the washed out stencil in the BG too.
