PaperArtsy Sneak Peek {Hot Picks} with Leandra Franich

Hot Picks from Mark Franich

Hi PaperArtsy People! 

Let's take a quick break from the new product announcements. It's been a whirlwind!

We have just finished the first tradeshow of 2019 in Phoenix, (This time of year we have 3 in 5 weeks, a bit bonkers I know!) So Mark and I are on our way to Frankfurt, for an even bigger tradeshow called Creativeworld! No rest for the wicked! But it is like Christmas all over !

We have 1 more product announcement tomorrow for January (JoFY), and another cycle  with new things from Kay, Courtney, Alison and ZinskiArt starting mid February, but before then we will squeeze in a NEw Year Topic.

So I thought i'd take a moment today to give you a sneak peek of some new Hot Picks Mark has designed coming your way in March! Yes the goodness is going to keep on coming, I promise! 

I do love a Hot Pick, and with these I created a painted BG, and then stamped in Black Versafine Clair and embossed in clear detail EP whihc creates a wonderful resist for Infusions colouring! Oh so simple, and more to follow from me with these stamps in March!

As you can see, we are not giving much away yet, but all will be revealed on March 21st so make sure you are following PaperArtsy on all our socials as listed below. 

Retailers, please expect a slight delay as we are on a skeleton staff at HQ while they try to deal with Creativation orders, but we did leave them fully stocked up a week ago, so we expect to cope really well with demand this year!

In January and February, PaperArtsy are exhibiting all 2019 new products at the following Tradeshows which are restricted access events for retailers, manufacturers, and suppliers. There will be plenty of activity online from our product designers who are all teaching classes for stockists at the events listed below. Make sure to follow us all and stay in touch when we do live broadcasts!

Creativeworld: Messe, Frankfurt, Germany (see here) Jan 26-29, 2019
There is no facility to offer classes at Frankfurt, but Leandra, Jo Firth-Young and Sara Naumann will be demoing on the booth, and on hand to answer all your questions about our new releases.
