I’m so excited today! Not only am I in LA to make my very first national television appearance on Hallmark Home and Family, I am also desperate to share some very exciting news from the Lia Griffith studio. You gorgeous people know how much I love paper. It’s where this all began for me, and designing and making with paper is my passion. So…… the team and I are preparing to launch our very own line of extra fine crepe papers, the like of which we haven’t seen on the US market before!
We have had such fun developing a range of high quality crepe papers made in Germany, in a color palette inspired by nature – think deep aubergine, soft blush and soothing green tea, crisp coral, dreamy chiffon and rich cranberry colors. Our aim with our new line of extra fine papers is to elevate crepe paper crafts from candy colored piñatas to elegant wedding crafts, home decor, party decorations and more! We’re on a mission to start a #CrepePaperRevival and you’re all invited. The pretty flowers pictured here were all made using our new crepe paper and I cannot wait to share video tutorials and patterns of each with you when we launch!
As well as 10 colors inspired by nature, the “Lia Griffith extra fine crepe paper” line also includes a collection of three printed metallics – perfect for creating this seasons on-trend crafts. Plus ten double-sided crepe papers, offering even more opportunity to create unique DIY projects. Finally, we have developed three stem tapes in white, gold and green which are perfect for making my signature paper flowers!
We will be launching our unique crepe paper line at the New York Stationery Show May 15th-18th (come see us at Booth #1311 if you’re there!) and the range will be available via Amazon.com from July 1. I will be sharing video tutorials and patterns for each of our brand new crepe paper flowers soon – so stay tuned and book mark our site so that you don’t miss out!
