We're kicking it into high gear for CHA here at Paper House - putting the finishing touches on our booth, getting all the fantastic display projects together, and getting our show pallet wrapped up. But the one thing that makes this CHA super special is all the brand new product we've made for it!

We're so excited to share with you one of our newest embellishment lines - Cork'd™. These great new stickers are a fresh new take on the raw look, combining vibrant full-color printing topped on to real cork shapes. Not only do they add dimension and texture to any project, Cork'd stickers make it easy to bring natural beauty to scrapbooking, crafting and cardmaking.

CHA Sneak Peeks - Paper House - Cork'd™

Each sticker sheet has approximately 10 pieces of diecut cork in a variety of shapes, from thematic icons, to arrows & stars, to banners and words. The themes and sentiments are open enough to be used on just about any project, but they coordinate perfectly with so many of your favorite Paper House collections, too!

All of the pieces are fully self-adhesive, making them really easy to just pull off the backer sheet and press down to your project! And the tiny shaped pieces are just adorable!
