It has been a very busy Spring here at Julie Bluét! A part of the flurry of activity has been our decision to hire a Licensing Rep to handle our art licensing. We are thrilled to have signed with Artistic Designs Group lead by Julie Ager. And for us it has meant getting our work ready for Surtex in New York in May. Our Barkley & Wagz™ collection will be debuting at the show so it has been especially exciting to put it all together. Here is a sneak peek!
It is always a pleasant surprise when product samples show up on my doorstep from a new licensing deal. These are two of the new boxed thank you cards from Crown Point Graphics being sold at Christmas Tree Shops.
We just received a box full of samples from our line of over thirty greeting card designs licensed to Legacy Publishing. They always put out a first class product! Be sure to check out the details about their "Buy a Card Feed a Child" program. They are a closing in on one million meals served! Just amazing!
Here are just a few new designs you will see in our line-up this year!
We recently signed a licensing deal with Pictura USA for some darling children's greeting cards. Here is a peek at a few of the cast of characters that will be on them.
We are very excited to debut a our new fabric “Lion Safari” that is being released January 30th by David Textiles. It’s a darling cotton fabric collection perfect for that little boy’s room!
Another new licensing project that was published this year is from CR Gibson. The Pretty in Pink Girlfriends Scrapbook Complete Album Kit is a really fun way to keep track of all of the fun times with your girlfriends. We designed this beautiful kit full of lush floral designs, and it includes a 12 x 12 album with a photo pocket in the cover to personalize with your own photo, plus 20 pre-designed pages with embellishments attached, plus 10 page protectors that will hold 20 scrapbook pages, a caption sticker sheet and a 3-D embellishment sticker sheet.
This year I had the opportunity to collaborate with Ronnie Sellers Publishing to create a Mom’s Write and Remember Calendar for 2012. I am so pleased with the calendar. The calendar takes you on a whimsical trip inside the busy family. Each month features colorful and fun designs. The oversized grid has room to note appointments and schedules, and a row is provided for each family member. There's even a handy pocket to keep notes and reminders; stickers to mark carpools, doctor appointments, games and birthdays; plus a magnetic hanger. It is available through Amazon so check it out!
