New Fancy Pants, Crate Paper, Heidi Swapp, and More at Hobby Lobby!

I made a quick stop in at my local Hobby Lobby last week and was surprised to see that they'd stocked lots of new paper pads, many of them new-ish releases from Winter CHA! I pulled out my iPhone to take photos of the new goods- hopefully these will be arriving at your local Hobby Lobby stores soon, too!

First up are some new 12x12 paper packs from Fancy Pants. My store had both the Trend Setter and Swagger collections in 48 sheet packs- 2 each of 24 single-sided designs.


My Mind's Eye has several new paper pads on Hobby Lobby shelves, including the two colorways from Lost & Found 3- Ruby and Oliver. Both of these paper pads have the same glitter accents found in the original release of the collection.



Also present in glittered form was Lost & Found Christmas and Teresa Collins' Haunted Hallows line. Since Teresa Collins' products are now being distributed by My Mind's Eye, it was no surprise to find this Halloween collection sitting on the shelf in a similar format to the Lost & Found pads.


Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic line has been available in paper pad format for a while at Michaels, and now it's shown up at Hobby Lobby, too, along with the No Limits collection (both CHA Winter 2012 releases) and the CHA Winter 2013 Serendipity line.



There's new Crate Paper at Hobby Lobby, too! DIY Shop, Party Day, and the first Maggie Holmes collection are all represented, again in single-sided format.



The Best of Basic Grey pad was announced at CHA Summer 2013, and it looks like it's already been picked up by at least one big box retailer. Since these papers are reprints of patterns from older lines, I'm not surprised that it's already hit what is usually a second-line market for new releases. These papers are double-sided.


It's no secret that Project Life has arrived at Hobby Lobby- there's an entire section of shelving dedicated to the core kits and plastics already- but they also had the paper pad from the Midnight collection hiding out on the patterned paper aisle. These papers are again single-sided.


I mentioned the Project Life aisle, and there are some new additions to it, as well! It's been turned into an area for all things divided page protector related, and a few We R Memory Keepers Albums Made Easy collections are now included among the Simple Stories and Project Life merchandise. Hobby Lobby also has the 3x4 punches by We R Memory Keepers in stock, including both the rounded and non-rounded corner varieties.



There are several new additions to the 6x6 paper pad section of the store, too, including a pad of washi tape sheets by We R Memory Keepers.


A lone colorway from My Mind's Eye's Collectable line was sitting on a shelf in my store, right next to new pads from CHA Winter 2013 Glitz collections.



Authentique has a couple of new 6x6 pads at Hobby Lobby, each of which mixes several lines into new "Seasons" and "Essentials" collections.


New Simple Stories and Fancy Pants paper pads round out the photos I took on this little tour, and all of these lines were CHA Winter 2013 releases.



Hobby Lobby certainly is giving us plenty of new items to use those 40% off coupons on, aren't they?
