I love how some things become such a trademark and these paper lamps covered in Hambly transparencies? They are a total tradeshow trademark now. Hambly always have a small but perfect booth and as soon as I can see the lamps, I know there is good stuff to be found.

You need to know that Hambly also have awesome customer service and because they are small, they have this small team that talks to people so personally and they are just extra welcoming. So I walk up and they say ‘Stop right there: we know where we have to start. Let me show you this…’ and that ‘this’?

Be still my heart.

I may have told them if I have to give up clothes and start dressing as a mummy, I want to be a mummy clad in camera-printed washi tape. True story. (Obviously I’m talking Egyptian wrapped-in-bandages mummy. Not British mother of small children mummy. I don’t think they generally change their clothing habits that dramatically.)

So yes, let’s focus. There’s new washi tape and that collection includes a camera print, and also a larger size with labels, perfect for adding right to a photo or for attaching an overlay to your layout. Nice.

Some pretty-pretty pages from the Hambly design team.

Brand new mini overlay sheets, perfect for adding transparent layers to divided page protectors. Love these, and will be stalking the new products at Two Peas for their arrival day as I’m sure they will be gone in no time. May have learned that one by experience.

The mini overlays also include labels. Cut apart then attach to your project with tape, staples, stitches, brads or clear adhesives like spray glue or a Xyron machine. (Or if you’re adding more layers, use your regular adhesive and just hide it with something else on top.)

Six new patterned papers in a different look for Hambly – two with very colourful prints and four with just one main colour, including a chevron for good measure.

And these look very fun indeed – mistable papers with a resist pattern – in clouds and hexagon prints (and a couple other patterns). Just add mist or ink over the top and the pattern will stay white but you can customise the background colour.

Which means even if you want to make the sky behind those clouds blue, you can do so with your own amount of colour and shading, and create pretty faded looks like this example with blue at the top but the pale paper at the bottom.

Eeep: do you see what I see? Map print overlays? Indeed!

CHA Winter 2012 :: Hambly Screenprints
In fact lots of things that are relatively travel-themed. Clouds…

…what I’m convinced looks like the graph paper they use with a seismometer? I could be way off here, but it’s fancy graph paper. Let’s go with that.

And non-travel things too, like two different chevrons and a hexagon design.

CHA Winter 2012 :: Hambly Screenprints
Diagonal stripes and herribone – all four of those will be really easy to use for plenty of themes.

And the map!

So do excuse me if you see someone dressed as a mummy in camera-printed washi tape holding a see-through map trying to find her way around town. Sadly there is just something about the unique products that Hambly creates that causes me to go a little less than normal.

In more acceptable terms, let’s hope we can get these products and use them on craft projects. Screen-prints are made to order so the shipping times will vary, but look for these to start hitting stores in late March.

  16. Carolyn E Says:

    Everything looks so versatile! Might have to finally try Hambly!

  17. KateT Says:

    Lol, as a mummy and collector of Washi tape, I thought for a minute I had been using it wrongly!! I have been off Hambly of late, the last thing I bought had owls on and is untouched in my paper box, but some of these designs look like they would fit much better with my current supplies.

  18. SusanB Says:

    Love the washi tape and the map print overlays. Adding them to my wishlist…

  19. LisaE Says:

    Love that cloud paper. Clearly I’m going to have to try some of the new Washi tapes, too.

  20. Kelly Says:

    Be still my heart. Chevron and all the other transparencies, camera printed Washi tape. Yes, please.

  21. Kristin Says:

    I really like some of the hexagon patterns and those maps…love, love, love. and…more hot air balloons. They are just all over right now, aren’t they?

  22. Debby B. Says:

    For me it is the aeroplanes – gotta love ‘em. Having been to a large number of air displays in my life, which I love, I have stacks of photographs. Aah, the thrum of old warplane engines and the whine of newer jet engines. Plus helicopters and gliders if you get real lucky. Bliss. Can see myself using these plane papers and overlays. Plus the hot air balloons. Cool.

  23. abbeyviolet Says:

    I do really like the hambly pieces. I find that I end up just getting one or two here or there, but am always pleased and have used them in a variety of ways.

  24. Kathy R Says:

    Hambly makes such beautiful things. I’ve never actually had my hot little hands on any of them, but I sure would love to have some one of these days! I admit that I am a bit intimidated by transparencies and overlays- so pretty and yet I am just stumped how to use them…but they are just soooo pretty!

  28. Marian Says:

    Love the camera washi tape and the chevron overlays.

  29. ruth tacoma Says:

    Oh my. And PURPLE camera printed washi tape. Love it. I must start buying more Hambly products. I don’t know how I’ve stayed ignorant of their awesomeness for this long…

  37. Angela Hathikhanavala Says:

    How is it that even when everything Hambly does fits right in with current trends, it still looks like they’re totally doing their own thing? Genius, I tell you.
    Most excited for those tapes!!

  38. jodpea Says:

    I’ve heard u mention this brand a few times (or should that be read?)but I’ve never spotted their goodies for sale in the shops I frequent. I love the idea of the resist patterned paper, talk about customisation! I think a washi tape mummy outfit would catch on fast!

  39. Lucy Says:

    Wow! I’ve never bought anything from Hambly that I know of, but this range? There’s so much jumping out at me! Especially the Washi tape… I want!

  40. Maja Says:

    I am in love with Hambly! ;)
