I've got a favor to ask everyone....

If any of you like coaster projects as much as I do then you might want to be apart of this. A Canadian company called Canadacoaster is thinking of expanding their scrapbooking line to more shapes, sizes and maybe even colors. I was enquiring about the rectangle shape that EclecticPaperie has in their store. The link will take you right there to see what I am speaking of.
Now CanadaCoaster has had some inquiries of this shape and I got a chance to speak with someone about it. At the this time they only have two typical shapes: 4x4 and the 4" circle. He asked me if I could give him some idea as to what scrapbookers and cardmakers alike would be looking for. I was more than happy to help with that because the rectangle shape is becoming more and more popular. The person who I spoke with was quite interested in what were looking for so let's give them some answers :)

Now here is what I'm going to ask of you. Post a comment of what shapes or sizes even colors you would like to get your hands on. Let everyone know I've this post up and get them to comment on what they'd like to see.

Wouldn't it be nice to have shapes that would work well with the spellbinders dies! Like the Octagon...or the Large Oval...oooo-what about the new rectangle shapes they just recently came out with...

Personally I would like to have the option of larger size coaster for larger projects like a 6x6 calendar, clipboard, scrapbook album, picture frames...there is so much more...(Big Sigh)

My favorite sizes would have to be:
6x6 Circle and square
5x5 Circle and Square
4.5x9 (like the Stampin' Up clipboard size)
I would love an oval shape for sure :)

So Please post your ideas and comments as many as you like and hopefully I'll have enough info compiled that I can send off an email to them for them to consider. This is a great opportunity for Stampin' Up Demos, Scrapbook instructors, even those who hold card, stamping, and scrapbook clubs. So EVERYONE PLEASE COMMENT :)

I will be posting some new pics tomorrow so don't forget to check back!
Happy Stampin'

I think I would take a good look at the dies too. I used some coasters I got from a share forevah ago...I used my scallop square (the second largest one I had on hand) and it worked like a dream. Keep us SIL loves to make mini-albums so I know we would both be interested! Cheers!

That's great news! I have purchased from Canada Coaster before and they rock! I know my customers and I would LOVE 6x6 square for sure and a rectangle would be great! the 4 1/2 x 9 is a great size too.

thanks so much for getting in contact with them.
