Officially being a paper scrapper again after such a long hiatus, I'm mourning the loss of a few of my favorite products that have been discontinued or have gone under... most specifically Scenic Route Paper Co. We were besties. I'm so ridiculously tempted to hit up ebay for every single remaining scrap I can find... there's some, I've already looked I'm now hoarding what little of it I have left.

So spill it... which of your favorite things have died off? And what would you consider trading a limb to have back?

You know I used to have companies that I felt this way about.... and then after shopping and hoarding and shopping and hoarding and shopping some more - I have found that many of the designers and such are still in the industry and so you can find similar styles from new/different companies... For example, I would have said the Hambly Screen Prints - now they are sold by Webster Pages as the designer, Alison Kreft works for them now..... with some digging you may be able to find out where the digital artists that designed the papers went...

I miss Scenic Route too. I have a tiny scrap of one of their sheets left that I won't use or throw out. It's too pretty!

I actually have a ton of Scenic Route AND Old BG that I have hoarded-especially the BG 'card stock." I am so there with you though, Jen. I hate when my favorites go out of business.

So I did a quick google Search.

Layle Koncar was one of the graphics designers it appears. Additionally, the previous owner Sarah Milne was a graphics designer for the company. I know that Lyle Koncar is still in the industry - she was picked up by oddly enough Basic Grey. She is currently working with Simple Stories. You can find her personal blog http://laylekoncar.typepad.com/

Sarah Milne currently designs for Crate Paper, American Crafts, and Pebbles. You can find her here

I know there are several lines of paper that have retired that I really liked back then, but at this moment I can't think of any that I'm missing. Guess it never bothered me enough to miss because there are a lot of others out there that I really like!!!
