New inspiration – designer scrapbook paper…



A few months ago I bought this pack of scrapbook paper – from a friend who was having a moving sale (she couldn’t remember where she had purchased it). I couldn’t let it sit there all by itself and wonder if it would get snatched up. So, I jumped to the rescue and took it off her hands.

I should call it a “brick” of scrapbook paper – 360 sheets. It has been moved around the craft room (in order to get out of my way when crafting yet still within eye sight so I could continue to glean inspiration from it) over and over again. Until today… I cracked it open, flipped through the 360 crisp sheets of scrapbook paper and found some pattern combinations I liked. I then proceeded to turn up the funky jazz tunes (some call it “acid jazz”?!), got out the paper cutter, the adhesive, some ribbon, my water color brush… and some cardstock. And wow… hours later I emerged from the craft room starving!

As I hopped towards the kitchen I remembered I had a few slices of bacon in the fridge (wouldn’t be enough for a meal for DH and I together – yay for me!) … and I whipped up some scrambled eggs (protein helps when pushing through for a strong finish – oh wait, that’s for exercise, not time in the craft room?!)… wolfed down brunch, and continued to create.

These cards were simply part of the melee. The rest of it? Well, you’ll see it in the next couple of days.

Details, details…
Stamp set: Fun & Fast Notes
Colors: Soft Sky, Old Olive, Rose Red and Basic Gray
Other: small Niji water brush, designer scrapbook pages, Peony Nestabilities and Cuttlebug, filigree brad, small corner rounder punch and stampin’ dimensionals

  1. Phew, good thing you came along and gave that paper a good home! I'm loling because have you seen my blog entry about me being a paper hog on our trip to DC?! Paper really does inspire! These cards are full of jazzy fun. I can't wait to see more of the brick.
