Hello, my name is Pat and I am a Paper-holic!! After rifling though the box and tossing out "unusable" paper (which is an oxymoron if I ever used one), I placed this box on my craft table and made an oath to create from this box ONLY until I can see a sizable difference. I've made three cards so far, and there is no measurable difference. So I will not be purchasing new paper for a long, long (very long) time. Sigh!
Meanwhile, this is one of the cards I created. I colored up a cute digi image called Patsie from Art by Miran. I adore her images, and this is an older one from her shop. I used sparkly colored cardstock as well as patterned paper from "the box." I found a small paper doily and used my homemade shimmer mist to coordinate the color with the rest of my card. Besides a strip of ribbon and a bow, I scattered jeweled flowers and butterflies on my card. She looks like the kind of girl who wishes to be surrounded by glitz and diamonds, don't you think?!
