Paper Phun

Oh bad me, I promised myself that I wouldn't buy more paper without using more of what I already have, but I just couldn't resist the new papers I found at Ben Franklin Crafts.  In the first photo are the delightful new ones from My Little Shoebox.  Don't you just love the Asian themed one and the forest animal one..... perfect for the fall season?  On the left side of the photo are just two of the matching double-sided die cut sheets that can be fashioned into flowers by spiraling the flower-shaped pieces.  In the front of the photo are  some of the stickers for this new line of MLS papers.  I just love the printed letter stickers!
The next set of irresistible papers are kraft paper style by Graphic 45 (one of my favorite paper companies....I'm hoping the BFC buyers will pick up more papers from this line) and Canvas Corp. I think all of these neutral sheets will work really well with the burlap ribbon, crochet lace trim, and the Tim Holtz products sold at BFC.  I plan to use the dotted and striped papers with my Halloween stuff for a vintage look.
The last photo shows the new Halloween  12x12 sheets and stickers from Imaginisce, that I really did try to resist but they were just too cute.  They are double-sided cardstock with shine on the designs (showing in the photo are the reverse side next to the front shiny side).  I just love using this type of cardstock in dies to make treat containers because the weight is just right for cutting/scoring and it's fun to see a pop of color inside the box/bag.  Well, that's it for now....gotta get crafting.  Hope you've seen some paper that inspires you.....all available at Ben Franklin Crafts right now!  Please visit this blog again to see some of my creations using these papers.

What is wrong with me/us? We continue to buy more and more beautiful papers and we have a stash that hasn't been used! But we can't pass them up because we may not see them again right Lynn? I love the G45 papers and the sturdiness of them! I got some from BFC-PC and can't use them yet! LOL! You're such an enabler, and I'm a hoarder!
