I seem to be drawn to this pad of paper I got last year - It has crushed velvet like paper and beautiful stripped and dotted paper. I couldn't cut the paper - at first - but once I did - I couldn't stop making cards with it. I have made 20 cards -using 5 or 6 sheets of paper-12x12. So I still have lots more! the pad also has stickers - which I used! Many don't look like stickers - which is what I loved! This time I decided I wanted stripes and dots for the top and bottom section - and a different pattern to go over where these connect. Then I added "stuff". I really enjoyed the results. I also located the instructions for my Crop a Dile - and used it on two cards to set brads!!!!
