I was poking around in the dollar bin at Michael's a few weeks ago, and the prettiest paper pad caught my eye. It was one of the 5 x 5 pads with 10-12 sheets in it, two of each. It was a pretty blue floral, with striped and dotted coordinating sheets. It just had to come home with me, so I bought two (now I wish I had bought more)! I thought they would be good for a few cards each.
These are two cards I made with my "find" at our last card making crop:
I love this paper, and when everyone at the group saw it, they wanted it too. So we all ended up at Michael's and, of course, it was no longer there. Lesson here is - If you see it and love it, BUY it right then.....and buy more than one, or two, or even three......
It is amazing how the right papers can really make a card. There is no fancy work here, just some simple layering on both cards. Much cleaner than my usual style, but I have to admit, I am really enjoying this little reprieve now and then from my more glam it up approach to card making.
Have you had any great finds lately?
