WOYWW #203

OK...What is wrong with this picture? Or more importantly, what is wrong with ME???
I took the Online Card Class “Pattern Play” to learn to use pattern paper, and hopefully start using up some of my stash.  What I learned was that the papers I love and buy just aren’t the pattern style that fits with my style. So, instead of moving on…LOOK!

Last week a few of my stamp stores that I still am stupid enough to open their sale emails, had sales, on paper packs…so this is from 3 orders that just arrived. 3 of the packs are for Christmas!! (and no…we couldn’t just leave it there; we also bought a white pen, some inchie frames, the clipboard TH die…) But, I do so love that green one on the top from Prima…just sayin’.
So, that is what you see… as well as a few items that didn’t get put away from last weekend’s stamping and clean-up.  The stamp on the left, the white block, is from LaBlanche. Question…how do you store these? I don’t want to have it stacked with the wood mounted, as I’m afraid they will squash it. I also need to find a safe place for the ink palette trays, so they don’t tip.  The one on top I’ve started with the TH Distress Stains.  There is one below with the perfect pearls. 

So there is my work desk; to know the why’s and how’s, and who’s, just go visit Julia at the Stamping Ground; she will make you see Wednesday a whole new way! Have a good week everyone.


  1. I tell you - its an addiction LOL

  2. Oh pretty paper is a real addiction, and I can testify to that! Hi, my name is Krisha and I am a paperholic.......LOL
    I'm also #108 this week

  3. Ok that is real funny, you did think good things by trying to move forward, face it, it wont work you will always need new supplies, you are addicted to craft, maybe someone should start up a A2A group (Adicted To Art). I so love paper pads, good for you getting a bargin from one addict to another LOL.

    Happy WOYWW

  7. the white ones on top and then nothing will squish them..too obviously silly? I buy the wrong papers a lot..turns out, they're wrong for my card style but I can kinda make them fit my scrapbook style...because the photos make them you scrap?v

  8. Patterned paper is great, you can still alter it, or paint over bits and make it your style.

  9. I understand the paper thing. Silly Michaels had an awesome sale while I was up in IL a couple weeks ago. One day they had DCWV Paper packs for $5 Each! 7 cases were wiped out in a day and a half. Luckily (or maybe not lol) I was in the store when the first card came out. But I reserved myself to only 2 packs... one I'd had my eye on and a refill of one of my favorites. Looking forward to seeing what you create with these! Creative Blessings! Kelly #123

  10. Your paper packs look like they are really pretty ones! I'm trying to use some of my paper up, because I'm a paperholic too. No matter how much I have, I always need more!

    You have a really fun desk with all those goodies on it! Kathi #110

  11. I am also a papper addict!

    Happy WOYWW!
