I have to admit that I'm a sucker for scrapbook paper - and I don't even scrapbook. I love the fact that I can own a beautiful work of art for less than $1. More than once, I've been in the craft department not even looking for paper and I'll see one of those awesome fat packs of stunning sheets for $5 and I just have to own it. Needless to say, my drawer of papers has gotten pretty full.
In the spirit of using what I have, I sorted though my papers and then set out to find ways to use them in my home. After all, I wouldn't have bought them if I didn't love to look at them, so why not find some projects where I can see them all the time? The scrapbook paper wall in my studio put a big part of my collection on display while covering an ugly wall. And a few of my favorite sheets ended up framed and displayed. But I needed some new, fresh, unique ideas.
As luck would have it, I had just discovered Homtalk.com I should say discovered and then became addicted to. Great home ideas from a huge group of creative people. I did a search for "scrapbook paper" and was amazed at the projects that came up. The sunburst mirror by Setting for Four was breathtaking and the chandelier candle covers by The Pallete Muse solved my ugly yellowed candle cover problem. Before I knew it I had a full clip board of ideas for my papers. My beautiful magic papers.
So now I have a ton of ideas that I can't wait to try. I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one with a paper obsession so if you're right there with me, head on over to Hometalk.com and check out my clipboard. And while you're there, post your ideas. I love to see what everyone is creating!
