My Creative Space: Paper Makes Me Happy!

Hello friends!
Today in my creative space is a new line of scrapbook paper that I have been waiting to get my hands on!




October Afternoon's 5 and Dime line is so beautiful, soft and vintage! I am so happy just to look at it!





Mom and I headed to a Scrapbook store called Scrapbooks Forever in Branson, MO yesterday so that I could stock up on this pretty paper.
It's also available here on Amazon.




I am having a hard time making the first cut on this paper. So many ideas and possibilities that I don't know what to make first!



What would you make?

Wishing you a happy day, Lindsey

Oh! What an adorable new line, Lindsey! I'm just going to have to try and find it--it's vintage perfection!

Thanks for your sweet comments yesterday--I saw them before Blogger made them disappear! Wasnt' that whole thing frustrating?!

Wishing you both a wonderful day!

I love the paper too, I bought it a couple of weeks ago and used some of it for my mother's day card I made.
I love finding new paper!!!

Well dang, I guess I'll be putting in and order. And I said I wasn't buying any paper supplies for a while!

Hi Ladies,

Well Lindsey I'm seeing a lot of goodies that I hope you're using on our project....hint, hint! Maybe I'll use the same stuff....okay, maybe not, but you're right it's gorgeous. I can never have enough October Morning!

Hugs,

HI!
I love it too! Someone told me about scrapbooking on HSN. I went there and they had Anna Griffen things. I think I broke the bank ordering things. They came a week ago and don't want to tap into them. They are so beautiful to just look at.
Do you use a "Cricut". My husband bought me the whole deal at Christmas because he was tired of me lamenting all the cutting I was doing by hand and also running out of that certain letter on Sunday evening when I had to get something done. Will definately return to your wonderful blog.
I am new to scrapbooking but have been crafting for more years than I can say.
Have a great day and let cut into our papers!

Hi Miss Chery,

I have a Cricut Expression. I do love it, especially for cutting letters and basic shapes. It does take some time to get used to it and all of the possibilites can be a little overwhelming but it's a great tool!

Thank you for your comment!

I love that line! Reading down the blog, what I'd do with it: I'd make a picture/collage on a canvas..that way you can hang it and enjoy it all the time..and the colors/theme is very springy-summery, so very current for decor!
