I have a super quick card this morning. I’ve had the new Basic Grey Porcelain patterned papers sitting on my desk all week and am just now getting the time to break them out of the packaging. Aren’t they pretty? I used one of the watercolor patterns as a backdrop for my card.
I’m loving being home during the day if just for the fact that I can take pictures of my cards in daylight! This fact prompted trying out a new way of photographing cards. And I totally love it! I get to use some of the patterned papers I have laying about as backgrounds.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve started buying paper by the collection. Meaning, I buy the whole pack of papers instead of just individual sheets. Because I’ll be working on something and inevitably I’ll want one of the other patterns. I never can predict what I’ll want to use when I’m buying the paper. It’s a curse!
So, how do you buy patterned paper? Buy the sheet, or in packs?
