As you all know I'm a big fan of buying paper in bulk. I'm also a big fan of buying with a friend. On the weekend my DH, DD, DS and I went to visit DH's brother, his wife and their two DS's. My brother-in-law had just come back from a business trip to the states. (They've all just moved back here after several years living in the states.) Anyway while he was over there my sister-in-law sent him shopping for paper at costco. What a good hubbie!
I must say I'm really jealous of the bulk paper packs available to americal scrappers. All the papers were gorgeous. I've purchased a sheet of every type at $0.30c a sheet off my sister-in-law. Not bad! (The photos above are just a selection of my favourites. I actually bought 35 sheets) lol!
I can't wait to get in and start using them. It's the sort of paper that just begs for some tearing!
Even though I haven't found any packs of the same quality and such unusual effects here there are still some great budget savers. I have found that most of the bulk paper packs repeat the same paper several times so this is why it's best to share with a friend. That way you're not trying to use six sheets of the one patterned paper.

...." I don't have a CLUE about what to do next...an embellishment? Journaling? Arghhhh!" That's the little voice in your head by the way - lol. ...and don't worry - you're not alone. We've all got one. Without a doubt, the toughest part of scrapbooking is coming up with new ideas .... ...And when the ideas dry up, so does the motivation... ...But don't let a lack of ideas stop you from PRESERVING your memories.... ...Because behind each photo, there's a STORY... ...A story that needs to be told... ...So people aren't forgotten and those special occasions will always be REMEMBERED ... ...So if you get stuck for new ideas, I want to help re-ignite your creative spark, so you can: • Make SERIOUS progress on that pile of photos you've been meaning to turn into pages.... • Get more CREATIVE than ever before...and produce layouts that looks like art. ... • Create pag
Scrapbooking is a wonderful hobby! Besides being relaxing and fun, it also allows you to be creative and to spend quality time with your family and friends. Plus, it results in a storybook of lifelong memories. One very important element of scrapbooking is getting it all organized. This includes, but is not limited to: storing all of your supplies in an organized fashion so they can be found instantly when you need them. remembering what supplies to pick up at the store, and eliminating duplicate purchases. finding time to research new and creative ways to spruce up your scrapbooks. finding enough time to enjoy the art of scrapbooking in your busy life. TELL A STORY. Plan your photos, before you shoot. Instead of taking random shots of someone standing here, or someone else sitting there, tell a story. For example, let's say it's Halloween. You may plan on taking four photos of your child: on the hayride taking him/her to the pumpkin field.
