Cricut Wednesday & Paper Hoarding & A giveaway

**I  am on a ProvoCraft/Cricut Boycott! They won’t get another dime from me!  Got a Cricut? Well use it! Don’t have one yet? Consider a different  machine!! Click here for more details about my boycott and how I got here!! You can join the boycott too!**

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I have a layout and a photo to share with you today. And at the very bottom, I have a giveaway to share with you.

I have mentioned about my paper hoarding problem multiple times, and now I finally have a photo that sums it up. . . BUT FIRST. . . I want to share my LO for Cricut Wednesday!

I am really excited about this LO because I found this awesome scallop square on the Cricut Storybook cartridge!! I used a piece of 12X12 patterned paper to make it so big. I love scallops of all sorts and this shape is just soooo good! I am particularly proud of this LO because I just love the way it turned out. My mom isn’t very excited yet about scrapbooking and when I show her my pages, she smiles and kinda gives me the “that’s nice” kind of sentiment. But with this layout, her whole face lit up, she smiled real big and said, “Aw, I love it”. If you can’t guess, both of these photos are of ME! LOL

  • TIP: Fit to page! The Fit to page function on the Cricut expression is the best fuction on the machine! If you have a piece of paper and you like the size of it, simply use the fit to page function and the Expression will cut the shape to the size of your paper! How neat is that!! For the scallop shape, I used the fit to page button with a 12X12 sheet of patterened paper.
  • All supplies except the cardstock used are American Crafts products. The cardstock is all Stampin’ UP brand.

And now for a photo. Siobhan.. . . I deserve the Paper Ho title :O)

Click to see a larger photo:
The containers for the 12X12 paper (1st and 3rd rows) were made out of priority mail boxes. You can see some of them are not covered. I made the ones on top without measuring so they are uneven. I plan on redoing them so they all are the same like on the 3rd row.

On the top row, I have my 12X12 cardstock and some patterned paper.

On the second row, I used cardboard magazine holders that Staples sells. I just covered the front of them with Pink cardstock and labels. That row contains all my Stampin’ UP 8.5X11 cardstock.

On the third row, I have a stash of scrapbook kit leftovers and 12X12 chipboard shapes in plastic keepers on the far left and then it is patterened paper galore!

Now, for a giveaway!  **Giveaway Closed!!**
Want some cardstock??? See those bottom two rows of cardstock(some of it is actually raw chipboard, but I am talking about everything else on those two rows)? I want to GET RID OF ALL OF IT!!!

Please help me! Send me an email to scrapmastersparadise@yahoo.com and give me your paper order!

I only ask is that you pay the actual shipping cost so I don’t break the bank giving things away LOL.

This is non Stampin’ UP cardstock, but it is still great cardstock, 65lb cardstock, acid/lignin/chlorine free. I just have WAY too much of it.

I have a bunch of each of these colors:

  • medium green
  • medium blue
  • light blue
  • medium brown – SOLD!!
  • purple
  • burgundy
  • white (textured, it looks like old paper, but it isn’t your normal looking textured paper)
  • Mango (the color I would use for Disney’s Pluto the dog)

I have a little of the following colors:

  • Beige
  • Yellow – SOLD!!!
  • Red (Christmas colored red) – SOLD!!!
  • Pastel Purple
  • Pastel Pink – SOLD!!!

Please help me get rid of it!

  1. LOL You are a paper HO! 😉 Great idea you have! I just got rid of a stack about 2 inches thick of old DSP’s. I am going to try to sell somemore at a Crafting gargage sale in Oct. What I don’t sell will become property of my kids’ school!

    I love that LO as well! Thanks for the tip on the scallop for 12 x 12 paper! I am going to use that!

  2. I LOVE your LO!!! I also really like the way you store your CS! I have a filing cabinet slam full of SU cardstock, and I like that, too, but yours is a great storage option as well! I am sure you will have no problem getting rid of the paper you don’t want!
