Best patterned paper ever + a giveaway

Hey folks!

So if you saw my recent Verve release post, you might have seen I talked about finding an amazing patterned paper pad. Here to show it to you today!

Its the On Trend paper pad by My Mind’s Eye. I found it while browsing my local craft store and fell in love with it. I’m definitely not a patterned paper gal so this was huge for me!

Counting the card for the Verve release and the 4 (yes 4!) cards I’m showing you today, I made 5 so far. I have this pad on my desk right now so I’m sure to use it till its all gone!

Let me show you the cards 2 at a time since thats how I used other materials on it. For the first 2 cards today I used the Memory Box Blushing Flower die. You can see I used the positive and negative diecuts – thats how much I love this patterned paper! Sentiment from PTI Bitty Bouquets.


For the next 2 cards I used PTI Bitty Bouquets and patterned paper from the paper pad. Again conserving paper by using as much as I could!


Stay tuned because you’ll see a LOT of that patterned paper here I think! 🙂

Giveaway Alert

Speaking of PP, I am de-stashing a bit and have a HUGE pile of patterned paper that I’m unlikely to use in this life and the next 5 lives. So if you’d like a pack of assorted PP sheets, please leave a comment. I’ll email you for your address.

It’ll be 10 6×6 sheets in each mystery envelope and I’ll keep sending them out till I run out. Will be mailed out by USPS first class mail.

US friends only please. The cost is just too high to mail internationally.

Will have to check out my local craft store to see if I can find the On Trend paper. It is GORGEOUS! Thanks for sharing.

    LOVE your generosity…(and the paper)!!! A friend of mine volunteers making cards for our soldiers, overseas…she makes around 1,000 cards throughout the year with her volunteer group…so your gift of some paper would go to a wonerful cause!

    What beautiful cards, Chaitali! I especially love the third one down with the graphic drawn lines with the soft flowers. The contrast just does it for me today for some reason! And thanks for the giveaway! I’ve been using up what I have before I buy more and it would be fun to have some new in the mix.

    Your cards are all so beautifully crafted. I love patterned paper too and tend to use it depending on each project!!! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!!

    I enjoy getting your blog posts in my inbox. Your cards are inspiring. I’m curious how you tacked the vellum on the first card. I love that look but I figured out how to take to the patterned paper.

    I love all the cards today and your artistic spin on the last two cards. I ADORE patterned paper and I would love to have anything you want to part with. Thank you for the inspiration today!

    Oh, thank you. I use a lot of my own patterned paper stash for my students at school to make Mother’s and Father’s Day card. My stash is seriously depleted now, so I really appreciate it.

    I would love to take some of your patterned paper off your hands. I love patterned paper & use it on every card I make. Thanks. I love all the cards that you featured today. They are amazing and gorgeous.
