I so enjoy all things paper! I notice the texture, scent, patterns, colors, weight and even the "vibe" of paper. I also dislike having to throw away paper if it still has "life" to it. Privacy envelopes are a good example of this. Have you ever noticed the pretty patterns inside these envelopes?

I had a friend ask me the other day if I made cards and scrapbook pages other than what I post in my blog... the answer is most definitely "yes". She then told me I should share all my paper crafting projects on my blog. I appreciated her enthusiasm, and I will try to post more of my projects online, but sometimes I don't post the projects right away because I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipient of the project. However, here are a few cards I have made recently...
