For those considering starting scrapbooking in the New Year, and for those needing to stock up on new papers, look no further. CC have fab 12 x 12 papers. I have so many papers I can't move for them. My daughter has a habit of buying me papers. But when I buy my own I love CC papers. The attached one is one of my favourites as it is so versatile. Also it is, along with quite a lot of others, part of the 5p sale Dancing Dancing Dancing

I hope Paul and Jenny don't mind me pushing their papers, but I thought due to the new interest in scrapbooking it was worth a mention.

with that paper you have frames already as you say versatile I bought some of the blue ragged paer 12x12 as liked that will be back in the sale section after New Year but thing is when looking at papers you dont stop in the sale

I love craft creations papers have bought some of the rainbow coloured papers in pastel shades as great for baby cards and if did insert with it you still had plenty trimmings for a card. ThumpUp

I know what you mean Anne. It's so easy to get carried away. But even at normal price I find them cheaper than my local craft store, and easy to look at too. In my local craft shop everything is all over the place and stacked in boxes. I get so frustrated. They used to be good but I don't think they are bothered with paper crafters now and just concentrate on sewing and knitting.

Waste of time asking him...he can't remember what he did yesterday most of the time!

I was telling P about a place we stayed at on holiday A couple of years ago and he couldn't remember it at all Scared His memory is beginning to worry me a bit! I reckon his little grey cells have been pickled by all the alcohol he has consumed over the years!

The thing is Kate, the place was a joke....you couldn't forget it! Going through the front door on the right was the double bedroom - you could just about walk round the bed. Right in front of you were the stairs and directly at the top of the stairs was the tele on a cupboard. Right next to the tele and I mean right next to, was a tiny table with two chairs (no way could two people sit round the table) then next to the table there was a bed that was also the settee, one of us had to sit on this to use the table if you follow. This would normally have been a landing and was about 8' wide at most. This living area led to the kitchen which wasn't a bad size and this, in turn led out onto a balcony which was larger than the living quarters. There was also a small bathroom which was over the stairwell. Now I ask you how could you forget accommodation like that. I was really glad to come home again after that week away.

Good job I have a sense of humour it wasn't cheap either!

I buy very few papers nowadays from Cc. I find there is so much wastewith 12x12 papers, plus they are a pain to store when 95% of your storage drawers and containers are A4 compatible.Sad
I have loads and don't know what to do with them without wasting about 25% of every sheet. There is a limit to how many strips you can cut and use for iris folding or quilling!Confused

My stack of 12 X 12 papers is about 1/3 of the size of my A4 papers and most of them were bought when CC had their sale. I use them a lot for scrapbooking, 6 x 6 cards and for making envelopes so I do use them a lot. What I need is some 12 X 12 white heavyweight paper and some lightweight card in white. Angel

Sad Sad to hear you son't like out papers, Margaret. You might like to look at our A5+ papers if it is just a problem of size. These are a little lager than an A5 so they will cover a 6 x 6 card or a 6 x 8 card with one sheet. Check them out here A5+ Papers

Angela our ECN paper and card comes in loads of different thicknesses, from 80gsm to 300gsm, and in all sizes from A6 to 12 x 12 or A2 so there may be something there for you. Despite it being an economy card it is really smooth and nice. You may want to check it out ECN Card and Paper

Sounds an interesting size and I like the look of the rainbow pack. It is a question of size with 12x12 a son the rare occasions I need smething bigger than A4 I need A3 and usually end up with white .
