I was wanting to use newsprint, but since it yellows easily and isn't scrapbook friendly I tried some alternative ideas! I found an online image of a vintage newspaper and then just printed it onto cardstock and used it that way! I got the idea from some others here on the boards!
I have some black with silver words. I love it. Unfortunately I have no idea the manufacturer.
I also have some halloween-theme paper by Making Memories that is black with white words. I've used it on all kinds of layouts, including a Christmas page. It's great, as long as you don't READ the words. I think it's the story of the headless horseman.
