No, you're not limited to using the Stars paper. Kris posted the paper so that the paper won't be duplicated by someone else that is purchasing 12x12 paper and that everyone else that is making handmades, knows the theme/colors in the paper. It just makes it easy if I am making die cuts to see what colors to work with. I hope I answered your question and didn't confuse you.
Yes, that was a wonderful response! I was thrilled to know that is why. It does make life easier to know what is bought. This is a great line and I bought the whole kit, so I want to spread the love to the entire line. I find I make each photo mat different due to thinking I can do the next one "better." HA! If only I would just make one and duplicate it, but noooooooo.....
ok so my craft stores ALL AROUND ME do not carry this paper. Is it to late you think to order another pad from sb.com???? I am one person short for the pattern paper (not including me, so that makes 2 people short)
My lss doesn't have anything that was released w/i the last 12 months, it seems. They still have A LOT of paper of the very first kit swap we did...and a whole lot of christmas. I gave up on getting the paper locally a couple kits ago and just order...waiting for shipping deals.
