LOL Sue.... I can relate to the "lookin' at it" part! Every time I buy some new papers, I am so choosy how I use them. I think NO. THOSE ARE MY NEW PAPERS. Now, how in the world am I supposed to enjoy them if I don't just jump in and use them... you tell me!!!
Have you seen the coredinations card stock? It is a little stiffer than Bazzill , textured and a little lighter (same color) on the inside so it distresses AWESOME. They have smaller packages that do different things... one of them I purchased has black on one side and color on the other.... so when you tear or distress the black side, the color shows through. I used it on some of my circle journal pages. Hope to upload later today.
