Every time I scrap I wish I had some more decorative papers. Glittery, textured, simmer, whatever to give my pages a pop. Without having to buy each page seperate at a store does anyone know where to get a bundle anywhere, reasonalbly priced? They have sets at stores but they seem so expensive and don't have much variety.

Try your local JA. They have DCWV and also generally sell individual pages in multiple sizes if you have a larger store.
Good luck!

I just tried Stickles and it makes it very easy to put that glitter on existing paper that you have.


There is a buch of different colors, but the clear is my favorite, b/c it just gives it a glittery effect.

Die Cuts With a View has what they call stacks. They have glitter cardstock stacks, tetured cardstock stacks, and speciality paper stacks (like All Occassion Glitter). I usually get mine at Joann's. Hope that helps!

p.s. To save some $$$ on the DCWV packs at Joanns, you might want to wait until they have either a 40% off SALE or coupon in the paper.

It is very pretty. I've only used it once so far, but for a paper pack, it's pretty good.

Normally there are a ton of papers that I know I'll never use and end up giving away in those packs, but this one I didn't have any extreme dislike and that's why I bought it.

DCWV= Die Cuts With a View - A paper company.

Yeah, the abbrevations take a while to get used to, but you'll catch on before you know it.

How do you like your new cricut?

I just got a silhouette 2 weeks ago, and I know what you mean. After spending a big chunck like that- it really puts a cramp into you scrappy budget. But it's oh, so worth it.

The Pocket full of posies is worth the $20 IMO. I don't buy a whole lot of paper stacks, b/c I don't always like all the papers, but I love that entire line.

1) Pattie already replied...

...I was gonna say...there's a link to a 40% off coupon at Michaels right now on the board...

2) Note: Anything made by Die Cuts With a View is usually put on sale at Joanns...If not Joanns, then also, keep in mind, that some (but not all) Michael's will accept Joanns Coupons at Michaels)

3) JFYI - I just came from shopping at Michaels this morning and noticed that there were also other companies that sell the larger packs for about the same price as the DCWV....Every other page includes glitter, embossed patterned paper , flocked patterned paper s, etc. (K & C Company, Me & My Big Ideas are 2 others to add to the list...)
