This stack of glitter papers that match the Once Upon A Time album provide the perfect backdrop for the scrapbook pages I am making for a wedding album. After searching for months for the most unique and one-of-a-kind album and pages, this was my answer and I couldn't be more pleased. Will have to send pics after it is done- wedding is only 13 days away! Papers are high quality and the perfect card stock weight! Thanks again from a VERY happy "storyteller"!
I was a little hesatent about this paper for a long time I just kept looking at it and thought it didnt suit my style, well I had to do a book on faries and low and behold this was the paper for me every page is simply beautful and works well with each other, needless to say my fairy book was a big hit and I still have tons of paper to make one for myself. I love this stack and would recommend to any one who wants Happily Ever After

I love love love this stack! Once Upon a Time is such a perfect title. This stack is great for Disney Princess pages even though it's not Disney paper.
Also I love embellishing it with puffy paint. I used it on the dragon page, potion page, mermaid page, and castle page. They came out looking like a true fairy tale! Not to mention it makes a plain page look spectacular!

This paper is soOOOOOO beautiful!! There are many pages with glitter and some without. The ones without make great backgrounds for pictures on the glittery ones. It's very hard to cut this paper because it is just gorgeous. You get a lot of paper for the price and it coordinates well with the line. I'm trying my hardest to give it justice, but it's very difficult.

This paper is absolutely gorgeous and is versatile enough to fit in with any theme. I love how well the pages work not only by themselves but also as a collection. Especially a big fan of the Frog Prince story woven on a few of the pages since it's the 200th anniversary of the publishing of the Brothers Grimm classics. Definitely a stack worth owning!

This paper was some of the most beautiful paper I have seen. The designs are different and more unique than a lot of the other papers on the market right now. I am always searching for designs that will help me make my creations unique and this is deffinately one of the products that help me do that.
The layouts are so beautiful! Like everything DCWV makes, it's creative, different and simply perfect in every detail. Like a friend of mine said, "this stack makes me want to just stare at it all day and not use it, because it's so pretty". Brings back memories of my childhood and fairytales.
These papers are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. They are perfect for the Once Upon A Time album, and most of them would be great in any album. But together! These papers, in both the 12 x 12 and the 8 x 8, are lovely.
I'm leary to buy paper stacks b/c i don't wind up using half of them. But I will be using every piece of this paper!!! You don't even need alot of embellishment with the glitter paper because it's so well decorated as is.

I love this paper! It is beautiful and easy to use. I love the knight and dragon papers best and they worked so well for my firefighter pages!

I bought this stack because it's the perfect backdrop for the castle-like setting of our wedding. I'm not thrilled with some of the papers - as one poster noted, I don't find much use for the wizard, fairy, and mermaid themes, but am setting them aside for possible Halloween LOs in future - but the tapestry and title pages are wonderful. Be careful when you turn pages: the glitter adhesive can stick from page to page, leaving you with heartbreaking rips on your beautiful paper.

I sort of had a wish of mine granted this year and wanted to scrap the story. These papers were perfect, especially since some of them have titles already on them that come in handy ("Once Upon A Time", "There Lived A Hansome Prince", etc.). I thought they would be hard to work with since they are so beautiful and full of detail, so I bought the matching mat stack and embellishment pack to go along with them and it has made it much easier to cut, tear, and paste the papers.

I am using this paper stack to create a fairytale album of my daughter's wedding. This paper is perfect for wedding albums!! It includes pages that are perfect for individual pages of the bride & groom (prince & princess), once upon a time, and happily ever after, along with many other great pages!

I like the variety in this pack -- some pages are absolutely reminiscent of Renaissance Festivals and Courtly love with others can be used for pretty much any layout.

DCWV Once Upon a Time stack is perfect for many different uses. I used a lot of it for a scrapbook of our visit to Universal Studios, Harry Potter/Hogsmeade pages, Mythos pages, also a couple pirates pages from our time at Disney. You could use it for Halloween, make-believe, school plays, weddings, travel. There are so many fanciful pages that you can use it for just about anything. There is definitely a fanciful feel about all the pages...mermaids, dragons, princes/princesses, etc. So much fun to use. I highly recommend it!
This stack is so perfectly named. Some scrappers may find some of the pages a bit limiting but at the same time... there are tons of projects that this stack would be perfect for and tons of projects that you'd be inspired to do that you never would have thought of otherwise had it not been for this stack. Could work nicely for wedding/engagement albums, BOM's, baby albums, childrens' albums... the possibilities are endless. All cardstock, though, so just be sure you keep that in mind when ordering.
I love this paper pad. It is so beautiful and elegant. Its nice and thick cardstock paper, so you don't have to mat on anything. The patterns and designs are so gorgeous. I love them all.. And there are so, so, many ways that you can use this paper! I've used it for vintage like pics and more recent ones, my mom did one of her horse on this paper. It's very versatile. Great product!!
When I purchased this patterned paper stack I was blown away by the variety in patterns and the beauty and artistry in each print.
Many of the prints are decked out in glitter that compliments the patterns so nicely and the non glitter prints are incredible on thier own.
I would definately recommend this paper for any variety of card, paper crafts, and OF COURSE Scrapbooking!
This is great paper for making all of those fantasy pages. Little boys and girls become knights and princesses. Men and women become lords and ladies with this background. Hardest part might just be actually cutting or attaching anything to it.
This paper is wonderful and can be used as a create your own story book o even as wedding paper. I liked it so much that I bought 2!
I'm currently using this paper stack to scrap our wedding album. So far, I've enjoyed working with the selection of papers included. The weight of the paper is really nice. It's almost the weight of normal cardstock. There is a lot of glittery embossing throughout the entire selection of papers which really gives it that special something.
My only complaint would be the filler papers. There are several within the stack that I don't see myself using. Mermaids, fairies, unicorns, dragons, etc. I would have preferred the entire stack be tapestries, parchment, storybook text, castle walls, etc.
Overall, it's definitely something I would recommend to others. In addition, it coordinates beautifully with the Once Upon A Time album. The entire collection is definitely making my wedding album something to oooh and aaah over.
I can't use this stack! It's just too beatifull to cut up! I gaze at it in marvel every time I open my paperdrawer. I take it out, flip trough it, and realise time upon time again... There is no way, I can do anything to this paper that actually does it justice. It's too pretty to alter!
