I Love Paper
I think it is always good to have quality products, great learning tools and a little bit of knowledge about the world of papercrafting.
The following lists will have some of my favorite papers and card stocks, and which company designs them, as well as the GSM of the papers. Not all of their products and designs will be in the gallery, as there are just so many. Please remember most of these company’s produce 6×6, 6×8, 8×8, 12×12 paper packs and also will sell matching 12×12 patterns or backgrounds packs, matching ephemera, die cuts, stickers, wooden cuts, flowers, journaling cards, borders, rice papers, word cuts, frames, puffy stickers, washi tape and more. The products can be purchased as a single item or in collections and bundles. You can head to my “Where I Shop” page to purchase the papers and card as most of those company’s and stores sell them.
I will also list some of my favorite Cardstock and specialty card brands and what I use them for.
And just to keep things interesting I will be spotlighting some of my favorite YouTube paper crafters and a small run down of who they are, and information about their online presence, stores if they have them, product lines if they have them etc…. Keep an eye out for Crafters Spotlight.
I hope this helps others who are starting out on their journey and maybe open seasoned crafters to something wonderful and new.🔖💌✂️
