"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Welcome to the World Cards


My good Friend Sarah (Fellow EtsyPaper Street Team Member) has been making these cards for a store owner in New Jersey. These cute cards have my handmade paper as a background. :) Recently she asked me to send her more brown paper so I went to my storage closet and pulled out a bunch of brown and beige papers.



This batch turned out really "textured". Most of the papers would not blend easily. Not sure if is was the papers or my blender. Maybe the poor thing has been used way too much. However, I just loved the outcome. That is one of the things I love about making paper. You blend up a bunch of different types and colors of paper and when you form the sheet, you are never sure how it will look. It is always a surprise! I pulled 10 sheets out for Sarah (you can see her shops here and here) and I have a few more left for doing with as I please! LOL




I really think I have way too much fun making paper...

This has plenty of character! Your paper as the background certainly compliments those great cards! Great job with your paper, Chrystal! Diann
