I have noticed that we use lots of different type papers on our scrapbooking projects. From mini albums to the embellishments that we use in and on them.

There is Vellum, cardstock, metallics, patterned and much much more. But, as I was trying to get a little organizing done in my studio one day, I came across a small stack of construction paper that needed to be sorted and put away. And that's when it hit me. I never see anyone using it. Construction paper that is. I thought long and hard trying to remember if I had seen any of this paper used in the videos I watch on You Tube and for the life of me I couldn't think of one that had.

 I couldn't help but wonder why. Why don't we use this paper? Is it unattractive? Is it because we think it's just for kids to use? Why? It was at that moment I decided to take matters into my own hands and MAKE SOMETHING! Yes, make something and incorporate it into one of my projects.

These are the little gems I came up with. I hope you like them and that you too might add construction paper to your list  of materials when you  start to create something beautiful. :)


  1. I bought my first papers (kinda like construction paper) at Long's Drug Store (now called CVC) back in 2001 when I started scrap booking. Then I discovered I all the beautiful papers and the fancy cardstock, I went paper crazy and became addicted. Your flowers look great! What a wonderful thought you had! Hugs my friend, Velma
