I don't know what is up with my love for mushrooms lately? Look at this paper from Sassafras and these cool handmade crochet flowers to match. The flowers are on my etsy,

TIPS for storing your coordinating embellishments

This is what I do when I get embellishments that coordinate. I use little Ziploc type bags (from Michael's in the beading section). The bags make it so much easier and less bulky to store than the original packing. Then I paper clip the bag to the coordinating paper. This makes crafting so much fun when I don't have to think about it and everything is there at my fingertips! Love, Janel xoxo

More American Craft goodies....

Aren't these so cute!
These are by American Crafts and match perfectly with the paper.
I love using these on cards because of their light weight it doesn't cost extra to ship!

American Crafts Paper

Bought this at my LSS Pink Pineapple! Love this new paper! I think the chocolate brown is what got me. Just looking at this paper makes me happy! They have a whole line of coordinating paper with these colors.

Zip Dry Glue

I tried this glue and love it! Zip Dry PaperGlue is a unique acid-free, archival quality paper glue that dries super fast and will never wrinkle paper. Zip Dry PaperGlue is strong enough to bond metal and other trims to scrapbooks. It can also attach beads, glitter, rhinestones and wire to paper for adding a special decorative dimension to paper crafts. I love using this glue for ribbon. I paid $5 for 2 fl. oz. and well worth it, you don't need to use alot. My new favorite glue!!!!

I love stickles! This is a great product. It is like a glitter glue. You can add bling to your page, projects, or crafts. Fabulous for rubber stamping! It is an inexpensive way to get a rhinestone like effect without the high cost, or the fear of running out of rhinestones. This comes in a variety of colors. Careful they are very addictive. My sister and I have about 20 different ones! We are out of control. We are the stickle girls.
The only downfall with these is it does take a while to dry. But, it doesn't bother me a bit because it gives such a dramatic effect to prima flowers, buttons, paper, etc. It is well worth it. It dries very very shiny with tons of glitter.
You get a .5 oz plastic bottle with an applicator tip for about $2.50.
If I could eat the yummy colors I would!
