|My Mind's Eye Lime Twist 180 pages|
Saturday, however, I was out and about in town. My local paper shop and scrapbooking enabler Warehouse Stationery has a sale on these 180-sheet My Mind's Eye pads.
I picked up the Lime Twist collection for a mere $25 (about 20% off) as it was fun, bright, and included some much coveted chevron patterns which are a big hit this season.
This pad has a lot of vibrant, playful colours and patterns that are gender and somewhat a little age neutral. I could imagine doing a lot of children's birthdays and some adult-oriented birthday cards with this one pad. The patterns are really fresh, like the aqua wood grain, hexagons, chevrons, and stars. Even has a little bit of a "retro 70's schoolhouse rock" feel. Very awesome.
I really think this is a great collection despite being thinner paper. I am probably going to start crafting with this right away, as I still need to replenish my stock of birthday cards both for sale and personal use.
The paper itself in this pad isn't a heavy cardstock, it's a lighter paper (feels about 160gsm). Because of this, this patterned paper will be ideal for layering and building POPS of colour.
|Washi Tape From Typo|
I also picked up some fun washi tapes at my local Typo store in town, but they're not released yet on their website! I feel so exclusive! Please excuse my bad photography. I think the black lace pattern with hearts is just so cute. The brown tape is a bronze/coppery colour and is quite cool. I could definitely do some edging with this tape.
If you have the Lime Twist (out of the blue or otherwise) and used it in a card or layout, link me! I'd love to see it and be inspired by your talent!
