Pretty Papers with Stampendous

I'm back with a second post today! If you are looking for the Mix-Ability and 31 Days of Halloween post hop on over to here otherwise hang out to see what pretty papers have to do with Stampendous.

Every Stampendous catalog is sprinkled with inspiration from the design team. You can see them online here anytime, and when you are perusing the pages for ideas you'll notice the designers all have a splash of pretty papers on their projects.

These lovely paper samples sent to us are Graphic 45 Papers! The quality and design options are terrific for layering up frames and accents to our projects. And there will be three lucky commenters during the hop will have a chance to use them too! Stop by the Stampendous blog for prize details.

Now, it's time for my project for the hop!

Quite a few presents to go, but I think these mice have it well under control.
