Last week I visited one of my favorite scrapbook stores: Scrapbook Fever in Salem, Oregon. While there I picked up a few new things, three of which were textured papers. These are so hard to tell how cool they are online, but trust me, there's some really good texture happening here.
Spirit Red Polka Dot Felt from Creative Cafe : This is literally a piece of felt vs. a sheet of paper. It is imperfect (which I expect for a thicker piece of velvet with white dots) and I think that is one of the reasons I was attracted to it. Right now it is in my Christmas stash waiting to be used this holiday season.
Doodlebug Beetle Black Chenille Cardstock : I am thinking this one would be perfect for some of my Halloween projects. The texture reminds me a bit of those velvet paint sets – black and white where you color in with the colored pens. This would also be cool on the cover of a minibook.
Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock : Just the perfect amount of texture here. Feels lightly embossed. And hey, it's polka dots. Most likely this is coming soon to a store near you. (The dots are much closer together than the above image showcases – that is a close-up look at the dots.) I picked up a few sheets of this texture in white and beige and am just adding it to my background cardstock stash.
