Scraps of Love – The Riverbank Collection

Scraps of Love (scrapbook store) here in Phoenix recently moved to their new location.  It is only a couple of blocks from their old location but is much larger.  I went there bright and early on opening day wearing my Scraps of Love T shirt.  This qualified me for a 20% discount which I used with gusto.

Amongst my many purchases was a pad of patterned paper from a UK company that was new to me.  The collection is called The Riverbank and I bought it along with two matching stamp sets.  The company is called the Craft Consortium.  Anyway, the paper is thick and double sided which is wonderful.  I think this may be the first time that I ever bought a pad of paper where I loved every page.

I made my first card using one of the stamp sets and one of the papers.  I had to make the card larger than the usual A2 size to have any of the background paper visible.  I am thinking the images are sized for a typical UK sized card which is bigger than A2.  In any case, I am about to try again with a second card designed to showcase the wonderful paper better.  In the meantime take a look at this card.
