Happy Birthday, Paper Temptress!


If you love luxurous papers, then you must be a customer of the Paper Temptress!  This week, we are celebrating the company's first anniversary with a treasure hunt!  As promised yesterday, I used the Sherrod Studio Color Combo for my ensemble.  (Stampin Up: Barely Banana, Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, White or Very Vanilla,  CTMH: Buttercup, Cranberry, Brown Bag, White or Vanilla.)  Paper Temptress has a wide selection of colors...perfect for matching up with all those blog color challenges out there!



These papers bring a lot of shimmer and dimension to your papercrafting project.  Sherrod Studio has a lovely Thansgiving set.  When paired up with Paper Temptress papers, look what a neat invitation you can send out for Turkey Dinner! Yum!  I used an oval mask and sponged the corners around this great bird. So, even though the paper is Ivory, you can see some of the glimmer through the ink!


This Cornecopia Box is filled with three Ghirardelli chocolates...a perfect favor for your dinner guests!  And as always, by changing the theme and colors, you could use this box for any sort of gathering or dinner.
I used papers that can be bought together in the Christmas Paper Package offered by Paper Temptress.  These include:  Red Ruche for texture and Poison Ivory Iridescent for glimmer!  There is a different gold paper in the Christmas Package.  I used Gold Sparkle which is available separately.  I also used Double Duty Chocolate.


If you are one of the Treasure Hunters, my letter is:

The amusing story about this...I bought a bag of Reese PB cups. When I got home, I realized that it was a mixed bag...1/2 milk chocolate and 1/2 dark chocolate.  So beware if you are stocking up on PB cups! haha. Hey...skip the chocolate and snag some out of your kids' treat bags.  Go over to Paper Temptress and pick up some paper!
