Did you know that Oriental Trading has lots of Scrapbooking and Paper Crafting supplies? I had no idea until I was browsing around recently just how many different products they carried in this category. I had always had the pre-conceived opinion that they just carried supplies for parties and crafts for carnivals and things like that. I had even ordered things from them before for Vacation Bible School and still didn't know about this "hidden treasure" that was just sitting there waiting for me to discover it. And since I didn't know I bet lots of you didn't realize it either and that's why I'm sharing this great resource with you. My two page layout above was created using all of the items shown under my scrapbook. I got them all from Oriental Trading, and they were all available with a minimum order of one. You don't have to worry about having to order multiple sets like some of their other items, these are all available in as many or few as you'd like.
Have I got your attention now? If not maybe some of these great items will peak your interest:
This is their 1/2 Lb. Pink Scrap Pack that features just what it says 1/2 Lb. of assorted scrap paper. I like this because it has the papers already cut with straight edges. There are so many ways you can use these papers to jazz up a plain page of pictures.
This assortment is their Christmas Scrapbook Paper Pack which you can pretty much tell just by looking at it why it's called that. I really liked this package and what it came with so I've included a few more individual pictures below of some of the papers included.
There's a few sheets of paper with cute words all over it that really you can use for things other than Christmas. I actually plan to use them in my sons baby scrapbook when I get it started. The other paper is a heavier card stock and can be used for lots of things. You can use it as a background just as it is, or you can cut out the individual parts to use on pages, or for other crafts.
The next thing I found really cool in this package was the half sheet card stock sheets above. They will make for some really awesome journaling boxes.
And finally there were several card-style folded sheets. Again I loved this because they are already pre-cut, scored, and folded ready to use. And they aren't exactly in Christmas only patters so I can utilize them year round for making my own cards, or letting my daughter make cards for her friends.
The final package of paper I got was their 3 Lbs. Solid & Pattern Mix Scrap Pack. As you can see it's another very nice assortment of papers in various pre-cut sizes. Several of the colors and patterns actually coordinate quite well with my Christmas pack so this will make for some great layouts. With two kids I'll be needing plenty of paper for their books and will be doing duplicate pages for holidays since I'm doing a book for each of them. Having such a great assortment, and duplicates of many sheets will be perfect!
Make sure you keep an eye out because I have even more great scrapbooking and paper crafting supplies to share with you soon!
