This was a new thing for me...creating a theme around a Michael’s paper pad. I’ve always had a weird resistance to scrapbook paper pads because I just never know how to use them. Back in the day, when going to the craft store was relatively easy and the coupons, bargains and sales were plentiful, I would snag a paper pack or two if something caught my eye. I get them home and think “Now what?” And into the drawer they went.
This coffee themed pad with its watercolor style was cute and being Coffee & Creativity, I thought “well let’s just see if I can manipulate this one dimensional, commercial scrapbook paper into something a bit more...creative. Someone said on YouTube that the scrapbook paper industry has not caught up with the junk journal community.
