The day PaperMania won me over...

I have never really liked PaperMania products...I've always thought the card blanks are overpriced...the sticker things are yucky...I'm not even gonna start on the rub-ons...

But I've spent the past few days playing with some bits from their new Bare Basics range and I've gotta say I love 'em... They accidently fell in my basket when I was over here at Cutting Edge Crafts buying some bits n pieces (from now on I will only ever use these scissors, cute or what?!).

This little dude was made with one of the pillow box bases for the Crafty Angels "Anything but a Card" challenge:

Thanks for the inspiration girls!

I'm now in the midst of getting painty with one of these frames and I'm having myself some seriously good PaperMania fun...never thought I'd be writing that...


Those mini candy canes appear to be strangely addictive...on Monday I bought 80 of the things...I now have about 20 left...just think of all the small children's teeth I'm saving by eating them myself though...really, my not sharing is a good thing... ;)

love your cute pillow box Leann! I must say I do rather like the Papermania gems and their product range is vastly improved on what it was a couple of years ago.
hugs, annie x

Ooh, ooh, ooh where did you get those adorable wee candy canes from ? - super sweet ;D

I agree the papers are delish and as always your pillow box and everything you do is so beautifully layered and designed.

Big hugs for the kind comments too over at my place :D

Apologies for my lack of commenting recently but this is fab Leann, I have to admit that I don't tend to use that much PM stuff these days except for the gem stones but glad to hear that these back to basics stuff are good, may have to investigate myself! lol I hope you are well x
