My Pink Addiction

A New Paper Collection & Designers' Creations

Introducing our brand new paper collection ~ 'Shabby Beautiful'

This is a fairly large collection and includes over 200 papers. There's some sentiment ribbons and card toppers plus some pretty accessory papers to play with too.

The whole collection is very feminine, pretty a little bit shabby but still very contemporary.

I am really enjoying using this collection as it's so feminine which I love and it means I can go mad with pink as my all time favourite colour to craft with!

It lends itself beautifully to using all the gorgeous embellies around at the moment ... go mad with lace, buttons, flowers, scallops, ribbons, doilies, buckles and pretty gems.

I hope you'll love it and have fun creating with it!
