Costco 360-Sheet Paper Pack

I was so excited this weekend when I was able to make the 3-hour trip to San Antonio (girls, dogs and all!) to meet Peter and I got to go to Costco and they had the My Mind's Eye paper pack everyone was raving about on SCS! I've heard that the only difference between the Magnolia and Wild Asparagus papers inside it from those you would get at your local scrapbook store is that they're a little thinner. Do I care? NO!!!! They are gorgeous!! Some of them aren't my style, but I'm going to use that to challenge myself when I make my projects. I decided to use some of the Magnolia paper to make a farewell card for my friend Naomi, and then I liked it so much I decided to make part of my baby shower gift f0ro my husband's Squadron Commander's wife. I traditionally give them something, whether handmade or not, AND some thank you notes to use for the shower. She doesn't know what she's having, and I will usually make them more male or female depending on the baby the shower is for, but these I just went with a general thank you theme. Well, here are the two pictures of them. Let me know what you think!

Naomi's card:
Stamp Sets: Green Thumb by Papertrey Ink, Linen BG, Flannel Plaid BG
Card Stock: Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Magnolia paper
Ink: Cool Caribbean, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Accessories: Marvy Uchida Mega Circle punch and Giga Scalloped Circle punch

  7. Oddly, they have no watermark o nthe back saying who made the paper either. I do wish it had been some of the heavier cardstock with it. Did you get the handmade paper packs at Christmas time? They were to die for too. I have so mauch paper now-I was thining of making up RAks of paper. My problem is I usually cut up my paper packs into 6 x6 or 12 by 6 sheets and that scares people off. I wonder if I gave some away on my blog, how many would want some?
