Cream Flower Holey Cardstock
When someone says "Paper Lace", this is exactly the kind of design that comes to my mind. This is definitely a contemporary take on paper lace though; the flowers in this design are trendy and updated, unlike the more elaborate floral designs that you see on the antique paper lace greeting cards that I collect. I love everything about this gorgeous die cut cardstock, from the creamy color to the detailed cut-out leaves that accentuate the flowers.
Kudos to Samantha Walker for coming up with such a chic and useable collection! I think this particular color is so versatile. You could use it for pretty much any layout you can think of. Well, OK, maybe not your husband's hunting / fishing / football layouts. But other than that. This paper would be extraordinary in wedding layouts, but would also be appropriate for using for children's or teens' layouts, birthday, spring, summer, winter, everyday, Easter, Mother's Day, ETC ETC ETC! I think it could be worked in with just about any feminine or "girly" theme you could think of.

Here's a lovely bold red design. Very dramatic! and Daring! Remember that this paper can be cut and used in smaller pieces or segments if necessary, but if you use the entire sheet of this Holey Cardstock in one scrapbook layout, it is pretty much guaranteed to be a show-stopper. I think that this particular color of Holey Cardstock would be fun to cut into smaller shapes and used as embellishments. For example, I would love to cut circles and flower shapes and heart shapes out of it to use under a sprinkling of Prima flowers on either scrapbook layouts or handmade greeting cards. This would also be a fun paper to use for making friendly, non-mushy handmade Valentines, Valentine's Day pages, or Valentine's Day gifts for friends.

Here's a delightfully chic but not too "Shabby" scrollwork Holey Cardstock design in pink. This is the perfect paper for any paper crafter who is a fan of the Chic and Shabby Cottage Romantic style. This is a lovely, versatile paper that has a variety of creative uses. It would be lovely to use in layouts for baby girls, toddlers, children, "'tweens", teens, or adults. This is a good paper to use for Mother's Day cards and layouts (assuming mom loves the color pink, that is!), Easter, or for any layout that involves roses, pink flowers, a love theme, or just needs a touch of pink scrollwork paper lace.

Lagoon Swirl Holey Cardstock
Here is the "Lagoon" color of Holey Cardstock by Creative Imaginations. I haven't actually seen this color in person yet, but it appears to be a lovely light seafoam green color. I can't wait to see this paper in person. I think it looks like a really versatile design with a multitude of possible uses. This is a color that I use frequently in both my art and scrapbooking. It's a soothing color- easy on the eyes and easy to combine with other colors. While I love vivid colors, especially pinks and purples, I find that the brighter colors will often sit unused in my paper stash when I actually scrap; I usually reach for pale blues, aquas, greens, tans and browns when I create new layouts. One thing I have learned from my career as a textile designer is that every color palette needs a green or two (or three!). This "Lagoon" color looks like one of those perfectly lovely pale greens that is a no-brainer to actually use. I love it!!

Chocolate Swirl Holey Cardstock Die Cut Paper Lace
Well, here's a new, different and exciting interpretation of a classic polka dot pattern! Instead of being printed on the paper, the polka dot pattern is die cut, opening up a lot of creative possibilities for you when you craft with this paper. You can layer this paper overtop of another paper (either patterned, textured or plain). Or you can thread fibers, ribbons, colored wire, cord, fabric strips ETC through some of the holes to create stripes, borders or accents anywhere on the page. You could fasten brads or eyelets to some of the holes...you could do "lacing" effects...so many creative possibilities. There are 6 different colors of the Dot design to choose from, but this Hot Pink color is especially lovely!
