As promised (I think I promised at least), a picture of the paper I purchased this weekend. I ended up keeping all of them. Lol. I had selected 8 sheets to exchange for what I really needed. The baby was fussy and it didn’t seem worth the $2+ tax I would have received. They are all so pretty. Even though some might not work for the Orchid, and maybe even be a bit too big for 1:12 scale in general, it might work for my bigger 1:6 scale dolls! — Which now that I think of it, I have never shared here…I should maybe introduce them as well! So rude of me, especially considering you know I will be building for them in the future! 😀
All the papers are from the Micheal’s Recollections collection and if you’d like to know the name just ask. This whole rampage started with an idea that the living room should be a dark purple like my roombox has become. Although it usually looks really dark in photographs, it’s an eggplant purple. While at Micheal’s I first picked up some similar coloured cardstock, which photographed horribly, and then picked up the following papers as I went along, hoping, you know, to have the “design epiphany” we all hope for in the scrapbook paper isle. LOL
Anyways, here are the goods. 😀
There you have it, my thought process for the Orchid wallpapering…in pictures. LOL.
I also picked up these for some fun backgrounds for Blythe. Nia helped me choose them of course. 😀
I am happy with my overall purchase(s). I am not sad I had to keep the extra sheets. 😉 When I got home and calculated it, I actually saved a lot of money. I purchased 24 sheets at 4/$1. So $6+ tax. They are regularly $1. So It would have been $24. Not that I would ever spend that much on paper, but I did spend $5 on the paper for the kitchen after I ripped it and went back to buy more in a panic that they would stop carrying it (and yes, they still have it LOL).
That is all the pretty paper I have for you today. I hope you don’t get paper fever or anything. If you do, I cannot take responsibility!
Before I go, here is a peek at the progress on my stairway;
I have more completed now. I’m just waiting on my brain to decide on a wallpaper colour, then I have to sand and paint them. If I had not fallen asleep last night with the babies so early, I would have a more current picture to share with you. But that will come tonight!
Have a great day everyone! 🙂
