Friendship Gift Set

I've been hording this paper from Scenic Route for a few months now and today's color challenge on SCS finally made me bring it out and cut it up. I just love their paper!! It's a nice heavy weight with a matte finish. Plus their colors are always so vibrant... just my kind of stuff!! I'm thinking about ordering some for the store and would love your input on the new Garland and Sonoma lines.
I used a few different sheets to paper piece the outfits on my cafe' girls. Did you happen to see the challenge for Monday in the MFT forum? It was to paper piece a card - which is one of my favorite things to do anyways - lol!
I made a matching box to match the card. This is the same pattern I have FREE in the store on Paperaddiction.com. It is in a .pdf file for easy dowload and shows the measurements to score and the has the cutting instructions. This is a fun little box to make and only uses one sheet of 8.5x11 paper. You'll only need to download one pattern.

We have a sale on our paper and stamp bundles right now - which is a 20% savigns. We have some great papers from October Afternoon which are really pretty and also some of their clear stamps. This was one of our favorite companies at the summer CHA show!

If you've dowloaded the box pattern I would LOVE to see what you make with it! You can either leave a link in a comment right here or email me a link to the address listed above. Thanks for reading!

I'm with you - I love Scenic Route papers. Garland is nice, but not spectacular. Sonoma, on the other hand, is beautiful! Since I am a cardmaker rather than a scrapbooker, I tend to prefer the all-over patterned papers to the corner-only designs.
Hope this opinion helps.

Oh, what a cute set! Love the colors and patterns of the papers! I downloaded your popcorn box but haven't had time to put it together yet. Going to Vermont to visit my daughter at college tomorrow...plan to do the box next week and will post a link.
