{october afternoon}

Who doesn't love scrapbook paper? Even if you don't scrapbook (like me, at least not on paper), it can be used in a million other ways. Combined with mod podge, scrapbook paper can add a whole new level to many projects. It's essential for making cards, tags, and other finishing touches. Because the turnover on paper can be so high, I will just go in to my local store every few weeks and choose a few papers that I love, then tuck them away for a future project.

One of my current favorite paper lines is October Afternoon. What's not to love? Their papers all coordinate, but it's a delightful mix of vintage, with a slightly modern edge.

I just bought a bunch from The Thrift Shop Collection:

and the Fly a Kite collection:

Here are some of my current favorites:

LOVE this black & cream pattern. I can see it for so many home decor projects.

Polka dots are my favorite, and the other would be so fun for a sewing room project!

I just love this pinstripe!

October Afternoon also has a great blog with lots of ideas--scrapbook layouts, card ideas, and even other projects.

If you don't have access to a scrapbook store, there are many sites online that you can purchase from.

Thanks for sharing this. I've never seen that line before and I've been looking for double-sided paper for a project - they had the perfect papers!
