Calling all you Crafty Paper Detectives out there...

Do you recognise these papers?

A number of years ago I found a nice bargain in Costco....a lovely zipped folder type bag with 300 12"x12" sheets of double sided printed heavyweight paper (I'd guess 250gm..ish). 75 designs...4 sheets of each in gorgeous earthy lush colours and distressed type patterns which have proved to be the main staple of my card and papercrafting...and even 3 years on I still have plenty left. They match a number of the Ranger/Tim Holtz colour palette perfectly which is why they proved such a big hit to me.

I've been asked a number of times who they are made by...and I'm ashamed to say I can't remember...only that it was an American company (hence stocked by Costco). I blogged about it at the time of purchase but didn't give the name. I vaguely remember looking up their website but discovering a site and trade company I hadn't heard of...and one I couldn't buy from. For some reason I never made or kept note of the company details...and now I want them GRRRRR! MY BAD LOL!

At £2oish the price worked out at about 7p per sheet...not including the carrier which I have seen lesser quality versions on sale at around £10-£15 so not long after I went back to greedily buy more (gotta stock up a bargain when you see one!) but sadly they had sold out and I never saw them in stock again. It's some of the best quality paper for the price that I've ever used and would love to get more...and also let others know where to get it from too. I took these photos of the packaging back in 2008 but unfortunately not of any company details and this packaging is now long gone.


Please let me know...

Ta muchly!
