How to use up all your cardstock!

When you're lucky enough to be building a new house, how do you choose the colour of your new kitchen splash back? Do you visit the manufacturer's showroom and select the colour from the samples on display? Or perhaps visit your local paint shop and collect some paint chips? Or maybe you find a kitchen to die for on the glossy pages of House and Garden?

Well they all sound like good ideas but if you're a paper crafter (and avid paper collector), then you raid your paper stash of course!

Here's what you do:

Gather together every shade of every colour of 12 x 12 card stock in your stash.

Tape the squares to the wall with double sided tape.
Stand back and eliminate, eliminate, eliminate.........
until you find the perfect colour..........Then match it to a paint chip.And the final colour choice: Dulux Jewel or in papercrafter's terms: Bazzill Purple. Mmmm....... deliciously sophisticated!

Who said you could never use every piece of card stock you had ever bought? I might not have cut them up, but I definitely did use them all!

And I just can't wait to do it all over again in my new studio!
