View Full Version : Retro Scrapbooking paper?

11-02-2004, 01:30 AM
Has anyone seen any? Im looking for small patterns, stripes or prints in the yellow/green/orange category....the good old 70s. Im doing DH's baby album for MIL for xmas and a lot of the pictures have all these colors and would look great with the right paper. Any suggestions?

There are a lot of great retro papers that have come out this year. My two favorite companies for the retro look are SEI and KI Memories.

I'm not sure what shades of these colors you are looking for but this SEI collection seems to those colors...

I couldn't find one collection from KI Memories, but you can mix and match the collections and they have really bright, fun colors.

Hope this helps!

I'm working on a scrapbook right now that has a retro look. This is a complete album that I've been contracted to do for a friend of the family. I want the layouts to follow a similar theme so I went with paper from Die Cuts with a View that has 70's patterns and colors and I've also used metal accents on most pages.

I did not want to use 12 x 12 paper in this album but this design comes in 12 x 12, 8 x 8 plus coordinating solid paper. I've seen this paper at A.C. Moore and JoAnn Fabrics in many sizes. It is sold in scrap pads and not single sheets.




HTH, happy scraping!
