choose paper for your scrapbook. Craft paper with seals of approval is
ideal when creating scrapbooks. Craft paper includes the CK OK

choice papers. The paper that most crafters use is the pH that does not
go over 8.0. The ideal level is 6.5 and/or 7.5. Un-buffered paper is
the choice for many crafters, yet some recommend buffer paper with

course, you can mark your pages, including dates, names, locations,
etc, with craft pens, yet the letters you create with patterns will
