Exclamation Enabling Alert*** Handmade Paper at Costco

I just returned from our Costco with a package of 72 sheets of HANDMADE 100% Cotton/Silk fiber 12 x 12 paper. It comes in three different varieties. The one I got is mostly blacks and grays. They also have one that is mostly reds and pinks, and one that is mostly whites and creams. Each pkg. has 6 each of 12 different designs.

But wait! There's more! I had a Costco coupon for $4 off the paper!

Ok. I saw this too, but I was afraid to buy it because I didn't know what to do with it. Anyone have any examples to share?

I don't have samples made with the Costco paper because I just bought it about an hour ago.

Below are links to three examples in my gallery made with handmade papers bought other places. I like to use it as a background paper with only a couple of layers--it shows off more of the paper that way.

OMGosh, your cards are gorgeous! I love the look of the multi-textured layers! Geez Louise - I guess I'll have to make another Costco run this week to see if I can find them here! TFS!

I bought some cream paper last night at Costco but I want the other two colors also. I left my $4 coupon at home so I went to customer service to see if they had any extra books. They didn't but the gal told me the cashiers had some and they could scan the coupon from their book. Fortunately, the cashier I went to had a book that still had the coupon in it so I got the discount! I might try that again if I get down there before the coupon expires. I do have one here at home but it is missing at the moment. I am going to use a lot of the paper for collages.

My SIL's and I each received a different pack of this paper for Christmas and then we split it up evenly between the three of us. Mine is sitting in a big stack - I want to use it - but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I think some of the papers in the neutral pack would make gorgeous wedding cards.
