I've got a golden ticket.....

Ok, I haven't got a golden ticket, but I sure know how to make one!
Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology collection caused quite a stir when it was revealed at CHA this summer, and I have been one of those scrapbookers waiting with, I admit, not very much patience for the collection to arrive in the UK.

It is now here (hoorah!) and available in the store, and though it is hard to narrow down my favourite item within the range, I think if I was pushed to choose one I would say the tickets.

You get 100 tickets, on a roll, perforated and ready to tear and add to your papercraft projects. Each ticket measures 1.25" x 2" and they have a soft mint edge to them which is neutral enough to use on most projects, or which can be covered quite easily with a quick rub over with an ink pad (gold for example!!). At just £3.99 a roll these are my "must have" item at the moment. They work out as just 4p per ticket and you could buy a pack and split with a crafty friend - or be greedy like me and get a whole roll to yourself and use them without a care in the world for your decadence!!

An example of how you might use them indulgently (is that even a word?) is as a strip to house your layout title, as illustrated in my layout below.

Those of you lucky enough to be attending the forthcoming retreat is just over 2 weeks time will be able to see Suzanne teach a class using other items from the Parisian Anthology range, again, another inpatient wait for me!
