I am able to get a large bulk quantity of Shimmery White Paper. It is exactly the same as Stampin' Up's shimmery white for about a third of the cost.
So, here are the details! All sheets will be 8.5 x 11.
Package of 25 - $6.50 = $.26 per sheet
Package of 50 - $12.00 = $.24 per sheet
(SU's paper is $.75 per sheet this does not include shipping and tax!)
So, the total cost with shipping will be:
25 - $11.00 - for the flat rate envelope or $15.00 for the flat rate box
50 - $16.50 - for the flat rate envelope or $20.00 for the flat rate box
I will mail these out USPS Priority mail. I can either use the flat rate envelope or the flat rate box. I will carefully package the paper with chipboard to protect it, but there is only just so much protection with the envelope. The bigger package is a little more to mail but consider sharing with other local demonstrators, upline or downline. This way you will be able to split the cost of shipping so it is more reasonable. The paper should be fine in this box and will be easier to safely package.
I can accept paypal, checks, and money orders. If you are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you further details as needed.
So, that you know I do not have the paper in hand but will order as soon as I have enough orders. At that point it will take approximately 5 - 7 days to receive the paper, I will then package and send it out. I will post updates as frequently as I can. Thank you for considering participating!
P.S. The card that was posted before this post used some of the shimmery white paper that is available in this share.

Each month I do a swap with a friend and sometimes I feel very challenged at coming up with something new and exciting as well as different! I tend to feel like I do the same things over and over and don't want it to be that way. But it is hard when you are in a slump to come up with something different. Well, I know these mailboxes are not 'different' but it was new for me so it kind of felt that way!
I used the designer paper from SU and several of the different Sell a bration sets. The ribbon is some 'Jody' ribbon, I thought it went well with this! The opposite side has a saying with a few primas around it. I really felt like the whole thing needed something else but I could not decide on anything that I liked. So, I left it like this. It is a little plain but sometimes I think that works.
Just a little note about the designer paper. I am curious if the recipient has noticed! ;) I made painstakingly sure that the stripes on the flag pole matched the actual box when it is in the down position! Also note the dot in the middle of the prima on the flag bottom, it matches too! I was quite proud of myself for doing that if I say so myself! LOL!!

I came up with this card after doing the color challenge card. This card uses orchid opulence and always artichoke. The weathered background stamp is stamped with orchid on orchid. The flowers were colored with watercolor crayons and then I misted the stamp before stamping on the paper. I just stamped it three times so I could get the lighter impressions of it.
The brads are Karen Foster Loopy brads. I have had these for a while and have been wanting to use them. Seems as though everytime I try they just don't look right. Well I finally found the card they work on!
