thought so off to buy more paper ... just kidding with you guys!!

I have 200 sheets of patterned paper. I would love for someone else to count theres because I was really expecting a whole lot more ... so is this good, not so good, horrendous, what do you think??

I am still going to use up what i have. I mean, 200 sheets of paper will make a heck of alot of cards, right? I have alot of plain colored card stock but I did not count that. I wonder if i should count that too. I also did not count my scrap sheets and lord knows I have a ton of those too!!

So that is my final count for the day. What do you all think?

My count is done--11 sheets--LOL!! I guess I'll never qualify as a printed paper lover. But please don't ask about plain color sheets. Or the expense into my handmade papers.
Isn't too fun how we can have different tastes and interests!?!

I have 123 sheets of patterned paper. Enough for lots of cards, but some I bought so long ago I'm not really keen on it anymore. Well, that's my sad tale for today.....off to use some of it up now.

Well my count is 406 for the 12x12. That doesn't include the 8x11 which would probably add another 200. Then there's 12x12 that have been cut in half that I didn't count, that would be another 100. WOW! Maybe I should not buy anymore. Even with all of that paper I still sometimes can't find what I want!!!

OK, so I counted my 12x12 & I have 737 sheets. I have 213 8 1/2 x 11 sheets. I did not bother counting my regualr cardstock...but I did notice at least 10 or 11 packs of SU cardstock that I have never even opened yet! I guess I had better take Sherri up on her challenge. I am seriously thinking of donating a bunch of my not so expensive pp to a Women's Shelter or School, you know just so I can make more room for the good stuff! :D

I think I need MORE paper! ha ha ha

I do not buy those stack packs - i only like a few sheets in them and so I figure why get them at all. If i had those, it would be way worse!!! :)

Now I feel better. ha ha

That got everyone else to count theirs too. A lot of paper..I only have 20 patterned. But hey I'm still learning. I do buy the reams of solid 8x11 when it's on sale at M's and that's what 50 in a pack. So I probably have 150 sheets of solid, they are organized in the paper stacker by color. how fun.

why are we counting? Couldn't we just stack it then measure it with a ruller? I have like a foot... I"m gonna go count just to make you happy.

I'm not counting cardstock or cut sheets or my 8x8 pads, I use those tons.

I think if we give away a bunch of paper that counts as "using" it up and we can buy more then... right??? Lots of mine is ugly.. why did I buy ugly paper?

Ok I counted JUST the pattern paper
12x12 469
8x8 226

um... I think I might have a paper problem! I just never hardly use it on cards... I think I'm gonna then never do I use cardstock mostly. I think I'm gonna sell like half of it in that garage sale thingie at the stamp store.

491! This is the bulk of it. I have more scattered thither & yon but, shouldn't be too much more. The distressing part (other than how much it all cost) Wild Asparagus 26 (thought there was more but I guess that's cause it's so think) Basic Grey 34. The truly scary part: Chatterbox 73!!! Yikes. My CBX addiction is sad. I only have 19 sheets of Chirstmas so, I should be allowed to get more, right???

I haven't counted mine but I feel 100% certain that I'm in the 300 to 400 page range not counting card stock. And there is never enough Christmas paper. Every so often I'll get a 8x8 pack or a scrap pack and someone gave me a 12x12 pack a while ago and I haven't used half of that. But I'll still buy more :D
