STICKERS - The wide variety of acid-free stickers available add fun and excitement to your pages. Create themes, corner designs, borders and scenes.

COLORED PAPER - Colored paper can be cut in intricate designs, embossed or used to add matts behind special photos. The possibilities are endless.

DIE CUTS - Die Cuts are pre-cut shapes cut from acid-free paper that can be quickly mounted to your scrapbook page. Use them alone, add stickers or writing. Also be sure to save the die cut frames, you can mount them over photos or complimentary colors of acid free paper for some fun effects!
