I have a weakness for many things…but pattern paper is at the top of my list. It may have stemmed from my fabric collecting back in the 1990’s, a former quilter I loved anything that was fabric related. Then I began to scrapbook. I loved collecting papers to use in my albums (the more vintage looking the better)…and now with mixed media art the fetish continues.

K & Company always seems to tug at my heartstrings…and when I found these paper patterns a few weeks ago I could not resist the gorgeous colors and design. The colors are more bright then what I normally work with…and the journals kept coming.

Of course they had to have some beautiful faces and you all know I love Paper Whimsy. That is where the hard part came in…which face to highlight the cover because there are so many to choose from! Here is my menagerie of journals each adorn with a charming sweet face. I made a link under each so you can find that beautiful face in the Paper Whimsy Shoppe.

About Sugar Lump Studios

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.


  1. Nancy, these are wonderful…what fabulous usage of the K and C
    papers… cant decide which is my favorite, these are all so beautiful….I thought the paper was fabric at the beginning..WOW..

  19. Hi, yes, I am in Kuwait. Almost 17 years now. boo! I have an aunt and cousins in Michigan and have spent many a summer there. When I am out walking in 80 degree temps while there, they think I am crazy. It will be a while before we are down to 80 during the day around here. :/ Our summer temps can get about 120 some days. Wishing you a great week. Tammy
