Let me explain the paper: it is slightly more expensive than the other designer paper because it is textured and slightly heavier but worth every penny. Stampin' Up! has 3 other specialty papers as well.
Oh - and the corduroy buttons? Love them!! They are just so different and a great way to add dimension and texture to a project. And a great price too!
