Have you ever checked out wallpaper books for scrap booking paper?
While purchasing paint at a SHERWIN WILLIAMS I noticed that they had quite a few wallpaper books to look through. On the off chance I asked if they ever sell or give away their outdated books and GUESS WHAT? He told me that they pull old books at the beginning of each month and they usually just throw them away...CAN YOU JUST HEAR MY HUGE INTAKE OF BREATH? So I casually asked if he had any that were going to get tossed any time soon. "Yep, as a matter of fact," he said, " I will pull some for you right now." SCORE!!!! He gave me seven huge books.I posted a few of the papers. (This is only a small fraction of what is in them.) Check them out.

I think I can craft for the next ten years and not use all of what is in them.

Go to your local paint and wallpaper store and see if you might score some for yourself.
