Do you prefer using cardstock or patterned paper as your base?

Definitely cardstock. patterned paper just seems too much sometimes.

I have used both. I like plain cardstock like the ones with BG and Cosmo papers...they look "old" and "distressed"...I haven't found a plain cardstock other than those that I really like yet!

I'm curious/confused, do you mean cardstock that MATCHES Basic Grey and cosmo pp? I don't consider any of BC cardstock.

Depends on what I'm scrapping. But I tend to start with a plain base.

I've used both, but have to admit to being a PP fanatic! When I use PP for the base, I try to mat the photos in a solid cardstock. That gives the whole LO a little more weightiness.

I think she may be talking about the solid colors that come in the BG pack that are distressed. I love using those as my backgrounds too and run out too quickly!

I prefer to start with PP, but I ALWAYS mat in plain CS to give it an accent color and to not draw the eye directly to the pp.

I always use cardstock, although sometimes it is completely covered in pp or other solid paper/cardstock.

I have used pp most of the time, but I've been noticing that a lot of the lo's that I really like are cs background, and pp is used on the mats and accents, so I'm beginning to change.

I think if I have anything that could be identified as a signature or style it would be that I almost always place my page on a piece of cardstock and leave a 1/4 border around the whole lay out. To me, it frames it in and leaves a finished look.
