Do you guys buy paper stacks? (not cs) The DCWV stacks are always on sale for half off and I think about it but then always decide against it. Do you find them to be a good deal? The reason I always change my mind is I'm thinking how many LOs am I really going to do for a particular theme (like Christmas for example)? I'm typically a paper hand-picker -- one sheet at a time specifically for a certain LO or b/c I just LOVE a certain pattern. Just wondering what others' thoughts are on these stacks.

I don't buy all the stacks, but I do buy ones that I'll use most of. I never pay full price for them, always wait for them to be on sale or use a coupon.

I am a dcwv junkie... and when I don't buy dcwv i still buy paper packs. I'm not a "by the sheet" paper buyer. I probably do have more than I'll ever use in my life. LOL But at the same time.. it's kinda nice to have 3 of the same pattern and a lot of one theme when you have BIG album projects or multiple of the same thing as gifts or something, kwim?

I personally love dcwv stacks and just don't have the decision making skills that I see as neccessary in buying paper by the sheet... so i get stacks. Plus, it makes mixing and matching A LOT easier!!! And you still have options, I have found.

Not only do I get the PP stacks but I will get the coordinating CS stacks (small stacks) to use for matting. Most fit exactly on a 4x6 photo.
And yea, I get them when there are Coupons or sales. J's is a reasonably priced place.
But sometimes their stuff is gone over so much, so at times I order from this site instead.
Cause me wuvs sb.com .

DCWV Paper Stacks are one of my very most favorite products out there! (Have = Far East , Retro, Autumn & Summer Stack, Pocket Full of Posies & Nana's Kids...Wish List = The Christmas Stack)

I like that you get a large variety of themes & colors, not just limited to the holidays. You can also use them for cardmaking & color-coordinated themed paper projects. Lastly, I also find that it's a great deal for the price, the variety & or the quality of the paper included!

OMG! Dawn! I totally got hooked on the mat stacks, too! Thank goodness for J's sales on dcwv stuff all the time. it makes it such a great buy. Oh, and I will get multiples of the 12x12 cs packs that come out each season. such great colors and texture and for a much better deal that Bazzill , I think.

I went to J's to get the studio G christmas $ stamps and had to put blinders on when I walked past the DCWV 40% off sale. I do not need anymore paper at the moment, but they were calling my name.

True, but I NEED to not go over my CC limit. And hopefully next month I'll have racked up enough reward points for the 325 sheets of Bazzill that I've been saving for. And I NEED to use up some of the new stacks I bought last month. Otherwise I'm going to need more storage for it all!

I buy the stacks. I like mixing papers. I can let the kids use the papers without worrying about the cost. I can play with the papers and not be concerned about ruining them. Sometimes the paper is exactly right for a project. I've brough the stacks to all night crops and been able to give someone something they needed.

I buy stacks and individual papers. DCWV are nice bc you don't have to get them at a lss and with the coupon or on sale they're a great deal!

i buy the stacks that i will use the most papers out of. when you break it down to individual costs, they are cheaper than buying other papers, even if those were on sale. plus, they will sometimes give you a repeat of a certain pattern in the stack, so if you goof up or really like that page, you have more.

Big archival safe storage boxes for photos made by Creative Memories. They hold 2400 photos and have 12 compartments that can come out.

PM me if you're still curious.
