Being a huge fan of Basic Grey, I'm finding myself with a lot of distressed looking/ muted patterned papers. I actually like that look, but now I'm looking for some fun and bright patterned papers in basic geometric prints (ie. stripes, dots, etc) to add to my collection. I'm not a big fan of American Crafts (not sure why). What are some of your favorite papers that are fun and bright... please recommend. TIA!

Here are just a few. Some are older but Bo Bunny, creative imaginations and kaiser craft I usually find brighter colors and more boy colors.

I am starting to really like Best creations, the colors are brighter than shown here and with the glitter they are that much prettier. but what is nice is if you don't want the glitter the other side is usually flat.

Just a few ideas....

also try american crafts these are just a few of the ones i quickly searched in the super store. Plus many are on clearance in anticipation of the new lines coming out - a great (inexpensive) way to experiment with some new styled papers to see if you like them...

I'm a BG fan, too, and I also love Cosmo Cricket. It still has some of the distressed look to it but with bright, happy colors.

Wow!!! Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions - can't believe what I've been missing. I'm really liking the Doodle Bug and October Afternoon stuff (unfortunately I haven't seen much of them at my LSS). I guess I will be shopping at the super store here later today. But now, I think I'll head out to M's or J's to get me some DCWV . Thanks again - you ladies are awesome!
