I have found that I prefer to use a lot of solid paper or cardstock or those that are lightly or softly patterned. For those of you who use a lot of solids or light patterns, which collections do you use or where to find your paper? Locally, I am limited on what is available and I guess I am going to resort to buying online. I am really trying to get better about incorporating more patterns/different patterns - as I have a lot of cute papers, I just not confident about putting them together. **Looking to the Gallery for patterned paper inspiration**

I love Bo Bunny Double Dot papers -- they have a subtle pattern and go with just about everything! They have TONS of colors too.

Also some of the Prima papers are double-sided and have nice subtle patterns on the back.

I also like the Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock. It's a little more subtle than the Bo Bunny Dots/

You may also like the BasicGrey cardstock. It has a gorgeous, lightly-patterned, distressed look. It's like the few sheets you get in one of their collection packs, only now you can buy an entire pack of just those kinds of sheets.

Alot of the Fancy Pants papers have great opposite sides for this too. I use them alot, along with Basic Grey. Always look at the opposite sides of patterned papers...you never know what treasures you'll find!
