Quick question for ya'll,

I just bought the SEI Black Orchid stack that I LOVE (but have yet to use) but I LOVE IT.

OH and my DH just bought me a briefcase-folder of 300 pattern papers from Costco that rock. But again, have yet to use ... need some scrapping time!

I have used my Basic Grey color me silly until the last scrap and have even order extra sheets of the single papers too. I've also used a lot of Basic Grey periphery too lately. I have most of the new lines but keep coming back to these.

I'm loving all of the new Basic Grey lines: Boxer, Cupcake, Sultry, Sugared and Archaic.

I also love the new Fancy Pants "About a Boy" collection and the new Cosmo Cricket "Cogsmo" Collection.

I have two boys and love all the new boyish collections that have come out.

I'm a huge DCWV fan, especially they're glittered stuff. Just worked their Glitter Cardstock stack along with the others below:

I used the Crate Paper Avenue paper to the last piece. I'm in the process of finishing up Basic Grey Mellow. I just bought SEI - Madera and am looking forward to using colors and styles that are new for me.

I haven't worked with it yet, but DCWV's Old World Stack is one I even bought the mat stacks and embellies for because it's so wonderful (as in, I love every page of it!).

Love Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey though. Ran out of BG's Blush but am loving CC's Storytime currently.

Also... Autumn Leaves sells a collection called Savannah (in both pp and cs) which I have used A LOT (for cards, minialbums and regular LOs). The cardstock isn't textured, but I don't care. It matches PERFECTLY!

I knew it would be impossible for anyone to have just one favorite. Here are a few of mine:

Oh! I have to add one more which I've used a lot of!

Daisy Bucket Designs "Under the Boardwalk"

I've gotten 4 LOs done with it so far...still have several more to do. It's a problem when you sit looking for the perfect picture for a collection because you don't want to "waste" it on something less than "perfect".

Ok, not to sound silly...but where do you all buy these types of paper packs? I see that they are in the superstore here, but on a budget, they are kind of pricey (I am thinking "I need a coupon!"). I just have M's and a very small LSS in my area so I guess I am kind of limited on where I can shop! Not that I really need to know since I kind of promised my hubby that I wouldn't buy any more paper until I used up the ton that I already have!

I buy my DCWV papers on sale, Rachel's mom. Only way to do this. M's carries this line of papers and will periodically have 40-50% off on this line.

I get my DCWV at Michael's when they have them 40-50% off. I recently bought the All Occasion Glitter Stack for only $10 when it was on sale. As far as the Basic Grey that I linked in my previous post, I bought the 6x6 pads of each one except for the Boxer Collection and I got the 12x12 collection in that one. The 6x6 pads are only about $5-6 each and if I really happen to like a certain pattern, then I will pick up a few extra sheets at my LSS. I normally don't buy the whole collections, just a few sheets here and there.

I love working with all my papers. I don't have a favorite except maybe Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket (like that new set--hadn't seen that yet). I recently bought some new Crate Paper (which I've never had before) because it was really different and pretty.

I use anything on my family's LOs whether they're girls/boys or men/women. Hey, they get flowers, glittery brads, flowery paper. I don't do the male paper/female paper thing.

I have lots of favorites!!! I have discovered Basic Grey , and LOVE the LilyKate Collection...Making Memories' Noteworthy...and like Bling Fairy Vivian, I, too, am a huge fan of DCWV. I love their cardstocks with the white core, perfect for tearing and/or inking...

*blissful and loves the scrappy goodness*

I also love that Bazzill has colors that coordinate beautifully with the Basic Grey ...

Agreed....or I only buy then when they're on clearance at J's or M's (normally J's). I got the Christmas Glitter Stack right after Xmas for $5, and the chipboard that coordinates for only like $3.

I accidentally bought the Old World Stack for full price. Still kicking myself over that BUT...my husband was fully responsible (he picked it up and paid for it) because he knew I wanted it to use for an album for his parents (which he roped me into doing).

Hello. My name is Ami and I'm addicted to Basic Grey . (Hi, Ami.)

Seriously, I don't know if I can pick ONE favorite. I am really loving Scarlet's Letter, Boxer and Periphery lately.

I am loving all the new paper packs out there for boys! I've always wanted a girl, because I thought girls would be much more fun to scrap... Now I see all this great boy stuff, and I'm just loving it. I just got some Cosmo Cricket , and in my SB goody pack I got some Piggy Tales ! Now I have to find more!

I had to have Basic Grey 's new Archaic. Had to. I used to be a dinosaur fanatic... I even contemplated being a palentologist. I know its kind of a boy paper but I've used it on 5 of the past 6 layouts I just made. I can't get enough of it! But pretty much anything Basic Grey I like anyway.

I'm also really digging DCWV's Rockstar and Pets stack. I made up a few samples for my J's (I work there) and loved how versatile they are.
