My favorite has got to be Basic Grey with Bo Bunny close behind.

I do love Graphic 45 when I see it at the stores, but unfortunately the line doesn't really fit with my scrapping style.

Some of the ones you're mentioning aren't available in our local stores :(.

I like buying stacks and the DCWV are one of my favorites. I stock up when they're on sale for 40-50% off!

My all-time favorite papers are from BasicGrey. They are called Offbeat and I LOVE the patterns and colors. Cosmo Cricket is another favorite company of mine.

I love Little Yellow Bicycle's embellishments, but not so much their paper. My paper choices are generally tied closely to the topic of the page, in which case topic and design and more important to me than who made it, and if not topic then color, in which case the manufacturer still doesn't really matter.

I'll be unpopular though and say that I do like Sugartree, due to their having a lot of papers that do not shy away from having a theme and generally not making much that is exclusively "kiddie."

If I had to pick one manufacturer to be my favorite it would be G45.

Everything!

Seriously, my usual go-tos are MME, BoBunny, LYB.
I like Graphic 45 and BG too but they aren't always what I can work with.

Crate Paper is another fav but their colors are often too muddy for what I am working on.

I am sure that as others weigh in I will be going "oh yeah that one too".
Could be why I have more pp than 17 scrappers can use.

Never heard of that line...I may need to go look.

Probably a good question would be which ones DON'T I like.
The ones I gravitate to most often are Prima, Webster's Pages, G45, Basicgrey, Kaisercraft, Glitz and My Minds Eye.
I'm always a sucker for any of the round diecuts from My Little Shoebox.
October Afternoon is cool too.

oh and DCWV..but wish the pps were sold separate

and K and Co...and Creative Imaginations


see..shoulda asked what we DON'T like.

none.

My faves are - Echo Park, Bella Blvd, and American Crafts
Bo Bunny, Basic Grey, and My Mind's Eye used to be my faves, but haven't been impressed with their releases over the past couple of years...they've all gone very feminine (pinks, lace, flowers, etc) and I mainly scrap 2 little boys, so that doesn't work for me.

I am kinda picky and scrap "boy" colors... so I really only use some papers out out of various lines... but the companies I find I like most are BoBunny, DCWV, LYB and Basic Grey. My other problem is that I refuse to pay full price on paper, which means buying local and zero selection.

I am however a card stock lover so I would go with Bazzill there.

I just bought Bo Bunny's Weekend Market collection pack ... the papers are beautiful and the colors are fab for boy pages (I have 2 boys and a girl). I think MME's Lost and Found collection (the first one) and Basic Grey's Little Black Dress (despite the name) are also great for masculine pages

Lately my favs have been Echo Park & Simple Stories/Memory Works. I also scrap mostly boys and so those two have had some great lines out lately. This time last year my fav would have been Basic Grey, but I haven't loved anything enough lately that I had to buy it.

If you would have asked this a year ago, I would have said DCWV hands down! BUT I have discovered Webster's Pages, Graphic 45, My Mind's Eye and Bo Bunny!!! There are a few others I like, but these are my favs for now! LOL

I've got too much paper (overwhelming) that I don't look anymore. If I don't see it, I won't miss it. Think my last purchase was this past summer... Webster Pages.

Seriously, once you get over the intial shock of not buying, it's easy!

I have no clue which is my favorite. I like all types of pretty paper. It amazes me that you all know the names. Hopefully, one day, I will be able to recognize the design maker/name of line.

At this moment: Echo park boy lines, October Afternoon Space line, anything with woodgrain & clouds, I use those for the background page.

My favourite embellies: OA little flyers, label stickers, k&CO chipboard stickers.

I mix & match lines, so no rhyme or reason for what could be on my layout.

For me it's a toss up between Graphic 45 and Tim Holtz. It depends alot on the pics I'm working on. I just ordered Graphic 45's Little Darlings and Tropical Traveloque sets.

I bought a stack of this a few weeks ago because I didn't want to pay full price for a stack at Js and I was in a pinch. I used what I needed for cards and will ONLY use it for cards that I know will most likely be tossed. It's cheap for a reason.
