Cardstock or patterned paper as a base for your layouts.
Reading the bazzill thread, it occurred to me that several years ago I would have been gutted at not being able to get all those yummy bazzill colours, but now....not so much.
Sassiescrapper mentioned on the patterned paper thread that she recently used PP as a base, which she doesn't do often.
That got me wondering which is more popular with everyone.
I am now very much a patterned paper base girl, and while shopping, will always turn the paper over to see the other side. Chances are, even if I am not fussed on the A side, the (usually more subtle) B side might be great for backgrounds!
That happens a lot!
