I really like this collection and bought the paper pad thinking...great! I'd have all the papers! I've since learned a couple of things.
Pro: The design is on one side of the page so you don't need to pick which side you want to use.
Neither Pro or Con: The paper is lighter weight than the single sheets - not thin paper; just not as heavy.
Con: I happened to get a couple of the single sheets and uh oh. I realized that the colors aren't as bright/vibrant in the pad as the single sheets. And I wasn't getting all the reserve ("B") side designs which were often quieter patterns that coordinated wonderfully.
So, kinda bummed. I'm going to see what I have in my stash to brighten it up and that can take the place of those quieter designs.
