This is a great paper pad! I almost didn't buy it, because I read a review that said the color was poor and not heavy paper. I bought the paper pad and some of the individual double sided paper to see the difference. The paper pad is as heavy, if not heavier than the double sided paper. I also read the color wasn't as good. It is very slightly "more dull" when you have them side by side. Hardly noticeable. I am really happy with the paper pad. Since it is one sided, I don't have to pick which side I like better. It is a huge paper that ad.
The papers in this pad are appealing and versatile. I love the designs, particularly the cameras and the suitcases. My only complaint is that the colors aren't as rich as the separately sold, double-sided papers. I recognize that's probably about economy, and I'm still psyched to have them. I'd recognize this paper pad to anyone who loves this collection--as I do--and would like to have the whole variety of papers.
But, overall, I love supporting Shimelle and her work. I have a couple of favs. I haven't got any of the individual sheets, so I don't know how the colours stand up in the pad.
