This is not normal, every day Daisy D's. I think they were "testing the waters" or "stretching the limits" with this paper pack. It has the fun colors that Daisy D's always has, but it has some really "different" designs. I like it, but I think it will take a stretch of my imagination to use some of it -- but I look at it as a challenge. Try it. It's a fun paper pack!
I like to bright colors and use of abstractions. I do not like the description "cardstock" it is not cardstock by my defination. This is a fairly lightweight paper in beautiful colors, easily adapted to many paper craft uses.
When I first saw this pack I thought, uh no thanks! But when I got them in a kit I was amazed at how pretty they actually are in person. They soft colors and fun designs are very inspiring. That being said, I did find them a little bit difficult to work with. I really had to think "outside of the box" with these! If you like a challenge, these papers are for you!
