I have this stack in 8x8 as well, which I bought first because I planned to use it to cut out letters, accents, etc. on my cricut to use on various pages and sometimes as mats. I liked it so much, especially the fact that the glitter doesn't rub off the page and get everywhere like other glitter stock I've used, that I went and bought the 12x12 stack so I could use it as the base color on layouts as well. Some of the colors are prettier than the others and I was disappointed that there isn't really a 'red' in the stack but otherwise, I'll buy another when this one's gone.

Very nice in color and quality, this does not rub off like glitter papers of the past - very vivid colors, you do have to make sure that you adhere anything with either liquid adhesive, a few stitches or brads as anything else will pop off - but a small price to pay for glitter that does not fall off and to the bottom of your page. Best way I can think to describe the nice texture is the effect of lightly embossed glitter, for a whole 12x12!!
This DCWV stack has a great variety of colors. The paper is really blinged out...tons of glittery goodness. The only thing to be wary of is that the glitter doesn't really give dry adhesive anywhere to stick, so if you adhere a pic or piece of CS or pp on top with a dry adhesive, it might fall off! I have started using a brad or stitching for adhering papers to this glittery CS and KI gloo or other liquid adhesive for embellies and the like. I'd recommend this paper stack because of it's variety and the amount of bling you can achieve with it.
I love this cardstock so much! It definetly gives you layouts
that extra sparkle. The colors are bright and the glitter does not come off and get over your hands.
The only cons are the cardstock does smell a bit and sometimes your patterned paper does not stay on top of
the layout. I have found to use clear tacky glue, the roller
adhesives do not stay well enough and it works well.
