What papers do you like/ use?

Post by Guest on Sun 3 Jan 2010 - 18:38

I have been making some cards and things and looking through my papers and they are all so similar without me even realising it.

Lots of blues and purples, small patterns and loads of Daisy Bucket and Bo Bunny.

So, I was just wondering what kind of papers do you like?

I like Bo Bunny papers but have not got a particular fav brand, and did tend to buy pink/mauve a lot but have gradually weaned myself off them lol. Think stripes or checks are probably most useful.

I too have weaned myself off the 'pretty' stuff; I used to like buying it, but struggled to actually use the stuff.

Favourite now has to be Basic Grey . I also like 7 Gypsies, and have some great K & Co stuff; it's not all flowery.

A Trip Down Memory Lane have a great selection of papers if you fancy a browse...

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

I don't have any particular favourites - more likely to go for
individual papers arther than a particular brand or collection. I use some
of the lighter designs that I won't use for backgrounds, as inserts for
cards I have made.

Use or buy?
I like to buy K&Co most ranges and twelve by twelve, Rouge de garance, feely papers too with flock or pearly papers.
I like to use any of those old papermania things we all bought when we couldn't get anything else, and things that aren't to my taste. Surprisingly I can somehow often make them look Ok. Perhaps they're ok when there's just a small bit of it.

I don't have a firm favourite either, I'm liking some of the basic grey and Bo Bunny have some lovely papers, Cloud 9 have some beauties out at the moment, I love the Christmas range and chocolate chalet range.

I used to love K & Co. but they've gone more classic, either that or my taste has changed.

What papers do I use?

I don't USE them I collect them and stroke them and put them away neatly in their boxes but not USE!

Going to sit in a dark room to recover from the shock!

My Mind's Eye, BoBunny, American Crafts and some sets of BG but less as time has gone on and likewise I tend to buy and not use which is just ridiculous, I have a beautiful Bo Bunny set and have used one sheet!

Goodness I don't have particular favourites I guess, though i do like my pinks and purples. I find that if the mood takes and I sit to make a card its nearly all those colours.

What I did realise over Christmas though, was that my bit draws, with odds of card and paper etc were too full, so I sorted them out, cut some shapes in prep and am now determined to go through each draw and reduce the oddments, I will dig out stickers and embellies etc to make them.
