What's your fave paper range?

Post by Lorraine on Thu 6 Nov 2008 - 22:20

What papers do you love. Whether for cardmaking or scrapping, I'm sure we all have favourites. It could be a range, or a particular colour or even a particular finish.

For me, it was always Basic Grey, but....Crate is now taking the lead.

I also love K & Co papers. Some of their ranges are to die for.

Colour wise, although I'm using lots of brights and pastels for Mia LO's, I actually prefer muted, vintage tones.

Basic Grey 'fusion' or 'Stella Ruby' I adore

nearly all K and Co.

pretty pleased with my new crate papers, and I love the one Lorraine used on the layout with the waterfall

love the cosmo cricket ones that Bobs used recently, but I havent got any. Ditto mums 'blue awning'.

In the Uk I splurged on two divine sheets of Bo Bunny that are too delicious to ever use.

anything striped is good, distressed is good and mottled is good too.

Actually, i adore almost all patterned paper. i just love it all. Could i have say, a top 10?

I still love BG, but I think Cosmo Cricket just has the edge for me now. I also love some of the 7 Gypsies papers and some of the Rusty Pickle stuff too.

My favourites were the K & Co Tim Coffey and Brenda Walton more when they did the Romanza, Blue Poppies & Daffodil designs.
I think Making Memories are my next one, loved the Cosmopolitan, and more recent 5th Avenue etc.
With not really buying much lately I got out of the habit of looking through the new papers.

I've just discovered and bought, Creative Imaginations Asian Fusion range. If you like oriental, you'll love them. Bobs, I think you'd kill for them Mr Green

Brenda Walton's Mira collection is also one of my faves. I've used some to make one of my books, bought replacement papers and now won't part with or use them. Laughing Hard One piece is one of those filigree cut ones and no way can I use it. I'd need a really good subject for a LO to put them on.

Daisy Bucket, K & Co Blue Awning (no Mia, you can't filch it from me!!!), Crate Paper and latterly I have been using some wonderful Stampin' Up papers which I won in a competition and the surface of them is to die for - all colour matched too, which is essential for me.

Well I have actually used three bits of it Lorraine - it is so lovely to have on a layout and all looks so classy too!

I like loads of brands- I think we all love papers - after all they are the basis of most
paper crafting, whether it be cards or scrapping.

As a cardmaker I tend to love my Doodlebug too - some of the American Crafts and Crate papers are nice for cards too. I do love many of the Basic Grey papers, but they don't really lend themselves to cardmaking!

Oh, forgot about DCWV and also Rusty Pickle.
