Do you now love that you couldn't stand previously?
I am a patterned paper fanatic. I love all different styles, clean, grungy, muted, bold, bright, flowery or urban.
However, I suspect like most people who start out scrapping, I have a boxful of papers that I look at now and think .... Why? Paper Adventures and K&Co mostly. But, you know what, sometimes these paper companies turn themselves around with the appointment of new designers and a forward thinking philosopy.
For example last year my favourite Christmas papers were by Paper Adventures. I made these cards using their range and it was beautiful, with glittering and embossing it really lifted the whole design of the cards.
And this year I have fallen in love with K&Co. The new Amy Butler Sola range started me off and whilst I was in the shop buying that, I just had to have the sugary, girly and glitzy Sparkly Sweet collection too. Not totally my own personal cup of tea but I just knew that my daughters would both adore seeing their photos on those papers. Then a month or so I discovered the Peppermint Twist range. Oh my! As you can see from my previous posts I have loved using these papers. Love the colours and the funky feel with a slightly retro edge.
And now what do I see online. The Wild Saffron range. Sigh. More yumminess. I am trying very hard to resist but I just know that it will not be long before my will power caves in. I am just hoping that I get a nice little bit of cash from Santa in order to splash out on some.
For some reason I can't find either Peppermint Twist or Wild Saffron on K&Co's home page so here is an image from elsewhere online:
Oh and incidentally my page over at The Collectively Yours challenge blog this week features the K&Co Amy Butler Sola range.
