Number one is absolutely October Afternoon.

I went so bonzo buying their Holiday Style, and even bought the 8x8 which I've never even considered buying 6x6 or 8x8, just so I can have MORE of it. I've also bought quite a bit of Midway, and I'll confess that I bought 3 of the alphabet sticker sheets alone.

I can't think of another manufacturer that I hoard, but there have been several collections I have a hard time using the last of because I can't get it anymore. The first one that comes to mind was a Fancy Pants summer line from 2 summers ago. I've have every single scrap saved.

I'm not brand loyal at all. If I don't like a collection, I don't buy it. Regardless of brand. But if I love it, I can collect at least 6 sheets of a paper design. lol!

That said, I've mostly hoarded papers from October Afternoon and Webster's Pages. You know, that gorgeous paper with the doors from last year's Botanical Christmas collection, I have at least 8 sheets of that one.

Its a tie between MME and OA for first, and Crate Paper comes in a close second

#1 for sure isMME-I organize by manufacturer so I can easily see which manufacturers I hoard!
I have a lot of October Afternoon-but I don't feel like I hard it-I don't have any issue using it. I have a ton of SC, but that cuz I've gotten their kit for almost 2 years! Lots of Crate and I've been collecting Authentique as well-love the texture of their paper!

I have a whole Cropper Hopper full of Sassafras, but since they are "no longer with us"... The other two big ones are Cosmo Cricket and Fancy Pants. Starting to build up a pretty good amount of Graphic 45 and Echo Park too though.

I am not much of a hoarder, but I have a box with lots of K & Co and DCWV stacks I've only used pieces of.

On the loose paper side, you'd think it was whatever my newest love is, which right now would be Simple Stories.

While somewhat controversial at the moment, I have to say October Afternoon. I know they don't deliver the same as the other companies, but I really love the vintage things that they come up with! I have to make sure it's really something special before I'll use my OA stash!

I'm currently hoarding the Fancy Pants Little Sport Collection.

I also have a lot of MME, but not this year's releases - too "vintage" for my taste.

I also love me some Imaginisce.

Bo Bunny. It's a sickness.

I have no problem chopping into pristine new 12x12 papers... unless they're Bo Bunny. I have a whole container of BB papers and coordinating embellishments. I get it out and flip through it lovingly, but I can't bring myself to USE it.

I've really got to get over it. At this point, I could probably do a whole year's worth of LO's from my Bo Bunny box. And what a lovely album it would make!!

I'm not really a hoarder--I do actually at least TRY to use the stuff I buy. It makes me feel good about buying more. But I've got absolutely huge collections of Echo Park and Simple Stories right now and I always want more!

It's a bad habit but I have a huge hoard of Cosmo Cricket. In fact more than half my stash of patterned papers is Cosmo Cricket. I am quickly becoming fond of WRMK partly because of the look but mostly to be honest because I can find their stuff the places I shop. If my favorite scrap haunts don't have the new CC in stock soon I just may pass on the lines all together and that would be a first for me. I have purchased some or all of every collection they have ever put out.

Not a specific brand, but I've been hoarding beach papers and embellies for awhile now waiting for our upcoming trip so I can use them.

Also been hoarding the Ella Blue paper packs until we go on the perfect trip so I can use them.

OA. I also,use the heck out of it, but I typically buy at least 3 pieces of the papers I love most. I do have a bit of their cloud paper from one of their first lines I can't seem to cut into because I love it so very much! If I could find 25 pieces of it somewhere I would buy it in a heartbeat!
I just love OA and most of my favorite layouts use it.
