So, I never really did the designer collections. I didn't feel like I got the most bang for my buck, so I settled for DCWV. While it has beautiful stacks and I will NEVER stop buy from them, I have found that I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE with Carta Bella!!! About 2 weeks ago or so, I ordered 2 kits from two peas. I had fell in love with Merry and Bright and wanted to use it for my December Daily album. Then I saw that if I spent 50, I would get a free gift, so I added Beautiful Moments to my cart as well as Bo Bunny's valentine set and some stickers to go with it. I haven't had a chance to play with Bo Bunny yet, but in the mean time, Carta Bella had another giveaway on their blog and I entered. I won! I just received the Traditions collection kit in the mail and let me tell you, that stuff is BEAUTIFUL! When I got M & B, I was so worried about cutting into the beautiful paper, so I didn't. I waited until I absolutely HAD to do it before I did. Once I did, there was no stopping me! Now, I can't wait to work with the other two kits I have! I may go broke buying the designer stuff now that I have done it once!!!

I just got my first Carta Bella this week after finally being able to see it in person at the craft store. It has a beautiful texture to it, like Crate Paper. I love the colors too. I got 4 sheets of Winter Fun:



Hexagons, brown polka dots, and 2 sheets of the teal pattern to use as background cardstock.

Merry and Bright is awesome! In my gallery you will find my december daily album... that i have started, and every page has at least a little of the merry and bright collection on it...

i haven't used the beautiful moments or traditions yet, but i plan on cutting into them this month (december)...

i have never used crate paper, so i don't know what the weight of their paper is, but carta bella is AWESOME!!!

I just used my first Carta Bella Traditions paper to decorate my first printer's tray, see HERE, and I love how it turned out. The quality of the paper makes it really easy to work with.


Go for it!

Uh oh....you may have found your gateway drug. Today it's Carta Bella...tomorrow it could be Lawn Fawn and that may lead to Echo Park!

It's a slippery slope, my friend. A slippery slope...
