So when the Basic Grey Serenade line came out, I admit I wasn't crazy about it. It was nice, but not my taste. So several weeks later I guess it must have grown on me. Now I look at it and I really want. Lucky for me it's on clearance and I was able to grab some.

Do you ever look at a line and at first glance say no, but change your mind later?

Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic. It looked a little drab to me, but I kept seeing it on LOs and it looked better and better each time. So I JUST bought the collection pack for 50% off =)

Same here with 5th & Frolic! I'm a huge Dear Lizzy fan but was not impressed when it got revealed. Now I think it's my favorite Dear Lizzy line ever!

Of course, and the reverse happens too - I'll get all excited about a line and then after a closer inspection realize it isn't for me.

The oppsite happens to me. I buy a line that I think I love and then it sits and sits and I never use it because I realize I never really liked it after all!!

Yes, many times! Sometimes I just have to see it used first.

Yep. All the time. AND, like KBPea, the reverse happens to me a lot also.

Quite a few times! It's always fun to see how my opinions about a line will change from the time I first see it when the sneaks come out from CHA to the time they're released and I start seeing them being used. Lines that don't grab me at first can become one of my favorites, and a line I thought for sure I'd want all of, I might never buy.

I really want EP Sweet Girl but thought All About A Boy was too babyish for my DS8. Then I looked at it more and realized it wasn't. Now I'm excited for their release!

I bought tons of Crate Paper's Farmhouse thinking it was fall themed and I could use it for Fall and Thanksgiving but I found it very difficult. It wasn't what I thought it was. I should have looked at it closer. There are other lines that I found difficult to use.

Many times! I wouldn't purchase it myself, but find it in a kit that I subscribed to and end up loving it!

Yes! Usually after I see how someone used it!

That is totally me. I have a couple of collections that I look at and wonder what I was thinking.

When the whole brand BG came out and was advertised here on Two Peas I didn't like it. But when I saw it at my LSS (Sublime), I loved it! Sublime is still my favorite BG line of all times, but there have been plenty I have loved since then.

Yes both!

I bought Crate Paper's Portrait collection for some wedding photos but have since decided it is too dark and I'm resigning it to the sell/donate pile.

By contrast, I bought Echo Park's Victoria Gardens collection on a whim and when it arrived dismissed it as too floral. I decided to use it for my first attempt project for The Perfect Collection thinking that if it all went wrong it wouldn't matter. By the time the layouts were finished I had fallen in love with the collection and it one of my favourites. The layouts are in my gallery if anyone is interested!

I think The Perfect Collection is great for those paper packs that you have gone off because when the paper is all chopped and in starting points it looks very different!
