Is there one large kit I should look for or does it mean you clicked one of each item released or what?

Thank you

I typically buy the collection pack. They always include one of each paper in the collection but depending on the company, you might also get a sticker sheet, an alpha sheet, sometimes a cut-apart or journaling cards. If the collection packs are all sold out, then I might go ahead and purchase each paper separately but it's often a tiny bit more expensive.

After that I usually check out the extras that go along with the collection - label stickers, brads, chipboards, etc. and decide if and what I want on top of the collection pack.

So, which collections are you currently eyeing?

I usually mean that I bought a bunch of items from the collection, not necessarily the whole collection or a collection pack. So I guess for me it's clicking "Add to Cart" for a bunch of individual items, not a kit.

Usually it means I bought the collection pack, but sometimes it means I bought as many of the papers as I could find.

I mean, I bought the entire collection piece by piece, embellishments & all. Not just the paper pack.

I was under the impression when people say they bought the collection, that they bought the entire thing.

I personally buy the collection packs. They are wrapped together in one package. The ones I buy most often are from Simple Stories. They include all of the cut apart sheets and some pp with other designs, generally there may be a few additional not included. They also have a full size sticker sheet and a full size sheet with a few different alphas and some word stickers.

For me, it means I bought the collection pack, and maybe some of the embellishments to go with it.

It could mean I bought some individual sheets and some embellishments, if the pack of paper was sold out.

For me, it means I bought the collection kit. A lot of times I'll also buy some dimensional items that go along with the collection as well.

I take it to mean that either someone bought a Collection Pack or that they bought the entire line or darn close.


I rarely buy a full collection, even in lines I really like. I prefer to pick and choose, doubling up on some items and skipping others all together.

For me it means that I went through each available item in the collection one by one and purchased the items I liked. OR I purchased the paper pad in the collection if I found myself liking ALL the papers as it is usually cheaper that way. I know for some folks it means buying EVERY single item in a new release but I've never done that...not yet.

I usually buy the collection pack and extra of the same embellishments in the pack and the other embellishments not included in the pack. If I really like the line, I want it all!

When I buy a "collection" in my mind that means I bought one of every item in that line! I often do this if I really like the collection.. I used to buy whole collections thinking I can only scrap and match things if I had the entire line, but after learning and getting experience I now know I don't need it all to create beautiful work!

A whole collection, or line, from Graphic 45 also includes clear stamps most of the time lately.
