I recently purchased a bunch of the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss line. I am a little disappointed in the colors. They just look kind of cheap to me - colors are shallow. Hard to explain whatni mean - but it's like they didn't use enough ink say compared to a MME paper. Are all the lines like this??

I wonder if you got a bad batch? I have the entire line and feel like the colors are very nice ... similar to all other scrapbooking lines.
Now they don't have the texture of MME papers. Maybe that is the difference you're seeing visually?

I wonder this also. I have almost all the papers from that line and they are beautiful. Or maybe it's a preference thing. Do you prefer brighter colors?
I wonder if you got a bad batch?

Could it be the lack of texture that you find distasteful?

I do love the texture of MME but I think it's more the color of these. It's hard to describe but it just seems cheap, like they went light on the ink. It's not really the brightness but the depth.
Maybe it's just me. Haha.

I love that line and don't think that at all. It is more muted than most Simple Stories though.
What are you looking at?

I love the muted colors of this line, it's beautiful! I think maybe you got a bad batch, I'm sure you could contact SS about it.

Are the Snap and other series the same color scheme tone wise? I use the snap and totally love the colors so I don't know by comparison since I only ordered those through 2peas site. Interested if anyone has this info.

I think I agree with the OP. I got one of tbe kits and when it arrived, I felt the colors weren't saturated enough, and yes, sort of cheap looking. Kind of like tbe printer didn't have enough ink in it? The designs are very pretty however.
