Did anyone use, or is currently using, October Afternoon's Very Merry collection for a PL-type DD/JYC?

I'm looking for some inspiration. "Silent Night" is nice but I think I like "Very Merry" better. I wish I could find one of those mini-kits from last year, but I'm sure no one has one by now!

Several retailers/sellers are still selling the VM stuff so I am thinking of buying it.

Links, if anyone has them! Thanks!!!

Those are great; thank you!

I just love that collection because it reminds me of when I was really little. They got that vintage look just right!

If you do a google search

"images of October Afternoon Very Merry" You should get lots of inspiration all in one big group. I do this often when I want to see LOs using particular lines of paper. It's amazing!

Here's my JYC from 2012 on my blog. It's all posted out of order, but I used Very Merry and a bit of older OA stuff throughout. It's not PL-style, but maybe it will give you some ideas anyway.

Missed out on the sale as I didn't see my messages till Sunday a.m.

I'm going to ask on the FSOT forum if anyone has a kit they want to sell.

If you watch for it, they have a sister deals site that will have the same thing on sale a couple of days later.

I am such an airhead.

I meant "Make it Merry," not "Very Merry."

Peachy Cheap is featuring glitter. I'm confused.

I used last year's Very Merry kit from OA as well as items from the Make It Merry collection for my December Not-So-Daily Album last year.

I bought the entire collection last year in hopes to use it for last year's photos.... but I have fallen out of love with it for some reason and now I'm thinking of selling it as one big lot. I've got tons of paper and embellies

@knitwitrosie...I did the same thing but not until I was using it. Ever think you're going to love a collection and then have trouble being happy with your creation? I did that with "Make it Merry." But I am going to use up my stash b/c every time I put it in my stack to sell at the local consignment sale I have second thoughts and put it back where it was with Christmas stash. Also am getting some more of the collection in my santa sack so that will help breathe some new life into my stash. We shall see.

@Jill...OMG that is one of my favorite DD, or not-so-daily in this case, albums i've seen yet! LOVE IT!


Melanie - If I scrap you, I love you.
