Ok, I have to ask this.
I still consider myself new to the scrap world and when I started a couple years ago, I could tell looking at the paper which company it is, more or less. They all had their distinctive style. And now with some collections I can't tell if it's Webster pages, or Basic Grey, or Studio Calico, etc.
Partly it's because they follow the same trends or collaborate with same designers. But still, it's bugging me that I have to look for manufacturer name instead of guessing
Am I the only one?

Definitely noticing it more these days since alot of what I buy is under the same umbrella: American Crafts. With SC, Crate, Pebbles, Amy Tangerine, and Dear Lizzy all manufactured by them, I am noticing more and more that it is hard to distinguish who is who.

I'm not liking that I went away from scrapping and the boards for a year or so when life got busy. And just as you're saying, I can't tell what manufacturer is who just by looking at the papers, and I miss that. I'm really missing Scenic Route - I was just getting into their graphic kind of style and then they went away...Fancy Pants used to look different - just two off the top of my head...
