Have you ever looked at a PP collection and hated it, but then some time later, absolutely love it?

This has happened to me a few times recently. I was a Club SEI member, saw the fall releases and thought "meh". I cancelled my club membership, as I wasn't interested. Yesterday, I was surfing and came across the lines again and I love them.

Also, I'm on a big MME kick lately, had a few papers here and there in the past, but now I love it. I must have walked by the Recollections rebranded MME a dozen times in the last few months and never paid it any mind, but now that I'm using more MME, I had to dig out my 40% off coupon and get the rebranded stack.

Am I crazy? Has this happened to you.

That normally happens after I have seen people using it !!!!! Then I have to add it into my 'I want and going to cost me a fortune ' pile

A lot of the recent Basic Grey collections have been like that for me.

Yup! It's part of the scrapping sickness we all have.

I do that also. But mainly with rubber stamps. I'll look through the catalog and see stamp sets that I really don't care for. Then I'll look in the gallery or something and see a card made with it and BAM...I NEED THAT STAMP SET!!!

I've also done it with paper packs too. I'll have a certain "style" that I like and if it doesn't grab my eye in the second I look at the cover, then I don't like it. Then I'll see a bunch of scrapbook pages using the same exact paper pack and it's like I have to run right out to the store and get it.

I think it's a sickness.

Yes - I do this all the time! After I see it put to use in the gallery I often change how I feel about a line.
