What is your favorite collection pack? What packs are currently in trend?
It seems much more economical to purchase the packs so thought I'd see what you all are buying.

I tend to love anything Crate Paper, and Echo Park is getting to be a new favorite of mine. One of my favorite things about getting the collection pack is the extra die cuts, etc, already coordinated.

I love Crate Paper and Basic Grey.

|Posted: 12/28/2012 2:57:35 PM|I love Crate Paper. I just ordered their new Fourteen collection. I love their collections because they include the border stickers and the diecut page.
I also love the Echo Park collections! You just can't go wrong with Echo Park.

Used to be October Afternoon.
But now I'd say Basic Grey and Simple Stories.

SN@P in terms of what I love and use, but CP Storyteller has been the collection to beat as of late... although I don't use it as much as I'd like.

Usually Crate Paper packs for me. I will say that sometimes I initially choose a pack but discover the price is the same or more than buying individually. There are usually a couple sheets or stickers I don't 'love' in a pack so I've been picking & choosing more lately.

Love Love Love Bella Blvd. Their papers are so versatile, even the themed ones because the "b" side of the papers will work for any layout. I scrap with their "b" side papers almost exclusively and have used them on layouts about my grandkids, my mom and everyday events. I can't wait for CHA to see what they have and what I will be purchasing. I echo (pun intended) Echo Park. Now that there is a new designer at Webster Pages that is a little more graphic in style and less frilly I will be getting that collection soon.

My favorite packs are October Afternoon, Crate Paper, and My Mind's Eye. I usually always use a coupon on them, so they are usually always a good deal even if there are a few papers I may not buy individually.

I don't buy the "packs" because I never like every pattern, so I'd rather just pay for the part I will use... that said, there are of course exceptions to the rules.
This year those exceptions were: Echo Park's This & That Charming and Amy Tangerine's Ready Set Go.

Echo Park!!! I'm part of a club kit that included an entire collection pack. I'm always surprised when I find myself using colors or patterns I wouldn't have picked up in a single. I also love Simple Stories but their lines are REALLY expensive for me.

American Crafts which includes Amy Tangerine and Crate paper!

I am a big fan of Echo Park. Bright, cheerful colors and versatile patterns.
They remind me a lot of Scenic Road which was my favorite manufacturer for years.

I love Crate Paper and Echo Park. I always buy the collection packs. Also October Afternoon but I don't buy every collection and sometimes just pick and choose several papers in the line.

I agree with Susank12. Bella Blvd is my absolute favorite. I not only buy the packages, I use them!
