We all seem to have certain designers or brands that we are drawn to, so I'd you had to take a gamble without seeing it before had what would you get?
Normally I would say OA but sadly I have cherry picked their last few lines. Right now I would have to go with any EP boy line, they always do such a fabulous job!

Dear Lizzy or Jen Allyson's MME lines - while I rarely buy every last thing from either, it's usually for variety in my albums and/or financial reasons . I don't think there has been anything in the last year or so from either that I actually disliked or definitely wouldn't use.

|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:10:17 AM|If I had to go in completely blind, I'd probably go with OA or MME. (And since I have seen a few sneak peeks, I know I'd be quite happy with the result! )

Gosh...that's a hard one. I'm VERY picky!
I'd probably say Jillibean Soup. They usually have colorful collections and easy to use patterns.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:12:00 AM|
Bella Blvd. for sure! I have only had one collection from them, Thankful, but I never created a fall or Thanksgiving layout with it. They have such great "B" side papers and the patterns are so versatile. I love Bella Blvd.!

Not being able to see it, I would have to go with Echo Park and Crate Paper... Even when it's paper I wouldn't buy, I still find it usable from these 2 lines.
Cheez-its make me happy...
Loc: Illinois, but I'm a Badger girl at heart!
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:16:01 AM|I'm pretty picky! I might buy Crate, though I only "love" one of their new releases. I also usually like OA - the B-sides always save me if the front is not my style! Hmmm...that's about it.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:17:06 AM|I would say any Echo Park boy line. Love them all!
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:17:13 AM|
I would have to say Echo Park and Amy Tangerine.
Is this an instrument of torture or communication?
Loc: Long Island
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:19:39 AM|
Amy Tangerine. Always usable for my style and photos.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:21:58 AM|
I think I could do that with most Echo Park. Love all their goods.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:23:37 AM|
Crate Paper. Looking back they always come up with something I love.

I'd take Crate & October Afternoon site unseen!
I always end up loving all of it from them.

|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:25:45 AM|
I definitely agree with the EP boy lones! Always love those. I could also go with most of the BB stuff - so yummy.

OA even though I rarely use the papers I buy. I would know that they were cute and went together great.

OA for sure!

I think that I would also buy and use Dear Lizzy without seeing it, it's reliably lovely.

Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine for sure. I'm sure I'm forgetting something.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 10:58:58 AM|Without doubt - Pink Paislee, Prima, Crate Paper.. Dear Lizzy by AC and ILS as well
|Posted: 1/12/2013 11:02:53 AM|
Looking back at my stash, it would most likely be Dear Lizzy. Her stuff fits well into my current colour palettes.

Simple stories, MME and OA. I used to be that way with Basic Grey, haven't been as excited about their lines lately.

Amy Tangerine. But, honestly, I'd never buy anything sight unseen.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 12:32:14 PM|I usually never use everything from one collection when I buy one, so I have become very picky ! I don't see any brand from which I would buy without thinking.

I used to have a few companies I felt this way about, but lately I'd have to say Fancy Pants and Lily Bee. So many of the companies I love have gone in a completely different direction this show.

Honestly, no... I would not buy sight-unseen.
Even when I really love the past few lines of any company or designer, there comes a time when I just don't like it so much, and I skip that collection.
IF I HAD TO: I would stick with American Crafts. Their B-sides are always universal, and clean, in case I did not like the A side.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 4:33:16 PM|Without a shred of doubt or hesitation MME! them so much! I haven't disliked anything they've put out in the last 2 yrs. No other even comes close for me...
