Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic is soft colors but lovely.
Amy Tangerine has a new one coming out soon called Yes, Please that I am DYING to get my hands on. Her Sketchbook line from last year is awesome if you like bright colors, and her Ready, Set, Go has warmer/brown tones and is also really cute.
The store here just got in My Mind's Eye today, which has some incredible stuff. I tend to pick and choose with them.
Crate Paper has the new Maggie Holmes line coming out that also looks incredible.
If you're scrapping for boys, Echo Park has two new cute ones - Scoot for littler ones and All About A Boy (early Fe for older boys.

I am really into the new Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection. (except for the horses) I find that if I buy everything from a collection I don't use it all or there are some bits I'm not that fond of. I plan to pick and choose what I like from many collections.

I agree that the first question is "What are you scrapping?"
My last collection purchase was Echo Park's "Boy's Life." It's an older line, I bought it at Hobby Lobby. I bought it because I have a baby DGS and had already used one sheet of Boy's Life to do a layout about him, and I also thought I might use it with pix of some older boys I know. (But so far I am putting a huge dent in it scrapping DGS.)
The collections I am looking at now include Frith and Frolic for some pix of DGD, and trying to decide between several Christmas collections, which two I will buy. One with traditional colors, one with brighter colors, depending on what part of the holidays I will scrap.
