They have several paper pads that have been "rebranded" and are new. I also saw places for the new DCWV stacks.

I really don't care for the "treatments" on this kind of paper... I wonder why they feel the need to glitter and gloss everything?? Anybody know why they do this??

I have bought a "few" stacks, but only on great clearance because of this.

I saw somewhere that they had new stacks. Are they in the normal stack area? Can you remember which ones they are?

I also don't get all of the "treatment". Sometimes a line just doesn't need it.

I like the glitter, and other treatments, not keen on the ones that are actually glossy all over. But I do like this manufacturer's paper a lot. But my style is way different so for me it works, I can seen how it would not work for the current more trendy style going on right now.

I saw TCs world traveler in 12x12 and HS sugar chic in 12x12... Both were pads with glitter/ gloss, etc. everything old is new again when it's single sided.

Because they're "so fun." If you watch the videos, you'll know what I mean about them being so fun." Send them a comment. I always send comments if I have what "I think" is a valid suggestion or complaint. My kids think I'm a pain in the butt, but I feel they would/should appreciate comments, suggestions, etc., from a consumer.

Well maybe some places don't.

Yes! I'm excited to see what pads were re branded.. I was just at "a boys" house.. Yesterday and they didn't have any new dcwv or stacks they still didnt even put up the Heidi swapp line yet... Still empty! Unbelievable.. I'm gonna go check out the other "boys house" this week! Hoping they have the new pads! As far as the finish on the dcwv stacks I can't understand why they do that either..I hate it! Some of the patterns are really pretty but then they have that finish or glitter.. You would think that they would create more "trendy" stacks!! I think there was one out of all the new ones that I liked.. And thankfully that pad didnt have any glitter or crazy finish on the paper!

I love the foil and glitter, but really don't like that slick, coated, "plastic" feel that more and more Stacks are coming out in.

Serenity's mom you hussy! You go over to a boys house and touch all of his paper to see if they are glittered and varnished!? Hoping they weren't...but are you the kind of girl to tell about touching?

And his new friends that now have a new name - are they as good as the original? colors? textures? weight? or are they cheap phony baloneys? And what initials did these boys tag everywhere? Sounds like some have seen the SS gang, MME left their mark too...wonder if anymore boys will sign their names on the wall?

Those boys tend to mark their names on everything - then sometimes they change their names and are exactly the same which is cool, but sometimes they are not quite as good, ya know?

I am definately a touch and tell girl!

The AT and DL rebrand didn't have all the glitter and glam (which is probably why I bought both of those last year).

These all do. The SS is a Recollection "rebrand" (names were something like Fab Girl and Awesome Boy),and the MME Indie Chic had it's name on it. One is the pinky colors, one is the blue colors.

It is not the thick double sided, but not that flimsy paper like in the other MME stacks(the ones that have like 240 pages)... It's a medium weight similar to the Ms.Caroline and Teresa Collins.

I usually by stacks of paper that I already have most of it from here at 2 peas. It's like I can't pass up a bargain, even though I will never use it

I think the glitter stacks SMELL bad. Can't stand it!


I couldn't agree more! I don't buy any just because of the smell. I like the glitter detail on some of them, but can't get past the smell. I wonder what it is about the manufacturing process that does this. I have a few sheets of the AC pow glitter paper and that doesn't have a bad smell at all.

I've never seen rebranded SS! Awesome.

You know what I don't understand? I would think it would cost DCWV and the other companies that put all the glitter and gloss on their paper extra money to do that, and it seems like so many people have a problem with it. Why don't they just leave it plain?

Well, IMHO, the other's should be the "library" and the "front door"...but that's because I relate them to rooms in a house.

I feel so silly but just can't figure out boys house. I am usually good at this but not today. Glitter is not my thing on paper but i love glossy. There was a line out years ago when I started scrapbooking that had nothing but gloss paper and I can't remember the name. i made 2 albums out of that paper. One for my grandaughter and one for my grandson.

Jen thank you so much....I can't believe it took me till....never to figure it out. I am still laughing at the others on a different thread. I love the rainforest. I purchase alot of things from there. I need to start checking my boys and girls house to see if I can locate a box or two. I have one box already and I would hate to run out. I guess it will still always be online.
Thanks again jen.

I am kind of glad they glitter and gloss them up because it keeps me from being tempted to buy them. I know I won't use them and they will end up getting purged but I still look at them but as soon as I see glitter or gloss I immediately know it isn't for me so it saves me money.

I'll make a stab at a new name for the house like the boy's house. How about the Cool house with MORE stuff. Cool as in Air Conditioned, not hip.

That's the place you go when you're looking for moore stuff. I was there recently but they didn't have moore things I needed.

It's a good thing I'm not into Thickers or I could've maxxed out my scrappy budget. (well, if I had one. LOL)
