Default 6x6 paper pad for Valentine's

I have not been a big fan of patterned paper until I recieved a 6x6 pad, maybe because I don't do scrapbooks. I love the small pads for my cards and other projects and would love to find one with bright colors for Valentine's, especially one with real red colors. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Ronni, that is cute! I would love to find one that has more reds in it though. It seems most, if not all, I have found is pinks.

Check your local Michaels... I found this Recollections 6x6 called "With Love". I like the mix of pink and red in it.

Thanks, Laura! I really like that one! Unfortunately, I live 3 hours away from any craft stores, but I will have my aunt check her area.

Here is a 6x6 valentines paper pack by whimsy stamps.

Whimsy Romance.
I don't have it so I am not sure if one of the colors is real red.

I bought a cute 6x6 pad at Michael's by Martha Stewart. I don't recall the title, but she had 2 different pads and the one I selected had loads of red. Naturally I used my 40% off coupon.

Wow! I didn't know there were any 6x6 pads in the Recollections brand. I've never seen any at Michaels. I'll definitely look next time I'm there. It's an hour from my house, so I don't get there too often.

My favorite collections are My Minds Eye, Crate Paper, Lilly Bee and Echo Park. I'd suggest you go to each website to see what collections appeal to you. Then go to Ebay to see if you can find them there. That's where I buy mine. The shipping is less expensive than ordering from online stampin'/scrapbooking stores.

Echo Park "Love Story"...lots of red, black and pink.

Carta Bella "Devoted" - red, blue, grey and pink

Bo Bunny "Love Letters" - red, teal or turquoise - I mix those up, pink and black

Authentique "Lovely" - pink, black, red - vintage designs

American Crafts "XOXO" - green, pink and red - the patterns are more versatile in this one - in addition to more traditional "love" patterns, there are flowers, butterflies, kites, etc.

These are pads I actually have. There are loads more out there.
