Default My Mind's Eye - Paper question

Hi, I am limited to internet shopping which can make it tough sometimes to coordinate colors; what looks like it matches on the computer often does not match in real life. For those of you who use My Mind's Eye products, do you know if they change their colors every year? For instance...will the colors from "Christmas Wish" coordinate with the colors from "Merry Days of Christmas"? Do the reds in Merry Days of Christmas match up to the reds in Signature Christmas? If they primarily use the same colors then I know I am good to order from wherever I can find the best price...if not, I would rather know now than to end up having to return something or worse, keep something I will not be using because I can't find colors that match up.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

Each line has its own color palette. So for instance - the pads from Find your Wings and Fly coordinate.

Standalone lines are not meant to coordinate with anything else but they may by coincidence.

I think reds are probably the hardest to match up- you may be able to work with opposite colors, like reds & greens, or reds & neutrals, greens & neturals from two different collections. But I wouldn't count on the reds or the greens matching spot-on.

I have such a hodge-podge mix of supplies, paper and such, from so many different places. I've decided that the words "coordinating" and "complimentary" are much more worthwhile for me than "matching."

If the solid color cardstock I have on hand doesn't exactly match the color in my patterened paper, I don't stress and worry about it. When the whole card is done, it usually looks pretty good. To me, at least.

Thanks! I found a seller on Ebay who matches up paper and embelishments from different companies and puts them together...almost wondering if I should buy that and get on with my day
