The Celebration pad coordinates wonderfully with the Rainbow Organdy ribbon! It's also great if you happen to use a lot of Bold Brights papers like Green Galore, Pink Passion or Brilliant Blue.

I'll admit, the Fiesta pad has been on my 'wish' list, since it looks like a good one for Real Red or YoYo Yellow works! Have fun choosing!~TexasGrammy

Celebration for sure! I don't have that one. Fiesta is nice to use but I guess you always want what you don't have.

Fiesta! I wasn't sure I'd like it, but now that I have it, I love it! It's a great combo of colors. I also like Taffy, but those colors are really, really subtle, which is good for somethings. But when you want a bold splash of color, Fiesta is awesome! Its colors are Summer Sun, Real Red, Marvelous Magenta, Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal. They really are a nice combination.

Here's a sample card I made using the Fiesta pad:

Default pick one that matches the papers you use most

I have the celebration and love it. But I use bold brights alot. I think the starter kits have the Fiesta as the standard pad. Surprising, but I love using those colors too.

I'd have to say I think most people would find the celebration pad as the one they grab the most. I use it on birthday cards all the time. It's bright and cheerful and makes me smile when I use it.

I "splurged". I have 3 different spetrum pads.

I have bought them based on the colours of the cardstock I use most and all those ideas I had stored up in my imagination.

blue frost - the winter themed things, love the blues
pumpkin patch - the autumn themed items, I can smell the pie coming on when I use this one
fiesta - because I love the summer sun yellow, and the real red, oh, and the ballet blue, and the taken with teal ...

(I'm sooo decisive about what I want and like.)

I have both celebration and fiesta. Celebration is terrific when you want something to look tied-dyed. I love to use the fiesta as a backdrop to scenery cards. the yellow and red blend together is form a sunset effect and the greens and blues look like water. I blend this together on glossy paper and then stamp mountains across the top third of the card and pine trees around the bottom two thirds edges. It appears to be a mountain lake at sunset. It makes a gorgeous card for a man. I know this doesn't help you decided. I'd just get both sets!

This is really embarrassing ! I went up to check out my spectrum pads because I couldn't be for sure which one was which (I am not a demo, so I am not as familar with the names of everything!) I have both celebration and fiesta, and even though I already voted for celebration, I really use fiesta more! They are both great pads, though! I also have autumn leaves and blue frost and love them both! I don't care for the taffy and am going to buy an uninked pad and make my own baby colored one some day!
