Default coordinating patterned papers

What are you favorite go-to companies to find patterned papers that coordinate for cardmaking, besides Stampin Up?

Basic Grey is my all time favorite! Their 6x6 pads are scaled down in size for card making and their paper is the best!

For me it's Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, and American Crafts...and My Mind's Eye is creeping up that list too.

Also, love Jillibean Soup, but it's only available in single sheets (I think)

I generally don't buy pp solely for the purpose of using it on a card, unless it's SU. I use pp for scrapbook pages, and the scraps/leftovers get utlilized in cards.

I use lots of My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey, Fancy Pants, We R Memory Keepers and Bo Bunny.

I like SU because everything coordinates - and at a reasonable price. I don't like paying the same price for a solid coordinate as the patterned paper that most companies require (because the solid is on the back of a patterned page) or struggling to find coordinating solids amongst my LSS's inventory. I need to figure out how PTI's coordinates work. When I've been in their site I've seen patterned papers I truly loved but didn't see the coordinating solid colors listed anywhere (Am I missing that somewhere?).

I have stopped buying patterned papers as I never liked to use them,instead I buy downloads for digital scrapbooking and use them for my cardmaking too. I can print the papers on to paper or card and the colours always co-ordinate so well, you also get the elements which I sometimes make into decoupage.

I love to scrapbook as well as stamp so I have a few favorites among the scrapbooking companies. My favorite patterned paper companies are My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon, and Basic Grey.

Here's another vote for Basic Grey. I have a collection of their 6 x 6 pads with the matching brads. The patterns on the 6 x 6 are the perfect scale for cards (IMO). I also love My Minds's Eye. Their paper packs always seem to have a great mix of patterns.

DCWV!!!! I love the Mat Stacks! They are a high-quality paper. The embossing is great - the glitter papers are fun, and the glitter doesn't rub off - the shimmer papers are elegant! love them all!

Well; I love SU! papers but just ordered my first Basic Grey paper 6 x 6. I am hoping to be able to coordinate colors also with the Basic Grey; so when I get to using it will hopefully be able to answer this question better! lol

That was so funny.......

I like to say I'm a paper collector!! I go to make my cards and end up oohing and aahing over all the pretty papers I've collected, and believe me I have a ton!!!!

Seriously, Basic Grey is one of my very favorites, since you can coordinate the papers together, and I ditto the person that mentioned CTMH. Their Level 2 paper packets have great color matched 12 x 12 designer papers and then matching sheets of white core card stock that coordinate and make it fun to emboss and accent cards or layouts. I can easily match my Copics to both.

Krissy, I have a ton of their Mat Stacks. I do have one problem with them tho, and maybe you have a solution. I have trouble removing one piece of paper since everything is glued together at the top. Many times, actually most times, I end up ripping part of the paper off just trying to get it off the pad. Have you had this problem, and if so, what do you do? I love DCWV and the coordinting mat stacks. Thanks.

yup.. i have had this happen too. I don't know why they use so much glue. Maybe it's because their papers are heavy, but thankfully i don't use the ENTIRE piece of paper when i make a card so i cut off the ripped part if it does that on me. sorry, no solution other than that!

I have a ton of theirs too since I love their designs. I can get them to tear off okay if I open the pad all the way and tear very carefully. It won't tear the paper, but it will usually break the pad apart because of the glue issue. I just rubber band the pieces together, but it works!!!

I too am a CTMH fan. Like SU, they have dp, cardstock, ink, markers, and embellies that co-ordinate. I have some non-CTMH stuff and I always have trouble finding co-ordinating products to go with them. I always end up disappointed with my non-CTMH purchases and don't end up using them much. Plus, they take all the guesswork out of what goes together. Love it, love it, love it.
