Default Desperately seeking paper enablers...

I need patterned paper in blues.. medium to dark blues. Definitely need some royals but other blues as well.

I'm finding that I have NO BLUE paper. None of my pads have blue paper in them. It's so discouraging.

So, I started looking and there aren't that many. Then I thought, "You're a lousy shopper. Ask the experts."

So here I am. BEGGING anyone who has seen paper packs that have more than one or two medium to dark blues to share where! Preferably with name, rank, serial number... or at least a linky-do!

If there's anything I DON'T want... it'd be uberly girlie Victorian roses or something.

Help?

Sorry I can't help you. Blue is not an "in" color these days? This sounds like one of those things you think you should be able to go out and find at any scrapbook paper place, but can't. It's so frustrating. Good Luck.

I'd take a look at Authentique. I have a pad of "Journey", which may be brighter than what you are looking for, but from their site it looks like they have other pads built on darker blues, like "Original" and "Strong".

Of course then you will have to find them. I picked up mine at a LSS, but I'm sure they're online somewhere.

Raws,

I think if I lived where there were stores, I could find it easier. I'm limited to online or driving 90 miles.

In case you need some in the future, here are some basics:

They also have many other colors including Spring Rain which is a light blue.

I love that you ask. We often wonder but don't. You helped satisfy curiosity. That's great.

Thanks for the papertrey ink link. If I ever need more, I'll have to remember that.
