Everyone loves a pretty patterned paper! Look out for ones that work well together - if you are a beginner go for papers from the same collection so you know for sure that they will work together. Look out for fussy-cutting opportunities, especially on floral papers. If you have the patience to cut out all the elements on a 12" sheet you'll save yourself money on embellishments! Some 12" sheets have cut-apart designs that are great for using as layering pieces too, so when you're looking at patterned papers - think about all the possible ways you could use the sheet & don't forget the B sides - I often prefer them! They are usually more subtle & subdued & often work better for male layouts as they are often simpler designs like spots & stripes. We also stock smaller paper pads perfect for mini albums & travellers notebooks as well as some collection packs that contain a great selection of papers, often with a sticker sheet included!
