    Default Do you buy paper?

    Specifically just for a picture or like me do you have tons of paper on hand waiting for the right picture to come along to use it.

    Tons on hand, usually thanks to paper packs. But I have bought pattered papers specifically for a certain card in mind.

    I really like 2 of the new DCWV paper packs- but I could only justify buying one if I had one or two people who'd split it with me, because I REALLY don't need 3 of every kind of paper.

    I usually just buy paper packs. I don't know if I have ever bought paper with something in mind. I don't think that much ahead.

    I can't remember ever buying pp for something specific like that, unless I count the 50 sheets of Kraft I bought for Christmas cards. I just have packs of it.

    Both! When I go to Joanns, I just browse through the paper and pick and choose which ones I like. If I see something that pops out at me, saying use me for this...then I get it and usually use it for that. I used to just buy one of each paper that I liked, until I started making cards. So now I buy ALOT when its on sale!

    I have a bunch of different paper on hand, but everytime I go to the scrapbooking store I tend to pick out a LO or 2 worth of new stuff anyway. I can't resist, its so much fun having the whole store's worth of paper to pick from and customize. Sometimes I have specific photos in mind, other times I just figure I'll rediscover these in my box of stuff in a few months and be inspired all over again.

    Honestly it all depends. If I am going to a crop at a scrap store then I have a tendency to pick out new paper for the pictures I am scrapping that night. But when I am scrapping at home I just have a bunch of paper sitting around waiting for the right pictures.

    A little of both...well actually I keep a lot on hand. Most of it is just plain colors or simple geometric designs in a wide variety of colors (paper packs). But I did buy a whole a paper pack just for Christmas. When I go to the local scrapbook store I by paper with designs and themes that I know will work in Xavier's books.

    I pick out my paper one piece at a time. I do buy the packs but only in white. Before I go scrapbook shopping I make a list of things I need to scrap and keep them in mind or I do sometimes bring one pic from each event and pick things out. My sister makes fun of me lol
