I would have to say what has me sold on this collection is the patterns and colors in the papers and embellishments. If I can utilize the patterns in paper for more than one project, I'm hooked. Thanks for a chance to win

Oh gosh... This giveaway is yummmmy - and meets my 'two things' below:

OK.. Two things I look for: 1. Ability to fit into an album! Not bulky.. 2. Not overbearing.. I like clean, simple, gorgeous - I'm about the photos and accenting them - not overpowering them!!!

JAN said...

The colors and patterns are what I look for in a new collection. Thanks for the chance to win. I'm already a follower.

BabyBokChoy said...

I look for how easy it is to mix the paper with other paperlines. However typically, I buy brands, some brands, it really doesn't matter, I love it all

Shawninaz said...

The first thing that catches my eye is the color/design and then probably the name. I do love collections when they come with lots of goodies like Fancy Pants shown on your video, really liked the video by the way! Next I am always thrilled when a line I luv includes page layouts and card kits. The Basic Grey ones are always high quality.

I look at the colors & pattern and think if they are in my style :-)

LISA said...

Color and patterns almost always sell me on a collection!! And if you can mix and match from other collections that is a plus! Love this new collection!!

Tona said...

The 1st thing that caught my eye was the colors. They're wonderful.

kmassman said...

AllyW said...

Love the colors of these products!!
The chipboard pieces and the Flair are my favorite. My fingers are crossed :)

huntla1 said...

I love the soft, muted colors of the papers. I just find these colors easier to work with for a background than the super bright colors. Thanks for the opportunity.

angiepie02 said...

It would have to be the 12x12 papers. I'm in love with the super detailed papers, flocked, glittered, you name it + charms and pockets are my favs for mini's also

Miss Jaster said...

The thing that sells me on a new collection is the patterns and embellishments, also the font of the letter stickers!

Stampin Mindy said...

Great collection of some of the new papers. What catches my eye is vibrant color, bold contrast, I love vintage with a twist of modern for personality. With the trnd in more pastel soft collections I still tend to add black, white, brown or grey to make the colors pop.

Sophia said...

Am a follower...

I always look at the pleasing colours that catch my eye, I seem to get drawn to pretty soft girly colours and patterns, as I have 2 girls.

Melinda AKA medialady said...

The first thing that caught my eye was the name Dear Lizzy. I have been see alot of her stuff on blogs, etc. and I would love to get my hands on some of it. Also the color palette draws by attention.

AlleycatPixie said...

What catches my eye first are colors, then the patterns. I examine the patterens to compare and see which solid colrs I ca use with them to create different projects. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful kit!

Rebecca said...

Colors and patterns catch my eye first. If the collection has a great alpha, that pretty much seals the deal :)

MaryAnn said...

For me, it's definitely color first and pattern second that catches my eye. Thanks for the chance to win!

colors & patterns/design are what catch my eye

brenlubrant said...

I always look for the color and style of the new paper collection.

Scrapamum said...

I have to say color and style. I also like to see if it goes with other papers and products. It's always nice to mix and match products from different companies.

ScrapNSister1 said...

normally the paper design draws me in, i'm quite the sucker for paper. :)

pam allen said...

First the papers I tend to like shabby chic and then the embellishments. Thanks for the giveaway

THE PRINCESS of everything ... said...

I love the fabric covered brads! and virtually ANYTHING (these days) that is brown, pink & aqua (and any combo there of) ..... but who knows by next week!!!!! too much to choose from ... LOTS to scrap. YAY

Cindyloohoo said...

Wow that kit is beautiful. I am a real romantic at heart. Hope to get the chance to use it. Thanks.

Miss Shawn said...

I think that color is always the thing that catches me first. I'm always drawn to new colors and patterns and the way they can be used.

Diana said...

New papers are what attract me. I am especially fascinated with the smaller sizes, like 6x6. I love the soft, muted colors and small patterns. Thanks for the chance to win.

Cil A. said...

Usually the colors are the first thing that catch my eye and then some of the details in the embellishments such as birds or that kind of thing. Thanks for the chance to win.

julie.schellin said...

I love AC stuff - the colors here are lovely! thanks for a chance to win!

Cassi said...

AC always gets me with their new collections. I love how Letterbox, Botanique, and Dear Lizzy can all be mixed and matched together. If a new line has cute stamps and great color combos, I'm hooked.

AnnaMarie said...

I'm a fan on your FB page but am now an official blog follower!! YAY! :) And what I love the most about this collection is the whimsical, fun feel and joyful colors - just makes me happy and gives me warm fuzzies. :)

You can take the girl off the farm...

kimosabescraps said...

Oh wow... this is beautiful.. the colors are wonderful and scream spring!!

Jennifer said...

For me it's the papers and unique embellishments, such as cool stamps!

Bonnie said...

Colors & patterns are what sell it for me but, a catchy name is always an eye catcher too. Thanks, Bonnie :-)

Nitasha said...

The color combo catches my eye! And of course, Thickers always make me grin!

lillianchild said...

Generally it's always the color combinations that will catch my eye on any new collection. That, and if the patterns are too busy or too vague - again will catch my eye. Thanks for the chance to win!

Char- The Mad Shopper said...

I love the gentle colors.

Carol said...

carylhope said...

Absolutely love the colors and stamp set!

Wendy said...

Hey, New to the blog, but now a follower. I am loving the color and font of the Thickers!

pickles99 said...

lately i seem to be looking for gentle patterns with neutral color palettes. something that can be enriched with ink, glimmer mists, and paint. something i can make more my own, and all your pictures will look great with the end product.

Megan A. said...

it is usually the colors that draw me to a new collection, but sometimes luscious trims and accents can help too.

Laura Stewart said...

definitely the colors first, then the design - I'm still ga ga over the papers first then all the goodies

Olivia said...

The name has it all! It teases all of my senses and makes my giddy to get home and play!

Maryu said...

Color is the first thing I see in a collection. Next I look for embellishments that I will actually use--not too thick or bulky and not too specific, like "new baby" or "graduation." Thanks for a chance to win.

KateB said...

as a paper hoarder, that's the first thing I look at-the colors have to fit into my scrappin'.I then look at the potential to mix the collection with older product...name not so much...tfs!

smahrty said...

The name usually catches my eye first, then the color! Also love creative packaging.

Michels said...

What a beautiful giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win it!

junqueandroses said...

They are several things that "sell" me on a line....color, first of all, content, and then the accessories that are available.

Thanks for the chance ti win this kit!
