This is my very first paper pad purchase as I am just getting into card making. I have to say I'm super impressed. The colors are so lovely and the designs are gorgeous. I particularly love the little horses, umbrellas, envelopes, and jars! I plan to use these to make envelopes with the patterns on the inside as a liner. I'm sure these would be great to make actual cards as well as layouts for scrapbooking. I will definitely be purchasing more paper pads from this line as well as the single sheets which I saw are double sided!
