I love the mat packs for card making, matting photos or color blocking. These are cardstock weight papers and can be used for just about anything. Practical, too, because you don't have to cut up a 12 x 12 paper to mat a photo or some other smaller use.
I'm a bit disappointed with this collection. Usually when you get smaller papers, they are miniatures of the large 12 x 12 papers and ideal for cardmaking. In this case, though, they are a full-size piece of the large original papers, but not all of it...just the section they decided to print. In this case, I'd rather get the 12 X 12 papers and choose the piece I want to have on my card. I probably should have been more suspicious when the size was 5 X 7 instead of 6 X 6 or 8 X 8. I'll know another time.
