Let's Play: Name That Paper!

Check out what I've been working on in my few spare minutes of a lunch break... One of my weird "talents" is being able to identify any piece of paper, solid or patterned, by collection, manufacturer and even the year it came out. I know that's a totally useless talent, but it was one I acquired without a real intent to. So....if you can tell me what manufacturer and collection this paper comes from then you're in for some yummy blog candy!!! The first person to with the correct answer wins the grand prize, but there's more! Leave a comment with your favorite paper collection, and I'll pick a few more winners at random. Let the games begin!

WOW! What a talent! There must be a reason for it somewhere. Me? I don't have it. So, how about Cosmo Cricket, just a wild guess.
I love K&Co.

Sara said...

Wow that's a talent I don't have. I can't even guess who's it is. I generally don't look.

darn, I've got no clue what this paper is : / and to be honest, my favourite papers are washi/yuzen/chiyogami paper! (hum, cool colors and metallic accents). By the way, I'm talking about these papers

for scrapbooking papers... you know I love Basic Grey ;)

Darlene said...

I have absolutely no idea but I love the colors. What an amazing talent you have for knowing paper. Some of my fav collections are Figgy Pudding and some of the newer SU ds papers like Berry Bliss and Western Sky. Darlene L

CAKVD said...

I'm starting to realize that I also have that talent. Of course, it is only if I've ever seen that paper before! I have never seen this paper before. So I have to take a guess...DCWV.
Thanks!

Oh my...I've seen this paper, and can walk right to it at LSS, but for the life of me, I can't remember the name. I'm going to go with KI Memories. I'm not certain that I have a favorite company...I buy whatever strikes me and looks great for the project I'm working on at the time. Thanks for the chance to win some blog bling.

Cindy Vernon said...

I'll say Heidi Grace. My favorite paper right now is Basic Grey Two Scoops.

Pat S. said...

Well...I've looked and looked and looked, and I've found similar, but not a match.

So I'll just leave with American Crafts as my guess, and Basic Grey as my favorite.

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Nadine P said...

Not sure about this paper as I'm fairly new to this craft, but I must say I totally love Basic Grey papers as well as Stampin Up's.

Sandy said...

I know I'm not the first to guess this but I think it's Scenic Route!

Pat S. said...

Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' Winter Bright ???

That's as close as I can find :)

And I am starting to like the SU palette of papers.
Thanks!

Elaine said...

The colors look like Scenic Route, KI, or maybe the past season's Making Memories holiday/winter line~??? I will have to remember to come here to ask for your help when I can't figure out who makes a certain paper!! Thanks for the fun game!!

You should think about moving to Seattle....I bet you'd have lots of luck dating here!! :)

Marilyn said...

It certainly may be Reminisce, but I think it's Lil' Davis. Bo Bunny is my paper if choice for my valentine's.
