My Mind's Eye has always been a company that I have enjoyed. I love the crazy amounts of paper and embellishments that come with each collection. Just so fun! With Quite Contrary nothing changed. SO fun and SO versatile. Both boy and girl themed! FAB. So let's begin shall we?

What I liked:
1. I love the double sided paper. Gives you so much value for your money.
2. I love the weight of the paper. Cardstock weight is much preferred over text weight.
3. So many tight wonderful patterns! A card maker's delight!

What I didn't like:
1. I really like some of the patterns but would have liked to see them in girl colors their cute owl paper for example.

I love MME, the weight of the paper alone is reason to buy this line. I love what you've done w/ this collection.

Theresa said...

I always love MME! Beautiful colors, great embellishments and coordinating items, and they have a wide application. Great stuff!

jan said...

The papers are beautiful! And I agree the paper weight and double side is great with MME!

Erica M. said...

My favorite thing about the My Mind's Eye collections are all the journaling blocks and embellishments that coordinate with the papers. I love it when my journaling feels more like part of the layout!

Ann Cicilie said...

I love the colors and the patterns; I love using lots of colors in my layouts so this is perfect.

so cute! love those polka dots!

Diana said...

This is one of my favourite lines of paper (by any manufacturer) ever. For most of them I love both patterns (on either side of each paper). It is really beautiful and great for all different kinds of pages.
Also I like the weight of the paper--heavy enough to use as base cardstock, which I like to do with the more subtle patterns.

Cindy said...

It's a bit more girly than I normally buy (since I have a son), but it would be fun for those rare projects I do for friends with girls! Thanks for the chance to win.

I like MME, but I do not like glitter papers, and stuff, and every time I find MME at the store, there is always glitter and textures on them

I dislike Glitter papers, but I love this line, and I like this paper, just hope there's not glitter :)
