Is anyone else feeling the same as I have been... It's odd lately I have been finding it harder and harder to be motivated to use my patterned paper on cards (I scrapbook and mix in PL as well) but my PP hoard is slightly outrageous considering I make more cards then layouts and all that.

I have found with my collection of ink, sprays, paints, etc, as well as stencils and making my own masks I just don't use the patterned paper on my cards lately. Don't get me wrong I still love my cards, and love making them. Just haven't loved anything I have used patterned paper on.

Anyone else in the same boat?

I actually have never really used patterned paper except on the rare occasion.  I've always preferred making my own backgrounds and patterns. I have plenty of patterned paper in my stash, I'm just not comfortable on how to use it well. One of my goals this year is to start using it! :)

I can understand this. It can be very satisfying to create your own backgrounds. I've been using less and less PP on layouts . . . of course, that doesn't stop me from buying it! :lol:

PP is so pretty, I'd rather use it for calender inlays -- I have the beautiful Midori Traveler's Journal and make the monthly booklets to go inside -- for or smash-book rip-offs I make myself, so it goes where I can see and use it daily.

My favorite part of card making is the stamping, but I love to add accents of patterned papers - there are so many awesome ones!!

I use lots of PP on my cards. I buy 6x6 pads just for that purpose.. I also stamp on just about every card I make. I keep my cards simple  and can use up lots of scraps also. I own very few inks etc because I have so much PP. I love making cards.
