Are you looking forward to any new holiday collections? Do you buy holiday collections, or try to avoid them?

I have quite a few Christmas paper pads, so I'm trying to avoid them this year. They're so tempting after the holidays though when they go on clearance. Halloween collections too. That's usually when I cave.

omg, I don't bother resisting I just cave. I think some of the Christmas lines this year are awesome. AS is the new DCWV/Joann's Halloween stack.

I don't need any more paper but I keep thinking about the DCWV fall one. I love pumpkins.

I bought the Happy Haunting kit by My Mind's Eye to do some of my Halloween scrapping.

I have not really looked at the Christmas stuff because thinking about Christmas puts me on overload right now. I just want to make it through September!!

I've been eyeing Happy Haunting too, but I'll wait until it goes on clearance. Why? Because I don't need it!

I had to have G45 Steampunk Spells Halloween collection, but it is flexible, I've used it for school pages. But one Halloween collection is more than I need, I really only do 2 pages each year and that might be one now that my oldest is in middle school.

I don't celebrate Christmas and Hannukah collections aren't usually worth buying, better to make my own out of generic stuff.

I am really trying to resist buying any more scrapping supplies until I use at least some of what I have. I had way too much of my own when my son's marriage dissolved. I gained some of what was left behind - so I HAVE WAY TOO MUCH!!

But - now I'm on to collecting SVG files. I'm insane - - I've even figured out how to scan an image and convert it to SVG. I'm sick, I'm telling you ! !

I've already got BG's Persimmon, but because the colours are my wedding colours, not because it was an autumn kit. Having said that, I love that this year's Hallowe'en colours seem to be those delicious oranges with blues instead of purples and greens.

But I am also mourning the lack of purple this year because I LOVE purple, I use it a lot and it only really comes out now.

Nora, I need Christmas papers like a hole in the head, but that G45 link got an involuntary "ooh" out of me. Drat!

I was discussing the lack of purple on another scrapbooking board. It's Lilly's favorite color, so I scrap with it quite a bit too. I just ordered some basics in purple from Pebbles.

I really don't need more Halloween paper, but I caved and bought a 12x12 pack of this from Authentique:

http://authentiquepaper.com/products/Thrilling

because unlike the pictures, the pack I bought has the designs all backed with tone on tone non-Halloween designs like ledger and graph paper that can be used for any season in cream, black, and orange. So I can use the great Halloween papers, but since there's 4 of each style, I can use mostly the season-neutral backs. Plus, one of the papers was cream and black chevrons and I love chevrons right now. Oddly, you can't get the 12x12 pack online - only at AC Moore. I discovered that when I didn't buy one of their seasonal packs last year and ended up regretting it.

I bought these at a LSS a few weeks ago!! I didn't buy all of them but some and LOVE them. I wish sb.com would get them in.
