Fourth Blogoversary - Filling the Boxes!

 

Happy Groundhog Day!  I had a long trip home from Germany but everything went well.  I needed a bit of time to "decompress" and catch up with things here at home.  Then our internet took a brief vacation but I managed to get it reset by unplugging everything and starting over.  So now....

It's time to start the blogoversary party!

Just like last year, I have three boxes that I will be filling with gifts that I'll send to three blog readers.  Each day I'll add more things to the boxes until they are full and ready to ship.  Starting with this post, you can comment on every post until the boxes are full to maximize your chance to be chosen by random draw.  You don't have to be a follower or a subscriber to win, however, if you enjoy my blog, subscribing by email will help you make sure that you don't miss anything - just click HERE and fill in your address, then reply to the confirmation email to be added to the list.  If you prefer to "follow" you can do that by clicking "Join this site" at the top of the right side column.

If you are a subscriber or follower, you can leave another comment and have a second chance each day as a way for me to thank you for your support.  If you are a Facebook user you can also "like" the Capadia Designs page HERE and leave another comment telling me that you are a Facebook fan.

You can leave comments everyday so you will have multiple chances to be one of the three winners.  Please don't leave more than 3 on one day (1 comment, 2 follower or subscriber, 3 Facebook fan).  When you leave a comment be sure that you don't have the box checked to be notified of follow up comments so you don't get tons of emails clogging up your in box.  Please be sure to leave some way for me to contact you if you are one of the lucky three - you can leave your email address and use (at) and (dot) to help avoid spam.


Sounds pretty easy, right?

There is one catch - you can't just leave a random comment - you have to answer the question in the post (so I know you are paying attention!).


This year I am starting off the boxes with a pad of 12 x 12 paper from K & Company - the Brenda Walton "Sweet Talk" specialty paper pad.  I'll be photographing things in the large square boxes but actually shipping everything in the medium box because the paper pad has the extra hanging tab area and won't fit neatly in the square box.

This is the paper that I used for many of the projects you have seen posted recently - the mobile, the treat and cookie bags, the candle lantern and several cards.  It is from a few years ago but is still one of my favorites with some glitter, flocking and foil.  I have always found that the K & Company paper cuts very well with my die cutting machines - it is just the right weight and texture.

The first question is... 

What is your favorite brand (or brands if you can't choose just one) of paper and/or cardstock?  Why do you prefer this brand (is it the designs, the weight and ease of cutting that paper in your machine, etc.).  Do you prefer single sided or double sided paper?  I am just curious to know about the paper and cardstock that you like to use - it would be fun to discover some new ones that I don't know about yet!


I know that a lot of you are eager to hear more about my trip to Germany and the trade shows that Mandy, Enfys and I attended there.  I'll be adding separate posts with updates on what I saw - and maybe even some projects to share.  It's going to be a busy week!

  7. I am a subscriber. I don't really have a favorite paper/cardstock. I usually end up buying whatever is on sale. I kind of like double sided paper. That way if I make a mistake, I can make a second try without wasting paper. When I do, I usually like the coordinating paper better anyway. Glad you are home safe. Thanks for the giveaway. I'm sure it will be a good one.

  8. K & Co is one of my faves too, but the Tim Holtz papers are just awesome and a new fave for me. I love the vintage grunge patterns and designs. Double-sided paper is great until you LOVE the pattern on both sides and wish you had more of it. Been reading your blog for years. Congrats on #4!

  12. My favorite cardstock is coredinations - pearl or gemstone. I don't like cardstock with a white core - does not look good when cut. I buy a lot of the DCWV matstacks for pattern papers. They coordinate well within the stack, and have smaller patterns than the coordinating 12x12 stack so work better for cards.

  14. I like Coordinations cardstock and Prima papers. I love double sided paper because I automatically have a different coordinating print or solid when I'm making cards.

  15. I have tons and tons of DCWV so I must say it is my favorite. Love that I can buy a pad and it all coordinates be it a 12 x 12 or a 6 x 6. However I do like American Crafts for the way it cuts in my Cricut, too. But then I also like CTMH paper as well. Can you say I just might be a paperaholic? :-)

    Glad you made it safely home. Can't wait to see the photos of your trip.

    Hard to pick a favorite paper I have never met a paper I don't like. I love K&Co, Martha Stewart, STampin Up and Paper Trey Ink. In my paper I like beauty, quality and ease of cutting it in the Cricut and I find all of the above meet those requirements.

  20. Sorry, I forgot to answer the question! I have mostly one sided paper. I would love to get some more double sided papers for when I make my 3-D paper crafts! I'm a FB follower now! joy4umetoo at hotmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  21. My favorite right now is Echo Park. I am loving the designs they have and the weight of the paper. I prefer double sided paper b.c it is easy to use the other side as part of your project as well since both sides coordinate. My Mind's Eye paper would be my second favorite, especially the lime twist series. They made coordinating twine to go with this series- awesomeness!


    Glad you had a great trip to Germany and a safe return home!

    Bazzill cardstock who moved their labeling to an added strip giving 1/4 more paper to use with different textures and colors (thank you Archiever's)
    I love single sided and double sided paper with creating cards - and I am not picky about the company. I do like to use all the same company and lot with working with patterned papers. smgunderscoregdpathotmaildotcom

  28. Wow, how cool. I can only imagine how wonderful Germany was. Thanks for all the projects. I check in all the time even if I don't always make comments.

    My favorite brands of paper are Core-dinations (I love the texture and the way it cuts in my Cricut), DCWV - I love the pretty patterns, textures and colors. And I've recently fallen in love with My Minds Eye. I like the double sided patterns for those projects that show both side of the paper. It makes them look so much prettier! Thanks for a chance to win.

  34. So much fun! My favorite paper is SEI. I love the patterns and the textures. The collections all seem to coordinate great together too! I love them so much that sometimes I don't use them!! Which I need to though! I also love the patterns that Echo Park and Imaginisce have! I also love any form of glitter paper. Probably because I love glitter!

  44. Hi, Diane!

    I really don't have a "favorite" paper brand. If I find a paper pad I like, I get it - when it's on sale! Depending on the project determines whether it's single- or double-sided paper.

  48. Glad you had a safe trip home and are recuperating. My favorite paper for solids is Core-dinations, especially the textured paper. For patterned paper I like double-sided for their complimentary patterns. My favorite paper is Echo Park, it cuts nicely in the Cricut.

  51. welcome home Diane!! my favorite cardstock and my most often used one is the Recollections cardstock from Michaels. I love that it is reasonably priced and it cuts well with both my cutting machines. I do like double sided paper occasionally because it gives me more choices:-)

  54. Hi again (I'm a follower)
    I prefer double-sided paper but sometimes don't like that I have to choose a side if I like both. I have a Martha Stewart "baby girl" pad that causes many paper/design dilemmas because I love both sides. Makes it easy to coordinate though.

  59. Diane, Congrats on your Blog Anniversary! I don't really have a favorite paper company but I do like American Crafts, K & Company, DCWV,and Paper Studio. All of the above cut really nice in my machines. As far as two side paper, I use it depending on what kind project I am working on. I am currently working on valentine cards and I just bought a stack of "The Paper Studio" So So Sweet W/glitter. Love the patterns in this stack.

  60. I think my favourites are the DCWV simply because they have such a great variety and they are readily available. I prefer single sided paper because I always feel like I am wasting a side when they are double-sided!

The designs are always great and it works wonderfully in my cutters. I love this paper but I do like single sided paper. I always feel obligated to buy two sheets of double sided paper so I can use both sides. LOL

    My favorite solid color papers for cutting in cricut thus far is Stampin up, I like the weight and that it has a solid color core (not white). I also like double sided papers

  71. Congratulations on 4 years of blogging. If I haven't said it recently, your blog is fantastic. I know it has evolved a bit over the years but it is still fresh and informative.

    As for me, my favorite paper company is Jillibean Soup. I love that most of it is double sided. The designs are fantastic and she has a kraft line which I love.

    I absolutely adore double sided papers. It is sometimes tough to cut into one side because I have ideas for the other side but I hate single sided papers because I'm often afraid I'll want to make a 3D item and it will look weird with a white side.

  79. Hi, I want to answer your question about the paper. My favorite cardstock is the DCWV cardstock. All cuts with the cricut are pretty. My cricut couldn't cut Bazzill very well.

    And, greetings from Germany! I saw your were on Paperworld is it interesting for you who lives in the USA - the crafting world? I bought all my crafty stuffs in the USA.

  80. Glad you had a good trip. My favorite paper would have to be K&Co. I normally try to get most of my paper on sale, so price is really the determining factor. I like double sided paper for making cards or crafts, but feel like I am wasting paper when I use a double sided paper on my layouts.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Bazill is my favorite paper. Love the weight and textures. BUT I also love digital paper that I print out on my printer. I can choose the weight of the paper and it's always on hand! I prefer single sided because I always feel I'm wasting the side I don't use!!! LOL

  88. Glad to hear you got back from Germany safe and sound. My favourite papers are double sided and AC card stock. The reason I love AC card stock is because it cuts like butter in my Lynx and I just love double sided papers because they are more versatile, and they lend themselves to be used in 3D projects more.

    Thanks for the chance to win...

    I would have a hard time choosing just one paper line. I love Bazzill cardstock, but find that it doesn't always cut well in the Cricut. I like the Core'Dinations since it does cut well in the Cricut, and comes in so many lovely colors. As for paper, I prefer double-sided, K&C would probably be the one I have the most of.

    Happy Blog-o-versary!

I love American Crafts cardstock for cutting in my Cricut, and the colors are really great. Co'ordinations is another favorite...did you say choose one?! LOL!

  113. I love DCWV, so many designs to choose from and love the thickness. My favorite cardstock is from Stampin Up, it seems to cut the best in my cutting machine and I love that you can match the colors up perfectly with the inks, ribbons, etc. Thanks for the chance to win!

  115. Can't wait to hear all about your trip! Glad you made it home safely! I don't have a particular brand of paper that I use or love - I usually get what is on sale and what is pretty. I do prefer double-sided, but it is not a deal breaker if I love the pattern on the paper! Thanks for the chance to win! :-)

  116. I love Stampin' Up paper -it cuts so nicely, but I also like Die Cuts with a View, and have to agree about K and Company. Also, I love Paper Layerz by Meghan Elizabeth- it really cuts well and makes putting together small cuts a snap! lclass003atgmaildotcom

  120. Thanks for always sharing such neat projects and ideas!

    As for my favorite papers - hmmm...I love K & Company and Coredinations - the second because of how well it cuts in the Cricut, the first because of the awesome prints they have. I totally prefer one sided paper though. Double sided always presents me with the tough choice of which side I want to use! I've actually got some pieces unused because of this! (Yes, I know I'm weird!) ;)

  121. Sounds like you had an awesome trip. Glad you are home safe and were able to get the internet back up and running! My favorite paper is Bazzil. I like the thickness and texture of it. I generally use single sided paper, but double sided paper can be nice when you need to match colors/patterns!

  123. One of your boxes would be like another Christmas! I'm a follower and get your newsletter in my mailbox, no chance of missing you!

    My favorite paper is probably DCWV which has beautiful colors and patterns and cuts nicely. But that doesn't mean that I don't love lots of others! Whatever is in front of me at the moment...

  124. 1. Welcome back.
    It depends on what I am making...I like to use The Paper Studio 8.5 x 11 for the outside of my cards. Then I use DCWV paper a lot 12x12 and also stampin' up cardstock. For the Imagine I use Color Box White cardstock. It cuts good and OK weight. If I am coloring with promarkers, then I use 110lb white made my Wausaupaper. I don't have problems with it bleeding and it is smooth.

  131. As far as paper goes....I love just about anything. I like a firm, thick cardstock for most things but if I'm covering something else that has a tough/firm core then it doesn't matter thin and flimsy works too. I LOVE LOVE LOVE DCWV, Echo park, Bazil (spelling?)....I find that all of these are very pretty, offer a tone of variety and work well in my cricut.

  132. Thank you for sharing all these years. I lve any paper that is double sided because I don't have too search too much for coordinating paper and save every scrap. K & Company is one of my favorites.

  133. Nice to have you back in the US! My all time favorite paper/cardstock is October Afternoon. The retro feel to the designs can't be beat. Everytime I pick a favorite line they come out with another I love more.

  134. I believe the brand is BOK. It's a $5, white paper pad from Walmart. It has great texture and weight, perfect for my Imagine. Thamks for the opportunity to win your box. I really enjoy following your blog. Love to read about your trips and see your pictures. Thank you.

  140. So glad you had a safe and fun trip! As for your question about paper, I have recently fallen in love with Graphic 45 paper - the designs are fantastic; it is a very sturdy paper and it is just beautiful paper to work with!
    Thanks for the chance to win all these goodies!

  145. Glad you had a great time on your trip and can hardly wait to see your pictures! About the paper I use, I really like Nenah paper for the forming of my cards. Then I love PTI card stock along with Gina K Designs. Both companies have beautiful heavyweight stock and they are sooooo smooth, that's in case I want to use my copics. I also love DCWV. Ciao db:)

  146. I love SEI shimmer papers lately, they cut so well in my Cricut and are so beautiful. cardstock..don't have a preference right now. October AFternoon captured my eye right away when it appeared due to the 50's look!

  147. I love K & Co. papers. They keep coming out with the most luscious lines of stacked papers and they are readily available at my local big box craft stores. They are a nice heavy weight and lots of them have texture like glitter and embossing.

  153. no particular brand. i love ds paper but i feel like i am wasting one side b/c you cant see it. i guess i buy my share of both.

  154. I have been going towards the paper packs doesn't matter what brand as long as they are there heavier paper. Paper packs seem to be easier because all the paper matches.

  157. Glad you had a great trip and got home safely. I love your blog and have been an email subscriber for a couple of years now. Oh my that paper looks lovely. I guess i would have to say DCWV is my favorite paper since I have so much of it, but I really also love K & Company papers. Most of my paper is single sides, but like the double sides when I am going to bend corner or make something where the back side of it will show.
    Thanks

  158. I like all paper, but DCWV is my favorite because they are a good weight and are double-sided. I feel that I can my money worth out of double-sided paper.

  160. I don't have a favorite brand. II check out random pads by the cover that catches my eye. Then I flip thru it and decide if I can use those colors and design. I also go by what the store of choice carries. I like double sided papers as they tend to work together. Looking through my papers I seem to lean towards DCWV.

  165. I subscribe my email. My favorite paper is Close to My Heart because it is the perfect weight paper for cutting with my Cricut Expression without having to do multiple cuts. Heavier cardstock does not always cut all the way through without setting it on multiple which, of course, doubles the length of time for cutting. Thank you for your generosity.

  168. So glad your trip was a success. Look forward to all the "reveals" you will have. Right now, my favourite paper is BO Bunny, but in the next few days that could change when I see something else. LOL Love any crafty good sturdy paper, CM is coming out with some great stuff to.

  169. Congrats on 4 yrs! I love DCWV because of the weight/ease of cutting on the solid colors and weight, ease of cutting and awesome patterns on their DSP. I also use a lot of Recollections and K and Company. Ok, lets face it I'm a paper hoarder! I have no preference to single or double sided paper. It just depends on the project I'm working on. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  172. When I'm using solid colors, I like Recollections from Michael's. It cuts so well in the Cricut. For pattern papers I like K and Company. They have the best designs and it seems, usually the best price. I would love to win a box of goodies. I've learned so much from your site.Thanks.
