New Scenic Route...

New items from Scenic Route! I have to say I had VERY high expectations of them...

Ashville...

Sumner...


What do you think? I first saw these a week or two ago and I was instantly disappointed. Don't get me wrong - I DO like them and I will most likely enjoy scrapping with them a lot. However for me they had a LOT to live up to after the fantastic collections of "Laurel" and "Metropolis" which I think has to be my most favourite papers of all last year. I loved the patterns and the colours!! They just made you smile and want to scrap...


These new ones...they have the same type of great patterns etc (and that's why I know I will like them once I get over my initial disappointment) but they are lacking that something extra which the "older" collections had because of the colours. These are a bit too muted for my liking. Nothing wrong with muted, but I think you can make muted really "pop" by adding an extra brighter colour as an accent colour. But of course you can do this yourself...so I'm sure I will find myself matching these with a bright accent colour in form of cardstock, brads etc and make myself happy anyway LOL!

With so much green in the range, I'm sure you'll find it very usable. They've also added some items to the older ranges.

I agree, am a bit disappointed with the SR stuff this time around. Sumner is almost doable as the colours are my taste but not totally convinced overall. Maybe it's a good thing so I can use some of the SR stuff I already have!
