Self control...

A question posted the other day at CMK with regards to CHA got me thinking...
If you could only choose ONE collection what would it be?

This is so difficult to answer with just ONE collection. My first reaction was to just list off all the fun things I have seen and think I just "have to have", but then I stopped to really think about the question.
What if I could really only have ONE collection?
What would it be?
The fact that I seriously pondered this question probably says something about how "sick" I am when it comes to scrapping, but aren't we all??? LOL!!!!
Anyway, I put some serious thought into this and was really unable to come up with just ONE collection that could do everything, but I was able to come up with ONE manufacturer!
All 4 of their new lines would allow me to scrap my "to do" list of photos at this very moment.
Fascinating, Fetching and Captivating are my faves, but I may also want Enchanting for photos of my nieces!

OK, so I picked ONE thing. But reality still exists, and I still want more than just ONE thing, so the rest of my list consists of:
Scenic Route
Sassafrass Lass
October Afternoon
Narratives (totally perfect for my wedding photos!!!)
and Prima.

However, I really only want pieces from each of these at this point in time!
If I could even just stick to this list, I would be doing pretty well I think!

So what about you...what ONE collection or manufacturer would you choose if you could only pick ONE?

Now some scrappy goodness to share!
My second hybrid LO created using the new kit by Amy Teets called All Mine! You can find it here: ACOT.
I printed out the papers and created my own layered flowers with punches.
I also manipulated the color of the brown journaling spot in the kit and made it pink!
Here's what I created!
(Supplies: Digital Kit: Amy Teets Designs All Mine; Chipboard: Magistical Memories Potty People; Chipboard Alpha: Making Memories;Velvet Leaves: Prima; Sticker: Prima; Punches: EK Success and Stampin’ Up!; Alcohol Inks: Ranger)

I hope you all have a scrappy good week!

And don't forget to share with me what ONE collection or manufacturer you would choose!



  1. LOVE that layout and honestly, i haven't really followed the new releases this time around. :( i think i would choose Pink Paislee anyway. lol

  2. My gosh, your page is beautiful, Juliana! Love, love the design, and how cool you're using digi elements. I am SO intimidated by that stuff. That journaling piece you altered is so pretty, and your journaling is really sweet. Great job.
    can you believe that I haven't even been looking at all the new stuff?? crazy, huh? I have seen the new PP and agree that it's really nice. I've seen the new Webster's Pages and love that. can't wait to get my hands on their new alphas!

  3. I would have to say Prima this year!!

  4. YIKES, I can't pick just one either! LOL!! TOO MUCH goodnes to choose from!

    Love your layout and all your details! Lovely!

  5. Love that hybrid layout!! You so make me want to play with my digi stuff more!

    If I HAD to chose only one - it would have to be Prima this year - with PP a very close second. ;)

  6. Your work is so inspiring! How does one pick just one collection? Can't I have them all? My first choice is a tie between Pink Paislee and Crate Paper. I also love some of the new Basic Grey. Prima also looks pretty yummy. OH, I just don't know. So many choices and so little money.
    Keep inspiring me and those of us out in blog land!

  7. ITA with you about Pink Paislee. My LSS owner isn't crazy about it, so I don't know how much she'll order in...
    I also can't wait for the new OA. I haven't seen anything new from SR, but I wasn't crazy about Garland.
    Love your layout, Juliana! It's gorgeous!!

  8. What a beautiful layout and the journaling is awesome! Is that your handwriting?
    Not sure what I would pick. There are way too many things out this time around and I love most of it. When it comes time to buy I will only pick a few things here and there.

  9. hi you!!!
    you know how much i love your embrace layout!

    one collection? oh gosh i'll have to ponder that one!

    hopefully this spring you and i can shop together at my favorite mega store in South Bend so we can get a few pieces of each collection. :)

  10. What an amazing page, Juliana! I love your handcut word! Love your CHA picks. I agree about PP. I think my ONE collection would be Jenni Bowlin. ;)

  11. Wonderful layout!!! Yeah, its too hard to pick just one....There is so many wonderful releases out there by so many companies...I just spread the wealth and buy it all (well almost it all) :) lol. Though Pink Paislee, Basic Grey, Dream Street are on my top-top list. :)

  12. I seriously love love love that LO, juliana! Gorgeous!! I really couldn't pick just one! There is so much new stuff out there that looks great - I want it all ;-)

  13. Oh wow Juliana, that layout is beautiful! I'm a hugh fan of PP and OA. Right now they are my two favourites. I've always loved SR but I haven't seen anything from them yet. I also adore MME. I haven't been too crazy about all the releases this year, but I figure that has more to do with the fact that I know I won't be buying much right now (hubby is under-employed right now so we are watching the money!) plus I have so much, I would feel guilty buying everything! :) BUT at the end of the day I know I will be getting all three of the collections as you. I don't need enchanting either ~ no girls! :)
