3.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THE COLORS...BUT I HATE THE PAPER =(, December 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Project Life by Becky Higgins Core Kit - Clementine Edition (Misc.)
I finally made the decision to start Project Life in 2013...so I bought the Clementine Core Kit (I also bought Cobalt & Turquoise Core Kits) because I absolutely loved the colors and designs used. When I received the package I was very disappointed to find out that the paper used was NOT card stock. It is a very thin paper...almost like printer paper, not at all the quality of paper that I thought would have been used. If the paper would have been thicker...like the type of card stock we Scrappers are used to I would have given this item 5 stars. Knowing what I know now I wish I would of just bought the digital editions & printed my own cards out at home on actual card stock.

The thinner paper (not card stock) is so helpful. The kit is large, and I have used 2 of them to document 2011 and 2012. If the paper was heaver, the binder would be way to think/heavy. I have not actually purchased a kit from the new printers, but I am sure they are similar in quality to the kits I have gotten in the past. Once the cards are in the pockets, it is not goin to matter much how think they are anyway.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. I have always bought the paper kits but a friend does digital and prints on card stock. Her albums are only slightly thicker than mine (and she uses other thicker things I don't use, so that could also be a factor). I truly think these could and should be printed on at least the "lightest" card stock. As for it not making a difference once they are in the pocket, that depends on what you are factoring in. When a person turns the pages of my album, they are floppy, have to be sort of smoothed out at the "binder" side, etc. My friends turn much more smoothly and lay flat "naturally". The slightly heavier pages give a sense of "quality" to the book -- mine feel flimsy and, to be quite honest, cheap.

I can see where you're coming from but for me personally I would have preferred the paper to be thicker. Once the paper is in the pocket you can tell the difference...if feels thin and the pages can be kind of floppy. I'm an avid scrapper and have found that even when I scrap a regular layout the thicker paper does a better job. I just buy the digital PL kits and print at home so that I can ensure Im getting the type of paper I want.

Thanks for your response. I also agree that the heavier pages have a certain look of quality to them as well. I will continue to buy the digital kits and print at home. That seems to work best for me.
