3 Lbs. Scrap Pack
We used this for a neighborhood children's Easter Card making party. The weight, texture, color and size selection were fantastic! I was very impressed! The kids had a blast and begged to repeat the party soon.

This selection was amazing, especially for the value. Even though it says that the paper varies in weights I was really surprised just how much it varied. The various papers weigh anything from notebook paper to heavy card-stock which gives me a great variety for many different projects.
I was equally impressed by the fact that even though the colors were random, for the most part I received multiples of each color. Other than maybe 2 or 3 colors where I only had 1 or 2 pieces of that particular color most colors had at least 3 or more pieces.
I only had a few pieces with texture, but I'm fine with that. And while I only had one style of patterned paper, I received 4 12x12 sheets of that particular pattern, and 2 8x10 sheets, a beautiful marble/cloud style.
This is not a set for people starting out because the colors and sizes are truly random. At least for me I got several shades of the basic colors (cream, yellow, blue, green and brown) but not really any of your primary colors. The colors were still beautiful but ones you might not otherwise have lying around. Not a set to 'start out with', but absolutely a wonderful set of papers to complete any artists selection.

As the description mentions, there are a variety of sizes, weights, and colors in this pack. I only got a couple of samples (in multiple sizes) that had texture, but this included a really interesting red cardstock that feels kind of like linen. I imagine every pack will vary, but just as an example, these are the quantities of each size that I received: 39 12x12, 38 8.5 x 11, 52 5.5 x 5.5, 53 5x4, 46 4x4, 47 4.25 x 3, 52 3x3. The variety of colors gives me a good selection for my projects, colors that I probably wouldn't buy on their own but that I've been able to use.

This was the best paper selection ever. I am thrilled with the paper assortment of textures and the colors. I highly recommend this.

Very good package of paper
I was very pleased with the quality of the paper. There were a few sheets of thin paper, however, most was very good quality card stock. A little more pink color that I would have liked, but there was a good variety of colors. There was also a variety of sizes, but all were usable. I will definately buy this again.

Nice variety! Great for beginning paper crafters too!
I first ordered this pack some months ago & found these 'scraps' came in handy so many times!
I'm gonna guess half of the package was large sized paper (12x12 & 8.5x11), then there was 5x5 & smaller (down to 2.5x2.5). Most of the paper is cardstock type, with a few textured sheets & some regular paper weight type.
I loved that I rec'd a decent variety of colors. I buy the scrapbooking cardstock booklets & they often come in 'standard' colors; often I end up needing a color I don't have and buy sheet by sheet--that can add up quick!
This scrap pack has lots of basic colors, but others too. Most were solid colors, maybe 1 or 2 patterned or marbled papers.
I liked this so much, I decided to order more, but waited a bit to see if the stock changed...and sure enough it did!
I recently ordered 2 more packs and the colors were different! Liked that very much because I didn't need more of the same. What's more, the price went down the second time around. I hope they will continue to offer this item.
I will definitely keep ordering this scrap pack again and again!

Nice Assortment with Good Price
I've been looking everywhere for some nice paper stock and cards stock for my Cuttlebug project, and found this on OT for a good price.
I've seen much expensive card stock out there but for this price with nice assortment and good quality, I gave this a 4.3 Star....it really came out of my expectation....the reason for not 5 star rating is because of the color selection, most of them runs on a darker color.
Well, maybe it just the pack that I got, I believe it's randomly mixed. I would rather have a brighter mixed, coz most of my project are for kids.
Other than that, this will be your best bet!!! Especially, good for scrapbooking beginner or cutter bug project beginners.
