hmmm interesting topic.
When I see a kit I can relate to - go with photos I have I'm all about it.
For me the CT LO's catch my eye more than the actual preview a lot of the time.
When I was scrapping my DD+SIL's wedding book [colors black and white and she had red roses], everything black and white caught my eye. Now, did I need 60+ different kits from 26 different designers for those 135 pages???? Probably not- but I sure had fun!
