Is there one (or 2 or 3...) scrapbooking product(s) that however you might try, you just can't get inspired by it or struggle with?

(for me it's Masks / grungeboard !).

Gosh, I feel like I'm badgering you all with all these questions, ;D. So interesting to see what everyone thinks though!

I don't know. My closest friends know and enjoy looking at my books, but I don't tell a lot of people. I just find it a little too hard to explain what it's really all about to people who don't already know, KWIM? And when I do try to explain, usually the words "I swear it's not corny" leave my mouth at least once.


Love that bit about it being not corny...I totally hear ya on this!

It was beyond cool!! I don't think my feet hit the floor for a week! The hardest was not being able to tell anyone for awhile!
No we can no longer apply - I like that "once a master always a master" ;D


That was the hardest secret I ever had to keep! You just want to shout it out to the world!

If you had to narrow it down to one scrappy or non-scrappy website (which may be impossible!), which one is the one that gives you most inspiration?!

And just because I can, and may never have another opportunity to use him: O0 .


Oh, I think O0 is the absolute best!!

There are a number of brands and/or products that I see other people do amazing things with, but that I always struggle with. Paper patterns that are very bold and large and graphic are always difficult for me. And I'm with you on the grungeboard. I'm kind of lost on that. :)

Okay, if you're up for it...share with us something that you think we would all think of as unlikely as being something "true" about you as a person or an experience that you've had, etc. Come on Divas...surprise us!

Maybe we all need 'definition' cards to hand out ;D . My husband had some given to him when he started his career, as no-one ever knew what an Actuary did ( I still don't, ha ha). Not that he ever did hand them out, because can you imagine?

... Er, just wait a minute, hmm *fishes around in wallet*, A-ha!, if you'd just care to read that, you'll find out exactly what I do. *Expectant look at the other person*. Yeah, they'd think you were so weird.

OK, so I talked myself out of the idea. But, if they did exist, wouldn't they just be the prettiest definition cards ever?!
