Spill Some Scrappy Beans

Post by Flasher »

So, tell me a couple of things.

1.  What will I never see on one your layouts?
2.  Who will I see the least in your books?

❓ 😀

1.  Washi.  I hate that it's transparent -- just don't like it!
2.  Me!  But, I'm getting much better at scrapping myself.

1.)  Never say never...  I will try it all, once.  Food?  I think I would draw a line at food.  Critters and all.

2.) Me.  I take the pictures, and I take a  lot of guff from my 16 and 24 year-olds when I try to selfie myself in.  I am okay with it.  I tell the stories.  They know I was there.

Good questions!!!
(1) I don't see with a sewing machine- I've literally broken EVERY one I've ever touched! So unless someone machine-stitches for me, I mostly just use stamps or rub one for my stitching.
(2) I STILL haven't scrapped about my real father, yet. Only just a few years ago did I find out that he'd died when I was a little girl. I spent most of my life just thinking that he disappeared from me. It's still weird, and I have relatives on his side that are waiting for me to get in touch. Maybe one day...

1.  What will I never see on one your layouts? I will say eyelets but could also be machine stitching as I don't have a sewing machine

2.  Who will I see the least in your books? Hmmm...maybe my brother's family as I don't get many pictures of them or my sister's - for the same reason.

I am not really a fan of Washi either.  You can get the same effect with paper.  Haven’t bought any in a very long time.

Not really sure.  Maybe me, cause I mainly work on grandkid layouts.  But there are plenty of me in my travel albums.

2.  Who will I see the least in your books? Probably my Dad. He doesn't like his picture taken

1. Buttons. Not a button fan at all.

2. My DS. Does not like his picture taken and although he loves my layouts he doesn't want to be in any of them.

1- those big word cut files, the ones that take up the whole page. Not only do I have no ability to cut one, I also have no interest. 

2- I have no idea who I scrap least,I include myself and all the relatives that we see. I don’t scrap friends too often, but maybe that’s because there has been a pandemic for a while now and I would if we saw them more.

1. Machine stitching - I have a brand new Brother sewing machine that I bought specifically for sewing on layouts but for the life of me, I can't get it to work without the thread bunching up.  I keep telling myself, I need to watch the DVD that came with it over and over but I just don't have the patience.

2.  Unfortunately that would be our oldest grandson, Jace.  We currently have little contact with him.  He lives in Tulsa OK but that's not the only reason.  He doesn't have a great relationship with his father (my stepson) and even legally changed his last name from Cassidy to that of his ex-stepfather since he had a half brother by him.

1. I’d have to say embossing. I used to have a whole bunch of stamps with tons of different embossing powders but haven’t had the desire to restock those since I started scrapbooking again last year. 

2. My brother-in-law. He’s one of the coolest people I know but he’s rarely in photos..he and my sis have even stopped being in photos for Christmas cards!

1 Washi tape. I only use some if a challenge calls for it.

2. Friends. Just don't have enough photos with them to scrapbook.

1.  What will I never see on one your layouts?  Never is strong... but I dislike holographic stickers.  I like the alphas and on some embellishments.
2.  Who will I see the least in your books? me... although, I am getting in more photos so that may change.  My Mom is rare as well...

I never say never, either, but you will not see wooden embellishments, due to the lignin.

The thing you will see least in my books is “daily moments.” I just don’t take the time to take those photos!

1. Never say never but rarely will you see journaling on my layouts. Only the basics like who, what, when and where. I used to journal a lot whey I first started scrapbooking but now I don't.

2. Like most, I rarely photograph myself and adult photos of my youngest son. He just doesn't want to be in photos any more.

I'm going to say all the newer mixed media. I don't have the resources to keep buying and buying supplies. I don't like the messy stuff either. I'd rather buy some beautiful PP and then create the layers to make it special.

I try to include everyone around me. But don't have photos of certain family members from previous generations due to divorces, etc. I do treasure the heritage photos that are available and enjoy scrapping them too.

1. Photo corners -i like the way they look, especially in vintage pages, but I can't ever get them on right

2. Me- I'm usually taking the photos so there are never very many of me
