A little question

I love scrapbooking I love making pages to preserve memories. When I post one of my pages here I don't often give details of what I have used. I'm wondering if fellow scrapbookers would like to know such things as the name of the papers I use the fonts and embellishments etc?
for example in this layout I used just one piece of patterned paper by My Minds Eye called Lost and Found Portobello Road Party Celebrate Paper and I stamped the 'birthday' onto cream card using Banana Frog Doobie stamps. The doily behind the photo was created by using a corner punch by Martha Stewart.
Celebrate special birthday

Is that helpful or is it just too much to read through?

I have the same question in my mind. I do the same as you. I do get a bit bored by reading details like that sometimes as what I do is decide on what I can use in my existing stash. However I think it is useful sometimes to identify key pieces so that people can track them down if they want. I have followed short links to find out more. My that was a wordy answer!

I've often wondered this when I post layouts. For me, I enjoy seeing the layouts and don't necessarily need to know about the supplies. I often only mention something if it's unique or an item I just totally fell in love with.

Hmmm, this is an interesting question Mary. I think that I prefer to see the layout and then SOMETIMES I want to know details of the supplies used. Is there a way to make the extra detail available to those that want it eg. 'click here for supplies' Sorry, very wordy response I've given here. I'll be watching the responses you get with interest.

I love knowing what materials people have used....and sometimes it encourages me to buy (not sure if thats a good thing)

I think seeing what you used is nice. :)

I love your blog - all the photos and layouts. :)

That is another gorgeous layout Mary

Very interesting question! I rarely read all the fine detail when someone does list all the products used; if something particularly beautiful does catch my eye then I might want to know where it's from, but I can always ask in that case :-) But this is, of course, just my opinion! xx

I usually add details about what I use on my pages so I will be interested to see your responses too Mary.
Great simple question.

I voted no - though it should be qualified really! No I don't want to read great long lists of supplies on anyone's blogs (or even that many in the UKS galleries either). However there are times when someone has used an unusual technique e.g. with a particular ink, or a fancy stamp, or a textured paper - then it's useful. But really, if we want to know, we can always ask!

Mini said...

I voted 'yes' though I wouldn't be bothered to go down a long list. Details like how you made the doilley are interesting. Love the page, BTW.

Oooh this is a great question Mary. I don't read great long lists of products either, but I like to know some techniques used, like that beautiful doily you made!
I always want to know what size people are scrapping in, it is not always obvious to me!

jo said...

If I see something I like I usually want to know more - so it is great to have that information instead of having to ask.

Lizzie said...

Good question! I sort-of agree with some people, who say they don't like to read great long lists of supplies. Maybe it's nice to see information about the key items on a layout - or something that is a bit different or special. Like your clever doiley, or stamped letters.

Cheri said...

I voted "no" because usually I am just enjoying the beauty of the layout and don't care what manufacturer's products went into it. If I really want to know, I ask in the comments.

I'm a digiscrapper and find that on the sites where I post that it's customary to credit the products. Since most digiproducts are from kits, I usually credit the entire kit rather than the individual piece.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
