Me and some scrappy friends meet once a month at my house to work with Basic Grey page kits.
Everything is precut and numbered in these kits, so you really don't have to think at all when you scrap.
We can focus on chatting and eating instead!
Just as important as scrapping I would say:)
Here are some examples of the kits:
Aren't they gorgeous?
These kits cost $18 so that makes it $ 4.50 per layout.
Would you say that's cheap or expensive for a scrapbook page?
I would say that's a pretty decent price since they all come with rub-ons, stickers and chipboard.
Have you ever done the math regarding how much you spend on each of your layouts?
I haven't really...until today when I looked at my latest pages.
My pages ARE CHEAP! Hopefully not cheap-looking, but they don't cost much at all to create.
Look at this one:
I used one sheet of cardstock, some scraps for the green mats and the hand cut leaves.
I only used two thin strips of patterned paper and the flowers are hand cut from patterned paper. That's all.
The green border is a stamp. Add a few brads. I would say this page cost about $2- $3. Tops!
Same thing with this one: very little patterned paper, some buttons and that's about it.
This last one has a bit more patterned paper. I hand cut all the flowers and circles and added Stickles. Still I don't think it adds up to more than $3 total.
Do my pages look cheap to you?
I know that I hardly ever use "bling", simply because I don't like how it looks.
Same thing with flowers from Prima Marketing. I prefer to make my own;)
I try to use more than one photo per page, which gives me less space to fill with embellishments.
I'm curious to find out approximately how much you spend on your scrapbook pages.
Will you do the math for me, please?
