Wow there are a lot of great more/less comments. I would like to see more process videos and scrapping imperfect photo/photos. More of scrap room/ organizational videos. More glitter girl. Maybe a combo video of 2 garden girls taking one sketch and showing how they each made it their own and why they used the supplies they picked. Overall I think 2peas is the best place to come visit, shop and stay for a while. Thanks 2peas, garden girls and members for giving this girl lots of eye candy and words to ponder.

Just thought of something else I'd like to see: give three GGs the same three products or color combo. Then compare the LOs they come up with to see the differences in who used what color as the base and how the papers and embellies reinforces the theme or photos.


This!!

And more sketches, more Glitter Girl, more one or two photo layouts and more videos and Garden Girl projects in general please

Printable sketch pdfs to accompany the videos would be great too!

More:
-- more scrapping of older photos. I have a bunch of photos from my childhood taken with crap cameras and full of (hysterically funny) clothing of the time.
-- more scrapping of events or whathave you when all you have are crappy photos or none at all.
-- more scrapping showing using your stash, mixing collections, etc. (I don't think I've ever done a page solely using one collection.)
-- graphic design info about why THIS works and THAT doesn't.

Less:
-- less single-photo pages with a word or two on it. Not my style at all. (I have 5 albums of a trip to Europe and there is exactly one page with one photo only on it.)

    LESS - Product vomit. I don't know how else to explain it. It sounds awful and again while I appreciate the showcasing of the product lines (because it gives some fantastic ideas to those of us who struggle to use what we buy *coughcoughMEcoughcough*) I just want to see every day scrapbooking.


This. I REALLY miss the Cathy Zielske style of scrapbooking.

What a great idea, Pelirroja! Maria

Great thread!

More:
Process videos - I love how Shimelle and Nichol show start to finish how to do things. (I am positive others do too, but those are the ones I have watched.)
Incorporating old with new - I buy a lot of the new stuff, but have a whole stash of old.
Multi picture layouts
Two page layouts

I agree with a whole section for the Cameo. (I don't know what to call it instead of a section.) And how about one for Project Life, too.

Pinkalicious thanks for posting the link for the design school link. I never saw it the first time around. I went through the whole thing, pinned a few layouts, and left some comments.

I scrapbook as a crafty hobby rather than for memory keeping. I love the focus on trends, products, and single photos, to be totally honest. I wonder how 2Peas can find the balance? It has always struck me as leaning toward my side (not that it's really a binary) of scrapbooking.

Wow - this is a great idea!! I'd love to see this.

Also, pages with more than one photo. I'd like to see the Garden Girls and other design teams do this more. I rarely only scrap one photo, usually I use 2 or 3.

I would LOVE to see these two get their own boards or pin a thread at the top! I love all scrappers, but geez, how many ways can you ask the same questions???

This is sheer brilliance. I'd love to see it with GGs who have very different scrapping styles too.



more scrapping of older photos. I have a bunch of photos from my childhood taken with crap cameras and full of (hysterically funny) clothing of the time.



I agree this would be awesome. I'd love to see "scrapping through the ages" where each project could focus on ways to scrap photos from different eras in time. It would be great to see colour combos, embellishment choices and paper patterns that are used for each decade and how it helps tell the story. It would also help a lot of us who have photos from the 70's, 80's and 90's who don't want to necessarily go for the cliched or obvious fashion choices on our pages.

I would love to see more of Glitter Girl!!
I like how she talks you through her projects step by step.

I like the P's website and what it has to offer.
I would like to see the forums stay as they are.
There are a good mix of topics in General Scrappin' area.
It makes it more enjoyable to read because of the variety.
I have seen first hand how too many forums ruins a MB.
The sense of the crafting community is lost when everyone is spread out to different forums.

I started coming here more often lately because of the restrictions of products you can talk about on another MB. When I scrapbook and make cards I use a variety of products. I would like to be able to mention them as well. Here I can do that!

Overall, I am very happy with the P's website.
I don't want to see them change a thing.

I would also like to see a mix of products and manufacturers used in projects. I have a variety of supplies and would like to get ideas on how to mix them up in my projects.

I'd like to see some of the design team (JILL) take those divided page protectors used in PL and fill them to create a LO. It would not be a PL design per se, just using the pockets to fill and create a LO. Does this make sense? I like to do 12x12 LO's but somehow I keep thinking it would look cool to have one (or more) of the divided page protectors LO's thrown in for fun.
