I love to ink the edges of paper on my regular scrapbook pages, but am not convinced I want to on my Project Life pages. Do you ink your edges on Project Life?
|Posted: 2/6/2013 10:09:57 PM|
Wow, I never even thought of it because it would be SO much work. Maybe try doing it on one page and see how it compares, if it's worth the extra time to you.

I think part of my problem is trying to make things too complicated! Maybe I should skip the inking.

No, for 2 reasons: it takes too much time, and because it seems like it would be mostly outside edges. I don't ink the edges of my 12x12 background papers, and it seems like it would be messy to ink the edges of every 3x4 and 4x6 card, kwim?

On all the edges no but it I was making my own cards are layering things and thought it needed the definition yes. No way on all though.

I didn't last year. It would have taken too much time. Although I often ink regular layouts.

|Posted: 2/7/2013 2:37:03 AM|I agree. I think it would be too time consuming. I usually only ink the edges of what's on the background paper. I rarely do both, but that's my personal preference .

nope PL is sposed to be quick and easy IMO

If you love the look, and feel like your cards would look nude without it then do it. Otherwise...

|Posted: 2/7/2013 4:17:16 AM|I don't ink or round corners. This is my "quick" project.
|Posted: 2/7/2013 5:36:32 AM|
I started to ink all edges, but already stopped doing so. It's too time consuming. As I make my own cards or use SS I already stopped rounding the corners. This is also too time consuming.

I finished the project last year and am caught up this year and I inked every thing. I just cant lay a piece of paper without ink.

I am an inker. I ink everything!!!
But around May or so of 2012, inking my PL got to be a PITA. I did it for the whole year, cuz it would bug me if it wasn't consistent. But I'm intentionally not inking this year.

It's never even crossed my mind to ink my PL cards. I don't corner round my photos because it takes too much time. I want PL to stay simple.

I don't ink edges in PL, but I use my stamps much more than in other projects!
|Posted: 2/7/2013 8:49:30 AM|I ink my PL cards but not my pics. I also round corners. I am also two weeks behind this year...Gee, I wonder why...
|Posted: 2/7/2013 8:49:32 AM|I ink! It never occured to me not to, I ink almost everything when I scrapbook and PL is considered scrapbooking (I know this 'cause I posted the question). It only takes a few seconds per sheet, one swipe per side.
|Posted: 2/7/2013 9:01:18 AM|
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Depends on what I'm going for on that card/page. And I often ink elements or layers. But then I don't consider PL to be something quick to get done either. I just consider it another medium. I've never really thought that inking was anything that was slowing me down. It is another tool that I use.

Thanks for all the awesome responses! I knew you ladies would have some insight. I'm new to Project Life, and still trying to figure out the style I want to use. I guess that can change. I don't round corners, but un-inked edges look plain to me. Maybe I'll try it for awhile, and stop if it's too time consuming. Thanks again!
