I remember when I would spend so much time in the gallery..... but the last year or so, when things changed to one photo layouts, I realized I dont go in there any more. Anyone else??

Unless someone posts a link to something in a thread, I rarely go to the gallery anymore either.

I do go to look for Project Life pages since I'm a newb at it.

I look when I have time. I don't mind the one photo layouts at all. I rarely scrap with just one photo, but I do like to see what other peas are doing. Whether its one photo or multiple photos, there's some really talented work in the gallery!

I go in pretty often! There are so many layouts though, so it's impossible to keep up. I usually browse the "outdoors", "travel", and "8.5x11" sections to narrow it down to my interests.

Yes, I look in the gallery almost every day. Even if someone's style is very different than mine, I still like to look. I can always find a technique, title treatment, detail, etc. to inspire me, even if the overall layout might not be the way I scrap.

I feel like there are many styles represented. Have you tried narrowing your search options to multi-photo layouts?

I hadn't for a while because all the images were wonky, but this past week everything is right again, so I've been hanging out there a bit. I tailor my search, though, since I'm mostly interested in two-page layouts with multiple pictures.

Being able to modify the search parameters makes it a much more pleasant experience.

I do - I love seeing all the ideas and arrangements... I don't have crafty friends around right now so I'm missing out on the sharing of ideas and fun - the gallery is how I get my fix I was also finding that I was getting too wrapped up into things on the NSBR board, and made the choice to check out the general Scrappin' and Gallery more instead...

I am one of those one photo layouters so I don't mind those at all! I go when I am needing some inspiration and then about once or twice a week to admire what others are doing.

When I first came on the board, I used to spend a lot of time browsing the gallery. But it's gotten beyond my 'scrapping' style....I'm pretty simple.

I like looking, but haven't been doing it for a while. I recently started again because of the pages linked to the stash buster challenge that I'm working on.

I have been touched by the kind and gracious remarks made for my simple pages. I have been making an effort to comment on the other links in the challenge, and ended up looking at other pages, too.

Absolutely! It's part of my artistic 'priming' process! I browse almost everyday to keep my artistic juices flowing.

Also, I leave feedback whenever I can. And when I scrap lift (which I do often), I always credit back to the person I lifted AND let them know that I did that.

Being able to leave comments for other Peas is one of the reasons I this site!! I'm a huge Gallery fan.

Every morning! Sometimes I remember to leaves praise, especially if it's a layout that really catches my eye. I usually end up "liking" quite a few, even if it's only to remember a title treatment, matting technique, or the way they used some paper in my stash.

One of my goals this year is to look at that day's postings in the gallery. In the past, I have typed in the subject I wanted when I was in a dry spell. Now I am looking every day and if I bookmark one layout, I feel like it is mission accomplished. (I rarely ever use just one photo on a layout.)

I normally come look at the GS board first & then browse the gallery a few pages back, to see if anything catches my eye.

I love the Gallery and enjoy leaving comments too. I usually check it out 1-2 times a week, so I go to "last 7 days," go to the last page and work my way backwards. I'm sure I don't see everything all the time, but doing it this way usually keeps me up to date after I've missed a bunch of days. My bookmarks definitely grow on a weekly basis, and I go check those out too usually once every "couple few" months or while I'm scrapping.
