I still say that my sizzix machine is the best thing I ever bought, :) but now having resurrected the Blade Runner from the back yard, a little worse for wear but it does cut better on Glass, thanks to a fellow Ebayer I have learn't that is better to try glass than other cutting mats, thankfully I still have my old style Creative memories Circle Cutter, with glass mat, Now I have to re evaluate if I want to sell it cos that glass mat is handy to have.
Another year of craft mornings have started I now have a class of 12 scrapbookers of various skills How can a person teach scrapbooking? it is such an indivual hobby we all have ideas on what we like to see and only ourselves are the best judge of what looks good and what doesn't. If you don't think you are "Creative Enough" to design a page layout, have a look at what others have done. I find if I am not in a creative mood, or have Scrappers Block then I will get inspiration from the many magazines, and the internet is a valuable tool for ideas.
