Do you make fat pages or thin pages?
Just wondering what kinds of embellishments other people here are using. I like thinner pages myself and use die cuts and some artificial flowers, buttons, glitters(love stickles!), ribbons... But my pages are not overly thick. Same with cards, I try to go thinner rather than thicker, tho for a hand delivered one I can get a little more thick. Do you make thick or thin? And either way what kinds of embellishments do you like to use? Just curious Smile
Thanks for any responses. Big Grin Happy Winter, it snowed at my house today!!

Well, I do both for my name albums and layouts. I don't make them so thick that they won't stay closed. I use butterflies and flowers, these are the two I use all the time. I don't use glitter, but use rub-ons and die cuts, some buttons, jewells, lots of blings.

The only thing I like about winter is Christmas. We don't get snow.

I don't really think about it when I create a page, but my pages can get pretty bulky. I've learned that cards going through the mail need to be light, or it's too costly to mail. I'm working on a Disney album that I've added way too many pages to. Talk about bulky!


Happy to be in God's service.
