Question Of The Day - Have you ever purchased a pre-made LO? If so, do you enjoy them? If not, why or why not?

p.s. As always, if you have examples, we want to see!

No! I don't see the purpose. I enjoy the hobby, not just having the finished product.

I did buy one once when I first started scrapbooking. I brought it home and copied it piece by piece. That was before I knew there were such inspiring sources as Simple Scrapbooks s and scrapbook.com. ;^)

I purchased a couple for my son's album. One for a father and one for a mother. We have completed the father LO.

Yes, I took my kids to DC a couple of years ago, and before I went, I would go into scrapbook store s and buy everything they had which related to DC, so I bought this page. I like it because it looks like I put a lot of work in it, but it was one of the easiest to do. I didn't like it because it was hard to find related pictures of the correct orientation and size.

No, I don't see the point in spending $$ on something I could do myself..... I'm cheap that way!

No, but I sold a few of my own on the auction site. I gave that up when they sold for less money than what it cost to make the layout.

My first thought on this question was no but I just remembered that our dollar store carries them
(and they are pretty nice!). I only used one and gave the other 3 or 4 away that I bought. Just not for me.

I use quick pages for digital on occasion.

No, if I want something "different", I use a sketch or go wandering through the gallery for ideas. I like to make my own layouts.

i did get a LO when i first started scrapbooking. it looked like a lot of work was put into it with all the different stickers and embelishments. so i figured it would be cheaper to just buy the LO since the embelishments on the page appeared to have cost more than what i bought it for. i got it and was slightly disappointed. the embelishments were just scanned and some poorly printed onto the LO. oh well, live and learn. if anything it taught me how to scraplift, since this was before i knew about the different idea books and magazines.

I buy cards occasionally if I don't have time to make one. However, I never join card swaps because I prefer to give people cards made by me than by someone else.

I have not purchased completly done pages, but I have purchased the "kit" to make the pages at my LSS. They have some really cute pages. I actually want to 8X8 Lego album for my DS to document all his creationd but it has premade pages in it.
