I've never done a RAK like this before, so here goes. I got a good deal on some Heidi Swapp clear 'Thank You' stamps yesterday and I thought I would RAK them for you wonderful ladies. I thought it was appropriate since they say 'thank you' and I feel like I should thank you all for helping me learn more about my favorite hobby!

Post what you believe is your most vaulable advice to fellow scrapbookers. I have 5 of them up for grabs! And I will raid my stash for something fun to add to it when I ship.

I plan to randomly draw numbers for the winners based on your post number.

I'll pick the numbers tonight when I get off from work (10pm cst) and PM the winners for an address. Good Luck!

THE WINNERS ARE...

I added an extra one because I found I have a duplicate of 'happy birthday' as well to give someone. Thanks everyone for the great advice!

The most valuable advice for fellow scrapbookers that I can offer would be that there is no right or wrong way to scrapbook (no rules) just have fun with it! Thank you for offering a RAK... That is very kind of you!

Everyone has there own style. There is no right or wrong way to scrap. (I need to remember this a lot for my own pages)

Thanks for the offer.

My advice for scrappers is to take classes for good advice. I have learned so much from classes that I have taken from both the stores around, people that teach out of their house (they are consultants for different companies) and the CK conventions. Spend the extra money and do one of these. There is always something fun to learn.

My advice to fellow or new scrappers is to join sb.com to get all kinds of wonderful inspiration, advice and even friendships.

Enjoy this craft journey we're making - remember, as much satisfaction and happiness that you get out of scrapbooking, this gift to your descendants will be even more precious. What would you give to have a personal letter (with pictures!) from your great grandmother? Or to know that she thought of you probably before you were born? Ways and means is just incidental to the finished layout - love every minute!

Thank you!

My advice (which I don't always take, mind you) is to journal. Even if it's just who/when...and even if you just scribble it on the back of the lo.

My advice agrees with an earlier post that there is no right or wrong way to scrapbook, but to expand a little on that I always suggest scrapping with others so that you try new things!!

I agree about no right/wrong way to scrap. One thing that I think is good advise, but I have a hard time following myself, is to USE your stuff. It's easy to want to save stuff for something it *might* be perfect for in the future, but there will always be MORE stuff.

Continue to try new techniques a little at a time but don't overwhelm yourself with everything all in one page. Its okay to experiment with new things, but its also okay to keep it simple. As time goes on its fun to see a progression in skills and techniques throughout each book!

what a nice gesture!

I would have to say follow your own style with scrapping (even if it doesn't necessarily go with the current trends). In the end, you'll be so much happier with the final outcome of your work.

I say have fun with your creations and don't be afraid to try something new! I have surprised myself many times with a whim that turned out nicely!

My advice... keep your camera on you at all times. You never know when a scrapable moment will present itself

Always keep a sharp blade in your trimmer and a good pair of small sharp scissors handy! I love my Cutterbee's!

My advice is no matter what you create while scrapping, have fun with it, and always remember to document the everyday things, not just the special occasions.

Especially when beginning, buy what you need for the pictures you have. It's so easy to go way overboard buying cute stuff.

My advice is not much different from the others. It is simply to be yourself and let that reflect in your LO's.Don't be afraid to try new things but also don't think that you have to do the latest trend if it doesn't fit your style.

Thank you for the kind offer!

My advice is don't compare your layouts to SB "celebrities" or the ones you see in online galleries. You should scrap only for yourself. If you like it, that's all that matters.
