What are some scrapbooking techniques that you DON'T use on your pages? Doesn't necessarily need to be a technique, it can be anything.

Just thought this might be fun to see what others *don't* enjoy using This isn't meant to put any technique down...it's just for fun!

For me, I don't enjoy...

- Using quotes or poems. I think they're cheesy.

- Vellum. I think it's kind of dated. It seems like vellum was the thing to use like 5-7 years ago, lol.

- Stamping. But that's because I am not a good stamper and I don't need another *thing* to get addicted to!

-Flat stickers. Then again, I don't really use stickers much. I like making my own embellishments.

-Lots of journaling. I just don't like doing it. I'm a very basic journal-er. I do the date, place, names of people. THat's it.

It is not that I don't like this- I think it looks beautiful. I am a person who lOVES to do little detail work. I love hand cutting paper piecing & intricate stuff. I love gluing tiny pieces of paper and cutting out stamped images etc. I did a 32 piece paper piecing. For some reason, I really did not like quilling when I did it. I do not know why. I think it is so pretty though.

It's not really the techniques that I don't like. It's more that I don't like the fact I can't master a technique. I'm a perfectionist and some things just don't click with me no matter how much I practice. It frustrates me to no end. But for the most part I am not a hater. I'll give anything a try. ;^)

I love vellum! I still use it all the time I also like stamping and lots of journaling

Things I don't like... acrylic paints- I bought these when Making Memories started marketing them years ago and it was such a mess having to wait for it to dry and clean brushes all the time. I eventually got rid of them.

I think I like everything else!

I gave my chalks away and

have decided I don't like to stamp unless it's a word or short phrase.

What's the point of this thread?

Why not techniques you love? or techniques you want to try.

There have been multiple threads like this and multiple threads of what you love or want to try.

If you'd rather have one for techniques you love, feel free to create one. I'm sure someone will say they love the stickled pickle technique.

I def think there's tremendous difference between 'hating' a technique, and not being comfortable or adept at it yourself. I love stitching on a LO, but can't get it to work for ME...same with buttons, bling, flowers etc...but I AM LEARNING...and thanks to my supportive friends at SB.com, it's been easier to try something new and get positive feedback, tips, advice from the ones that CAN make it work. Either way, if my family and I love what I make, that's what counts to me.
