When I was in my local scrapbook store not to long ago I bought really pretty paper and kind of kidded, "This page is going to cost me a fortune with everything on it!"
The owner of the store laughed and said that with her customers the average cost they spend on a scrapbook page was $50.00.
I asked her how you can spend $50.00 on a scrap book page and she said, "Nice paper, a couple sheets of cardstock, maybe more papers, ribbons, flowers, embellies, developing photos. She said it isn't hard to hit $50.00 a page.
I've never done a page that cost anywhere close.
My average page is:
$1.00 cardstock (average becuase I often use 2)
$1.00 patterned paper
$4.50 diecuts if I use them
$ .50 photo developing
$2.00 misc items (sometimes flowers, brads.
That is $9.00 and I normally spend more around $4.00-$6.00 per page. Once in a while I may put $15.00 on a page if I've bought a lot of epensive embellies and flowers, but that is rare.
What do you consider the average cost you spend per page and what have you spent on a really special page where you went crazy to make it beautiful?
Not factoring in Cricuts, cartridges, embossing machines, tools, or any other things - just items you bought and put on the page.
I'm curious about this one - $50.00 sounds like a very high average.
