I agree...too many people get seriously butthurt these days. They should make a PSA about it.

Even though a question has been asked before, there may be someone who answers the questions in a way it wasn't answered before. I don't think it hurts to ask the question for example, how do you store your pattern paper or what is the best adhesive more than once. New things pop up all the time. There may be a great new idea or product since the last time the question was asked.

I think when you're very comfortable in a community or group you tend to be more frank. That may be what happens sometimes. You say what you feel, and those familiar with you probably wouldn't take it wrong but a newbie might.

Just my opinions, and we all know the saying about opinions.....right?

Yep! Any opinion that doesn't agree with mine needs a few apple pie shooters until they see the light. Or pass out.

I cannot be the only one with this view....


If the question, for example, is STILL showing in the first or second page of the forums, WHY does anyone need to ask it again (and again, and again....)????

Just revive the most current thread on the subject, and add to it.

It's kind of ridiculous to look in a forum section, and 2/3 of the questions are all the SAME topic.





{and, yes, in the grand scheme of things, this should NOT annoy me. To me, it's like opening a package of something with GIGANTIC instructions, and calling the manufacturer FIRST before reading the instructions.}

Pass out? Did someone say they want to play Pass Out? That is an awesome drinking game. I handed those reins over to my little brother when he went to college.

Sure--how many times shall I repeat it for you?






Absolutely I'll share!!
I may not kiss and tell, but I'll drink and tell
It's super easy (the recipe, not me )

You will need:
2 gallons of apple cider
1 cup of brown sugar
1 bottle (750ml) alcohol
lots of cinnamon sticks

Put everything except the alcohol in a big pot and bring it to a slow boil - being sure to keep stirring. Once the sugar has dissolved, let it cool completely. Add the alcohol. Put a few cinnamon sticks in some empty bottles, then pour in your concoction and store it for awhile. The longer it sits, the smoother it gets.

You can alter it to your taste, so if you want it sweeter, add more sugar. More or less cinnamon-y tasting, add or remove some sticks.

Apple cider is heavier than apple juice, so if you like the consistency of the juice better, use that instead.

I use Everclear (which is 190 proof BUT remember, you're making a little more than 2 gallons from that one bottle, so its not as strong as it sounds), but you can sub vodka as well.

I usually store it for about 2 months, then put it in the freezer a couple of days before I'm going to serve it.

I serve it in cordial glasses because more than that at one time could be a little much

Cheers!!!

I think we need a good sangria recipe too.

It is still summer and we have a few more nice days so want to take advantage of that.

Not sure I have a "good" one, but I threw one together this summer that tasted pretty good.

I put a bottle of sweet red wine, a pound of fruit salad, a can of either sprite or ginger ale - I forget which - and a splash of oj into a big pitcher and stirred it all up.

Nah - it's a horse Peg - see the saddle.

But the other one was distrubing - one was biting the head and making it bleed - the other was biting it and then whiping it.

I have been forever working on a layout and it is most possibly my masterpiece. I think I like it better than anything else I have ever done but boy, was it a lot of work! But I love the results.

Linda - it is a scraplift from one of yours that I always through was so awesome that I made a sketch of it. I took off on my own colors and embellies and actual arrangement but you can tell it is a scraplift. I can't wait to hear your opinion - just don't tell me I did a sucky job. I got WAY outside my normal comfort zone on it.

I post chronologically so will probably be about 2 weeks or if you want to pm email address I'll try to take a picture today (if the weather clears up) and send it to you.

Henri - I know, I was on smartphone and couldn't see it. It just looked like a saddle to me, couldn't tell it was an upside down horse. Betty is going to get her eyes checked.

Off to pm you. I love your LOs so I'm interested to see how you are going out of your comfort zone.

You're supposed to READ instructions? Well that might explain a thing or two.


Sangria - noting that I do NOT like sweet drinks
2 oranges
2 lemons
2 limes
I use the food processor slicing blade to get lots of nice thin slices.

Throw 'em in a pitcher with a cup of brandy. If you must have sugar add some now but I never do, I prefer it to be acidic and refreshing. Mash it all up just a little bit with a spoon and stick it in the fridge for an hour or so.

Add a bottle of cheap red wine. If you've got a TJ's Charles Shaw Merlot actually works very well. Yes, you can use a friendly little jammy pinot noir if you must. A cheap chianti would be fab. Stir it all up and back in the fridge for an hour.

You can add juice or club soda if you want to, I don't. Pour over a little ice and enjoy.

I got distracted by all of this fun beverage talk again, and the little people, and that poor poor horse.

For the record, I 100% agree with you Linda.

I know I don't have to answer the 5th thread about best adhesive but I can still be annoyed because that topic is hogging the frong page and I want to see other fun topics.

BTW, in case you're wondering, the ATG is the best adhesive there is. The Zig or Tombow pens are great for small pieces. The Xyron X is annoying to use and whatever adhesive one of the girls in my card club uses is the absolute WORST.

If you don't agree with me, you're obviously wrong.

Bravo! The last 3 posts have hit the nail directly on the head. If you don't to "waste your time" reading a post, just don't read it. But don't begrudge someone else from asking a question. You just might be surprised sometime to discover a response from someone that you hadn't thought of!

Here's my opinion -

Anybody want the apple pie recipe again?

Peg I remember "Pass Out" very well - I used to have that game. ANd the pink elephant cards.

Did you play "Hi Bob"? Another fun drinking game. It was popular in colleges in the 80's. All you needed was a tv showing a rerun of the Bob Newhart show or a tape/DVD of the old Bob Newhart shows. Whenever anyone says, "Hi Bob', which every character does repeatedly in the show, you take a drink.

It's only a 30 minute show but you won't make it to the end.

Peg will take a picture of the layout and email it to you. Please don't tell me it is sucky. It looks a little like Lindas. I'll go take a picture now.

Henri - I've heard of "Hi Bob" but never played it. My friends and I tried to do a 100 shots of beer in 100 minutes once. I think we made it to about 60 and then lost track of time and gave up and just laughed a lot.

If the thread is about cheesecake, you better put that in the "non scrapbook related" section or you might cause a stir. Kind of like if a digital LO is posted in the general LO section.

There are bling flourishes on each side of the picture in blue rhinestones and blue pearls. They do not show up on this picture but on the layout they really pop - They blend just enough but still, they add a lot. But it just didn't come through on the photo.

This is way out of my comfort zone - I mostly do "blocked" layouts for travel.

Judy started a recipe section but it is under the scrap chat section and I never remember to go there. I'll find her on the boards and see if she will post it to another place - like non-scrapbooking. We need a recipe section. WE had so much fun posting recipes one night.

Peg - thank you for your comments on my layouts. You too Rosey. I'm proud of it because it is way way way outside my comfort zone.

It's beautiful! Great job.

But... I can't take ANY credit. I lifted mine from Kaye222 (her layout titled "faith"). I couldn't find it quickly to point to.

So, very nice lift of a lift!

Judy started a recipe section but it is under the scrap chat section and I never remember to go there. I'll find her on the boards and see if she will post it to another place - like non-scrapbooking. We need a recipe section. WE had so much fun posting recipes one night.
Peg - thank you for your comments on my layouts. You too Rosey. I'm proud of it because it is way way way outside my comfort zone.



Gelidy Gelato started a new recipe post http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/15799... about the same time I started mine http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/15800... and I called it Recipe Corner. I put mine under Scrap Chat on the Gen. forum because I can't keep up with all of the Sbing forums and never even think to go to the other ones. When I read the posts under Scrap Chat they didn't have much about scrapping...as if this current thread does either

I don't care if it's moved or deleted...I just don't know how. Anything with recipes (especially chocolate!) is good, no matter where it is, but for me...I just don't think to go to other forums. If someone knows how to move/delete it, let me know~ I've got to work on my snapfish order now, but I'll check back later~

And Henri...your LO is gorgeous. You definitely need to get out of your comfort zone more often...but I know it's very time consuming and when you have a zillion pictures... ~Judy

Totally off topic....

Henri Jean. This is the layout (by Kaye222) that inspired mine that you lifted (does that make any sense?)

Bravo! The last 3 posts have hit the nail directly on the head. If you don't to "waste your time" reading a post, just don't read it. But don't begrudge someone else from asking a question. You just might be surprised sometime to discover a response from someone that you hadn't thought of! (Some of you have wasted a lot more time putting people down on this post than you would have if you'd simply skipped it in the first place and let the rest of us read.)



I think we were just having a few laughs rather than putting people down. Thats really not my style.



I agree. I am not putting the person down AT ALL. I am also having a few laughs and discussing the ideas and topics, not laughing at or dissing the person.





I. don't. know. about. that.
You dissed me a few times.

That is the one that inspired me! I just wish the flourishes and bling had shown up - they really jazzed it up. It looks kind of plain with those spaces empty.

Glad you approve of it and thank you everyone else for kind words.

Maybe the recipe corner would be fine where it is Judy if people would go over there. Let's try it at mention that it is there. I don't know where Gelidy's recipe thing is anymore but will look for it to see if anything else has been added there.

I put a cheesecake recipe up but will also put it on the Recipe corner to keep that thread alive.

I put the link to the other thread also...have to scroll through some extra stuff, but then there are recipes. I just haven't been to it since the first day since I don't have time to go to other forums...but I haven't been to the one I started either because I didn't think anyone was using it :>) I'll check it out...if I ever get my snapfish pics ready for ordering. Just need to get away from it from time to time :>) ~Judy

I've seen that....the no bake one, right?
Are they good, though?!

I don't think it's possible to make BAD cheesecake.
[/quote]


Here's hoping!!

I'm gonna start a new thread
[/quote]

If the thread is about cheesecake, you better put that in the "non scrapbook related" section or you might cause a stir. Kind of like if a digital LO is posted in the general LO section.

What happens if I post a digital recipe in the card section?!

If no one gets mad because it's not "scrappy", then go ahead in the Scrap Chat at the top of the General forum...Recipe Corner. It's an easy place to get to if we all know it's there :>)
http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/15800...

There are a couple of recipes there, but I bet we can get a bunch of good ones~Judy

couple of things.....I consider myself fairly new here because I am a "lurker" like someone said...I believe it was Henri Jean. She also said that many "new" people post a question just to have an "in" into the thread...I did that one time when I was really brand new. Only got one answer or maybe two...anyway...not many...so I haven't ever posted another question. No one's fault but my own and not blaming anyone...just encouraging you who are such good scrappers to continue answering questions to the new people! You are all a great bunch...and some of you I absolutely LOVE reading your posts and threads...like this one. I am pretty good at reading the "voice" in a post (can you tell I'm a teacher/administrator yet?) and I hear the sarcasm often...and just smile!

other thing.....Peg...I really like my xyron X..the little one. I just got it this past Christmas and have used it often to put little letters on my layouts! just saying.... lol

I agree that it's hard to make that first post. I was so afraid the first time or two. I knew I'd say something stupid or something that was a no-no or just sound dumb. There are a few who are quick to take things wrong...and some who just have a bad day/week/...life. People are here from all over the world and all different backgrounds, all ages, genders (well, there aren't a lot of options there) and walks of life so it can get interesting at times But those differences are also what makes it fun and the way we can get different perspectives and ideas.

I always try to remember those first few posts I made and know that's how other newbies feel. The problem I'm having right now is knowing which newbie is for real. There have been several who turned out to be spammers and I don't want to encourage them! If anyone has sent me a friend request and you have 1 or 2 posts, I'll be more than happy to be friends after you've made some posts or comments or something to show you're "real". I hate being like this, but there have been some strange people around lately (and I'm not talking about the thread that recently got mopped since that was at least a real person).

Anyway, welcome and I hope you take part in our zaniness ~Judy

Oh...and I love my little X also. It's purple and doesn't take much space, although it does have a big appetite for tape I use it all the time (which may explain its appetite), but I also keep my adhesive eraser handy to erase around the edges when I'm done. I use a stylus to go around the edges to cut the "strings", but if there is adhesive involved...I'm good at making a mess~Judy

(My daughter's X is pink. Does anyone have any other colors? Once they made purple, why would they make another color )

Is the orange a grown-up X or a mini? The minis can't have their tape replaced, right? I know...I could look it up...Judy

the orange is a grown up and the minis can have their tape replaced. At least I'm assuming they can since the LSS had mini refills for sale next to the minis.

from the scrapbook.com product description and the results of my own tugging the parts of it...

The Xyron Mini Sticker Maker tool effortlessly turns flat items up to 1" wide into stickers using their non toxic, acid free permanent adhesive. The Xyron Mini Sticker Maker comes loaded with 10 feet of permanent adhesive. Designed to be disposable, there are no refills being produced for this tool.

Welcome Josie! So glad you gave us another chance!

I love my little Xyron - I think mine is pink - will dig it out later and look but I'm 99% sure its pink and I've refilled it. Didn't know there was a disposable one but that sounds like it could get expensive if you use it much.

I love the Slice with my Slice and use it for lots of small flat paper embellies.

I have the 5" creative station xyron too and its great. I use it for journaling that I do on velum. The xyron sticks better for velum adhesive without showing through.

I like my little "X" for ribbon too, although I rarely use ribbon, it's great when I do.

Ditto what Henri said. I also have the 2½ inch one, whatever model it is, and I hardly ever use it. It wasn't big enough for fancy flourishes, which is why I asked hubby for a 5" creative station for my birthday, but the 2½ was too big for most other things. Plus I have the creatopia which adheres, embosses, cuts, laminates up to 12", but I'm usually too lazy to get it out and use my cuttlebug instead.~Judy

Nope. Bought it that way.

I did NOT need another one. Orange one works great. But, my scraproom has zebra-striped accents and I couldn't pass it up.

I think it was a Xyron limited edition thing... animal prints.

I was wondering how you made so many posts today I never think about all the other forums. I can't keep up with the few I check into.

I loved my little purple X until I saw the zebra one. I'm so jealous...however, I'm an elephant lover and all I can figure for an ellie X would be to paint it gray. I guess I'll keep my purple one ...although those zebra ones are sure cute. Yeah, a purple zebra X would be the next best thing to a purple elephant ~Judy
