Hey there! I'm looking to start scrapbooking. I've always wanted to try, and my daughter is great motivation. Not to mention I have TONS of pictures already and she just turned 3 months old.
The question I have is this:
Are the starter kits a good way to get started or should I buy pieces individually?
I've checked out the tutorials and things. I'm really artsie, and this seems to be a good way to put my artsie side to work. Thanks in advanced!
I LOVE kits quite personally. They give you everything you need at your fingertips. I really have no creativity whatsoever so I have to get my ideas from what I see...so those kits truly help!
I started with a kit and it helped me. However, as time has gone on and I am more experienced, I buy things separately because I know exactly what I need. I like the kits because you get more for your money in the beginning when you aren't sure what embellishments you like etc.
Welcome and I hope you become as addicted as we all are!
I don't tend to use the kits ... I have a kit a friend gave me as a gift over a year ago and I have yet to use it. It's so cute too, I hate that I haven't used it. Maybe because I didn't pick it out so it's not focused to what I tend to scrapbook. Anyhow, it sounds like it's a good way to start, just to get the hang of coordinating everything then you can add on from there.
