I just want to see what the majority background is :D

I have WAY too much paper supplies to go 100% digital (although I get more done digitally.)
08-07-2006, 04:01 PM
I have the paper supplies, I've just never used them! Digital all the way for me!
08-07-2006, 04:04 PM
I'm a half-n-halfer! I started out paper years ago and just started digital just last year. Nowadays I get about as many digital layouts done as I do paper.
08-07-2006, 04:08 PM
I voted paper gone 100% digital...but I DO have plans one day to print out my digi supplies to use as paper supplies. I am even collecting things to alter, lol...I have a box full of stuff...and it's a BIG box! LOL!
08-07-2006, 04:10 PM
I started out using paper. But, since I've gone digital, I am thinking of selling my paper supplies. I can't even stand the thought of all the mess, the dragging out and putting up. Not to mention the fear of using the pretty paper because I am afraid of making a mistake.
Never scrapped a day in my life before digital. Thought about it on several occasions but then would envision the mess and that would be that.

Just "discovered" digi SBing with the now infamous March (?) issue of CK mag where they gave a mini tutorial on how to make a digi LO...and I actually sat down and did it...and LOVED it! Am using all of my paper supplies to finance my digi habit (on eBay). I am love-love-loving digital SBing and can't ever imagine making another paper page...ever :)

I mainly use my paper supplies to make mini albums as gifts (with printed out digital layouts inside rofl).... and they're great for mixing with digital printed elements to make cards and so on.... If it wasn't for that though, I'd be digi all the way and back again. Love it too much!

Will never touch paper again for a scrapbook page!!! I have a ton of supplies, but I'll use them for altered things or let the kids use them. Digital is just WAY too convenient, easy, & mess-free!! :)
08-07-2006, 05:28 PM
I had to answer "Paper scrapper gone 100% digital" because I haven't done any paper scrapping in over 3 years now.
I just still buy the paper scrapping tools:confused:
08-07-2006, 05:35 PM
Never did paper before digi!! Thank goodness....I'd be either stuck with a lot of stuff now or selling it on EBAY!!
08-07-2006, 05:54 PM
I voted for never scrapped a day in my life before digital.
I did buy $100 of CM stuff and tried twice to scrap a page at 2 different crops, but never finished either page LOL!
All digi here, I was a trainwreck when it came to paperscrapping:D
I do still love to look at and sometimes buy non-digi paper........but use it for other stuff.
08-07-2006, 06:29 PM
I keep planning to use up the paper supplies - too much invested; too impatient and short of time to list them on Ebay - I just keep weeding things out and giving them away!
I eventually intend to turn my scrap closet back into a clothes closet for my work clothes! (My primary fantasy about building our house was having a scraproom with a great big closet! LOL)
08-07-2006, 07:07 PM
Well...I say that I still scrap with paper, but once in the last six months is about it! :p
08-07-2006, 07:15 PM
I voted option 2 even though I have only ever scrapped 3 traditional pages before digi and 1 since. hahaha
08-07-2006, 07:21 PM
I do both! I have waaayyyy too many paper tools and supplies left from being a CM consultant to not paper scrap. And every once in a while I get the urge to get my hands (and my table, and my kitchen) messy and dirty, and just scrap the ole' fashion way!
08-07-2006, 07:29 PM
I'd seen paper scrapping, and while it looked great, I also noticed all the space needed. As my house is incredibly cluttered already, I didn't feel I could add to it. I was thrilled to discover digital scrapbooking! I loved the idea, I already did computer graphics for signature tags and email stationary (for Incredimail), so I had the techniques down. It was just a switch to a bigger graphic and using family pictures!
Never scrapped a day in my life before digital.
08-07-2006, 10:33 PM
I've started paper scrapping in january '06 and ended in march '06 when I discovered digital scrapping! But I miss the paper sometimes. I think I'm going to do a little paper scrapping... as soon as my stuff arrives at my new home, that is to say only in october!! LOL
08-07-2006, 10:39 PM
Always digital for me. I'm like Laurie - I went to a CM party, bought some stuff (out of guilt) then put it on a shelf when it arrived and haven't touched it since.
Being a gadget girl though, I do like some of their tools.
08-07-2006, 10:54 PM
Scrap paper! Go digital. That's my newest phrase. LOL
I wouldn't go back unless someone offered me maid service and money~ LOL
08-07-2006, 11:01 PM
I just want to see what the majority background is :D
You didn't have my option so I didn't vote! LOL!! I did exactly one book of paper scrapping - our honeymoon trip and then promptly stopped because I realized paper and scissors just wasn't my forté.
When I found digital - I thought I would never look back. I did do a few layouts for the Hall of Fame this year, but I realized again that I was much better with the computer tool than the others - and scrapping with a 3 year old is much cleaner and safer digital.
08-07-2006, 11:12 PM
Former paper scrapper gone 100% digital although I do have some paper pages that need to be finished and I have to decide what I am going to do about my 1st son's 1st year book - I have pages that need to be done but everything else is digital.
08-07-2006, 11:12 PM
I scrapped about 10 pages with paper over the last five years or so - I hated cutting my pictures and I could never decide what I wanted to do. I threw up my hands in frustration and said, "I'll come back to this when I can do it on my computer!"
And, now I can, so I did. :lol:
08-08-2006, 12:08 AM
But, although as of right now I am 100% digital...I may have to go back and paper scrap a few pages in order to finish some books that are in progress...
not to mention the storage room in our entry is jam-packed with all of my scrapbooking and stamping supplies...yikes...
08-08-2006, 05:10 AM
I'm both paper & digi.
08-08-2006, 05:55 AM
I did paper scrapping for years and I have loads of albums. I took a while for me to like the "look" of digiscrapping. Now that I've started, I'll never paper scrap again. I can't stand the mess, LOL!
I have a ton of supplies though and I just weeded through them over the weekend. I have a huge box of stuff to give away (too lazy to take the time to eBay). The rest I'm saving to use for party invitations (I make my own) and to let the girls use for crafting.
08-08-2006, 06:24 AM
I'm never going back!!! (to paper that is)
08-08-2006, 08:05 AM
I never paper scrapped although I bought a bunch of supplies.
08-08-2006, 11:21 AM
Never scrapped a day in my life before digital. :D
08-08-2006, 11:40 AM
While I say I never paper scrapped a day in my life before digital, that's not completely true. :rolleyes: I TRIED paper scrapping when my son was born and gave up after one page...I just didn't have it in me. I vowed I would go back to it one day but many years later I found digital and LOVE it. :) Now I have to go back and scan in his baby pics and do them digi.
08-08-2006, 11:42 AM
I started out paper scrapping but when I realized the inevitable side hobby of "collecting paper scrapping supplies" I stopped cold turkey! I knew I could never afford it in terms of money or space. After about six months of just trying to get my photos organized I looked into digital and have never gone back to the paper!!
I still have everything and occasionally still buy a small thing or two at Target if it is clearanced - heck, if I know why! Mostly my daughter will go through my paper stuff and make her own scrapbooks with it. She doesn't have the patience to do the digital. Wants to cut, paste and boom. Be done!
I will always be a digital girl!!! :)
08-09-2006, 06:19 AM
You guys are awesome! Thanks for taking my poll!
08-09-2006, 06:28 AM
I actually boxed up over 1400 sheets of cardstock last night to contribute to our church's school. Today I'll try to box up all the printed paper and elements I have in our office. I can't wait to see what the place looks like with all that stuff outta here! Marci
08-09-2006, 06:28 AM
I started out with paper about six years ago and am almost 100% digi now but I do still occasionally dabble in some paper ;)
08-09-2006, 11:22 AM
I am about to donate a big box of scrapbook supplies to my sons preschool class for art supplies. I have gone 100% digital. I had accomplished just one scrapbook in all the years I paper scrapped and frankly its kind of bad looking although I still like it. I just LOVE what I can do in PSE though! Love it.
08-09-2006, 05:20 PM
I did paper scrapping for years and I have loads of albums.
Charlene, I didn't know that! :cool:
08-09-2006, 05:27 PM
I voted the never scrapped paper, BUT technically I scrapped a total of ONE page -- that's it -- I just did not enjoy it and am thrilled that I found digi a few month's later. So I figured my answer was better than than "used to be a paper scrapper" ;).
08-09-2006, 05:36 PM
I paper scrapped for one day in my life years ago because I fell in love with Anna Griffin papers and like someone earlier in the thread (sorry, I forget who) I got frustrated and gave it all up until I could do it digitally.
Basic Grey still tempts me to try paper again, but I don't think I could stand it. Thankfully, I have no LSS so there's no temptation!
08-09-2006, 05:40 PM
Now I kinda just wish I could get up the will power to sell all of my paper scrapping an stamping supplies on ebay. I need to pay for my addictions.
