Ok ladies, just wondering what's your preference?? And is it determined by your printer size?? would you like to see more options in kits for various LO sizes??

Hmm good question. I wanna have a go at creating in other sizes

...... I usually can make anything fit what I need, so I guess it never really matters. !2x12 is the easyest though. I do print at home though.

I like my digi kits 12 x 12". When I paper scrap or print digi pages I like to do them in 8 x 8, but I like the option of resizing the 12 x 12 pages if I want to print an 8 x 11 or other size

Good point Wendy. I dont want to use my home printer I am thinkin of using a commercial printer

I scrap at 8 * 8 so I can print them out at home. Getting them printed professionally printed is too expensive if I want to go 12 * 12

Oh is it? hmmmm i dont know i havent bothered to look yet

I always buy my kits 12 x 12 so that I can re-size if I want to. I usually create my LOs at 12 x 12 and resize to 8 x 8 for printing, but I do sometimes crop the papers to 8 x 8 before making the LO if I want the pattern the 'correct' size ( not sure that that makes sense, but I know what I mean!!)

I usually scrap eight by eight because I print all my layouts too at home! I love by eight by eight!!!

about printing, I get mine done for only $1.50 pg (that's for glossy paper. I could get glossy cardstock for $1.75 pg, but the albums I buy already have that in the pages so no need to double up...I'll save the quarter ; )). I don't think that's too bad compared to the cost of paper scrapping. I've considered getting a wide-format printer, but I've been so pleased with the commercial printing I don't think I'll bother. This is where I get all my stuff done:


of course that doesn't help you folk out of the US but it might be worth checking into.

I'm going to start offering some of my kits in other sizes such as 8x10 & 8x8. I noticed a few nights ago that 8x8 albums are becoming more easy to buy.

I think kits are best as 12X12 because they are easy to resize. And I print 8X8 at Walmart for $2.97 per page. Still cheaper than paper scrapping!

I'm trying to work up a theme so that I can get a hard bound book printed thru Walmart or one of the other online services. I generally just go where the mood takes me when I scrap, so this might take awhile!!
