Questionnaire winner and compiled findings of small survey

 

Hi All, for those who are interested in the results of my little survey into your favourite, and go to items for card making.  Here are the results.  It was a fairly small sample but the results were really interesting and I thank everyone for taking some time to send their answers to the 10 questions.

I acknowledge that some people requested not to be included in the draw.

 

Q. 1 With the exception of Cardstock and Designer paper what are your 5 favourite card making products?

Top 5 answers in order of preference were: Stamps, Dies, Ink pads, Scoring board, and good quality Scissors.

Q.2 Do you prefer to make one layer cards or many layers?

Top answer was: Matting and lots of layers although for posting, one layer cards were preferred.

Q.3 How important are stamps and stamping to your card making?

Answer: They were a high priority for everyone –

Q. 4 and 5  Are Dies and die cutting a major feature of your cards?

Everyone agreed that they were a high priority for their cards. Die cutting machines used were:

Scan n Cut, Silhouette, Big Shot, Big Kick and Ebosser

Q.6 Favourite Embellishments?

There were quite a lot of these, but the top two were: Pearls/gems and ribbon.

Others were: grommets, brads, Ephemera, buttons, lace, twine, sequins, and tiny dots.

Q7. Glue or Double sided tape?

Most  used double sided tape,  but other favourites were wet glue, glue dots and tape runners.

Q.8  Do you Fussy Cut?

‘Yes’ was the most popular answer, though some people said they don’t like to fussy cut  if they can avoid it.

Q.9 Most popular Card Size? AND  Do you make your own envelopes?

A6 was the most popular size but most suggested they chose other sizes  such as various squares from 6″ x 6″ to 8″ x 8″, DL and 7″ x 5.  Many have an Envelope Punch board which makes up to 66 envelope sizes.  Some purchase pre-scored card and envelope packs.

Q.10 Which Ink Pads do you prefer?  (I realised this was a loaded question as there are so many to choose from), permanent, dye, archival etc etc.  This is a selection of the answers.

Distress Inks (most popular in this small survey), Rare Earth Inks, Stazon, Stampin’ UP!,  Versa magic, Memento, Embossing inks, Brilliance Inks for metallics and Versafine.

I found all this information really interesting, I hope you did too.  And now to the draw, which I conducted with Mr B this morning.

DRUM ROOOOOOOOLL  !

  1. Thank you, yes the results were really interesting I thought. Great idea to add your list of materials in your posts, often people have no idea how to get started with card making and other paper crafts and these sorts of posts help a lot. Barb

  2. That’s really interesting Barb. A few surprises. Glue being favorite and the A6 size of card. We have had long talks in our house about stamps. Now, I love, love, love them as you know but I have often wondered over the last couple of years whether or not they are as popular these days with all of the new and different products available on the market and digi images for card making etc., So Q.3 is the one that stood out for me.
    Have a great week.

    1. It was very interesting Florence. As you know I too love my stamps and having just had a stint of 6 months or so trying to create without them, has proven to me that they really are very important for card makers. Co-ordinating products are also really helpful and again trying to work around that has been quite difficult too. There is a lot to be said for companies like Stampin’ UP! who have worked hard at coordination in their product line. I do thank you again for taking part in my questionnaire having blogging friends like you is such a joy.
