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.
