Let me get really basic in my Tuesday Tutorial today. As my external hard drive (on which I keep all of my digiscrap supplies) has been acting up recently and I haven’t been able to access my stuff without the hassle of first having to copy what I want to use from the hd to another device before I can use it on my computer, I came to realize one thing: There are some things I can live without ready access (i.e. kits because I’ll use them once initially, and then later maybe again), and there are some digiscrap supplies that I just can’t live (and scrap) without. They are filed in my folder named “embellishments”, and include a range of different products. And while I use some of these element packs rather rarely, there are those, which I check out almost every single time I create a page (that’s not for CT purposes) to see what I can use on my layout.
Here’s a list of what I found to be indispensable additions to my scrap stash:
- brushes (paint splats, photo masks)
- photo pockets
- templates (for shapes, etc.)
- handwriting fonts
And while I have a lot more than that in my embellies folder (date bits, doodles, frames, paper packs, word art, to mention just a few), it is the alphas and stitches that I use more than anything else, because I find they add variety and dimension to my pages.
Maybe you could share what are the essentials in your scrap stash? (Simply leave a comment and share your thoughts.)
