I know we all love scrapping/paper crafting, but what don't you love? What is your least favorite part of scrapping and/or making a card or page?

I hate how long it takes me to do a page, that's why I scraplift so often, then I don't have to do the planning.

I don't like doing titles. I usually use my Cricut and then make stickers with the Xyron. I feel like I have so much waste, so I tend to do my titles all at once.

Oh yes titles and journaling too! I hate my writing and really need to come to terms with it as I never get around to printing on the computer or using my cricut like I should!

Titles and journaling here as well - as much as I love my ciruct, anything I make with the cricut can fall into this category lol. Some days I'll seem to be doing fantastic on time for a page, then I get to the title and journaling and an hour later...
but I still love my bug

I'm a weirdo I guess. I love titles! I only have 2 cricut font carts, but i feel like there are endless ways to make the titles creative. I think it's actually one of my favorite thing about building a page since I got my cricut.

I'm with you guys on journaling though.

RJ- I scraplift for the same reason. I lift pages that really inspire me and I think they go so much faster no necessarily because I don't have to do the planning, but because I see something I want to create. It's much harder for me to create out of thin air than it is when I see someone else's beautiful page. (At least that's how I like to look at it, so I don't feel as bad about so many of my pages being lifts rather than origional works).

Sunny- I have the exact same prob with jounaling. I hate my handwriting, but I never get around to printing it... I don't know if this will work for you but it's really helped me... I set aside the pages that I need to fill in the journaling (cause if put them with finished pages I will blow it off completely). then once a month or so I do just a journaling day... First off a lot of the journaling is done on solid paper, so I can type up the journal for 3 or 4 pages and print it on one pieceof cardstock... less waste, less time and when you get it all cut out and put on the pages, you feel super accomplished to be able to put several pages at once from the "in the processs" pile to the complete one. (I was really really behind recently and did this just for the journaling that I wanted on white paper... I typed them all up and printed it out and was able to "finish" 9 pages in about 1 1/2 hours, talk about feeling accomplished.)
