Are there specific things you look for? Do you have a preference to what types of siggies you like....scrappy, ones with most realistic elements.....Do you buy kits because of pics you already have then you find a kit to go with it?

um...
why? - Because ones you buy tend to have more and be of a better quality than freebies, plus there just aren't a lot of good freebies in the style I like
preference - on siggies? I love ones made in the same style I make, but I don't just like those. I love any that just make me stop and go wow.
buy - I buy it because I like it whether I have a picture that matches or not doesn't usually enter into it

I've bought more kits this month then I ever have(like 6 )
I prefer more scrappy stuff then realistic, I have some problems doing realistic scrap/siggy things but I'm trying to learn.

First thing I look for is something unique. Sometimes you look at kits and they start running together. Like flowers are similar, ribbons are the same or slightly different. So I look for elements that I either don't have or aren't common. I look for more realistic stuff but I like artistic license to realistic too if that makes sense. Like realistic but with a twist.

The third is can I use it with my kids pics, is it age approriate for them now and the next couple years, siggys are really last in priority for why I want it. I buy 1-2 a week now and it is usually because I like them not to match a pic. I cut everything out anyways so it isn't hard to make it work hehe.
