  1. what a fucking waste of paper and plastic, just stick the fucking thing in an album and call it a day! no one fucking cares if you decorate the pages, i dont want to have to lift up a piece of half opaque card to see whats clearly under it!, what a waste of time… money… brain cells… and materials!

  2. Scrapbooking is more about being crafty than anything else. Its actually fun to do. I've done it once before with photos from my graduation, but to each their own. Some call it a "waste" others call it fun! 🙂 I'm really tired of people complaining about the videos Howcast does. Not ever single video they make is going to apply to everyone so stop complaining! When they make something you don't think is useful to you, just don't watch it. Its not that hard.

  3. @cuzwereacool2 dude…this is obviously a how-to video for scrapbookers…since you obviously don't seem to dislike scrapbooking don;t click on a video that clearly states "how to use vellum with scrapbooking"

  4. @cuzwereacool2 personally, the only scrapbooking ive ever done is for school… but frankly, why would you buy vellum anyway if you didnt want to use it for a craft project, its kind of like, you might think its being wasteful, but to others its the best way to use a certain material.

  5. @LuckyNote64 no im talking about the waste of materials, for something so materialistic and wastefull!, SAVE THE FUCKING WORLD jeebus

  6. These aren't "steps". They are ideas. A step is a progression of the same thing. Like in a recipe, or directions.
