Carol said...

WOW!! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. It's so difficult to just choose one but I would have to say that I luv the creative process the most. Lotsa luv xxxx

jan farnworth said...

i love coming up the idea. I take a look at a sketch and then start pulling out paper, ribbons, images it like a mad frenzy main reason i have to clean my table before i create the next project. but it fun and that why i continue to do it. thanks for the chance to win.

ursula Uphof said...

Gee whizz!!!. So much happening to take it all in. I guess just visit every day, every one and see what is HOT. Great news. Warm wishes, xxx

Renkata said...

wowow New artist I can't wait to see her work :)
Look like a lot of fun is going on, but that's the important thing to have fun and enjoy the crafting time.
What do I love most and just pick one ohhh not easy :) But I must say the colouring with my copics( the creative proces). I can't wait to come back from work, take a cupa coffee and enjoy some colouring. It's just such a relaxing time and fun, sometimes I forgot is almost time for bed :)

Cheryl O said...

First off, love all the new colors of Flower Soft I just bought that arrived...I can hardly wait to use them, and you're right, the gold and silver are so lovely! Your prices are the best!!!!

For my choice....I think it's the end result, seeing what I had in my head coming together for the final end creation. (Those last additions of Viva Decor dots always seem to do the trick!) hee hee

n2pne said...

I just love the creative process

theCook said...

I love thinking about my card, then making it, but what I love the most is when people tell me they like my finished card!

Deborah said...

The end product is what I like best about creating. As the creating begins, the end result seems far away but when the "puzzle pieces" start to fall in place, the feeling is great. It is amazing what can happen with a little bit of paper, stamps and embellishments!!!

butterflyamanda said...

i love the creative process as sometimes things don't always go as planned and it ends up even better!lol i'm so excited about this release.
hugs Amanda

Delia Cruz said...

Definitely the end result. When I start creating, I never know how my project will turn out. A layout can take me a week because it might just need that something extra.

Paula said...

What do I love about creating - the opoortunity to make something unique with character. Why? Because I can achieve something which expresses my own personality/individuality.

Susan said...

oh you make it so hard! I really love it all, but if I have to pick one...I would say it is the creating it. Hope I can make it til you reveal the new artist!! thanks for the chance at the candy

Amanda R said...

I would have to say it is the end results cause sometimes the creative process is a royal pain!

Mary Guikema said...

I love making cards and scrapbook pages to see the look on the recipients face. To me that look shows that they know they are truly loved.

Mary Guikema

Precious Memories Scrapbooking & More said...

i love the end result... the process getting there is not easy for me... it takes me to long to come up with something & then forever to pick coordinating papers... but I do love the END RESULT, so all the hard work is worth it to me! Thanks for the chance to win...
Staci

Anne Temple said...

I like the creative process the most. Coloring an image with my Copic markers is like therapy: calming and relaxing.

Denise said...

WOW!! What an exciting time for you Susana... AND for us!! Congrats on the new artist and all your success!! The thing I like most about the process is taking a blank piece of card stock and turning it into something wonderful. It's just amazing to me!! Thanks for all the fun coming our way!

KanataNewf said...

hmmm, that's a tough question. I think I would have to say that what I enjoy the most is the thank you from the person who receives whatever I make.

PJ said...

Looks like we are going to have some fun over the next week, can't wait!

My choice as far as your question(s) go is the "end result". After all the work in creating and using my imagination, it is the "end result" that really matters!

Looking forward to hearing from you real soon!

Kim Kelley said...

I think for me it is seeing the face of the person that receives the card or gift I made, that look that they know they are special to me with out saying a word.

Thanks for the chance to win a wonderful prize!

Scrappy Jackie said...

I love everything in the whole process. From buying products, looking at them and dreaming, playing with them... creatively, creating something beautiful, and then admiring the project when completed. What would be my favorite... probably just dreaming about how I can use something... but I love trying new things. THank you for the chance at a prize!

Glo said...

I like that, when I scrap, all the problems go away from my mind! :)

Lorraine said...

Wow, so many great things going on at SCACD! What I love most is the actual hands-on creating part of the process. I get fully involved (making a mess) and am in my own world. It really does help relieve stress from work & everyday life for me. Thank you for the chance to win!

KymKreates said...

I have to say the creative process is the best and most fun. I just let everything flow as I go!!

Kymkreates

Mona E said...

I think for me it is the creative process. I almost never have an idea of what my creation will look like when finished. I take what i have and try to put it together as beat i can. And most of the times i get satisfied with my endresult. But i looove the process of getting there. Hugs...Mona

scalder said...

Well, that is a hard question Susana! Although I like the creative process the BEST is seeing the end result! Doesn't matter if it's a card, a scrapbook page, a cross-stitch or a stepping stone---it's gazing on my FINISHED project that does it for me:) "I can't believe I MADE THIS!!" kinda thought:)
Thanks for the chance at some great prizes!!

Linda Carson said...

For me it's the satisfaction of the end result! Also the blessing of making someone's day special!

Good Kardma by Jules said...

I can hardly wait to see the new images! My favorite part of creating is the idea stage ... such a wealth of possibilities and I get to look through all my goodies trying to pull ideas together. Thanks for the chance to win!

Diamond Doll said...

Wow theres so much going on at SCACD,new artist, new stamps,Blog hops and yummy candy.
I enjoy the whole process of creating something but i just love to see the end result.
(hugs)
Trish (-:

AShu93 said...

I like the actual creating & the finished product, but I can never come up with ideas. The creating is just fun & it's great to have something tangible with a finished product I can show off.

Tanya R said...

The creative process is what I love the most. It is my form of meditation, and it leaves me feeling content.
Hugs
Tanya

ThePurplePlace said...

Congratulations on the NEWS! I am still very excited to see the new stamp "Reflections" for SCACD and can't wait to see the sneak peaks! :)

My favorite part of crafting is coloring and the reason I like it best, is because it's the one thing I can almost always do, even my my Fibro is flaring. I can sit back, put my feet up, relax and color! It's actually almost therapeutic for me and really helps me to keep my mind off of the pain! I LOVE it!!

I'm also very thankful to now have this wonderful hobby, I'd be lost without it. It's become my passion and is a whole new world for me. I've made new friends, learned all kinds of new techniques and ideas and found a brand new hobby that is perfect for me!

GOOD LUCK to all !

Hugs,
Lis

LoriM said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win!
I love the creative process, but I have to say I also love the face of the person that gets the end result too!
Thanks,
LoriM

Stacie (craft-princess) said...

I love the end result! Turning scraps/pieces into something pretty really makes me happy! Thanks so much for a chance to win!
-Stacie

SassyCricut said...

Thank you for such wonderful ideas and projects.. and
Thank you for an opportunity to win such FAB U LUS prizes...
I have to say that its the design process.. I mean I love coming up with an original idea.. and I love watching someone's face light up when I give them a unique handcrafted piece, but I'm in another world when I'm working in my craft room.. it's usually 2:00 or 3:00 AM and everyone has gone to bed.. the house is quite and I just totally focus on the process.. It relaxes me better than sleeping pills !!!

Lillie said...

Wow, for me what I love most about creating something is the creative process, because I'm able to experiment with all my supplies and change it if I want to. It's fun and challenging.

Our Little Inspirations said...

For me, it's the end result. I love seeing the look on the faces of those who receive what I create. That is the greatest reward of them all!

Diane said...

So exciting to be able to win this cool stuff!!! My favorite part of making a card is the creative process. Deciding on the papers and ribbons and all the other embellishments is so much FUN!!!!!!
And coloring with my Copics....so much FUN!!!!

*Michaela* said...

Oh, I love the faces of people when I give them the card or the reaction they have - it tickles my heart that you can make someone's day just by simply giving them a personalized card. I just love that I can provide that to my family & friends and sometimes even strangers :)

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

I love that feeling of accomplishment that I get when I finish a project. It's also a plus if the project comes out the same or even better than I pictured it in my head.

Yvonne Russell said...

Definitely the creative process as I love to experiment and see where it all takes me, depending on the papers, ribbons, embellishments and tools I have at hand. I enjoy the free flow part of this process.

Heidi said...

Thanks for the chance to win blog candy...can't wait to see new stamps... I love the creative process because I love to get my hands dirty. I love the touch and feel of making cards.

cardsbyheidi@gmail.com

Karen C in FL said...

I like the end result the best- I seem to struggle sometimes with the design, choosing colors, placement of embellishments.... I love when it all comes together and I have something that I created with my own two little hands, te-he!

Brenda Lee said...

I only make cards (don't scrapbook cuz I only have 2 cats...you can only take SO many pics of cats. LOL!!!). I love coming up with an idea but what I love most is that it's instant gratification....scrapbooking can take days or months!!! BWAHAHAHA Thanks for the opportunity to win some awesome candy.

Hanne said...

I love the process most. Just sitting there and make a card or a LO, picking papers, stamps, chosing colors and just be in it. I can sit for hours.

AUSTINSGRAMM said...

WOW! How neat..the suspense of a new creation and creator, and also winning a fabulous prize..
Think I have to say I love the end result: because I will see and admire my idea and had fun trying to create it. Guess I really love the whole process.
Thanks and hugs,
bobbi

angelique (anlou) said...

i go for the end result, when people tell me how they like it or not, that's posible to, LOL
thanks for this sweet chance
you're so generous sweetie
hugs angelique

Shazza said...

wow what a busy exciting time ahead. What I love most about creating is the end result, knowing you have made something that looks great!

jonim52 said...

Of course, I love it all. However, I think of love the creative process. I just love how my ideas evolve and change in the creative process. I am so thankful to have this wonderful hobby!

Vanja said...

Wow, congrats on the new release, can't wait to see the stamps!! Thanks for a chance to win too. I will try to answer, although it's kind of hard to decide... I think I will choose the result, because although I just love when I get a good idea for (a card usually in my case) and I always enjoy the process, I just absolutely love the moement when, after I've finished the card, I take a few steps back, look at the card, take a deep breath and just say Oooh! :) I love that!
Sure, my cards don't always look that pretty, but it happens and I enjoy that moment.

hugs, Vanja

Cathy F said...

Thanks for a chance to win. I hate to admit but the end product is what I like best. I usually pull my hair out during the design process but in the end it puts a smile on my face and hopefully the individual I send it to.

Tammy said...

Lots of fun stuff happenin'!!!! I would have to say that I love the end result the best. It's always nice to look at it and see that your hard work has paid off in something beautiful (sometimes just the opposite for me!) Thank you for the chance to win!!

Dawn said...

Definetly the end result, because I usually never end up where I thought I would and I love the joy, amazement and happiness on the face of the recipient. Sometimes I get that WOW I actually made that feeling.

Kristie said...

I can't wait to see the new artist reveal, how exciting!

I love the creative process of card making and scrapbooking. It's soothing, stress relieving and brings me great joy!

Luann said...

I love looking for inspiration and the how to process. My favorite is the end when you give it
away!

Pattie said...

Hi Susana - can't wait to see all the new releases! My favorite part of the process is actually doing it. I love to get out my Copics and bring an image to life! And I do love seeing the face of the person who opens the card or project. I love it when they truly appreciate all the love that goes into it!
Hugs,
Pattie

Sharon in Arizona said...

Hello everyone, WOW, what an opportunity and what a lot of information for my little brain to take in. I'm still so new to card making that the creative process is frustrating for me, but I do love the process of making my cards, but....I guess I have to say that the satisfaction I get with a completed project is the most fulfilling for me right now. Thanks to all of you for this fun blog that I am so looking forward to and the GREAT prizes. Hugs, Sharon :o)

Katie K said...

I love coming up with the idea the most. I have designed some 3D cards that people would say "how did you come up with the idea?" It made me feel really good.
Katie K

Judi said...

Oh, WOW! This is all just SO exciting!!

My favourite part of the creative process is seeing the finished item, and knowing that I created it all by myself, lol.

Can't wait to see the new release.

Hugs

Judi xx

Tracy said...

I love the creative process, doing the stamping, coloring, glittering, blinging, whatever it is for the project. So curious about the new artist. Thanks for the fun!
-Tracy

cdm317 said...

Hi,
For me, it's the creating process. I just love pulling out papers, stamps, copics, embellies. Digging through my stash of supplies really makes me happy!

Maria Matter said...

omgosh, so much going on here!

I love the whole creative process..choosing stamps and looking through papers...thinking about the person I'm creating for, and their style! too fun!

Excited to see the new artist...all the best!
hugs & blessings!

Stitchinwitch said...

I love it all :) If pushed I would say the actual creation is my favourite as I can see it come to life and it seems to take on a life of its own. That and I've always loved getting messy lol

Stampersue said...

It has to be the creative process - deciding what stamp to use which paper looks best - the whole colour scheme thing. I just love it

Uma said...

the creative process - loving all the ideas I get and trying them out

Tammi said...

My fav in creating is coloring and watching an image come alive little by little. Looking forward to seeing who the new artist is! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Mary Lou said...

Stunning News~~A New Artist and more releases~~YEAH!!!!!!!
I have to say that I Love the end result of creating something cuz I love to reflect and look at it and I also love the reaction of the person it is given to :))
Thanks a million
Blessings

SannaS said...

This is exciting...can't wait to see what's coming!!! =)
It is the creative process that gets me going...I love challenging myself and trying new things...It's all about the "journey". =)
Hugs, SannaS

dmbennett said...

Can't wait to see the releases.....
I would have to say that I love the end result. I like to step back and see what all I did and what it took to get there. Then seeing the reaction of the person I made it for..

Brandi said...

What a lot of exciting new in one post! :) I shift back in forth between the creative process and the end result. Sometimes when I don't have the creative urge I look back at some of my favorite things I have created and try to pick an element of the design to get fired back up again. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Lorraine said...

oh wow how exciting,For me it has to be the end result especially when a loved one really loves what you have made and appriciates the work you have put in.Thankyou for the chance of winning this great prize xx

Rufus said...

If I can only choose one, it would be the creative process. Can't wait to see the new stamps. Thanks for the chance at some yummy candy.

Sharron aka Sharrahug said...

Wowsers........a lot going on & I love the tiny sneakie peekie! LOL

Okay now.......what I love most about creating is.......the creative process cuz I just never really truly know where it's going to lead me. I can start with one idea & end up with something totally different as I move along on my journey to creating something that someone will love (hopefully).

Thanks for the chance to win.

Huggies ~
Sharron♥

Billie A said...

How exciting to have a new artist. Cant wait.
Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy, my answer to the question is making the card and seeing the person's face when they receive the card. I love having a person or sketch in mind and pulling from there. I can't wait to see the new stamps woohoo. love your site.

Amanda said...

I love to get all the ideas in my head and then finding all the parts and pieces, it is like a treasure hunt for me! Some times I get ideas and have no practical use for them at the time but, once I have them completed an occasion always comes up!

Mae said...

I really enjoy the creative process. I am mainly clueless on ideas and love to follow sketches or cards then add my own touches to them. :)

Darla said...

All 3 of course but since we have to pick one I'd say it's the end result. That sense of satisfaction of seeing the finished product and sitting back and admiring it.

Shirl said...

Hi, Usually I am a process person but I think my most favorite love with card making is the final result. I'm always so pleased when something comes together as I have planned for each individual. Most of mine are mailed to someone I may not see, but I love to think how special it will make them feel.

Anonymous said...

Suzanne, Thank you for this fantastic opportunity to win something. My favorite part of crafting is the creative process.

Susiestampr said...

The end results....my saying is:
"You are your own artist", so when I finish I look at it as "My Masterpiece" whether it be or not.

Michelle VP said...

Looking forward to "meeting" your new artist. :) I would have to say that I like the end result best. I love having the finished project and sharing it on-line and selecting who to gift it to in real life. :)

Sharman DeLuca said...

I think I really like the end result but I also like the creativity. I can't wait to see the new releases. Thank you for the chance of winning this prize...

...just Barbara said...

The coloring! Really, I love to color and that's the part I spend the most time on, puls it's usually the first thing I do right after picking out my colors. ;D

puffinliz said...

I love the challenge of coming up with a design for my project...this can be easy for me or it can take some contemplation, but it is always fun!

Mina said...

oh wow now thats what I call candy thanks for the chance to win...I would have to say its the creative process as Im rarely happy with my finished project (typical crafter lol)
Mina xxx

MissyG said...

I love the designing part, deciding what you going to do and what items of your crafty stash you're going to use. I also love to see the presons face when they receive your card.
Linda

jules said...

For me the end result! i love to see what i created not saying im always happy with it though! lol!
cant wait to see the new releases! and thank you for a chance to win!!

suzanne said...

the best part of cardmaking for me is giving! i give it my best shot and then love to see the reaction when its opened and appreciated.

Wendalyn said...

I can't wait to see the new stamps. How exciting.. My favorite is the end of the card making and seeing the results once it's all put together.

Judy Covey said...

What I love most about crafting is the actual process and then the ending result makes however long it takes to get the effect that I'm looking for all worthwhile. I have probably spent up to five hours on one card before, but if it turns out spectacular in my mind, than it's all worth it. Thanks for another opportunity to win some blog candy.

Tana said...

Good morning Susana! Well, since I have to choose just one, I'm going to go with the creative process. It is all fun for me but the creative process is probably the MOST fun! Thank you for the chance to win! Have a wonderfully crafty day!
Tana

Vera W. Yates (Ling) said...

I love the process and the end result of freating. The process itself is my way of relaxing & unwind from the day. The end result just makes me happy & I know I can brighten someone else day with it!

Bobbi said...

Can't wait to see the new images. My favorite is the creative process. I like coming up with the idea but I love getting that idea to take shape and actually making it happen from picking out the right paper, to writing the sentiment or title.

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

Thanks for this chance at some goodies. My answer is: all of it! I love creating and I also love when others love to get the things I make, and I love the end result (usually) I especially love making things that aren't expected, you know - that unusual card that just strikes your funny bone!

JoAnne said...

I can't wait to meet the new artist and see her art!

I think my favorite part is the act of creating. Always in paper, often in fabric and in watercolor. Seeing something take shape; the colors, special touches, adding drama or whimsy-I just love it!

Janice said...

Hmm a new artist-can't wait to see the release. I would have to say the final outcome is what I like the most. It's the feeling of accomplishment-especially if I can get the vision in my head to actually work! LOL

Purple Card Lady said...

Thank you for opp to win goodies. Hmmm...that is a tuffy. I would have to say coming up with an idea, because once an idea is in my head I am as excited as a pregnant woman finding a bathroom in the middle of no where. lol!!

-Agnes- said...

For me it's the result that amazes me most - "Did I really make that?" It's where everything comes together, the idea and the process.

Saints Rule! said...

I love the finished product. There is something about having a finished card to send to someone that just makes my heart soar. I love creating the card too but once I have that tangible result in front of me it really becomes reality for me.

Anonymous said...

Honestly I love the whole process! Coming up with the idea tends to be the most difficult, but the process and the end result is always the most rewarding. Stamping/Creating to me is very theraputic!!! I'm so addicted to it!
Roxanne

Alanna said...

Oooh, I can't wait to see the new designs and designer.

For me, I love the creative outlet that stamping allows me. I also love to see my finished products, well most of the times anyway.

Nancy Ball said...

I'm all about the "creative process" to a card. Thank you for this opportunity.

Peggie said...

I think it would have to be the process. I love watching everything come together even when it wasn't what I envisioned to begin with.

Janet said...

I love how creating takes my mind off of everything else...it's so free-ing!

Sue D said...

I like the creative process the most--it is surprising how you change things as you go.

Maryu said...

My first thought was "creating it." The happy hours just fly by when I'm engrossed in a project. But then when it's finished, I fall in love with the result. (Is it wrong to admire your own work that much?) So guess I have to choose "the result."

Cindy Lou said...

How exciting to have a new artist! More to add to that creative process we all love to get involved with. My favorite part of the process is the final result, the process may take minutes, days, and even a week or two, but rarely do my cards or objects ever end up like I planned, they always take on a life of their own, and I love to see what the final result is and how it is expressed in it's own terms. Thanks for a chance to win the candy!

BreAnn said...

I love coming up with an idea for the perfect little something for a certain person. My problem is that once I have it finished, I can't stand to hold on to it-I get so excited to see their reaction!

Trina said...

I think I love the end most. I like seeing that I actually made something! (I do not, however, enjoy the clean up...)

Sherrie said...

I love the process! Start to finish the creating is a release I need. Can't wait to see the new product.

Electra said...

I love how creating something makes anything not-so-good that's happened during the day all better.

Marion said...

For me it is the end result as the creative side can be harrowing sometimes. Looking forward to the new release.
Marion

angie babe said...

Hi, for me, its got to be the creative process! i just love creating! lol xx

Meg said...

That is a hard question to answer, but I love the creative process. I first think about how the card will be designed and then start pulling out papers, ribbons, embellishments, stamped images and start putting it all together. Sometimes I switch tracks and sometimes I am amazed at how it turns out. I love being creative like this in all areas - all crafts, cooking, etc.

mustavcoffee said...

WoW, I've been wading through the answers given to your question, there are so many, like minded crafters, out there.
Your question was extremely interesting and I thought I knew which was my favourite but I'm not so sure now.............
All things considered it has to be the finished product sitting on the window sill waiting to go to the recipient. They will know it was made especially for them and it's totally unique.
Very exciting having a new designer, Good luck with all you have planned and Thank you for sharing the goodies :0) xx

ConnieM50 said...

Wow - that's a hard one. I guess I like coming up with the idea. I like how it starts, ferments and changes as I think about. I just wish it would ferment a little quicker sometimes ! I am amazed how people on design teams come up with such wonderful ideas consistently.

Squirrel said...

It was so hard to answer your question! I get really excited when I come up with an idea. I love the whole process of putting something together. But I think the end result has to be the best part for me. If I don't finish a project I get so frustrated.

What a question to think about! I love getting ideas and seeing where they take me on my creative journey! Thanks for giving my little grey cell a workout!

Cammy said...

I'm sure these will be adorable images! Can't wait to see them! I think what I like the most is coloring (although I love coming up with the idea and the finished product) -- it makes me relaxed and feel like a kid again.

Tracey said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win these stamps

It is hard to choose but my first love would be the creative process - taking a range of papers, stamps, inks and other stash and turning it into something nice. I love 'playing' with my goodies and I like to see people's reaction when I give them something I have made

Thanks again

Tracey

For one answer I would say I am happiest with the result! It is only then that I have the opportunity to give my creation to someone. I experience great joy when the recipient opens my card and knows that I took the time to make it special for them! Many times even purchasing the stamp for their occasion as well. I know my daughter for one, loves the extra special attention.

pickle said...

Thanks for the chance to win the fabulous candy.

I would have to say the creative process is my favourite part. Sitting down and forgeting about all your troubles getting lost in paper and glue...heaven

Lexi said...

Creative process definately! And here's the reason why...
*the idea...i never know what i'm doing when i start
*creative process..i never know what i'm going to end up doing...but where it goes on the journey is always exciting and the most fun for me
*the result...is always good but i feel more for the end result knowing the twists and turns it took to get it there

weejuls said...

hello
i love the escapism, nothing else matters when i'm caught up in my craft room, for those hours spent in there its all worry free. the only thing to be concerned about is choosing papers, ribbons, embellishments, which certainly beats the doom and gloom of reality. bliss is when my card is finished and appreciated. x

inkypuddles said...

I would have to say my favorite would be the end result! It reflects what I have learned, what I am learning, and most of all, what I am able to do. It also makes me smile and often other people smile as well.

Thanks for the fun question and the opportunity to win cool stuffs!!

mississchic said...

I like the creating part. The parfalmost to the end where you can almost see the finish product. You get an adrenaline rush. It's great. Your are proud of your work. mississchic @ yahoo dotcom

Beth said...

Wow, what a fab opportunity :)
Its definitely the creative process for me, I just love spending hours surrounded by all my lovely crafty bits. An escape from the monotony of bills and cleaning and a chance to live in my sparkly carefree world.

Cathy said...

For me it has to be "the creative process." Some People practice yoga I go to my scraproom...LOL. I find it relieves all my stress and makes me feel relaxed.

Julie said...

My favourite part is when everything starts to come together, and you know that the end result is going to look like you imagined it to look.
Thanks for the chance to win.

lalkygirl said...

wow fab candy and i cant wait to see the new stamps,
for me the best thing is the choosing of all the colours/papers/elements ,i love how each time you choose a theme it ends up with a different feel depending on what mood your in ,so i think the answer is the process of creating the project.

annyvials said...

For me it's the end result, I can begin with bits of paper, stamps and embellishments that don't look like much at the beginning but the end result can be stunning. and then giving it to someone special is the best bit of all!!

Shelby Goolsby said...

For me the best part of creating is that it gives my "mommy brain" something fun and more challenging to think about. Oh, and the end result when my kids think mommy has created a masterpiece, that is the best.

Erika said...

I love the creative process especially when you start with an idea and go off at a total different angle....how does that happen?
I think it's the chance to switch off to everything else that is going on and enter your own world...."stroke that stash!" LOL

love2create said...

I find the idea phase frustrating because I have too many ideas , but once I commit to an idea I find the creative process the most fun because I can get `lost`in my creative zone.

Kelly G said...

I love the end result!

beadz said...

I really like all of the process, but I think while I am actually making something that's the best!
hugs,
Gini

cdjcape521 said...

Hi, can't wait for the new artist!
There is so much stress in the world today, enough to worry for a lifetime, but crafting takes me to another place. I lose myself completely!
Cheri

Jansie said...

What I love most about creating something is the 'click' moment...when I have just spent a half hour going through all my paper and embellishments and considering theme and stamps, ect. Then something clicks and I know what I'm going to create and that it will work (9 times out of 10). :) That's the fun part for me!

Anonymous said...

Wow just picking one is going to be tough but I have to say that the end result is the best. I like putting a smile on someone's face and also in their heart.
There are times that I will have struggled to make a certain concept work and when it is done and the smile is on it was all worth it.
I am new to this group. I can't wait to see the new artist and all the fun stuff you have planned.
God bless,

Pat said...

I think for me is the fun of thinking of something in my mind and then actually seeing it come to life in the project. Also I love to create different things with a particular person in mind/

Stacey said...

Thanks for the delicious candy giveaway! I would have to say that I absolutely love the creative process the most! I like coming up with the idea and I usually like the finished product, but the creative process itself is definitely what I love the most.

Virginia's Designs said...

For me the most enjoyable part of creating is definitely the end. To hold up what I have just made and I go "wow" , totally swells my own heart. I can only imagine what my recipient feels when they receive my creation!

Glennis said...

I love the end result. Thanks for the chance to win, it would really make my day!!

Janelle said...

I must admit that I scraplift many of my projects, but I adore trying new techniques and combinations to get different looks. I think the time spent creating is quite a bit more fun than admiring finished product. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

SueB said...

What a great question! Really hard to answer tho....I guess I would have to say the creative process...getting all the elements together and changing it around and coloring some more and all the stuff that goes in to getting the project exactly (or almost!) the way you wants it.
Many thanks for the chance to win! Can't wait for the hop.

Clickersister said...

I love the creative process; putting colors and textures together to see what I like best. Thanks for this opportunity!

Vana63 said...

its a tough choice picking my fav but iId have to pick the creative idea...I tend to see something I really like and think "I can make that" and away I go :-) Thanks for the chance to win!

Jennifer said...

Wow!!! :) That is a tough question! I love being able to give away the finished project (we donate cards to hospice patients), but as rewarding as that is, I think I like the act of crafting the best! I just find it so relaxing...

Vicki said...

I like admiring the final project, but I enjoy researching new products and techniques to try quite a bit more than the actual process of creating. I guess I enjoy imagining the possibilites a bit more than the actual crafting.
I can't wait to see the new stamps!

Maria Therese said...

Wow can't wait to see the gorgeous stamps!!
What I like about crafting..what's not to like.. it's the process, the result and not only that but the time for myself and the new friends I got through this awesome hobby :)

Eisbärin said...

Thanks for this great chance! I love everything about the creative process but I have so many ideas and can't always get them done, so my most favourite thing is actually having a finished project in my hands that I dreamed up!
Love, Alex

Debra said...

My favorite part would be giving my creation to someone else. I have never considered myself to be artistic but...when I give one of my cards, specially made for a certain person..I feel like I am sharing my artistic side! Thanks for letting me play!

MmSs said...

Firstly, I want to Say 'Thank you'for all of you.. for a chance to win this new stamp set.. for an amazing projects you create, the best products in SCACD and the whole inspiration you give to us.
Secondly.. is a difficult part... because it's really really difficult to choose only 1.. but most of all I Like the ending process.. when I hold my creation and saying 'yes! i really like it'

Jadie said...

I guess I will have to say I love the creative process. It is such good therapy to stamp an image and take my time coloring it, getting it just perfect! Once I am in the creative zone, hours just slip by and I lose all track of time. Even just sorting though my stamps, paper, and embellishments to find just the right thing is loads of fun. I cannot wait to see who the new artist at SCACD is!
Vicki

Mickie said...

I have always loved working with my hands and making things so I will have to say I love the creative process the best.

Elena said...

I like to start with an idea. I think this a time when you get all excited.
Sometimes the result can be so different from what you thought at the beginning, but it can be suprising at the same time!
Thank you so much for the fab blog candy!

Theresa said...

I think I like the creative process the best....very relaxing to put the card together and that is the more fun part too. Never know which direction I will go when I start creating.
Thanks for the chance to win.

deesdesigns said...

I really enjoy the creative process but even more I LOVE seening the reaction from the recipient of my creation!

kez250 said...

i really enjoy putting it all together and seeing my kids faces as they watch a blank piece of card slowly becoming something special

Cathy (mercieschild) said...

For me it is like giving birth to a baby, you have a slight idea of what it is going to look like and you know what you want but when you finally finished it doesn't always look like you thought it would but it is your baby (card) and you put your all into it and it is your s and yours alone and nobody can duplicate the love and time you put into it.
Hugs Cathy K.

Hollyk said...

I love the creative process but I think better then that is the expression on the persons face when you give them something that is hand made with love.

Marlena M. said...

I love coming up with the idea or trying a new idea I have discovered. I especially love when it comes out the way I had hoped, and it is good enough to give someone I intended it for!

Rosalee said...

For me the most exciting about creating something is the end result. Although I just love putting it all together there is nothing like seeing your creation for the first time once its done. Thank you so much for the chance. There's going to be some lucky scrappers out there.
Hugs, Rosalee

Stampin Mindy said...

Thank you so much for the chance to win. My favorite part of crafting is coloring, and then pulling out all my embellishments to really make the image image pop. I love trying to combine challenges too, the excitement of winning the top 3 or 5 on a blog is a great feeling. Thanks for the chance to win.

Hugs, Mindy

Judy C said...

It has just got to be the creative process, but without such quality and inspiring products available none of this would happen so I don't think any of us can take full credit for each creation. Such a lovely hobby, and thankyou for the chance to win. Hugs Judy C

LINDA W. said...

Hi...I have always been a crafty person making things with my hands
has always made me happy.Now that I
am retired my income in limited and
I have just found out stamping and I make my cards and my family loves
them and I save money and it is more personal than a bought one.It
brings back memories when I was a child and I love to color...lol
Thanks for a chance to win such
nice gift.
Linda

Mette said...

Hm .... this is a tough question but I think it would have to be the process from colouring the chosen image to finding the elements to make the card incl papers and embellishment. Although I love seeing peoples faces when they recieve a hand made card.
Can't wait for the reveal and thank you for a chance
Hugs, Mette

Michellena317 said...

Can't wait to see the new artist! My favorite part of creating something is how it makes me feel during the process...I go into a creative and relaxed zone where everything else just falls away...no worries no stress... just the task at hand of expressing myself.

Kris Turner said...

I love the creative process - the thought in my head is fun, but the end result is always a surprise (and usually better than the initial thought!).
Kris, Wadseworth, OH

Linda said...

I love the end result. I usually have no creative ideas when I start and just "throw" stuff out and usually end up with a nice card and no idea how it got there! :)

Nadia's World said...

WOW! What an awesome giveaway...

I would have to say the end result, as I have never considered myself as a creative person so when I complete the project I am always amazed that I did this.

Alison said...

What an awesome oppurtunity! Thank you! My favorite part is the creative process... how things change and morph as I go along. I often come up with things that are completely different from what I imagined, which is so cool!

HildeM said...

Thank you for giving me the chance to win.

For me its the creative process.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Hugs, Hilde ♥

Anonymous said...

I think I would say I like the end result the best because it also includes the idea and process that are necessary to reach it. What a great question.

Katarina said...

I think for me it's the shock when I see a stunning result, knowing I made it myself.

Angie Smith said...

I love to create a scrapbook page that tells a never-ending story. Mine usually require double and triple looks in order to absorb all that is detailed. It becomes memorizing to others and inspires them to share their stories in life.

BrennenB said...

Thanks for the chance to win.
I would have to say that I enjoy the idea the most. After that it's difficult to make the idea work and sometimes I have to scrap it altogether. But I love getting a new idea for a project and being able to make it work only makes it that much more exciting.

ChickAlizadeh said...

Thank you for who you are and all you do for us all...
for me.. the creative process...which sort of encapsulates the other two.. no??
hugs,
chick

Deb said...

I love the creative process, pulling it all together, using the first to come out with the last!
