Better may not be the right word. I firmly believe that there is not one way to scrap. All scrappers should make sure they create pages that reflect who they are. I can guarantee that CTMH products will help you make your pages quicker. Whether you use level 1 or 2 paper packs your pages are sure to look pulled together in no time at all.
I can tell you why you should become a card maker! Cost savings. Yes, there are some initial costs to get started but if you consider that most cards today cost at least $3 each and you probably send at least 20 birthday cards alone each year. Think of all the thank you cards, anniversary cards, and more you probably send as well. That can really add up. Plus there is nothing like a homemade card in this technical world.
