Scratcher

I may have coined a new term here. A new term for me that is.

One of my favourite hobbies is making my own cards from scratch. I use scrapbooking materials, but I also like to use other things as well, hence the scratch term. Now, in most circles, and Sue is the most knowledgeable about this, the term Scrapbooking is used, and the people who practice it are known as Scrapbookers or Scrappers. These folks also work their creative magic and turn precious mementos into scrapbooks.

I don't enjoy doing this as much as making cards.

So, I guess that makes me either a Scrapcarder or a Scratcher.

....but feel free to coin a proper term for what I do....

Well, do you use stamps to make the cards? I think you'd be a stamper then.

Mau - I think the term scratcher is fine, but the Quebec language police actually came out with a French term - a new made up word just for Scrapbooking and Cardmaking - and it's official too - they sent us a whole book of Scrapbooking terms translated into French - too funny.
So what is Scrappbooking in French you ask? - Collimage. You are a Collimagiteuse. Hum, scratcher is just fine.....
