    Default Premade scrapbook page on Ebay

    Did anyone else see the premade 2 page 12x12 scrapbook page on Ebay that sold for $760.00??? The artist is a forum member on Cricut.com and it is all the talk.

    I agree it is really beautiful work - the artist says she is in shock that it sold for so much!!! I don't think I could sell something that I worked so hard on and turned out so amazing! But then again..... $760

    Wow! It's really pretty and the detail is amazing!

    I find it kind of funny though that the word "anal" appears in a listing for something so sweet and cute!

    I saw that a few weeks ago. Her layouts always get a good amount of money for them, but I think that this one was her most expensive.

    I've been trying for over a week to copy it... it's got so much detail that it will take me forever... so at least she was paid well for her time.

    You should check out the pictures of her other finished auctions - they're just as pretty.

    It's cute, but not worth anything near that much.

    The wroth of art is very subjective, isn't it.

    I can't afford to spend much money for most things, but I do value art from skilled craftspersons. It's wonderful this lady got paid well. Good for her!

    That must have taken an insane amount of time to complete. And it was obviously worth that much money to the people bidding!

    I think it is a waste of money...and her work is nice but who wants to use someone else's work on their layouts... I want it to be mine.

    I agree with that. I thought the whole point of scrapbooking is to create it yourself! My pages may not be as spectacular, but it means so much more that I put in the time and did it.
    Although I guess that page will be pretty precious to the person who bought it $760 later!

    That is beautiful but I would never spend that kind of money on something like that. My dh is an artist and still doesn't understand why people pay a lot of money for art.
