  6. Resounding NAY to long car trips. It is not healthy to sit in one place for such a long time, even with short breaks.

  8. Joy - THANK YOU so much for this chart! It is SO HELPFUL! I tried my hand at one of the cards yesterday and had nothing but trouble! My new mat was too sticky and it messed up my paper as I took it off the mat, the 2nd time I cut it I had a snag in the cut...I finally just gave up! I will try again!
    I took a long car trip to South Carolina recently, and my grandkids live 13 hours away - so even though I don't LIKE them- it's kind of a necessary with the cost of air fare these days!
    Thanks again for the chart!

  10. Thanks so much for this chart and swing card samples...it will help me tremendously.

    No long car trips planned for this year but next year my sister and I are driving from Texas to Maine... an antique/junking trip that is planned to take 3 days but may be more like 5 or 6.... :o)

  13. So grateful for the charts! Thanks..Waited years for the kids to be grown so I could make long road trips only to find now I'm too old to sit in a car that long. Live & learn I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nay on the long road trip just haven't planned anything. Next year though yay on the long road trip. Thanks for the chance to win. Love all the wonderful tutoritals. Thanks for all you do. Terri

  15. Long car trips are the only way to travel these days. We made the trip from Ohio to Disney earlier this summer and plan on making at least two more trips down to Cumberland. All five of us in a car!

  16. Yay on the long road trips. I have been on many. You are fabulous for making a chart for us. I printed mine out. Thanks so much! You're the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks so much for the info.
    Mostly it depends on who or what is waiting for me at the end of that long road trip...

  20. Love long car trips - but my kids always got along, so that helps... We did 4 weeks in a Ford Van one year - Texas to North Dakota to Washington State to yellowstone and Utah back down around to Texas. It was a blast, and took a whole scrapbook to document!

  21. Long roadtrips can be fun if you are prepared and resourceful. Our family has had its share of Successes and Fails.

  22. Thank you for the all in one instruction sheet for the swing cards! I had the Artiste cartridge and did not realize it contained swing cards. So excited to have "more" options!!! Love checking out your facebook and blog! You always spark an idea for me!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Long car trips are always fun! Love the swing card. thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great info sheet! I don't mind a long road trip...sometimes we don't have the time and have to fly.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I find your recap very beneficial! Thank you so much for sharing your professional secrets!
    Depending on where I am headed, I usually find long car trips fun. Well, let me put it this way....

    On the way to my destination I enjoy long car rides/trips, but on the way home, I hate 'em. Like driving to and from Las Vegas.

    Thanks for letting me share.

  26. You are so kind to provide that really useful chart for the swing cards! Thank you for doing that. I love, love, love long road trips. I especially love driving through and/or stopping in little towns. But maybe that's only because I grew up in one!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It is a yay! Not because I like them but because they have to be long as that is where the relatives are. Planes - did those many years ago. I can not handle all the crap you have to go through at the airport. I am half way to my destination before I would even set foot on the plane that is how time consuming they are.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nay..in fact...no trip at all!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks for all the inspiration! Yay and Nay to long car trips--I don't mind them sometimes, but if the trip is more than about ten hours I prefer to fly.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Have a 16 month old so nay on the long car trips. She's not a fan of the car! :-(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Long car trips are always "nay" but you have to weigh the pros vs. cons especially when it comes to cost! Have a blast where ever you travel to!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for the charts. That will be very helpful.
    I prefer to drive if I have somewhere to go.
    We don't travel much but I prefer seeing as much as I can along the way.

  33. Nay! No road trips this summer. Just going to enjoy the grandkids at the lake before we leave for the south for the winter. I'd love to win the cartridge for cards. Thanks for the chance. I enjoy your great tutorial videos and ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love road trips, and long ones don't bother me as long as we can stop along the way. I've done DC to FL a couple of times and DC to New Orleans. But it definitely depends on who your traveling companions are!

    Thanks so much for the swing card tutorials. I was afraid to try them because they look so complicated, but now I'm going to go for it!

    ReplyDelete

  38. If we can help it, we try to avoid long car trips. My kids are great travelers, but let's just say I have a small bladder. ;) (TMI, sorry!)
    But...the price is right for a car trip vs. plane!
    Thanks for all the inspiration on your blog! <3

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would vote yeah!! I was told when I was in driver's ed I would be great on a long distance straight driving trip. I don't have the Artiste cartridge but it is on my wish list.

  40. We say "Yay" to short trips due to the heat of Florida, and that is what we have been doing so that we make a round trip in one day. Fun and very affordable!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yay to road trips. We just had to take a trip from Arizona to Minnesota. Now that is a long.... road trip but if you are prepared it can be such a good experience. Much more affordable as well. I am a subscriber to your blog and newsletter and love all your examples and videos. Thanks so much for everything.

  42. Thanks for the swing cards and all the tutorials you've provided this week. I've learned a lot and actually made some of my own. This is the kind of information I'm looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks for the cheat sheet! Looking forward to creating some swing cards soon.
    On the fence about long road trips. We are taking one in 2 1/2 weeks. The kids are teens now so it should be better than when they were toddlers.

  44. Nay to car trips but yah to all your card ideas! Thanks,

  45. We haven't been too far away from home for vacation since I was really young. At this point it's just car trips of 10 hours or less. Bless you for such a long trip in one day! I absolutely love this cartridge!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the swing card chart!!

  47. I'd love a long road trip. Hubby isn't able to drive for long, however. I'm enjoying your blog very much!

    ReplyDelete
  48. TFS all your swing cards and charts. We make short day trips since we have 4 cats at home and find it hard to stay away too long!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I used to love long car trips but the older I get, the less they like me! Thanks for the great chart!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Sometimes it's yay if the drive is full of new vistas or sights or if you get plenty of breaks, but when it's 16 hours straight, it's exhausting.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi it will be Nay for me this summer. Maybe the next summer I will be able to take a summer vacation. I hope you and the family have a great summer vacation. But if I win this great new cartridge then I could do some of the vacations
    from the past.




















    Have a great weekend :-)

  52. Thanks for the great tips on the Artiste Cartridge. It is a lot o f help knowing the cuts for the swing cards. Someone else did the work for me! My husband and I just get in the car and go sometimes not even having a destination. We have visited some interesting places just by driving around. And that's when we have our best conversations!

    ReplyDelete
  56. well, we've done long car trips to your state! we're in Nebraska and have driven to Galveston about 4 times, I think, and San Antonio once. It can be done, but sometimes the fighting amongst kids who are bored and tired of riding can be a bit much! Thanks for the chance at winning!

    ReplyDelete
  57. AWESOME CARD! Thanks for sharing. And thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Long car trips aren't so bad if you can stop & rest when you need to. I drive from IL to AZ every spring & every fall. Very nice trip! It is nice here in IL for the past 2 days. Now the humidity is back & temp going up. I would rather have dry AZ heat!
    Love your cards & can't wait to get the new cartridge!

  61. Nay! With an 8 month old and a toddler, long car trips take twice as long. Two weeks ago, a two hour drive took 5 hours with all the stops Ugh! Would love to win the cartridge. It's perfect for scrapping for my kids!

  74. Your cards have been fabulous, such a fun spin to create the swing cards. I will have to say "nay" to the long trips, they are just too hard for me with my back injury. This is very unfortunate since that means no trips. :(

    ReplyDelete
  75. I say nay because we have a small SUV and two little kids!

    ReplyDelete
