        I do! I think it helps makes the photo stand out more against a busy background. Also it’s another layer πŸ™‚

          I do mat my photos quite often. Especially if my photo looks like it is a little lost on the page!

                I do most of the time. I will rarely do without- there’s usually a reason. πŸ™‚

                  I love to use photo mats too, I do on most LO’s but occasionally I go without.

                    I do most of the time, and funny thing, I usually do it automatically. I like the way that it puts a bit of pop on the border, making the image stand out.

                    A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

                      I do nearly all the time, it makes the photo stand out more and draws your eye into the photo

                          I used to do it a lot and I got out of doing it. Now I’m back to doing it to add layers.

                          The thing I changed about matting my photos is what i used. When I first started scrapping, I only used cardstock to mat my photos. Now I use cardstock, patterned paper, ephemera, die cuts and flowers even get partially stuck under photos. Basically, whatever I can. It really makes a big difference. πŸ™‚

                            Kim, you are so right!!! I do believe that the layers add so much interest to the image!
