I flip and rotate papers quite often ... don't recolor papers or elements much ... love to mix kits (just don't do it very often) ... never thought about making my own elements and/or paper - wouldn't have a clue how to do so! ... I don't make my own photo treatments, but I do use multiple ones a lot of the time ... do not use warp function to change shadows (I use Corel PSP X4 --- maybe that is why?) ... and I do make my own masks - but, most often I use purchased ones.

Great questions ... what are YOUR answers Sara?

Flip/rotate papers? Quite often
Recolor an element/paper? I do this fairly often.
Mix kits? Pretty regularly. I didn't do this when I first started digiscrapping. I was a one-kit girl initially.
Make your own elements/papers/etc? Fairly often. If I have an idea and I can't find exactly what I need to match the kit(s) I'm working with ... I'll just make it myself. I recently made a little bird for a layout using papers from the main kit I was using.
Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? All the time ... I'd say daily!
Use the warp function to change shadow layers? Nearly every layout.
Make your own masks? Pretty often.

How often do you...
Flip/rotate papers? Often, and I often shrink pattern papers, so the pattern is smaller.
Recolor an element/paper? I recolor more, if I mix kits.
Mix kits? frequently
Make your own elements/papers/etc? Not much anymore. I'd rather use a kit already done, although...I'm capable.
Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? Almost always. I don't really have photo changing actions.
Use the warp function to change shadow layers? sometimes.
Make your own masks? Often, or i fiddle and adjust one I have to make it work for me.

now for an unsolicited opinion...LOL...IF a kit has flowers, I think it should have greenery. And all kits need stitching...just 'cuz' <grin>

@Jill, I had my answers and then my computer pooped out on me before I posted them. Stupid laptop! It was late so I figured I'd wait until the morning to post. So here are my answers. :)
Flip/rotate papers? Often.
Recolor an element/paper? I recolor elements frequently. I love being able to change a paper/ellie to perfectly match the LO (esp if I'm mixing kits and the colors aren't exactly the same...which is often lol)
Mix kits? Not often on my CT LOs, but frequently on my personal LOs. Thankfully I joined a few CTs for designers who are friends IRL and they let us mix their kits. SO NICE!
Make your own elements/papers/etc? I used to use my own papers cuz it was tough to find kits with good textures. Thankfully that's easier now. :) But I still add my own ellies/papers every once in awhile.
Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? I prefer adjusting each pic individually, so I usually do it on my own. I do use some of my own actions sometimes, though, because I can adjust each layer. Some actions don't let you do that (I think so other designers can't "see" how they made the action?)
Use the warp function to change shadow layers? Almost on every LO.
Make your own masks? Frequently. I also use the ones included in a kit. I like to use masks for both pics and for papers.

Flip/rotate papers? I rarely rotate papers.
Recolor an element/paper? I recolour papers alot but not so much elements

Flip/rotate papers? all the time
Recolor an element/paper? sometimes - especially ribbons and almost always in mini kits
Mix kits? all the time for non-CT pages which I normally don't post in galleries, rarely ever for CT pages
Make your own elements/papers/etc? even though I can, I don't like to take the time. I'll recolor a paper in a kit I'm using before making my own from scratch.
Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? I don't use actions, but I've made some of my own scripts I use (I use PSP). So, I guess those are my own even though they're actiony :)
Use the warp function to change shadow layers? I used to play with this tool a lot, but it doesn't always add much for me. So, I rarely use it now.
Make your own masks? I've never done this. I love masks, but never made my own.

Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? I like experimenting!

Flip/rotate papers? Quite often (especially to get the stripes to go the way I want)

Recolor an element/paper? Rarely

Mix kits? Often with personal pages, rarely w/ CT pages

Make your own elements/papers/etc? Nope, except to extract some memorabilia or to add a texture to paper

Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? umm... not really anymore since I got RadLab.

Use the warp function to change shadow layers? Seems to be hard in PSE, so not much

Flip/rotate papers? Almost always
Recolor an element/paper? Usually only alphas
Mix kits? Almost always in challenge layouts/personal layouts...almost never in CT layouts
Make your own elements/papers/etc? Yes, in designing I use very little CU and draw/make nearly everything in my kits, but in just scrapbooking I take the lazy route like Rachel and only use what's there
Make your own photo treatments (instead of just clicking on an action to change your pics)? Frequently
Use the warp function to change shadow layers? all the time, I use smudge too
Make your own masks? Would love too, played at it, but not good at it
