|Posted: 6/16/2013 5:40:08 PM|We often talk about certain supplies we have great big collections of, but what are you in the process of collecting right now?
I'm currently addicted to stamps that look like paint brush strokes. I bought the Papertrey Ink set, which I believe was one of the first of the current iteration of this trend, which is still my favorite. I also got three sets from the Hero Arts "Stamp Your Story" line, and I just picked up the brand spankin' new MFT set. So that's the collection I'm building right now. I've included some photos for your viewing pleasure:
What about you? What's the number one thing you're collecting right now? Is it washi? Enamel dots? Watercolors? Plain ol' pp (any certain kind? maps or grids or something?)?
|Posted: 6/16/2013 5:43:15 PM|
It was washi tape but I am trying to switch it to flair, which isn't really available locally.
|Posted: 6/16/2013 6:05:38 PM|mine is definatly enamel dots! I have about 4 more sets on their way to me and truth be told, I've only used probably about 5-10 dots out of them all
Now, that being said, I of course have a collection of Washi, but I am to the point that I am only trying to buy rolls or partials that I really can't live without.

There are some wood veneers I'd still like to get my hands on, but that collection is about done.
What I'm hunting now is Distress Ink pads. I went to my Memento pads yesterday and they were DRY! Frustrating. And most of the time not the colour I'm looking for. So I'm thinking I must buy the Distress pads to do some fun things with. Where to start, how much to pay, all of that though, I have no clue about.

I'd say the cut apart papers too. I don't do pl, but I love the look of those little something cards!

Punches! Even though I hardly ever use them because no matter what, it seems like they're never punching out the shape in the size I happen to need.
But still.... I'm drawn to them!

Washi and arrows.
|Posted: 6/16/2013 11:12:10 PM|
I finally jumped on the Washi tape wagon. My stash jumped from 2 to 12 rolls. (Yes, I know this is tiny compared to most collections.) I can see many more rolls in the near future. Now I just need to use them!

Mine is just embellishments in general. I've got tons of paper in my stash but never feel I have enough embellies so I'm constantly collecting them for my stash!

Just started playing with Distress Inks too (only have 4) and they look to become the next collection. I'm in South Africa, so no help with prices, aerynkelly. I have started with 2 blues a green, and Walnut Stain to try blending the different colours.
I am also slowly building my Copic collection. Got a pleasant surprise this morning at hubby's office. He is an architect and they have a HUGE collection of them there! Heehee, guess whose supplies I'm going to be 'borrowing'! I need to visit him there more often. Who knows what other hidden treasures he has hidden.

|Posted: 6/17/2013 6:00:18 AM|buttons and washi right now, but I can always find a reason to buy a pretty paper
|Posted: 6/17/2013 7:08:50 AM|
I have recently been obsessed with collecting American Crafts glitter tapes/ribbons. It's just so pretty!
I've got a huge printed paper collection already, but lately I've felt that I needed to stock up on some newer prints and I've gone a little overboard stocking up on Studio Calico prints...mostly the neutrals. I think I have satisified my desire on the paper for now & need to step away.

Right now it seems to be Greeting Farm Stamps. My collection went fun 0 to about 20 in the last 3 weeks. Also the Sugar Chic/Serendipity lines from Heidi Swapp. I picked up almost all of it plus the memory file album this weekend.

Cut apart papers-- namely BH, Echo Park, and Simple Stories. I started the year dedicated to using a half of a collection of Seafoam that I split with a friend... and then the new collections came out... and now that I am incorporating other colors into the album, I am back to coveting lots of other collections. In hindsight, it was crazy to think that I could confine myself to only one color palate.

Slacking off on the washi, but now it's the flair.
I really like wood veneers, but (other than the Prima sets) haven't found enough variety.

Die cut packs (getting so addicted to buying these, especially love when I don't know the images in the package so it's like a surprise of little bits.

Having upgraded from a Quickutz Squeeze to Sizzix Big Kick about a year ago, I've bought numerous QK/Lifestyle Crafts alphas, borders, & larger image dies plus various manufacturers' embossing folders. My previously modest stash of two alphas & a handful of versatile 2x2 image dies has exploded into a full-fledged collection. Now I use at least one die, although usually an alpha, on every layout!

So now I am collecting different colors of nail polish to "finish" them with. It is fun, fun, fun!

Right now I'm working on making premie blankets for a couple collecting them for the hospital, so I haven't scrapped in a couple of months. The blankets are to be turned in this week, so I'll be scrapping by the weekend. So I guess my answer is right now I'm collecting scrap supplies (or dust on the supplies) ------but on the up side, I've made 21 blankets!

I have quite the collections of wood veneer, washi, and flair.
I am a sucker for any stamps with clever sayings. That never seems to change.
I am a sucker for anything music related paper or embellies. I got some super cute washi tape that is black with a random jumble of white music notes instead of the usual notes on the lines. Good thing my DD is continuing orchestra into college.
I have just discovered the Hero Arts ink pads and only have a half dozen in my collection.

I think embellishments in general for me. I don't have a very big stash, and lately I've been getting a variety of stickers/die cuts/wood veneer. Especially the embellishments from the different Dear Lizzy lines!!
