|Posted: 10/24/2013 4:15:30 PM|...and would you consider using it on a page, or are you just holding onto it for nostalgic reasons??
For me, it's the old Making Memories silver eyelets that look like actual screws - both Phillips head and regular! I hoarded these, knowing they'd be good for embellishing masculine pages with a bit of "sparkle" that's still kind of manly!
And yes, I'd use them on a page today...if only I could find my dang eyelet setter!

The oldest thing I have is probably a corner rounder from creative memories circa 1995ish? I dont use it anymore simply because I have a newer one that is easier to use, but i keep it for nostalgia

I have the rubberstamp that we used on our wedding invitation envelopes and I do still use it on the occasional anniversary page.
Also, I have some papers that are that old, and older. I started scrapbooking in 1987 and I still have supplies that old, mingled in with new stuff. It doesn't matter to me if something is "old." If it looks good on a particular page, it gets used.

I have pp and Mrs. Grossman's stickers that I bought in 1993. I would still use both on the right page.

@joelsgirl - i have that same corner rounder (and the new one too!) and I still use both. The older one is just a bit different curve - so it justifies me keeping them both!
I kinda love hearing about old product that takes me back to the "old days" when I first started scrapping! (Mrs. Grossman's totally does that - heck, I collected those stickers when I was in grade school!)

I just went through my paper and purged some MOD, Cherry Arte, Luxe, GinX and Chatterbox among others. How's that for a blast from the past?
Through that purge, I used a really old piece of Basic Grey Recess as a background on a page this week.
I still use the very first rubber stamp I bought in 1996. It was from PSX.

Mine is an All Night Media rubber stamp, wood mounted that is a cat hanging on to a balloon. Wish there was a date on the bottom but it has to be c. 1980 or something like that. I had the rainbow stamp pad and I put it on everything!!! I have it sitting on display in my craft room.

I have some of the "screw" brads....they're not eyelets, they are brads that look like screws. I think I have a few left but I did use some on a layout of my son helping DH build something....
I purge quite often and don't keep too much old stuff but I may have some Bazzill coloured cardstock that is pretty old!

Well, I've been scrapping only 10 years and I have several now defunct companies things; making memories is just one of them. Creative memories stuff is very prominent as I loved their letter stickers, their epoxy stuff is there too, but I hate it. I've got some scrap yard frames. Somethings are there because I really like them and haven't used them yet, but plan to one day. I don't necessarily think I have to use stuff up right away.

One of the oldest items in my stash was a raspberry colored scalloped diecut heart from Creative Memories I bought around 1998. Actually used it about a month ago = score!
|Posted: 10/25/2013 2:30:13 PM|
I still have everything that I purchased back in 2000. Some of it is dated from 1999. You bet I have used it, since most of what I bought in the beginning was paper. I don't think you can place a date on paper. There is so many I used on layouts and no one would have ever guessed. It's all about mixing the old with the new.

LOL at the Twistle. I bought some but never did figure out a good way to use it.
I think mine would be a K&Co kit I got from QVC about 10 years ago. The papers are pastel with floral prints. I used some of it and it no longer works with my style, but it's so pretty I just can't part with it. I'm determined to find a way to use them.

I had to think a bit. The oldest "tool" is the Coluzzle Dog Bone puzzle template. My late DH and I were gearing up to start scrapbooking, he was saving tickets and such and making sure we took pictures.
We were checking out scrapbooking stores to see what was there and figuring out our style. There was even a CM dealer at a craft show where we had a booth, I was showing him the little blades and templates and he was thinking it was something we'd get later. But he died at the end of that summer. Before he died, we were going to go back to the store I saw the Coluzzle dog bone at but they were out of stock and were every single time I checked.
After he died, I found it at a different store and grabbed it. Didn't have enough that time for the knife and mat but was afraid that I'd never find it again! It was a few weeks before I could afford to get the knife and mat. Still have it and WILL be using it soon when I work on a doggy album.
The oldest "paper" that I remember for sure is several sheets of glitter paper (but is NOTHING like the current glitter paper) and some baby girl foot and handprint paper that was left over, some snowflake vellum and paper with black paw prints. And yes, I WILL still be using all of them and cut a die from the glitter paper from time to time!

I am going to a retreat in a couple of weeks and have packed most of my supplies. I wanted to scrap so I challenged myself to use supplies I didn't pack and anything still on my desk. I made 4 layouts, one using imagination project paper, one using some ancient SEI, one using Lil Davis paper and the last using Chatterbox from the "rooms". Most if this was from 2004/2005. It was a fun challenge, there was only one of the four that I'm not 100% satisfied with.
|Posted: 10/25/2013 9:20:22 PM|
Mrs. Grossmans stickers, and CM diecuts for sure. That was as high-tech as it used to get. I add stickers to layouts every now and then, but I doubt if I'll use the die cuts. Time to purge? Those screw eyelets sound cute.
|Posted: 10/25/2013 9:37:14 PM|
I started scrapping in 1995 and I have the first CM patterned paper (the gingham...anyone remember?)and the colored alphas. I still occasionally use the alphas.
I have a ton of Mrs. Grossman's stickers.
I've been thinking about making a layout with all of these old supplies paired with some of my newest supplies. I think the journaling could tell about how the hobby has changed and how my style has changed, etc.
(I also have those screw brads! I bought them for a remodeling layout!)

Not the oldest like I said above but I just used Creative Imagination 2002 Hershey's kisses paper. I have no idea why I even bought it but I ended up using it with my Quickutz to make letters for a card. It was the perfect shade of brown and now you can't even tell they Hershey kisses.

Still have quite a few Mrs. Grossman stickers and I've used some recently in a gift sb: some of her little flower stickers to put in a window box on a piece of OA paper that had a house on it.
The oldest paper that I can think of is some of the "food" papers from HotOffthePress; still planning on using them when (if) I put together a recipe sb.
When I went thru my stickers recently, I found some old ProvoCraft tiny letter stickers, some Kangaroo & Joey flower stickers, some stickers from Not So Cute, and some Tumblebeast stickers that I still love - sort of vintage looking.
