...from a couple of years ago? I've been going through my stamps and realize that out of all the stamps I purchased, there are only a few that I use on a regular basis. They are cute, they are little, but what am I to do with them??? Does anyone use theirs on a consistent basis?

I use mine for card-making. However, I've found myself using them more & more for Project Life.

OK, I have to say... WHAT??? They aren't popular any more??

I STILL buy them at Walmart, and just bought 2 new tiny sets after Christmas for 49 cents! But I'm not exactly a trendsetter!

You could use them on cards, to make little embellishments, or stamp in the corner of a journaling card/spot.

I sold most of mines along time ago and just kept the ones i know i will use. ( Christmas ones for tags, Valentines for little goody bags etc. )

I can see them working well for PL! They do have really cute images!

I use mine all the time to make journal cards and also in PL. there were a couple I ended up never using so I gave them to the kids to play with. Seems like a lot of them were sentiments for cards.

I still use mine but i never bought too many of them. I did not need to buy "sets", just the ones I liked.
Some of the ones with phrases have come in handy
And since they are only $1 ea I have had no fear cutting them apart to fit my needs.

I didn't buy many sets - except the first set but have purged most of them - sold them in a big grab box. Still have about 20 - the months of the years ones are the best!

I just sold a ton of them on FSOT. I kept some complete sets but sold all the random ones, I think almost 200 of them

I never really used them but they were sure fun to collect!

Need to sell some for sure!

Hey Erika! I'm curious... Did you sell them in batches or as singles? IF I ever get the courage to purge, some of those may have to go...

I'm a card maker and stamper so I still love mine. Some of my favorites are a chevron and a zebra.

ditto. I was really tempted to buy the whole months of the year set but I talked myself out of it. I only bought a couple. Though when someone posted them in FSOT I was still tempted. I didn't like how the months weren't consistent in style but especially because some are abbreviated.

I bought a good majority of those..lol Im not sure why I bought them really, I just like that they are compact and fairly inexpensive ( I dont have a lot of budget to scrap with) But I now find I use them more and more because I am doing PL.

I bought alot of them but they are still in storage. I did get some when I bought some from a Peas. Great one word stamps that I can use in PL.

In fact I have already made a bunch of 3x4 journalling cards with them.

I remember. I used to buy them all the time. I have so many I haven't used though so I've quit buying them until I start using what I have.

Mine are stored in clear CD cases, along with all the other clear stamps I bought because I just "knew" I was gonna actually use them. Trouble is, I don't. I need to. I just don't.

Oh, heck yeah I remember them! I still collect them now but they are kind of hard to find around here; at least the new ones are. I've stopped buying so many though b/c it did turn out that I rarely used some, if ever at all. I sold a lot of them on Etsy, and I just went through and purged more to sell.

After I saw the new releases from Lawn Fawn, I told dh that I need to go make sure I am positive I got everything out that I don't want or use anymore.

I don't buy too many anymore though b/c some of them got me frustrated in how they don't stamp well. I have a few I won't sell b/c I use them to create a ton of Valentine's Day kid's cards that sell like crazy on Etsy.

I think I bought maybe 1 stamp set and it was for scrapping, which I've never used. I stopped buying stamps long ago because I just never use them.

So funny. I just pulled out a binder yesterday that has them in the front trading card pockets. My first thought was "what was I thinking?". My second thought was 'oh, these are still kind of cute, I should use them'. They work on scrapbook pages, cards, and project life styled pages. But I have less than 20, so not a lot.

I do remember that, but I would not cave on that bandwagon. I bought a few of them at LSS for $1 later, and have used those a few times.

Of course, although I didn't realize people weren't into that anymore! I had/have maybe five of them, but I hate using them because they are pretty poor quality compared to most of the other stamps in my collection.

I bought one wood-mount $1 stamp last night. It says "happy Valentine's day". I will use it for cards. I haven't bought image ones in forever...

You bet I remember them! They funded my scrapbook purchases for a good half a year, I had a Michaels just down the road for me and listed them for what I paid on Ebay. Some of those sets sold for $15, it was insane!

I didn't keep any to use, tho.

They don't come out with much good ones anymore and I don't think Michaels even gets them either. I see some come out at JoAnn's sometimes.
I'm still a sucker for dollar stamps though. I go through the studio 112 (K&Co) at JoAnn's. Trying to tell myself I don't need any while I paw through the bins. And I also look for when they carry inkadinkado dollar stamps, which is not all the time. I got a couple of fall ones but I didn't see any for Christmas/winter. Which is a good thing.

Another bandwagon I never hitched my horse to! I have about 8 sets that I use regularly for PL, Pet pages and cards.

I like the idea of using them for project life! I have a bunch and to be honest have used very few though I "had" to have them lol - so thank you so much for the idea since I just got project life in October.
