Last year I didn't use anything but photos and PL and a typewriter. This year I've gotten so excited about building a stash of supplies for PL. I bought almost $100 worth of stuff at 2peas tonight of a bunch of things to use w PL that I have either never bought or never used. I also found OA tid bits, doo dads, label stickers, journal cards, and sprinklers in all the collections that are sold out on 2peas. I also picked up a few of the SC masks to try out on my grid cards. Hope those work good! I also picked up some stamps, but those are not as exciting as the other stuff!!! EEEEK. SOOO excited!

I used a lot of things in my stash too! There were many things that I had that never made it on to LOs but were perfect for PL. it's really like scrapbooking in mini

I'm using everything NoN PL!! My stash is way too large to even think about buying specific products for PL. I will admit though that I have bought some 6x6 paper pads with PL in mind, but other than that, I plan to use my stash for the entire project!

Last year, when I was doing PL, it was washi tape. I used a ton of washi tape.

Exactly! I haven't purchased anything specifically for PL beyond page protectors & an album.

I would say the only PL-specific products I've purchased have been WRMK page protectors and an album. I suppose you could say stamps, but a) they aren't Becky Higgins brand and I use them on everything. I'm using my stash - lots of cardstock, washi, stamping, and wood veneer shapes.

I bought the amber kit when it first came out, and it's just too much of the same thing in colors that aren't me.

I love what Becky has done and I've been drooling over some of these new kits, but I'm really excited to dig into stuff I've had for years and be able to use it. Finally! WooHoo!!

For the last two years I only used the page protectors and a set of BH digital images. SOOOO I guess my answer would be cardstock???
Seriously I used ALOT of my stamps that I have collected over the years and alot of digi brushes that I also collected but never used.

6x6 pads, washi tape, stamps (especially Ali Edwards)and date stamps.

My spreads usually start with a 6x6 pad, then whatever journal cards match/work, then stamps and washi to play.

washi, leftover bits of border stickers, those tiny word stickers that come on Bella Blvd and EP letter sticker sheets, small stamps, bits of patterned paper, label stickers (like OA), etc.

This year I'm using what the BH grid cards, a bit of SS Snap, what I had leftover from my 2012 Cobalt kit, and the rest is all stash. Though I will admit that I sometimes purchase with PL in mind!

I've been using stickers that I've had in my stash forever! Somehow I could never use them on my pages but 1 sticker on an entry looks okay, I think.
I also have been using a lot of 6x6 pads. I use a lot of scraps from projects. I also use svg files to cut my own labels and stuff.
Another thing I've found myself using a lot more then ever is all those $1 stamps sets and my punches.

I've been using my label maker like crazy. I love that I can add a little phrase, date or just one simple word. It's fast and easy.

I use a lot of digital kits from The Sweet Shoppe. I like to add embellishments directly to my pictures in PSE and I make all of my title cards this way as well.

In addition to BH PL stuff, I use We R MK for album and page protectors. I use my stash for patterned paper and cards, washi tape, stamps, some twine, and assorted alpha stickers. I use punches occasionally as well. I love Snap products for my album!
