So I was putting items in my bucket and realized..I had WAY more embellishments than paper. Way more.
I'm an embellishment junkie, way can I say
So what do you fill your cart with...paper or embellishments? Is it an even mix?

Normally I would say paper, but this time it might be an even mix. I am low on both!! (I know how could that happen!!) but, I'll get back to you on that in about an hour i'm filling my bucket now.

Paper, always.

I'll probably buy one or two alphas, maybe a sheet of other stickers, an embellishment pack and the rest of my order will be paper.

I do buy a lot of embellishments at the craft shop rather than online though - things like paper flowers, bling, buttons, brads and ribbon, I tend to buy the shop's own brand rather than the more expensive scrapbooking manufacturer's version. I can usually get a match and it leaves me more money for paper

Normally it is paper but this last order I would say was an even mix. I have more paper than I will ever use so I am trying to stock up on embellishments these days.

I used to mostly do paper, becuase it's more economical. But recently I'm doing a pretty even mix, and I'm loving all the fun pre-made and dimensional embellishments!

My purchasing has been a little lopsided lately,too. So many cute embellishments and goodies out right now! I need to even it out a little and order a few more papers so I can use up all the delicious embellishments I seem to have overindulged in,lol!

It always used to be paper and I still buy plenty of pp but lately I've been getting more embellishments. A lot of the layouts I've been pinning/bookmarking have been inspiring me to branch out and try new things vs. keeping very simple. Loving all the new options and fun things I have to play with!

Definitely paper for me. I love a good embellishment or sticker too but if push comes to shove I always go for the paper.

Paper! I am deffinately into paper, especially those sheets you can cut out images and use them as embellishments. I have a harder time mixing and matching my embellies so I choose mostly paper cause I get more for my money that way

Paper for me for sure. But I've been really trying to balance it more recently with embellies. I think the embellies are just harder to get a feel for online vs in person. But at my LSS, they often don't stock the embellies that go with a line Like, I've never seen the Glitz rhinestones (the giant ones) in person, but I've added them to my cart, and hope they look good

Paper. Embellishments are more expensive. With paper, I get the pretty without all the cost.

I always seem to go for stamps, embellishments, and collection kits. So basically, just about everything!

Embellishments mostly!

I think it's because I have about an inch of paper that I want to blow thru this winter. When I'm done with that then I'll start considering buying more paper.

But embellishments often inspire me to add more and more paper ( to go with the colors on the embellishment, so I'm very happy, because I want to use the paper I've got!

My only "resolution" this year was to use my paper stash. I'm doing a pretty good job of it too.

Paper, but I put some collections that had stickers in there too. To ever have enough to make it worthwhile for me, I would have to probably throw some tools in to.

I usually have more paper, but I've realized recently that my embellishment selection is getting very small, so I've been trying to expand. My latest order has 5 embellishment items (one of which is a 3 pack of washi) and 19 pieces of pp. That's a lot more balanced than it usually is!

What are you looking at?

For me, paper. I'm a moderate embellisher so I don't need huge gobs of embellishments and often those I favour come in packs of many (ie. buttons, wood veneers, pins, etc.) so I don't need to refill them as often. It's harder to find the nicer paper lines over here so it's more convenient for me to buy paper from 2Peas.

Most times paper and then I don't have any embellies... I really need to learn to make them myself with all this paper I have.

I can't afford to fill my scrapping bucket here at 2peas - the shipping costs to Australian are crazy! .. It's way more for shipping here than any other online US scrap store.
I shop locally and get the same items at good prices and usually with free shipping.

Hooroo! & Happy Scrapping !!

I try to make it a pretty even mix. It doesn't do me much good to have one without the other.

However, at this point I could probably order nothing but embellishments for the rest of the year. I highly doubt I would run out of paper.

Paper, definitely.

I love stamps, so they may be tied with embellies on some orders. Not too many of each of these.
