Sewing on a page. LOVE the look, but I don't have my sewing machine set up in my scrap room, and it just seems like so much work to drag it out...

Sewing...I love the look but I'm not that great at it (just do baby blankets really) and it is a lot effort for me to pull out my sewing machine so I just haven't even wanted to try and attempt it on a LO. I really should just go for it, lol

Gelatos, machine stitching (but have done it by hand), a manual die-cutting machine and embossing plates with it...

Just a few things that come to mind. There are so many awesome things to try, but my budget doesn't allow it all - at least not yet

Don't shop...Adopt.

Gelatos, but I just bought 36 of those bad boys so it's about to go down.

Stitching - I love the look but honestly I don't have a place to keep my machine set up, so it doesn't seem worth the effort to drag it out

I just bought some enamel dots on 2Peas today.

And I found some fabulous sequins (a rainbow pack with silver, gold, orange, red, pink, purple blue, green, and aqua) at Michael's for like $3! They were in the kids craft aisle. So I'm excited to finally use those two products on my pages.

I think I've tried pretty well everything once (though some things I haven't got on well with and not repeated!).

Mine is more the format - I've never done 8.5x11 pages or pocket page protector scrapping.

Never tried:
Sewing on a page/card
Washi I do have 3x rolls, but have never used them....
Enamel dots

....I'm sure there is lots I haven't tried really.....

Although I did do a wedding album, and printed out the song they had at the wedding onto vellum, but took it to the dressmaker to sew onto the excuse, she had the *correct* thread already

I can't think of anything I haven't tried? And I have the crowded scrap room to prove it I love tools and trying new things.

I have not used Gelatos, but I have used watercolors and watercolor pencils. I may have to check these Gelatos out!

embossing powders. If I want that slick, dimensional look, I just go over my design with glossy accents. But I have recently been toying with giving it a shot.

Me too for misting ... but want to! Also, copics ... I love stamping sometimes, but usually just a text "saying". I don't have the patience to sit and colour in all those little spaces and do all the shading, although it looks awesome on other people's work. I did try machine stitching once, but I was so afraid of creasing the paper that I've never tried it again.

I really can't think of anything I haven't tried once. I'm a sucker for a new technique. There are a few I may never do again, like paper piecing.
