I had always thought that patterned paper was the one product I had tons of - until I recently did a re-organization of my scrap area. Turns out, the buttons/brads/enamel dots are the most prolific items in my stash. Luckily, they take up less room than paper, but keeping them organized remains a challenge. That, and the fact that they seem to unexplainably multiply every night in my scraproom. Surely it has nothing to do with me compulsively adding them to my bucket, right?

So what supply is your kryptonite???

Pattern paper for sure. If I never bought another piece I could still scrap daily for the rest of me life...and probably several other people could too. But that does not stop me from drooling over and purchasing new paper all the time!

Just one? If I had to pick one, I'd say letter stickers/thickers. I probably have enough letter stickers to write a novel.

Enamel Dots and wood veneers are my two most prolific. Hard to tell which one I have more of because I store them differently.

Various shades of kraft paper or kraft cardstock. I use it a lot and I tend to buy a couple of packages when it is on a good sale.

Paper, paper, and more paper. Yesterday I was feeling bad about buying some supplies last month and not using them. They were still in the bag that I brought them home in totally untouched. As I was grabbing for the bag it caused an avalanche of 6x6 paper pads to come crashing down on me. That only added to feeling bad about untouched supplies. I'm now a frozen pea in a deep freezer in a cold, dungeon-like basement. With a lock on it.

Must use 6x6 paper pads.

Just one! No way, first is my wooden embellishments then my enamel dots and flair and then cardstock and Pattern Papers.

Oh and considering I have 5 candy jars full of flowers probably should add those

Patterned Papers, Journaling cards (including PL cards and I don't do PL), and then Thickers. I can't count the many mason jars full of buttons.

I know I don't have as much patterned paper as a lot of people, but I still have more than I will ever be able to use.

And while I have my fair share of alphabets, brads & eyelets, I'm thinking it's solid cardstock for me. Mine is all stored in the Cropper Hopper vertical storage. I have 12 8.5x11 and 10 12x12. All full. Luckily it never goes out of style!

Patterned paper and thickers, both of which get used on every LO I do.
Scarily though, my paper clip collection has grown massively and I now have a jam jar full of them and only bought the first packet six weeks ago. I think they are having babies, lol!

Well, this is a hard question.
I have a lot of everything
I actually have more buttons than pattern paper. But the pattern paper takes up much more room.

I would have to go with : Enamel dots, Paper Clips, veneer and flair. I have bowls of them on my desk, but they do go on every layout so do get used.

Paper wise, i have enough for 3 layouts and that is me out, I tend to work kit to kit and use it up, this way i do not grow a stash and get overwhelmed

Happy Scrapping

Well, patterned paper....but then I USE all of it....

If you count tech stuff, then my Silhouette files/images are at the top of the list...
If not counting tech stuff, then I have a pretty large collection of chipboard & wood shapes, next would be tags (and I'm continually attracted to them even though I can make my own with my Cameo now!)
