I have been scrapping for about 6 1/2 years now, and I have just now discovered STICKERS.

Oh I had a tiny bout with sticker sneeze early on, but with no LSS and the closest shopping 30 minutes away, I quickly took the "cure" and purchased a die cutter. After all this time, I have started buying collections that include letter stickers and die cut sheets, and watching the Glitter Girl videos, and all I can think about is stickers. Big ones, tiny ones, letter ones, 3D ones. I should be ashamed, right? I own two die cutters. But man, oh man, to just peel them off and slap them down... Yessss!

I'm the same and I *totally* blame Glitter Girl for it

A year of GG videos has taken me from not buying thickers at all, to occasionally buying a pack if there was a sale,and now to multiple packs of full price ones!

The kind of stickers Glitter Girl uses are really quite a bit nicer than the ones I had when I first started scrapping in 2001. Still, having started back in the day when there wasn't much other than stickers, I can't imagine not having them as an option. Often, I try to find ways to dress my stickers up though. For instance, I bought a layout kit from LSS awhile back, and they had the old-style stickers in it, but on their sample layout, they were giving them dimension by backing them on cardstock. On other layouts at the store, they pop dot the stickers.

I like stickers. I'm a paper, stickers, and picture kind of scrapper.

I don't have die cuts nor other embellishments, no buttons, ribbon, but I did buy 1 roll of washi tape.

Oh my goodness. How could one scrapbook without stickers? Okay, I know how. But more to the point: WHY?

If it helps put the olden days of scrapping in perspective, my first few pages after I discovered such things as scrapbook supplies include a photo of a rose bush silhouetted with deckle-edged scissors with sandylion holographic frog stickers jumping out from every part of the photo. (why yes, one of the first things I ever scrapbooked was a day when a frog jumped out of the roses and freaked everyone out for all of thirty seconds. If this was some sort of early version of 'everyday documentation' then it's a wonder that ever caught on. )

So, so glad we have nice stickers now too.
...though I think I would still find it hard to pass up a sheet of Lisa Frank unicorns. Not sure how to scrapbook with them though!


love & glitter,

I was under the impression that since I had invested so much money in die cutting that I should just make everything from scratch! NO MORE! I have even set up a special storage container to house my stickers as my collection grows. And believe me, it's about to grow!

I hated stickers for years, but I have come to love Thickers and I'm even liking chipboard and cardstock stickers.

Some of us might remember this magazine. I actually got a copy of it.

I'm in the same boat! Glitter Girl got me hooked on stickers. I never had any. Now I'm a October Afternoon addict. I haven't got thickers but she is soooo tempting me.

I have to watch my spending so I will only buy these collections on sale. And man were there sales at the end of last year! LOL

I have a ton of stickers but then I got my die cutting machines and stopped using them but then after watching Shimelle and a few others scrapping I am back into stickers big time. I bought 12 packs of thickers between my Monday and Tuesday run to town!

I got a Cricut for Christmas last year so I could cut out my own letters for titles. Shortly after that, I started hanging out here and discovered Thickers and mini letters. Oh, my word. I love them all!

I've used my Cricut for many things over the past year, but only one title.

I am crazy about stickers. I have a huge collection. Some of my stickers are the most expensive items in my stash. I order stickers from Japan and Europe. I buy stickers every week. I make my own stickers with my Xyrons and die cut machines. I even turn my own drawings into stickers. Even though I have all these great tools to make my own stickers I will never stop buying them.

I can remember when I first started scrapbooking all the stores would have a big wall covered in rolls and rolls or Mrs Grossman stickers, it was heaven. Thank goodness the stickers that we use today have evolved from such things as holographic animals and cartoon everything

I have 2 PSB that are overflowing with stickers. I used to buy them like crazy but got away from them. Now I only buy thickers for the most part - just because I have so many to use. I knew I kept all my stickers for a reason!

Oh Patty, at least you kept them. I had purged most of mine a couple of years ago. But the stickers I had are so different from the ones I am loving now, so no big deal.

Bought a Silhouette so that I could make my own sticker substitutes, but then I found those little letter stickers (Tiny Type I think they're called) and I'm hooked... I love the colours and size and font... I also can't resist those MME sheets... Love the smaller sheets with eight or ten banner-like stickers on there... They work so well grouped with other embellishments... I've stayed away from Thickers and chipboard ones, but only because of they take up too much of my scrap budget ...

I still buy stickers, and use them all the time. I have a huge stash.. They are always coming out with new and better designed ones. I have them all hanging on my clip it up. I think it makes scrapping easy. I use lots of photos on my pages. So easy to add a sticker to those empty spaces.
