...collect all your paper scrapbooking stuff? since i've seen some or your scrap spaces I'm just curious if I ever get into paper scrapbooking, which I'm hoping to someday, then i'll have to have mine portable and work on the kitchen table unless I get a different desk in the computer room where i am now. someday maybe. I already have some things like stickers and some neat scissors that cut edges nice and different. hmmm but besides that...not much i don't think i'll ever get a cricut even though it looks awesome! I think i'll just end up using markers to write everything on my pages. Unless there is another way to do it? I was so tempted to go buy a small scrapbook kit today but had to get home to put DD down for a nap
Majority of my stuff came from ebay. If you look through embellishments in scrapbooking and just page through all the listings, you get lots of different embellishment ideas. Or a scrapbooking idea book helps a lot too. Make a list as you see things of items you'd be interested in using as embellishments.......buttons, ribbon, fibers, ect.........
Oh and I collected the majority of my stuff w/in a few months......3/4......that was when I had a lot of time when i just had Tyler.....
I think a kit is a great way to start if you don't have much. Then I just watch the sales at Michaels, AC Moore and Joanns. Then I buy what I need/want when it is on sale. Rarely to I pay full price for anything related to scrapbooking.
i wish they had a craft/hobby store here. the closest i get is the hardware store the nearest scrapbooking place is so expensive. they have lots of neat things though but its full price stuff, nothing ever on sale of course. They sell a few items at this discount store i go to at the mall. They sell small kits and a few papers and stickers and albums and some ribbon that's not too badly priced but its so few things. I can't wait to get to the states in August. I plan on stocking up on a few basic things while i'm there hopefully stuff on sale!
I started collecting when K was born...so I guess almost 18 months ago. My collection has grown and grown! When I started, I had a few different colored cardstock sheets and some pens and my Creative memories cutters set. That was it. Now I have almost a full closet of stuff. LOL!

I just have been collecting as I go along. I don't remember what I bought to start up, it was so long ago. I've been at it for almost 5 years now.

I had started scrapbooking in 2000 but mainly used colored paper and stickers. I started hardcore scrapping in January 2007 and a little more than 1/2 of my stuff I bought in 2-3 months time. Most everything I buy is either on sale, clearence or I've used a coupon for.
I started scrapping about a year ago full-time! I started off with a kit, and I agree, it's a great way to start off. Everything matches, it comes with alpha letter, tags, borders, and lots of paper. I made a lot of pages with my kits! I finally branched out (thanks to these wonderful ladies) and started buying different things! I now have a closet full of goodies!
I've been doing this for about 2 years now. I don't have near as much stuff as these ladies but I'm getting there. I use Hobby Lobby a lot. We only recently got a Micheals. I also check out Big Lots, Tuesday Morning, Walmart, Target, and I look for clearance stuff online.
