Border stickers and die cuts. I have at least 50 of them and I rarely use them. They are just so darn cute!

Kory-that's funny about the typewriter. When I was a kid I begged for one for Christmas because I was going to be the next Great American Novelist (LOL-that did not work out). I just asked my mom a week ago if it was still in the attic. She laughed at me and told me that she got rid of it like 10 years ago. it's too bad, some legit typewritten journaling would have made a great LO...

Baby themed anything!!! I haven't even started my son's book and I'm pretty sure I have enough paper and stickers to make 3 books.
Also I just recently started using brads and now I can't get enough of those either. That clearance sale at Js on saturday did me in!

So glad I am not suffering alone. Misery DOES like company. I just did a video about what I thought was just an unintentional collection, but I was sadly very wrong. I am not just collecting things but have a REAl disease that is threatening scrappers worldwide. SAF!!! Scrappers Avian Flu/Flew. More info on my blog and video tomorrow. And yes Henri Jean, I am pimping :-)

Pens, pencils and markers oh my! Yup, I have Copics, Prismacolors, Tombows, gel, metallic, and a whole motley crew that I can't even remember the brands. I can't get enough!

I will be on the road tomorrow but I will have to go take a peek. I can get some things on my phone but frustrating because it is so darn small, so most likely it will be from a hotel tomorrow night. Have several days of yours to catch up.

Adhesives. I'm a glue junkie. I love to use different adhesives for different things. Most of my collection were gifts or items that I won. I would have never thought of collecting adhesives intentionally!

Patterned paper and ANYTHING with Christmas - paper, embellishments, cartridges, stamps, ribbon, and on and on. I just can't resist Christmas!

Adhesives... that is great! I love it! I don't have enough adhesives... I am determined to find only one (ok, maybe 2) kind that works for everything.

I did realized tonight that I have much more ribbon than I thought. So I spent the evening reorganizing it for the 3rd time. Hopefully my new method will stick.

Tomorrow I'm planning on getting some vertical paper holders as my cart is now officially over capacity and the drawers are collapsing.

Still have no idea what to do with all these flowers. Oh and klong618, I'm with you on the brads. I just started collecting them too and now I have tons!! Guess I need to find a good way to store those too.

That is so funny...just tonight I was thinking about when I first started scrapping. I'd see pictures of scraprooms and they'd have so many different kinds of adhesives. I thought they were crazy....who needed that many different kinds??? Guess who has 2 baskets full now??

This is soo funny!
I can't seem to pass up really cute journalling cards, buttons, ribbon, Christmas stuff, and Halloween stuff.....
I actually use the journalling cards but have so many, it would take me to next year to use them all!
I realized at some point that I don't even use buttons on layouts and hardly ever use ribbon.....I did manage to purge a bunch of ribbon and buttons but I held on to the really cute ones......and still don't use them!!

DWelch!

I just saw your comment on my blog and laughed- I have quite a collection of manual typewriter stamps, TOO.

I also learned to type on a manual typewriter. I got one for Christmas when I was...very young. And with my Mom's old college typing textbook (!) - I began to teach myself to type in my bedroom.

I would KILL to still have my old typewriter! I dont even remember what happened to it...

-K




Mine is getting even worse. I recently bought two (not one - TWO) old portable manual typewriters at a flea market! I keep my stamps scattered around those. A friend of mine also gave me her mom's old (REALLY old) shorthand books and I have those there as well.

Christmas paper. And NO MORE, I've stopped. I have enough to make cards for the next 10 years and then some. I have to remind myself that I make at most 2-4 Christmas LOs per year, I don't need a collection pack for that.

Double-sided tape. I mean it isn't a collection exactly, because it all disappears, but I seem to have a stack of rolls in my drawer at any given time.

Darla I have 2 typewriter wooden stamp sets, because I bought a smaller set when I was travelling. That's one more than I need. I just need the matching numbers now and I'll be all set.

When I got my CE2 I had planned to get 1 or 2 carts because most of them are too cutesy. But I started getting more of them because I love labels, butterflies and flowers.

Mine is snowflakes and leaves, mostly maple. I'm not sure how unintentional it is though - as I seem to zone in on any in any store; as these are not restricted to crafts or scrapbooking. I have tons of stamps and punches and embellishments; but also candles, candle holders, centerpieces, table cloths, napkin rings, lanterns - (on and on and on). Oh ya - it's bad!

My worst/best unintentional collection would be holiday paper - Christmas, Halloween, St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, whatever. If they had Groundhog Day paper, I'd probably buy that, too. I'm obsessed with that pretty, pretty paper! However, with no kids, no nephews/neices/neighbors I have very limited use for holiday paper. How many holiday pictures of cats can you scrap???

And stamps. I don't stamp, but I keep buying them. And I bought a whole set of watercolor markers and have never used them because I don't color in things I never stamp.

Ah, yeah, I have a snowflake problem too. Which doesn't make sense; I make only about two dozen Christmas cards a year, which are all different and aren't all snowflakey, and I have little to no need for Christmas/winter layouts.
