Spellbinders, good one. I bought a Tag Nestabilities from a flea market right after I got my Big Shot. I rolled it through a few times and was disappointed how it cut. Then I realized I needed to seperate them for individual tag sizes, those things should come with picture instructions
Epoxy stickers are no good after just a few months in the package (the rack of older ones at Joann's looks appalling), but I guess to be fair, epoxy stickers aren't really any good to begin with.
Completely agree! They are JUNK! Thankfully the ones I bought were super cheap, and I've only used them on 1 or 2 layouts. I should probably track down those layouts and rip them off. In my opinion, it is a disservice to market them as scrapbooking supplies.
I suppose ALL of my supplies would be considered 'old.' I especially like my Making Memories rub ons.
... is it bad that I'm sitting here thinking of all my stuff and it's almost all less than a year old? I know I have some stuff that is older than that, but I don't think I use it much.
Most of my old stuff is papers that are 8.5x11 - I scrap in 12x12 now. Old stickers that have a white outline and aren't dimensional at all. I've just grown out of them. I also used to use clear photo corners on EVERY photo because I didn't want to damage the photo by permanently gluing it down. Now that all my pics are digital and I can reprint them anytime I want, I am over the whole clear photo corner thing. Hehe. I suppose my decorative scissors still function perfectly well, but I've kind of gotten over them too. Why do I even still hang on to this stuff?? (oh, that's right, because I'm a hoarder)
Honestly, looking through my old scrapbooks is hilarious, not just from looking at my 80s clothes and hairstyles, but looking at my scrap style too
I still like a lot of my old papers. Some of them haven't held up as well, like the really busy, theme-y papers (Paper Pizzazz, anyone?) but even those still work on themed pages, cut up into embellishments or as decorative strips or borders. old 8.5 x 11 papers can be layered on top of 12 x 12.
And I still have a bunch of Fresh Cuts sheets (anyone else remember those?) that still look awesome when you cut them out carefully. Just one or two as a page accent is a quick and easy way to finish off a page.
I just started scrapbooking so don't have any "old" stuff as of yet, lol. But if you are using clear photo corners. You can also use removable glue dots on some of your photos too. I used them for some original photos. The ones that have damages corners or tears on them. I like using removable glue dots if I can't use photo corners at all. Thought to let you guys know about that. If you haven't already thought of it.
Just today I grabbed some old Cosmo Cricket round typewriter letters... they worked like a charm! I thought for sure the sticky would be gone. They are one of my first purchases when I started scrapbooking in 2007.
