I just filled my cart with enamel dots. I love the slightly raised texture and splash of color they add to my LO's.
I also had to get away from buying washi tape which is another addiction I have.

What's your latest (or still) addiction?

My addiction is enamel dots, although I am mostly doing digi now - I still use digital enamel dots. So paper or digi - its enamel dots and has been for about 4 years.

Another vote for enamel dots!
I'm also really into stamping and Travelers Notebooks!

Distress crayons! I got hooked on them for making flowers and now find all kinds of fun things to do with them.

Sorry it took me so long. Thanks for asking!
The doily on this one is cut from white, heavy vellum that I colored with crayons and softened with a baby wipe (I think!)
The flowers are made from solid light peach cs and colored then water distressed.

This one I mixed a tiny dab of crayon with a drop of water and sponged it on with a stencil.

Here I just dabbed on 2 or 3 colors with my fingertip to accent the waves of the quote.

Somewhere I found a video by Tim Holtz that had more ideas for using the crayons, but I don't remember where I found it.

Enamel dots here as well! I love that they are flatter than gems so that my cards can be thinner than the 5mm max in the UK for minimum postage, and still have sparkle.

I'm loving Distress Inks (still) and now Distress Oxides as well. I learned how to do simple paper marbling a few weeks ago, and I spent my birthday money on some marbling inks, so that will be the next craze. lol

marbling inks? That sounds interesting! I'm so glad I started this tread, I'm getting some fun ideas!

Just last night I said to myself that I wanted to fill my cart with nothing but enamel dots. Enamel dots are so cute, and when they sparkle I just cant stop looking at em.

Enamel dots, absolutely!

That's not what I spend the most money on though -- that'd be laser cut chipboard. At least I've found a Canadian outfit that makes some really good stuff, which helps a bit. The shipping from Australia was killing me.

So Alana, as a fellow washi tape addict, I have a you tube vlogger that you need to watch: scrappy nerd uk! She posts scrapbooking process videos and one of them is titled "washi tape Wednesdays"... I binge watched almost all of them.
