I love to stamp and add some different designs to my scrapbooking pages. Do any of you add this embellishment to your scrapbooking. It saves on stickers!

I was a stampin up demonstrator for 10 years and just gave it up a couple months ago. I just don't have time for it right now and it's not bringing in any money for me. Challenging with the kids. But I do mainly use rubber stamps in my scrapbooks. I don't really "get" the stickers either. My stamps I can use forever. I love stamping.

I have a few stamps but really like all the fun embellishments available.

Mixing stamping with your embellishments works too...like doing a gold leaf then adding a colored sticker with the same kind of leaf...

I love scrapbooking! I know what you mean - I hate to use stickers because if I have to copy my work (to sell a relisted item) its harder to do. I use my sewing machine to add color around the photo mats. I also like to draw and color it in with colored pencils or markers. I use mulberry paper to add texture or fur. You can check out my Tear Bears at www.MadebyTammy.com. of how I use mulberry paper for fur.

I have seen sewing done on cards in magazines but have never tried the technique. Sounds interesting.

I've seen all kind of stamping stuff for scrapbooking but never tried it before. I really haven't even thought about using stamps for scrapbooking. I might have to give it a try. What kind of stamps do you have? Letters or words or different pictures?

Hearts, letters, all kinds of stamps. They just add so much to a page!

Stamping is actually one thing I haven't tried with my scrapbooking pages. I have been meaning to though. The problem for me is that they're just too expensive and you only get so many designs, whereas with stickers the possibilities are endless. Do you do any stenciling? I really like to use those little chalk palletes and a stencil and make a design on my page. Happy scrapbooking! :)

I haven't tried stenciling but I have alot laying around I could try. If you go to Dollar Tree, Michael's or JoAnn's they have dollar stamps. Dollar Tree actually sells two to a package of very nice stamps.
