Soooo...What exactly is your Scrapbook style?  Do you tend to stick to any particular style?  Do you find that you tend to stick to a certain type of page layout or embellishment?  Like chipboard?  Stamps?  Stickers?  Are you a digital scrapbooker or a traditional scrapbooker?  What size books do you tend to use?

As for me and my style, I love chunky and lots of stuff.  I embellish the hell out of everything!  Overstated, large and grandeur is me all of the way; which means that I also love bling!  Stickles, rhinestones, doesn't matter...I just am a sucker for shiny things!  

A huge section of my stash looks just like this organized in a rainbow fashion (ROYGBIV)

As for my layouts, I am a traditional scrapbooker.  I am very tactile and I need to have something physical to touch.  I like dimension and texture.  I am intrigued with some of the digital things that can be done (like adding text to photos), but I have to have be able to touch the paper.

I am also a 12 x 12 layout scrapbooker. The main reason for the 12x12 is that I need the larger space to have room for my photos AND embellies.  I use full and pocket style/Project Life page protectors.  I discovered Project Life about 2 years ago but just very recently started actually doing it though I have been using pocket page protectors and cards over the past couple of years.  Because of Project Life, I have discovered that I am finding that pops of color (for me) speak more loudly than lots of stuff.  (Oh dear, I am the queen of stuff and have LOTS of it to use in the next 50 years.) 

 Honey, this ain't even the half of it!

Though I am a Stampin' Up demonstrator and use lots of Stampin' Up products, I use lots of different supplies and I have lot of different brands in my stash.  Just like many others probably do, I tend to purchase whatever taps into my OOOOHHHHHH factor (or when I get sucked in, whatever the hottest new trend has been); so I have literally spent YEARS collecting (and hoarding, I'm afraid) scrapbook supplies.  

Once again, this is just a little bit of it.

Anyhoo, my ownership of the over abundance of endless supplies is (in part) the catalyst for my eclectic use of scrapbook supplies on my pages.  I like what I like and I don't want to be locked into a box with any one particular supplier/vendor/style, so the things that you will see here are an eclectic collection of things that I have purchased and are in my stash.  I am finding that a part of my niche is scrapbooking my stash because like I said, I have A L-O-T  O-F  S-T-A-S-H!  Therefore some things, (okay, a lot of things) you see on my blog may not be listed in regards to the supplies that I use, but whenever it is possible/feasible,  I will certainly share.  So, follow me on the trail of my junkie journey!  Here are a couple of pocket pages from last falls trip to the pumpkin patch.

I love the WRMK "Albums Made Easy" cards and used the ones from the "Tangerine" collection.

There are some Project Life cards here, though not sure which kit.
The flourish is from K&Co.

Again, several cards from the We R Memory Keepers - Albums Made Easy "Tangerine" kit.  The punched shapes & stamp are from Stampin' Up - (the word "fun").

Here are some close ups of the details on some of the cards.  I like using Stampin' Up punches because they are perfect for little pops of color (the circles and squares).

Thanks for looking!
