I love my punches (not sure if that counts as a supply or a tool) and I use them to keep my 5 year old occupied so I can scrap!

I cut my patterned paper scraps into small shapes and give them to my 4-year old. He uses them to make collages (which keeps him occupied while I am doing dishes or getting dinner ready)!

Bart and Kellie said...

Oh I would love this! I save all the negatives for letters and numbers (insides of a,b,d,g etc.) and use them as polka dots or designs in the backgrounds or accents for scrapbook pages.

I use the plastic packaging from brads, etc. to squirt paint into before using on my layouts. Easy cleanup, and re-using the packaging is environmentally friendly :)

Alice said...

I've just ventured into sewing on my pages. An old trick, but new to me!

AmieeAya said...

I like to use packaging as pieces in my layouts too. Sassafras and October Afternoon both use a lot of stuff that looks like lined paper, which look great as a journal tag or background to an embellishment.

Arjanne said...

I'm not that creative, that's why I need this copy!!!

St├ęphanie said...

I love to paint a "white wash" on my old papers so that they don't get unused.

cindy said...

I love patterned paper and I use it for everything. At the moment I love using it as ribbon in layouts and cards. :D

Tiptoe15 said...

Thank you so much for the giveaway! I just love using plain old paper. Cardstock or patterned paper - doesn't matter to me! I love it all! :) thanks again!

Amybug said...

yes please!

This is a fantastic book, I would love to have it. These past weeks I have been using the metalic operculum of my yogurts pots. I use it with my butterfly punches and my tag punch. It gives an interesting result on my pages. And as my son says, I am getting better with the 3 R (reduce, reuse, recycle) :)
