Mmmm, I'm still so new to all this that I don't think I've found any non-traditional supplies yet...but I do have to have music! Lauren sent me some vinage card thingys ...tarot cards, language game cards, etc, and I'm looking forward to using those very soon.
HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY Stef...looking forward to another year of wonderful creations!


Happy Blog Birthday!!! Lately I've been using my Target $ spot twine...

My fave non tradional scrappy "supply" these days are reinforcements. I buy them at my local office supply store and go crazy with them..paint them, doodle on them, layer them, etc.
P.s. I LOVVVEEEE Those cupcake stamps:)

Oh, I hope it's me. I loooove that cupcake set. They are sold out around here.

Probably my most non-traditional supply is dry wall mesh tape that I emboss and use here and there as a background.

Oh I've been drooling over that cupcake set for a while now. Eeegads...non-traditional things I like to use...let's see...I like the mesh bags that cherry tomatoes come in...they have the coolest look to them.


I use odd stuff all the time. I recycle the mail a lot but one fav is using drywall tape/mesh. You can ink it and its tons cheaper than magic mesh.
I used it here.


Happy Blog Birthday to you!!! Woohoo!! :)
Non-traditional supply? Well, since I'm still quite new, I don't have much that is non-traditional.. still learning! :)

Congrats...I enjoy your blog and try and visit daily. I love using paint chips as they are free from the Home Improvement centers and they come in such a variety of colours.
Thanks for a chance to win.

Happy Blog Birthday! How exciting!!The only real non-traditional thing that I can think of right now is the piece of luggage I use to take to big crops - it's made to hold clothes and a laptop - but it has a pop out side table that folds down. I love it - it gives me a little extra table space and it has tons of storage. Plus it wheels around and hubby was just going to toss it so it was free to me!

Happy blog birthday! I'd have to say that my favorite "strange" stamping supply is a standard page protector. Slice it open, smoosh some ink around on it, then press it to paper for cool backgrounds! (I've been eyeing up that HA cupcake set for quite some time now - I love it but just haven't brought myself to spend the $)


Happy blog B Day!! I'm a big fan!

My favorite non-traditional supplies are all of the "random" things I pick up at Target in the $1 area. I find really interesting things there!


Happy blog-birthday to you ;D
I guess the most 'non-traditional' items I use on my cards are silk flowers (from Michael's, or the $Tree)... I love ripping the flowers off of the bunches that I buy!

{thanks for stopping by my blog, and for your sweet comment.... I appreciate it!}

Happy Blog-o-versary!!!!

I use LOTS of non-scrappy supplies in my creations! My new favorite tool is the Wilton Fondant Cutter/Embosser - besides doing neat embossed things (it's on a wheel runner, kind of like an old fabric marking tool), it's FABULOUS for adding ink - perfect stitched look in runner form that can do curves easily!


Hey!!! Happy Blog Birthday!!! I, too, LOVE the cupcake set!!!

I use I'm not as original as I though, from reading these other comments! LOL! I use paint chips, cause they're free! I also use mail stuff... And I love anything I can find in the $1 Spot at Target! But now I'll have to try the dry wall mesh!!! Thanks for the ideas, ladies!


Happy blog Birthday!!!
I too love paint chips!


Happy Blog Birthday to you Stef !

Happy Non traditional supplies I've used : pom pom trims from the haderdashery section of an upmarket departmental store from Bangkok ! But now after CHA Summer 08, I think Maya Road does a fab job at only US$0,75 per yard they said !


Im just getting into stamping and the only thing I can think of is using the backs of cereal boxes to die cut shapes and ink or apply a graphic to it, kinda like cheap and free chipboard, lol!

Thanks for the giveaway, looks yummy :0)


OOps forgot to say Happy Blog Birthday to you too!


Congats to you, Yippee!

One of my favorite choices is to use the quilting template tools by June Taylor . I have the sets of circles,ovals,stars so far and I'm hoping to complete my collections. They are flexible but sturdy and range in sizes from 2"-8". Best of all they were very inexpensive.


Hi Steph!! CONGRATS on your one year blog birthday..isn't it fun to celebrate!! I love to use handmade fabric yo-yos on my cards and recently I started using my old ugly sparklee eye shadow to add a bit of "bling" to my works of art...thanks for the fun and those cupcake stamps are way too CUTE!!!

Donna Coffman

Anything I can cover with paper. Any plastic packaging . I love your website , thank you for the wonderful ideas.

Happy first Blog-aversary!!! Your work is amazing! Keep up the great work!

Oh a BIG congrats to YOU! Happy Birthday ;^)*
I love to use crumpled plastic wrap to ink and blot -- makes a great sort of mottled/crackled backgrounder that is different every time... I like to use it for a gestural sort of leafy effect, too! Thanks for all you share... I LOVE your blog!


Congrats Stef. You probably already know my fave, but I'll tell you anyway. My Hubbies Toothbrush! Love it to ink up and drag across the edges of my layers. I do get tons of people concerned about his teeth and have even received toothbrushes in the mail. Too funny!

I guess my non-traditional item would be the threading plastic pick used for flossing under bridges - it makes threading thread through buttons so easy - it si so flexible and I also use it with ribbon sometimes....I would love to have this stamp set!!!
