Default Are you addicted to stamps/scrapbooking??

Hey everybody,

I just thought that it would make me feel better if I could get together with some people with the same problem that I have.....Stamp and scrap addiction. I just want it all...I find myself searching all the magizines for new products. I am obsessed with paper !!! My husband thinks I'm crazey for getting so thrilled about going to "M" for 5/$1.00 paper and says thats all he should've got me for Christmas. Well that would've been fine with me..but he did do good. I got a new scrapbooking bag and some other fun stuff !!

I sure hope there are others out there that are like me ...if not I guess I should start looking for someone to go talk to about my addiction.

Yes! I am totally addicted. And the sad thing is I'm mainly a collector! Truly I have enough stamps and scrap supplies that I could do both crafts for many years to come and never need to buy new supplies. But that doesn't stop me! I actually stamp more than I scrap. When my new scrap space is done
I'll get back to it. I really love both crafts.

Oh, that is exactly what I am, a collector. All my friends laugh at me because I collect more than I create but I tell them "just wait...one day".
Its kinda funny because who do they come to when they need something?
ME !! Anyway, good luck with your addiction and happy collecting.

Well, if you are addicted this is the place for you. I think just about everyone here is addicted to stamping and/or scrapping. If you want help getting over your addiction this is the wrong place to get help. SCS will only further your addiction. So, come on in and enjoy the addiction.

Yes, I'll admit it...I am an addict!

My DH was recently in my scrap/stamp room, that we are working on compeleting. He was trying to figure out how to make it bigger because he thinks I will ourgrow my 14x24 room to quickly.

I guess you could say I have a little more than I need...but not more than I WANT I want it all, and luckily I have a DH that also wants we to have it all!!!

My bank account is thankful that I DON'T SCRAP!! We'd be in the poorhouse if I did both.

However, I've just recently begun stamping & I can relate the the I-want-it-all thinking!!! Just went to my first SU party, & I made myself stick to a budget. I did well, I controlled myself, but BOY ~~ I just wanted one of everything in the catalog!!!

Unfortunately, I don't have a "space" right now. I'm huge into selling on Ebay, so my computer table/area is surrounded by STUFF. As soon as I can get organized, I'm going to made a small area down here so I can have room to stamp. For now, though, everything is in boxes in my closet, & I have to drag everything down to the kitchen table every time I want to stamp THAT is very un-fun!!!

Ummm Yes - I'm on this board at work, I draw pictures of layouts and cards on carefully folded pieces of paper (ie an 8 1/2 x11 piece folded into standard card size). Then home to work on these ideas - yep, got an addiction

God, I am the worst kind I am an addict and a hoarder! This means I buy it cos I love it and then won't use it cos I love it so much. I have to buy two of everything, one to use and one to hoard!

This is me exactly! If I USE something, even though I have 2, I have to go buy it again ASAP so I won't run out. I tried to make a decision to use a piece of basic grey, got it out, put it back, got it out, put it back. It's back now. It's safe from me. I'll think about it again this weekend. So, no you are not alone in your addiction! There are around 60,000 of us here! (last time I looked)

Kristi, you definitely are not alone, and Martha is soooo right. Not only will you be addicted to stamping/scrapping, but soon you will be addicted to SCS! I swear I can't get through the day w/o checking here a few times a day!

Hey, are are far worse things we can be addicted too, right? Enjoy yourself!
