Question Past Trends You Find Silly NOW :)

THIS should make for a good laugh! Okay, so I loved the thread about trends, which ones you like, which ones you don't like, trends you see in the future...

Now, I'd like to know what Past Trends you find silly now! Crank open those old scrapbooks and take out those old cards! I want some confessions!!!

Here are mine:
1. Those sticker letters with the dots at the ends...I can't explain them very well, but they took up a lot of space on my creations about 8 years ago! LOL!

2. Buying that darn quickutz....

3. Gluesticks....oh the days of goopy gooey lumpy creations that never quite held! YAY! for the ATG gun!!!!

4. STICKERS....for everything. Before I had stamps I had too many stickers!

I know some of you make wonderful cards with them .... but I have a problem putting buttons on my cards! Buttons go on cloth, clothes, etc - not on my card! Don't shoot me - but I think it's silly.

<giggle> I use quickutz dies in my CB.

This was a trend only in my own mind, but when I first started, I thought I needed to put fun fur on all of my cards. Fun Fur. *gulp* My now CAS-lovin' self shudders at the thought!

(disclaimer: there are lots of beautiful projects with fiber, i'm not dissing fiber, but when i used it, it was a hot mess)

It's still a trend, but I find cards that cannot be mailed (due to many layers, 3 dimensional embellishments, etc) to be silly.

I know that the ones people make are gorgeous to look at and show incredible investments of time and also money in supplies, but a card that cannot be mailed just seems over the top to me. It's a card!

Now, other paper crafting that is not a card, but shows off the maker's skills and talents I DO love. Etha sent me this gorgeous banner for my birthday and it now hangs in my dining room just above the whitework sampler she gave me years ago. So, I am SO TOTALLY not against multiple layers and magnificent creations- I just think putting so much into a card that it is un-mailable is silly.

Hey! I am such a dinosaur, I still use glue stix sometimes. I love the purple scotch brand ones. Very helpful if you need to "slide" the layers together. For all else, I LOVE my ATG. I agree with the above poster, my cards are pretty flat since 98% of them are mailed.

Krystie Lee, you have totally cracked me up! I can't tell you how many fun fur cards I made when I first started. I thought I was way ahead of everybody else and that fun fur would be the next 'great' thing!

But you can mail nearly anything, why not a bulky card?! It just doesn't have to be in a standard envelope. I've used the clear boxes PTI packages their stamps in to mail a couple of extra bulky cards. The mail lady was FLOORED when she peeked into the box at the card. LOL.

I hear ya. I do love to look at these beautiful cards but even some of the cards that I have done get so heavy from all the layers I can barely get them to stand.

I like glue sticks for some applications, too. I have one that seems as strong as cement!

I'm with you on stickers...I just don't "get" them. Don't shoot me, but the Cricut for card-making. How on earth do you use it on cards? Also, tearing edge rulers. These seem kind of redundant to me. Decorative scissors used to cut mats for your photos -- that's a trend I'm glad has gone by the wayside!

For me...decorative scissors...before die cuts...and even before punches...I used decorative scissors on every thing. I would use a sticker...back it on a piece of crappy thin cs...and trace around with the decorative scissors. Don't get me wrong...I still use them on occasion...but I really shouldn't.

Staples!!!! Had to get all the colors, never used them...
Decorative scissors!!!!! Had to have LOTS!!! Have never used most of them.....

I'm always mailing cards that are bulky and have LOTS of embellishments and layers.... I'm just doing my part to keep the post office in business

I'm blessed that a lot of my friends and family live nearby so their cards are handed to them. Sometimes the card's included with or attached to the gift. For the cards I mail, a card in a clear envelope and slipped into a padded envelope works. (I keep the bubble stuff from packages.) I figure the extra stamp is worth it. So far, people say "thank you", many say they keep all my cards, a couple say they display them but until today I've not had anyone say "how silly!" Just pointing out that not everyone mails their cards.

You use it like any other punch or die cut. Here's a card I made last year for my grandson.

I'd never 'shoot' you but you can shoot over to these places to find more Cricut cards and projects if you're interested.

Decorative scissors and stickers, definitely, and also the photo papers, like papers full of candy corn images, pine trees, rubber ducks, bowling pins, etc. I have paper stacks with photo images of keys and gauges. Why did I buy those?

I found an old scrapbook that I had made in 1998 for our dance group's cruise - saved EVERYTHING and it shows??!!? - stickers everywhere, those 'balloon' stickers that you wrote in (some already had funny sayings) and every picture was matted and trimmed with those scissors - also, DP was pretty crude too - some of the paper I used was computer paper from staples - we've come along way baby !!

This may still BE a trend. I don't keep up too well, I'm afraid. Anyhow, I have always thought torn edges on paper are kind of silly. And the rulers that you could buy to make the tears look "different." This was very popular when I started papercrafting and scrapbooking a few years ago.

Last year for my birthday a well intending friend gave me several packages of some fancy computer paper....she said 'I figured you would come up with something cool to do with it"....Ugh, I thanked her, but I honestly have no idea! And I don't send people letters anymore, unless it is email....so, no need to print letters. Hmmm, whats a person to do....

I am with ya on those decorative scissors. I had a couple cheap pairs, but they worked aweful. I love glue sticks, btw. I generally use them only for applying DSP to something.....for everything else I use my ATG.

Hmm, fun thread! I can't think of anything else to add. I am still new at paper crafting. Only been at it for 2 years, so can't really say much of my trends have changed...

You guys are reminding me that I need to get rid of a TON of stuff! I have about 15 decorative scissors sitting on my table right now. Also, a HUGE box of stickers that is taking up space. Oh and the crappy "scrapbook" paper! I should donate it to one of the regular ed. teachers in my building this fall!!

Slide mounts, I always hated them and never used them. The same with bottle caps, although I still see them around some.

Staples always looked so tacky to me. If that's supposed to be artsy, I'll choose fartsy.

Ha! I remember making a few fur cards back in the day..I think I made them to look like a bear or a dog? You had to use alot of hot glue to stick it to the card base which made the base wonky. I held on to my fur scraps for years before I finally tossed them. Glad it passed.

Sometimes staples look just right.

I don't understand using 35,609 embellishments including ribbon, diecuts, chipboard, glitter, jeweles, buttons, etc. all on one card that also includes a stamped, hand-colored image. It seems like overkill to me.

I also don't understand rub-ons, though of course I have them. I'd rather buy the stamp that I can use repeatedly.

Dating myself perhaps, but rub-ons are just fancy transfer type or tape that we used to use on mechanicals in publishing 500 years ago when dinosaurs roamed. Guess what? After x amount of time, they rubbed or peeled off the mechanical.

I have a bunch of slide mounts that I never used, a few brass thingys that you stamp in hot wax to make seals, a bunch of decorative scissors that I could never cut a straight line with, the original quickutz hand tool..I paid good money for that one but didn't use it very often..it's nice for exercising your arms. Now I look at some of this stuff and wonder why did I every buy it.

Hmm, stuff I had to have when it came out. Slide mounts in all the colors. Fibres--mine always looked liked crap when I used them myself. Bottle caps and then I spent a small fortune on some cute designs to glue on them from ebay. Those cute little people that we paper pieced together. I still have my hockey haze that will ocassionally make it on a card for a player. All the patterned paper from the early days.

My first scrapbooks done still bring me joy. I remember how passionate I was about scrapping and those memories are still there for me when I look back. I would not change those pages for anything.

What a fun thread, this definitely had me laughing tonight. I have to cringe at the thought of the cards I made with those decorative scissors. I recently found one of my cards I made using a pair and it looked like C.R.A.P. It also had BUGLE BEADS on it...I used them for CANDLES! Ugh! I would post a picture if I still had it but I let the kids do what they wanted with it. So funny!!

I just did a purge and found... slide mounts - do not ask me why I bought them as I have no idea and they were still all in their original packaging, decorative scissors - way to many to count, fibers - glad to know that I am not the only one whose projects looked like a kindergartener made it, 3 different circle cutters - none of them worked for me or maybe I didn't work for them, more paper than I can shake a stick at - ugh what was I thinking about some of this stuff, paper dolls - so cute then and now ???
I know I had great ideas when I bought the stuff but now... geesh

Funny, I was just thinking about making a card with torn edges. Oh well, I have never been in style. When the rest of the cardmakers changed frm eyelets to brads, I bought all the eyelets really cheap!
