I've been using nuvo drops like crazy! I never had the correct color of enamel dots for projects, but now that I can make my own I use them all the time.

Stencils. Always had problems with keeping them flat on paper so ink didn’t get under or moving slightly and messing up image. But then I got a Wendy Vecchi creastation thingie with the magnets. Wow. Game changer. That thing is amazing and now I use stencils all the time on my cards

ME TOO!!!!  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them!  And for the same reason you mentioned!  :)

I've also discovered hand stitching on my layouts.  When I saw how easy it was I was hooked!  I ordered two big collections on Amazon and literally created a monster!  It took me about a week to get them all wound on the plastic boards and sorted into the 7 boxes of embroidery floss that I had to buy to fit them all!!!  LOLOL!  I don't sew on every layout but when I have the time and patience and it will make it look better I will make the time.

I'm using more cutfiles and inks (Vicki Boutin is the best). I bought a new Cricut so I can use the Design Studio and also get free downloads from lots of places. I also have purchased a lot and now have them downloaded on my computer. I love how they can change your page. Not only do I use them, I also sometimes back my cutfiles with PP or I may just ink them. I'm having so much fun.

Challenges! Lol after taking such a long haitus from scrapping (loosing a loved one, and then, my mind- I had to have a breakdown and then rebuild a new life) ... I'm healthy now and healed (mostly) and since last year I have been scrapping with a vengeance!

Challenges! I never seemed to do many challenges before, but this past year, since finding ACOT, I've been loving all these challenges! I really have been outside my comfort zone a few times, which I find is GREAT for growth and development! And I mean, scrappy growth and development! I've been inspired to try new techniques and ideas and color palettes and I gotta say, I can't believe I took such a long break from this lovely hobby but I've got "fresh" eyes now!
I've been making page kits and scrap kits and having a blast! Mixing my old supplies with my new ones, grabbing some scissors and adhesive, checking out the forums here... These are my daily respites again and I'm so grateful!

I am so very sorry for your loss and for all you have been through. I am praying for you as you continue with your new life and I am grateful you have found ACOT and been scrapping again. ( hugs)

I have been BUYING tons of stamp sets from friends that sell CTMH and Stampin Up, plus have had a 2 year subscription to Stamps of Life.
BUT, I rarely take the time to use any of them, mostly because my room is still way too crowded and I have very little work spaace.
Sounds like I have a great New Years Resolution!

I love stamps too AND have a very limited workspace right now! Totally feeling you on that!
By the way, I've never heard of Stamps of Life but I'm getting ready to Google! 😂

I'm REALLY wanting a digital printer! I bought some cut files on here (already cut lol) and haven't used them yet but you've inspired me. I've seen people back then with PP, but JUST inking them?! THAT sounds cool!
