When I'm putting in something that is not acid free, like newspaper articles, I use Krylon's Make It Acid Free Spray, about $15.00 for a large can. I have to get it special ordered now, because Michael's, JoAnn's don't carry it and Hobby Lobby only has the small cans.

I use a wide variety of things from many places. I use CM, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Michael's, Big Lots, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn Fabrics, Christmas Tree Shop, Ebay, bought items from yard sales,Meijers,etc. The most important thing is just making sure whatever your using is acid free so you can have your work, espically the pictures for years to come. I have even printed clip art type pictures from online, cut out little things out of magazines, etc.

Michaels thought Martha had a large loyal scrapbooking base of shoppers. They were surprised to find her stuff rarely sells. Her punches sell the rest of her stuff hmm not so much. And you are right Bea she is too pricey.

Michaels is doing a reset on Scrapbooking so there are some great deals in clearance right now. Also they are going to shrink their Martha Stewart section so one third of it will be on clearance over the next few weeks

I have some online favorites: scrapbook.com, scrapbuck.com, tumblebeast.com, and scrapyourtrip.com. If I searching and can't find what I want EBay is a place to look. If I am shopping in my community I head for Michaels, Hobby Lobby JoAnns, Archivers and local Scrapbooking Stores. It depends on my budget, my project and my mood. Watch for sales, coupons and deals to make the hobby more affordable but don't give up quality for price. I want my memory books to be there for my grandchildren to look at so that means I want embellies that will last, paper that won't fade and stickers that will stick to the page. :) sometimes cheap is just that cheap quality. on the other hand my local Big Lots sometimes has Jolees for $1.00 and Cricut Cartridges for $30.00 so keep an eye out for the Deals!!

My favorite places are Michaels, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics. All 3 usually have weekly sales/coupons too! I also shop/crop at a local scrapbook store.

I must say I have found some great stuff at the local Dollar Stores but Hobby Lobby might be my fav! Every few weeks they seem to run ads for %off. Love the big slabs of paper!!

I have found things online that are free to print out and then if I want to make them into stickers I have the Xyron X and another Xyron that I can put them in to make them into stickers. I have also found background papers, and you can get fonts and clip art for free and I have also used coloring pages for diecuts. I have also taken letters from magazines and pictures and sprayed them with Krylon's Make It Acid Free to use on pages. I have picked up CM albums, stamps and other things for really cheap at the Goodwill and Salvation Army stores in my area. On Saturdays, most of our Salvy's run the color of the week for 49 cents from 1-5 and one of ours does it from 4-8 on Saturdays. I did pick up a CM album last week for 65 cents, complete with pages. I also get silk flowers that are small enough and flat enough to used on cards and pages from there.

I love to scrap! Or i should just admit only started scrapbooking when i had my daughter. And i would rather use material which is going to last on the page and can look just as new years later once filed in your scrapbook. If you go online and shop at 'the warehouse' very affordable for good products. But if you're looking at kits then google kits and you'll be amazed at how little you can pay and end up changing the layout to suit your taste. Is there an area on this page where we can upload our scrap pages?

If you have a scrapbook store (not Michael's or AC Moore) that is a good place to go. Since there is not one by me, & I don't like the card stock paper quality for making my cards I order online from Pebbles in my Pocket. Their cardstock is heavier & stands up better. That is a personal choice though.

I use CTMH products, as I am a consultant (15 years). I like the papers, embellishments, stamps, etc. But I also scout out Michaels and Joanns and use my coupons. I just hate to buy anything at retail price!! there are lots of options to get your supplies...once you get the groove going you find how just how many there are!!

I get my scrapbooking items from ALL over. Michael's is okay but I prefer Hobby Lobby if you have those in your area. Hobby Lobby rotates sales on kits, paper, utility items, bags, storage, etc. I also purchase a great deal of my scrapbooking items from specialty stores. These are stores that specialize in Scrapbooking. A little more pricey than stores such as Michael's or Hobby Lobby but the ideas and just certain specialty items that can not be found in your regular craft stores. However, most specialty stores in my area have online deals and in store deals that give you a substantial discount if you sign up for their newsletter. The local one for me gives coupons such as 40%-60% off any item or 20% off your entire purchase. They also have an inhouse deal that when you sign up for the newsletter that when you spend $200 (not in one visit) you get X amount off your next purchase.

for sure check walmart and hobby lobby first, they have super cute stuff. sometimes the dollar stores will have some cute things and of course... for cheap. i dont know if you do, but around where i live theres a few stores of just scarpbooking stuff. be careful about what albums u buy though, some are just crap and will fall apart. from experience, i think it's best to just suck it up and buy the creative memorys albums. there really nice. i think theyre worth it- if you're going to spend the time to do the pages, why not put them in something thats going to last?

I love Close to my Heart and have the BEST lady. Also for less expensive stuff Oriental trader has tones of scrap stuff. The paper isn't the best but the brads and stuff are a great price.

I get alot of my stuff at the local dollar stores i was surprised to see that some of them have a good selection of embellishments and they dont cost you but a dollar. if you have them try the dollar tree or dollar daze.

Scrapbookers.com has some great stuff. You have to be careful because you can really add up an order though.

Most of our scrapbook stuff comes ordered from GErmany or the USA and sell in craft shops. This makes it extreamly expensive! So most of the time we try to create "stuff" ourselves from what we've got!

I love the stuff that I get from close to my heart. I think it is great quality when it comes to paper and page protectors. But stickers and embellishments I just get cheap at Walmart, hobby lobby (during the sales) and where ever else I find stuff. my favorite thing to use is ribbon when they have ribbon on sale for like 23cents. or old pieces of fabric from kaleighs halloween costumes. I also will use pieces of pictures that Kaleigh colors during arts and crafts.

Target usually has good stuff right next to the greeting card section. Then theres micheals, or any craft store in your area. Christmas tree shop usually has some good stuff too.
