Five oldies & their last chance
Howdy fellow scrappers!
This, of course, also affected my scrapbooking. I’m seriously fed up with a lot of stuff in my stash that’s been there for ages and not even once has been used. I gave myself an ultimatum; use it or lose it. I did not give myself a deadline (maybe I should have) but I will give each item/group of items one or two proper chances, then they’re out!
So today I’m going to share some stuff I made using no less than FIVE items that’s been in my stash forever, some of them are marked with “use it or lose it” (mentally).
My selected items are:
- Bight colored buttons (not sure why, but I bought them in a mixed bag more than five years ago and never liked them)
- Adhesive bling (small strips from different kits over the years.. be gone!)
- Paper (I have loads of paper.. loads!)
- Wine tag die (barely used this one but it’s actually not that bad)
- Colored stamps and other cut outs (I’m an expert at collecting these)
Maybe not the most exciting cards I’ve made but they are quite pretty.
Ok so, bling. I love it, I really do but mostly to look at. I’m usually not using much bling on my cards or layouts, so why do I keep buying more you might ask? Well, I think I’m a magpie deep inside. I have no other explanation!
I must admit that I’m really fond of these blingy clusters, so pretty!
The paper, wine tag die and cut outs.. Well I cut out a bunch of wine tags from white cardstock just to get started. I decided to use my patterned papers as much as possible so they became backgrounds. I found some fitting colored stamps/cut outs (what should I even call these?) and just put them all together. Pretty nice huh?
I’m so happy that I finally started to use things or get rid of them! It feels so good! I can only see one downside of this… my card stash is not really shrinking… I guess that will be my next problem to take care of…
Next time I’ll be sharing even more stash busters, I’m on a roll!
