So, what do you do? You've donated some of your stash; and you still have plenty of stuff left. You give some away to friends and new scrapbookers; you still have plenty of stuff left. You sell from your personal stash; and buy more while you are at the sale. Now you have even more. The cycle continues. So what about using from your stash? I now you have read and heard all of this before. Seriously, you obviously were in love with the stuff when you purchased it, so use it. When I was preparing for the yard sale, I noticed that a lot of the things I put on the sales table were the "special" items that were just waiting for that special photo. Come on now, you know exactly what I mean. Those special die cuts, ribbon and buttons that you purchased for a special occasion. When the occasion came and you had the pictures, you said "this stuff is to pretty to use for this". Yep, I knew I was not the only one.
Below is a layout created from my Christmas Stash and scraps. All of this stuff is at least 5 or more years old.
Buffy's first Christmas
The pink hearts, the green strip are scraps. The blue snowflake mat is from an old Creative Memories gift I got form a Christmas CM crop. The tag is from the dollar bin.
I can't even tell you how old the snowflakes are. I just know they are KandCompany.
The small matted journal blocks are from my scrap bag too.
Guess What??? I have a goody bag put together just for you. What are you doing with your stash?
