Hi everyone :)
A few blog posts ago -- I shared that I one of my scrappy goals this year was to de-stash A LOT of my scrappy goodies this year :)
So a few weeks ago I dug into my goal with a bang -- and this week I wanted to share some of the layouts, cards and even a recipe book I made :)
So -- I have this white canvas bin that two years ago, I sorted a lot of scrap goodies into large ziploc baggies (Vintage goodies, Alphas, assorted papers, scraps of other papers I had used parts of, various embellishments, etc....) and the thing is -- I took all this time to sort everything into these large ziploc baggies, and....
I haven't touched the bin since then!!!!!
Seriously!!! I haven't even done ANYTHING with this bin except move it from old house to our new house!!! Never even bothered to pull it out once to actually WORK WITH IT!!!
Here is the infamous bin --
See??!!???!! All nice and organized in nice large ziploc baggies... and then I don't even bother to USE any of it!!! YIKES!! Shame on me!!
So I decided to change that once and for all!! I decided I would just start pulling out whatever I felt like and use it! :)
Here are some of the layouts I made --
And YIKES!! Who remember these resin words from We-R-Memory-Keepers from a MILLION years ago?!?!?!? I just HAD to have them ... and then I never use them??? Silly me!!! Well... no more I say -- totally using it up -- old or new!! :)
And I must ADMIT ... I had a TOTAL LOVE AFFAIR with these Jenni Bowlin alphas I used as my background ... soooooo much of a love affair that I have like EIGHT SHEETS of them!!!!! What!?!?!?!?!?!? Serious sickness I tell you!! So as mentioned above ... I decided to make some of them into my background (and I used the numbers from one of the sticker sheets on the above layout!) ... so between these two layouts ... I used up one entire sheet of my beloved Jenni Bowlin stickers!!! GO ME!!! Only 7 more sheets to use up!! LOL :)
The rub ons on here are really old ones from Basic Grey and 7gypsies!!! :)
This next one -- using some really old goodies!! :) Like I couldn't even tell you who the alphas are from... that's how old they are! LOL :)
Ok... that is day one of my week of de-stashing!! I will be back tomorrow to share more!!! And at the end of the week... I will be sharing what's LEFT OVER from my white bin of neglected goodies!!!! :)
