A week of de-stashing -- day three!! :)

Hi everyone!

For 5 days -- I am sharing a story on how I have taken just one bin that had some of my scrappy stash in it and what I accomplished with that one bin of scrap goodies!!!


Here is the bin that I am de-stashing!! :)



 
And here are some more layouts that I made using ONLY the goodies in the bin above :)



Who remembers all those die-cut shaped papers?!?!!? I swear I must have had a HUGE scrappy crush on them... cuz I found a TON of them in my bin!! LOL! :) 

 













This next one I created my own background -- I had these chipboard alphas that were HORRIBLE (and nooooo I won't tell you what company they are from! LOL!!) -- anyhoo... I didn't have too many alphas let on the chipboard sheet -- so I threw the actual alphas away and then used the chipboard base as a mask for this layout :)











Ok... that is day three 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!!!! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Wow, I love the way you put it all together. It all looks as though it went together instead of just being in a stash.

Love seeing what you are doing with these oldies but goodies xx

~Tammy~ said...

Seriously older things does not mean dated and you have totally displayed that here! I am a hoarder when it comes to things like this because I have paid good money for product and even though I can't get through what's "in" in the time it was released....it still makes beautiful projects!

Staci said...

Excellent layouts!! You are so moving through that stuff!!!
