Love -- featuring MME and Basic Grey :)

Hi everyone! :)
I wanted to share a layout I made with some older MME and Basic Grey papers, along with some Pretty Little Studios and Prima Flowers :)








And I wanted to share an update too -- 

In February I shared that this is the year that I was going to de-stash :)  I had sorted through all my papers, organized them by Theme VS. Manufacturer -- and also organized my embellishments :)

Well -- if you haven't noticed, I haven't been sharing a TON on here - but I have been creating up a storm here at home, I just haven't been sharing them all :) 


I have a few coffee mugs in my craft room that are for functional use, instead of coffee use (since I don't drink it! LOL!) -- and I have been saving the strips from the bottom of the papers to share exactly HOW many papers I have used up since I made this decision in February! :)





SEE!!?!? I have been creating like crazy!! :)  These are all the papers I have used since February -- and I hope that by the end of this year, I will have at least 2 more mugs full of paper strips! :)



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

  1. I love this layout! So sweet! I love all the pink...and Brookie looks so lovely in that photo!

    P/s: If I had that many paper strips it would mean I've used up my stash! You go girl! I have a long way to go...lol

  8. Julie this page is just too beautiful. Adore the vintage feel to it and of course the little subject is just so adorable. What a wonderful idea re the name strips of the papers you have used. You are one tough lady not drinking coffee. Well done.

  11. Omgosh, those mugs of paper strips! That is amazing! What a great idea to save them like that, just so you can see how much you really have been using up. Must feel SO good! And I adore this layout! So sweet and nostalgic, between the older papers and that sweet photo of little Brookie. That BG lace paper was one of my all-time favorites. Love the big circle of it that you used here, and the vintage touches of flowers and photo corners. Really beautiful!
