Goodbye, huge (I mean huge...probably 10" tall) stack of patterned papers I don't use but thought I would some day. If you've been scrapbooking a long time, you'll know how old some of these papers are - KI Memories Disco, Lipstick, Eye Candy...Ali Edwards' Two Busy Moms...and then there are some pretty new ones that just aren't my style. It's time to purge.
Hello, newly organized and sorted pretty papers. Papers that I know I'll use. When I looked at my papers I realized 99% of them fit into a category...so I sorted them that way - Ledger/Lined, Vintage, Floral, Dot, Stripe, Plaid/Check. Then there are those that I know by brand name - Sassafras Lass, Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, Scenic Route, October Afternoon, Jenni Bowlin...all with their own little section. Doesn't really look like a lot in this photo, but there are lots of papers here. Definitely not as many as I'm getting rid of. But it feels SO good to have this done! I don't see any reason to have a huge stack of anything that I won't use. All of these papers are going with me to the scrapbooking retreat next weekend and will be donated in stacks to the silent charity auction with all proceeds going to Open My World. So, all of you retreat paper hoarders....this stack is coming at you next weekend! (along with bags of chipboard, rub-ons, alpha stickers, and rubber stamps)
