WOYWW 97

I'm finally able to join in with the best blog hop in town! Join Julia to have a look at what all the fuss is about, and you too can share your craft space with the rest of us.




Today I am working on 2 layouts. Both were for UKS weekly challenge but I'm woefully behind on last weeks so it will just count as a page for mum as opposed to any points.




I have been raiding my stash since i got back to Turkey - cos I cant go out and buy new stock. It is amazing at what I have found in my cardstock boxes, sheets I had completely forgotten about. Some are as old as the hills, lol.

I read someone's blog the other day where she was making room for a new baby and throwing out all the unused & forgotten stash. I just couldnt do that! Partly because i cant replace it but also because whenever I look at the sheets I remember why i bought them. Now i just need a photo and a reason to use them.

what do you have lurking in your stash? Would you share with us and let us peek?

Sometimes it's great to have a look in older boxes. Mostly you find some 'new' inspiring stuff.
Have a crafty WOYWW.

I have too much lurking in my stash. Not to worry, one day I will get around to using it all. Now and then I say "I will use only things I have" and then something else pops up and I have to buy.
Thanks for sharing what you have on your desk and try misting with Pearlex (or similar) some of those sheets, or a bit of distressing always brightens things up.

I've been having a clear out too - I'm accumulating so many magazines, I need to get rid of some older ones really. It's lovely when you find things you'd forgotten about and can use at last!

Have so many unused 12x12s but one day my scrapbooking days will start and I'll enjoy using them up. Thanks for a nosey into yours. Enjoy. Carolxx

Hi Caroline, love the display of paper on your chair. I don't mind having 'old' paper at all, after all, I bought it because it is beautiful and I just know I'll make something lovely with it one day. I certainly could not throw out any - it would be like having my toenails pulled :( Elizabeth x #66

I'm a bit of a hoarder too. I do have papers that I really don't like and I've kept them for a couple of years (may have been part of a set or a kit etc) and so now I am passing them onto my little boy. Glad you are back with your stash and back in the sun :-)

Looks like we both made it back to WOYWW this week. Glad to see you here, too. And speaking of the wonderful magazine you sent, it arrived TODAY. No joke. Got here this afternoon. I was going to let you know before I even opened it, but I simply couldn't wait. And the rocking horse templates in the magazine were the BEST. I really enjoyed it, and totally forgot about everything else, until it was nearly bed time. Thank you again for it. And what serendipitous timing, too.

I'm like you, except I don't have a lot of paper. I use old book pages to make backgrounds. However, anything can be changed using paints, dyes, and shimmers.

My stash fills drawers and cupboards all over the house. The only way it leaves me is when I make something with it!!!

Oh I can't throw out either, even if I don't particularly care for it. Am always afraid I just might wish I had it back because now have thought of a use for it. Love all the papers laid out on your chair. Looks like a great
layout is in the works. #114
