Day Two: True Confessions

“Stash Exceeds Life Expectancy”!

Not sure if I saw this on a tee-shirt at a scrapbook convention or a post somewhere, but had to write it down.

Our own SusanB1962 (a featured *guest star* later this week) says this:

I have a confession: I’ve acquired enough journaling spots, pages, tags, cards, blocks, pieces, tablets, etc. to fill more scrapbook pages than I could ever make in my lifetime. If it can hold journaling, I’ve got it. Actually, I’ve probably got several of it. So it’s time to use up all those journaling supplies.

I usually just use one journaling item per page but in these layouts I’ve used several journaling blocks and spots to hold my thoughts.

What’s YOUR supply addiction? Can you wrap your house in ribbons? How many jars of buttons DO you have? Wish your garden grew as well as your stash of flowers?

My challenge today: use it, and lots of it, on a page! – Susan

    Thanks Lisa! And in the time since I wrote this prompt, I started a new “collection”: brads 😉

      Oh brads! Every counterfeit kit I make, I have the objective of using as many brads as I can. The dish never seems to get emptier!! He he. If you get any brainwave ideas for new brad uses, please let me know!!!

I hadn’t thought of that either since I’m a paper scrapbooker. I wish I knew how to digi-scrap and really envy those who do!
I liked Leslie’s suggestion. Is there a particular designer that you’re drawn to?

Good one! I LOVE journaling spots, since I love to journal. I don’t usually use more than one piece, which means I’m usually looking for the largest piece to fit my long winded story. I will be using this idea…more than once!
