This weeks haul


Hello. Last week, stamps and dies. This week, two paper pads, stickers and die cuts. The stickers and die cuts will be used in my planner/smash books/journals. I am determined to get back into them and this new haul will go a long way to helping!

On the subject of paper pads. I have quite a collection of 6x6 pads. Some have only a few sheets left. Some are practically antiques! However, I cannot bring myself to have a clear out - you never know when you might need that exact paper! But, what I was thinking of doing, is taking the sheets out and making one big pile. But then I wouldn't be able to tell people what the paper is called - does that matter? You probably can't get some of it anymore anyway. What do you do?

I have to keep mine in pads so I know what I am using. I do have a sort out of sheets I won't use and sell them. Great haul

Lots of loveliness here! In the end I decided to keep my paper pads together for the purposes of coordinating and matching. I've set myself the challenge of not buying any further pads until I can get them all into one box... I doubt if I'll manage but you never know! Have a great weekend, Jo x

I always write in pencil on the back of my papers where they have come from. If I use some of it I make sure the piece left still has the writing on otherwise I rewrite it. Works for me. This way I don't have yo keep it in pads and can separate into patterns, colours etc. hugs Mrs A.

My 6x6s and 8x8s are just in small crates from the poundshop. I make it a rule to have no left over pieces. I use up the whole sheet on several cards, on the inside of the card or on the envelope. Of couse I break the rule sometimes! At the moment i cannot allow myself to buy paper. I just have too much.
