Sam, last year when I did a large purge, I was amazed at the stuff I bought early on - some of it was definitely yuck! However, it all found a new home where it resides happily. I too, have changed how I scrap and it is hard to let go of stuff I have paid for. However, that money is loooonnnnngggg gone and now I'm wasting prime space in my craft room out of a misguided sense of frugality.

It actually feels great to get rid of stuff - the trick is not to run out and spend more to fill the space back up!!!!

Karenliz - I use albums to store my stencils too. I found some dollar priced 6x6 albums that are great for the crafter's workshop stencils. I don't have any 12x12, but I do store my HOTP templates in that sized album and you are right, finding space for everything is a challenge.

Well, now I'm not so sure I can actually do that second part - I can and am getting piles of stuff ready to give away but -- I'm only DOING that so I can get the new stuff, LOL!!!!

Got 2 pairs of pants made into cut-offs today for Jon and Josh. Yeah, two fewer things on my sewing mountain!

I went away this weekend to scrap. While I did complete 58 pages (with journaling!) I did not work with many of my PW supplies. So I have almost nothing to post. I did one small page using the Far East stamp set to create a collage effect.

Goodness! 58 Pages? I'm not sure I've done that many total!
Great use of the far east stamp set, by the way.

Linda, you're a scrapping machine! Lots of pages, and probably so much more since your post! I really find it hard to part with scrapbooking stash but I know that I need to! When I was making my son's birthday card, I used some really old stash & I liked the end result. The tools are stickers which I mounted on cardstock before using.
