Do you have a wishlist of new stuff to buy, while a whole stash of older scrapbook supplies waits to be used?
Need to use up some of the dated stuff first?
This is one of my specialty topics, so you’re at the right place. I have lots of great tips for using old scrapbook products and I’ve been sharing them with the Paperclipping Members through videos for a long time now. But there is one most important thing that needs to happen first.
You need to do this one thing before you do any of the other tips I love to discover and share.
You need to decide.
You must walk into your scrap space with the decision that you’re going to use a bunch of your lingering stuff.
It sounds simplistic and obvious, but it’s the absence of that decision that leads to the over-sized stash of older stuff we don’t feel inspired to use.
Once you’ve decided, you will LOVE the tips I have to share. You’ll love them because they’ll get you excited to use those older products. You’ll love the way they look on your pages, just as much as you think you’ll love using all those items on your new wishlist.
This week I pulled out some of the very oldest products still lingering in my stash, plus a few that are as new as two years old (two years still feels old when there’s so much that is new, right?) — and I made a page that is one of my current favorites!
Every single item I used are items that have been sitting around for a long time, with the exception of one doily that I got for free with my coffee at breakfast.
I assembled the entire thing, sharing my thoughts and decisions on video for the Paperclipping Members. I also shared at least five new tips for using random old leftovers.
Members can find it in the Member’s Area and on iTunes.

So how much stuff do you have that cost you money and is taking up space? Want to put it to good use and make some gorgeous pages so you can feel better about that wishlist you’re accumulating?
I hope you enjoy the video!!
