Raise your hand if you have some older stash you feel a little bit guilty about.
There’s just so much stinkin’ cute stuff coming out all the time, you kind of can’t help buying some new things before you get around to using last year’s cute things. And then there are all those things from the year before that, and the year before that…
…which all seem to get less and less cute the longer you have them but don’t use them.
That’s why I started my GRAM list: four ways to use (and get excited about using) your older scrapbook supplies.
And now I have another way!
Lately I’ve fallen love with scrapbooking from manufacturer collections and I’ve noticed that if you scrapbook a lot from collections and kits, you’re even less likely to use the other stuff you’ve bought and stashed away.
So rather than try to steer myself away from the newest dazzling collections winking and smiling at me in order to dutifully use my sour old stash, I decided to use my collections to reinvigorate the old stuff. For about a year or so I’ve been experimenting with a method of moving product through a nice little flow, and now that I know it works, it’s simple, and it’s fun, I’m ready to share!
Izzy and I made a video where we show you a part of my new scraproom and how I set up a way make collections work toward using up older stash. Then I put together a layout to show how it works all the way down to finished pages you’ll love.
And the cool thing is, you don’t have to change the way you organize. If you like to sort by color, by product type, by manufacturer, or whatever, you don’t have to stop that. The only difference will be that by adding this one simple tweak you’ll be moving product much more quickly through your current organizational method, whatever that may be.
And you can still focus on enjoying your newest favorite kits or collections just as much as usual!
