I'm trying to use up my old papers...are you? :)



15 Jan 2011

I don't know about you but I'm furiously trying to use up my old papers (okay 2010 papers) to make way for new ones...*LOL* The "one in, one out" system works well for me....less clutter and hoarding. :) What about you?

This layout features my nephews and Lily Bee papers, utilizing the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and inspired by the challenge at Scrap the Boys to document a specific moment in time.

A little fussy cutting and layering of embellishments.

I upcycled a sock hanger here...:)

P/s: I went totally off-grid this past weekend so I'll be making my blog visits today!:) Don't forget about my guest Debbie's embossing and sanding challenge....I would love for you to play along! :)

*Edited* This layout was a fave on Sketchy Thursdays! :)

I think there is only so many ways they can change patterned papers.... I love the lines you used just as much as I did when they came out....great papers never go outta style! I bought 4 older papers lines this weekend...2008-09 Heidi Swapp and GCD for $5 a piece!!! It was still a score...mixing them can be a fun challenge! :) Great Layout !!!

What, I'm suppose to use my papers? Nah. Hoarding is much better. Love that you used a hanger in your page... great way to think outside the box.

I admit, I am a hoarder, but seeing this beautiful layout makes me want to rethink it! Love the colors!

Oh my, just a little fussy cutting??? What a great feel to this one - all those tropical flowers look so good. Plus, you throw in a sock hanger?!!! You truly are the upcycling queen :>) I hope to use up some of my 2010 paper purchases when I make something for your latest guest designer challenge. I know I have some coredinations paper that I bought last year.

Lovely creation....love the dp and the upcycled hanger

AshKuku said...

Loved it all.... Brilliantly used the old DP, but for me OLD or NEW, I still have a hard time using them..... Running scissors through them is like a crime I commit.... Result no space... ;)

Karuna said...

lisa said...

Wow Yvonne, this page is amazing!!!
Really stunning. I'm terrible at just using my 'now' papers these days. I need to have a good sort through my kit bags again. I knd of feel like I have no idea of what I actually have any more x

RiNNE said...

Very cool! I tend to hoard my most favorite papers though :).

Dora said...

I do that to so once in a while...but never had a stunning result as you did here!

vasu said...

Jocelyn said...

YAY...using up your papers and this one is just PERFECT!!! Love how you used the sock hanger!!! What a great idea!!!!

Wishing you a Fabulous week!!!

Heather said...

This is so pretty! I am definitely trying to use up my old paper and not buy too much new, I try not to even look at paper much so I won't want to buy it. I have a whole store in style cube(about 18 inches wide) full of patterned paper. I did finally do the fancy pants flower shaped mixed media album with the delight line that I bought I don't know how long ago, probably about 2 years ago.

~amy~ said...

YOU are soooo clever with the sock hanger....LOL...LOVE it. The layout is fab...gotta love the blue/red combo!

corrie said...

I totally LOVE this! These were some of my favorite papers from last year. Way to go using your stash. i should work on that too!

Theresa said...

this is so fun. i love the colors. I have that paper in my stash too. I like your idea to use up old stash. I'm on a paper freeze. it's gonna be hard.
happy monday!!!! =)

I need a 12 step program for my paper addiction. I have in my possession about 35 6x6 paper pads that need to be used and yet I continue to get new ones. (4 last week) HELP!!!

Love the layout.

Alice Wertz said...

i should definitely try to use up my old paper.... they are growing!! =) fun fun layout as always, Yvonne!!

laterg8r said...

love the use of the hanger and the twine frame - so whimsical :D

~Tammy~ said...

Hoarder, why yes I am! I think mine comes from not having enough time to use all those lovies I have bought! I really have to stop buying new...but but but they are soooo pretty! Anywho! LOVE this adorable layout, and you make scrapbooking look easy! :-)

Diana Fisher said...
