Do you have a particular crafting supply that you seem to collect without even knowing? Suddenly you turn around and find 15 6×6 paper pads, or 20 packages of enamel dots, or set after set of wood veneer pieces.
Personally, I believe that one can never have too many enamel dots!
Wood veneer on the other hand … well, that’s the subject of today’s post.
What’s a girl to do when she’s got too much stuff?!
I recently cleaned out my scrap room, went through every single item in it, and have only returned those items to it that I feel I will use. Really, honest to goodness, put on a card, layout or other paper crafting project. It was incredibly tough to look at a piece of gorgeous patterned paper and say, “no, I’m never going to use this, it’s really not my style anymore, good bye”.
This sort and purge even extended to my Gossamer Blue kit stash. You may or may not have picked up by now that I love my Gossamer Blue kits. I love them so much that until just recently, I’ve kept them all separate from my regular stash. When creating with a new kit, I would go to this stash first if I needed something that the newest kit didn’t contain. As I sorted them I came to the (stupidly hard) decision to put whatever full sheets of patterned paper and card stock were in there into my paper racks with my “regular stash”. I’ve still got my paper scraps separate … for now. We’ll see how long that lasts!
When I went through the embellishments drawer though, I discovered this.
