use it or lose it...

...its true in Yoga...if you don't use your body to its full potential...you quickly lose that potential...and its now true in the craftroom...if i've not used it...i'm chucking it/passing it on/or popping it on ebay! these quick card makes were an example of this process in action...i had had this 6X6 K&Co paper pad sitting around forever...and so i decided to use it up in a mass card making session!



the card on the right here uses Hels' sketch again...and the rest are just bosh, bosh, bosh cards! but now i have a draw full of ready to go cards rather than unloved paper and embellies...much happier with that!




i bet you've got a few papers and bits and bobs sitting around that could do with using up, eh? lol and it does feel good to have some cards ready...before crisis time! ;)

I'm with you on the 'use it or lose it' thing. If I buy stash now it has to be for a specific project rather than just buying to store it! Love the Tim Holtz stamp on the last two cards.Thanks for sharing x

Hope you have a good weekend

What wonderful cards.

I saw a scraproom the other day on YouTube, which scared the life out of me - she had so much stash, she couldn't possibly ever use even a third of it! .. So I'm with you, on the use it or lose it.
