      What are some things (papers, embellishments, etc.) that you are hoarding? Why?

        I have this brown felt gate from Prima that I haven’t used. We got it in a kit YEARS ago!

        I also have a lot of old Prima flowers I can’t bear to use.

        I also have K&Co Blue Awning paper, as well as Prima Romantique, and I still have all the GLitz Design Vintage Blue collection.

        What’s wrong with me?

          Omg! I have so much of the stuff you have named and more.

          I have several lines of Maja, 7Dots and older Prima papers that I am hoarding. I do have to say, I try to use the Prima papers by doing their monthly challenge.

          We won’t even get into flowers or embellishments. I have so many Prima resins it’s not funny.

            I’m with you on the prima resins Kim. I have tons!!!! Especially the oval resin frames, (they are my absolute favourite). They are hard to find so I keep buying them when I do find them and then I can’t make myself use them, I have 3 or 4 unopened pkts at the moment.

            I’m ok with papers, I always love the new designs more than old. So I tend to dump my old papers in a big box and let my daughter use them.

              I love chipboard..I could open a store with what I have; and I keep buying more.

              Kim and I tend to shave a hoarding tendency when it comes to flowers; i could scrap for at least 2 years without buying another flower.

                  πŸ™‚ It’s true. I got rid of 4 priority mail boxes FULL of paper before I moved. I still have WAY more than I need.

                      I have tons of old Basic Grey and Prima. I’m with you Bec, I have tons of resin frames I can’t bring myself to use!

                        LOL, Kim, that should be the official Swirly cup!!!!

                        And Rae, that’s a great question.
                        Let’s see…
                        I’m another one who could (in theory) scrap for several years with what I have. But seriously, let’s divide it up.
                        1. Things with a plan – I just never found the time to get to these before the next kit arrived and it all went on my “someday” pile.
                        2. Things without a plan – I saw these, I just had to have them and now I cannot for the life of me remember why. I am seriously trying to use these now, a little at a time, until I can justify buying more.
                        3. Leftovers – bits and pieces left over from my kits. Again, I’m trying to use these up.
                        4. The stuff that I’ll admit to hoarding. I finally let go of my K&Co Blue Awning a while back and gave that away, but there are still papers that need to be used: some Glitz Love Games, Bo Bunny Gabrielle and Timepiece, Prima Fairy Flora… And I’ll confess to a certain Prima vine: I still own 2-1/2 packages and I have sworn to use 1/2 package every other year πŸ™‚

                        A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.

                          Hmmm…I used to hoard flowers and papers and Prima vines and resins. But, a few years ago I decided to just use it! If I didn’t then it would just sit there until it was no longer something “in style” to use. And, I have a lot of that stuff because I just wanted to save that special thing for that special layout.

                            For me I think the MOST I put on my pages always gesso and ColourArte products. I love the products. And with the familly I love Prima Paper.

                              I have tons of Dusty Attic chipboard, and I keep buying. I too have Bo Bunny Gabrielle that I have not used. I hoard Maja, Pion, and 13 arts papers. I also have Prima flowers and resins, as well as some older paper lines. I deserve that cup too.

                                LOL, Kimberly, time to grit your teeth and dig into that pile!!!
                                A lot of us are doing that this year, trying to incorporate a few bits in our projects. You’ve got to be brave and join in!!!! :0

                                  I’ve been pulling out older stuff to put on my projects. It makes me feel better about hoarding! πŸ™‚
