Use Your Stash! :)

Remember that patterned paper or kit that you just had to have whenever you spotted it on the shelves of your local scrapbook store? I have tons of scrapbooking supplies, some of which will never be used because either: a) I waited so long to use it that it's totally out of date now and lost its luster, or b) I have absolutely no pictures to go with it, but I had to have it because it was so cute!

Digging through my stash this past week, I found a paper line with matching sticker embellishments that I remember grabbing as soon as I saw it at my local store. It was the We R Memory Keepers "Heart Attack" line. I think it's been discontinued already, but still...I loved it then, and I still think it's super cute!

I was able to create these two layouts of my boys using last year's Valentine's pics. I know, I know...I always seem to be at least a year behind in my pics, but oh well. Each page made is a memory preserved, so it doesn't matter in what order the page is made...just as long as it's made. ;)

First up is this page of Aaron and his Valentine Box. He was SO proud of his cute little box he made for his preschool class cards:

Secondly, I had these pics of the boys taken on Valentine's Day. I love them! :)

So, don't give up on the items in your stash...if you still like them, USE THEM...no matter how old or outdated they may be. ;)

Sooo cute! Good for you that you scrapped the photos now. Who ever said that you have to scrap chronologically. I just scrap whatever I am in the mood for! This is the best part about our hobby. Nobody tells us what to do, when and where! Love your work!

I don't think I ever saw that line of paper and embellie goodness, but it is so cute! It worked perfectly for your photos! You don't want to know how far behind I am!
