A Stack of Brown Cardstock Scraps

This entry is part 7 of 37 in the series Minimalist Scrapbooking

Each Friday, I write a post about Minimalist Scrapbooking.

Oh, what a lovely layout. Do you see the stickers in the lower left corner? I am almost positive that I bought those the first year I worked in a scrapbook store (that would be 2003). But today, I am not writing about how old my letter stickers are. The most ridiculous item on my page is that brown cardstock. I made my wedding invitations with that brown cardstock. I needed 12×12 in order to cut out cards, but the excess measured 5×12. I couldn’t just throw out all that beautiful paper. Look at it:

Now, my confession…

I was married in 2005.

Sadly, that is not the worst part.

I have moved this paper not once, not twice, but four times. And that my friends, is why I am taking the minimalist scrapbooking challenge.

What about you? What item in your stash haunts you or taunts you unused?

  • I just heard a bit of good news on the Paperclipping Roundtable. I am looking forward to next week’s episode.  🙂 

  • OMG! I haven’t listened yet! But I am so looking forward to next week’s episode, too! 🙂

  • Hey, I just discovered cardmaking!  This is the way I am going to use my scraps.  Only have to purchase envelopes and you make cards from scraps… you’d be surprised how creative you’ll become and how thrifty you feel.

    I made 170 all-occasioned cards in a matter of three days.  Thinking of starting a club!

  • I do make some cards, not many, but some. Sometimes I don’t even bother with an envelope if the card is going with a gift. Thanks for commenting!

  • Wow, 170 cards! I do make some cards. Sometimes I don’t include an envelope if the card is going with a gift, then you’re even thriftier! 🙂
