WOYWW 137

 And welcome to my desk this Wednesday, hosted by Playschool. Hehe. Not really, but I've a lot of toys on my desk today. The Chipmunks have joined me officially now for my scrapping, Alvin and Theodore arriving just today. Simon has been here since the eleventh and I LOVE him being here. My Little Ponies have also joined me. I'm going to attempt to fashion them helmets and armour so they look like they're warriors in the game Skyrim. It has been drawn a lot, but it's also been done in real life, so I'm excited to try. I used to be good at sculpting when I was a kid, so I'm hoping my skills haven't atrophied. You can see the decapitated Fluttershy bottom right. 

On my desk proper you can see I'm in the middle of a layout. Lots of matting, the coordinating die cuts, and a little journalling spot, and I called it good. Yes, this is about as much mess as I make.
 Here's the final layout, all pretty and whatnot. Figured I'd post it here so everyone could see it properly.
 And now I need you guys to congratulate me. I used up a whole paper collection! I had one tiny 2 inch piece left over after doing this layout and the one previous and I've officially used up all of this MME Holly Jolly collection. Yay! I'm totally hoping to use up as much paper as I can this year, thin out the herd as it were, so this makes me way excited. I have SO much paper, not as much as some, but I really need to get it under control. I've also had my lovely husband change my Paypal password to try to curb my random spending. The Scrapbook Expo is Feb 25th and I'm going to do *everything* I can to not buy anything until then. I have PLENTY to play with, I need to use what I have, and THIS is the first step! One collection down.... maybe 50 more to go.

Thanks everyone for stopping by, and thanks Julia for hosting such a fun little adventure. Can't wait to see what y'all are up to!

  1. O love that you managed to use up that paper.
    I am trying to shop my stash too. It is amazing what we can create without even needing to spend anything at all!

  2. Congrats on beginning to save and for finishing one set of papers. Way to go. I'm not a scrapbooker, but that sounds like a feat. What struck me when I saw your desk were all those pens. I fell in LOVE. I have none! Happy WOYWW from #1.

  6. Thank you for sharing a bit of your world with us WOYWWers this morning! I hope you have a wonderful week. Great layouts, well done on actually using up some paper! I have tonnes of the stuff and am convinced it multiplies when I turn my back as I can't remember buying so much!

  10. Always great to use up a set of paper. I'm doing that with paper that I buy now--trying my best to do at least a few layouts before I add it into my stash. Love the pictures of Viggo opening his gifts!

  13. How radical to get your hubby to change your password. That was brave! I am trying to work my way through piles of papers as well, and have come across stuff I really like..

  14. That is very ambitious of you to try to use up your stash of paper AND not buy more. Having more paper than a store is always on my mind and I do use it all the time and things feel naked without designer paper on them but that doesn't stop me from buying more too.

    Great layouts, btw, and how sweet that you include your dog in the holiday festivities.

  16. I do congratulate you, and encourage you to go on...there really is no feeling like using stuff up once you're over the initial gulp...it makes you feel smug!! And then there's the feeling of a JUSTIFIED splurge at convention, you will enjoy it so much more! Meanwhile, like the Christmas LO...hope you don't have angst over finding twiggy presses every year!

  17. YOu have such an organised desk! I am impressed with your pen storage. I ~love~ the idea of My Little Pony Skyrim warriors - I'd love to see a photo when you've made them. :)

  19. I wouldn't be leaving those pesky chipmunks unattended on your desk like that, they'll cause all kinds of havoc, especially that Alvin. Isn't he the trouble maker?? And you have a purple ATG! When did they start making purple ones!

    Hugs
