More Christmas

 This week finds my desk in the middle of new Christmas photos (technically taken in November '11) and old Christmas paper (circa '07). In my ongoing attempt to use up my paper, I have dragged out some of my once prized *Love,Elsie* paper in the form of this holiday collection, Noel. No longer treasuring something as if it were gold (what? I was poor in '07, Elsie stuff was all I bought all year) means that the current style of randomly cutting and layering until the page looks right is not painful in the slightest.

  2. Well done on continuing to use up your stash, we could all do with a bit of that I think! I'm not big on too many embellishments either, I like the look when other people do it, but it just ends up looking a mess when I try!

  3. Using up paper means you can buy more NEW paper, think of it that way, haha. I like the minimalist layout!

  5. One of my current reorganizing projects is my paper. I have a lot of fabulous stuff that I'd like to use and a lot of not so fabulous stuff to get rid of. I'm tweaking my system a bit and it feels good to have a huge stack of papers to get rid of--even though it makes me a bit sick to know that I PAID for so much of it. On the other hand, I'm going to give it to Kevin's daughter, who has a fairly small selection of stuff to use, so I know that it will still go to good use.

  6. I don't think you want to over-embellish layouts anyway as then all the "stuff" distracts from photos, which should be what the page is about. I applaud your use it up efforts. It must be rather liberating to be able to just USE it.

  9. Thanks for popping by! I love that you are making a concerted effort to use up the sacred stash. I think that we all need to revisit those prized pages after a time and use or purge them! Have a great WOYWW! -Amanda 36
