Before we delve into all of the chaos that is the holidays and all the fun, festive things you can make, we’re going to spend this month talking about supplies we already may have!
I think it’s safe to say that we, as crafters, have a tendency to “collect” supplies that we love. Our obsessions may vary, but I’m willing to bet there is an overabundance of something in your crafting area! So this month we’re focusing on destashing our craft space, one product at a time.
For me it’s scrapbook paper. I think the reason I got into scrapbooking years and years ago was for the paper!
And now, though I almost never find the time to scrapbook, I still collect ALL the pretty paper! Luckily paper is pretty versatile so there are SO many things that can be done with! If you happen to be a paper hoarder as well, you may enjoy some of these scrapbook paper destash crafts!
Paper Scrap Cards from Stamp with Jodi
There are so many ways to use your scrapbook paper! And scrapbook paper scraps if, like me, you can’t help yourself but to keep those as well.
Don’t miss our next round of destash ideas next Friday!

What a great collection of ideas! For me it's not just scrapbooking paper although I have way more of that than I'll ever use. It's also card stock, wrapping paper, gift bags, cards, postcards, napkins, paper tapes, art prints, pretty images from magazines & books, pretty calendar prints. pretty anything on paper.. I've saved it all. Oh paper, my beloved paper, the wonderful hours we've spent together sifting, sorting and admiring your colorful beauty. Alas it's time to tone down your volume now that you've grown to big for your boxes, drawers & baskets. Those while ceramic tiles are still waiting for those beautiful post cards picked up while traveling. Those pretty prints saved from that Calendar will find their way into frames and hung with care to display your beauty.. This week. I swear this week! Did you see those beautiful frames above? Wouldn't something like that set you off perfectly? Michelle was so kind to share her idea. I think we should add a string with pretty paper covered clothes pins holding our favorite photos on the wall you'll be gracing also. A gallery of love is what it will be. Oh my paper, my beloved paper, we'll do such wonderful things together and make this world a prettier place. This week, I promise!

Awesome awesome awesome! I have SO much pretty paper, and I was just telling my daughter that she needs to use more of it, because I have more paper than I'll ever use in my lifetime. I have done a few of these ideas, and some are new to me. I'm glad to have so many ideas for paper in one handy spot. Thanks for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things!
