I recently moved my craft room around and in the process came across so many pretty things in my stash I haven’t used. I decided enough was enough and gathered it all together to put into a few buckets. I cut all the sticker sheets apart, so that I would be more likely to use pieces if they were not a full nice package! I took each and every piece of chipboard off the backing as well and used my little DIY de-stickering poof (nylon pouch filled with cornstarch) so that they would be ready to use as well. I usually use a glue gun to attach most items so losing the stick wasn’t a big deal to me, it actually helps so that I can lay items on a layout and see if I like them!
I added Ces’t La Vie from Pink Paislee, Shine/Carousel/Bloom/Cute Girl/Chasing Dreams from Crate Paper & Maggie Holmes, Heidi Swapp goodies, 1Canoe2, Felicity Jane, Dear Lizzy and other bits and pieces that matched the colors.
I love having it all together, it will take me a day or two to figure out how to work with the buckets, so far there has been a lot of rummaging! I seem to be more likely to make bits and pieces out of what I have instead of leaving it in the nice packaging!
