This post is a reminder to myself about the different products that I have collected over the years and haven't used. I've been spending a lot of time organizing and purging my scrap room. It is easy to hoard cute stuff, but at the end of the day if it isn't being used - it needs to go!
Buttons: I've got jars and jars of them, but I never ever use them. Buttons=dust collectors.
Mini album kits: It pains me that I spent $30-$50 on mini album kits. I have one that hasn't even been touched (purchased 2009). I decided to take the kit apart and use the supplies separately. I DO NOT DO MINI ALBUMS!! There is never enough room for photos. I am a 4x6 girl.
Page kits: Along the same line, I have purchased many page kits because I loved the theme etc., but the truth is, I like to do my own thing and it is harder for me to make stuff within a the limits of a pre-made page kit.
Mists: Luckily I don't have a lot, but the ones I do have are barely used.
Patterned Paper: Must.Stop.Buying. unless it is for a very specific project.
Large stamps: The kind where you have to have a special contraption (still in package) to use them.
Single image punches: An owl, a rabbit, a snowflake, a circle, a square.... never use. I do use my border punches though.
I am sure this list will continue to be updated. For now, I must remember what not to buy!

Today is my cousin's bridal shower, but sadly it is too far away for me to attend since I will also be traveling for the wedding. I sent her a towel cake with her choice of towels and a matching card. She is living in Alberta, Canada so the top of the cake has a cut out of the province behind the bride and groom. I tried to match her wedding colors - coral, pink and mint green. This was so much fun to put together. The best part was stumbling across a mint green spatula!

Jar stamps seem to be super popular right now. You can fill them with tiny image stamps. I was inspired to cut jars from my Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge and see what I could fill them with. Here are a few of my designs.
