Using Up Vintage Stash!

By "vintage stash" I actually mean some of the products that have been sitting in my storage for far too long! Spurred on by my use of the 7 Gypsies gaffer tape which had been languishing in my tapes draw for several years I decided that I needed to use up some more older stash on this album as well as using my new Project Life stash and the Simple Stories "Say Cheese" which I have ear marked to use once it arrives!

This layout uses some very old My Minds Eye papers from their 29th Street Market range circa 2007 ish I think (so older than my youngest child!) along with a slightly newer script background paper also from My Minds Eye.


I also used some of my trim collection add to the layout. I am dreadful for acquiring ribbons and trims and never using it! I don't like faffing about sticking it down but I do find that I am better now I use the red terrifically tape to adhere it so it actually stays where I put it!

I'm not sure if it was the pleasure of creating just because I wanted to, because the photos reminded me of one of my favourite moments on our holiday or even because my scrap desk is clear for the first time in forever but I really enjoyed myself scrapping this last night.

  1. Beautiful layout and well done on using older stash. Its lovely to use the new stuff as soon as it arrives, but its also great finding these little gems when you have a good hunt around.

  2. I decided to use up some of my hoard of old stash recently and managed to fill a whole scrapbook album!! It was very satisfying, but I still have so much ribbon so will take your advice and use the red terrifically tape. Your layout is beautiful x
