Use It or Lose It ... A Birthday Layout

I can only share where part of these products come from that make up my layout.  Maybe you know? 

My Little is 5 years old now and growing up faster each day.

I have stashes of paper I no longer know what company made them.  I still love them, but I know that I need to use as much as I can. 
  • Makes room for the fresh stuff.  
  • The danger of not using what you have now, is it goes "out of style."  That makes it difficult to motivate yourself to use the early products when you are so eager to move on with new styles, techniques and ideas.
  • I end up donating it (which is not bad, but I bought it for a reason), sell it or let it sit right where it is stored.  
My challenge to you:  dig it out, use the old and new mixed together and make room for the new, best and brightest products!

Let me see if I can remember some of the products.
Cardstock:  American Crafts
Butterflies:  Graphic 45
Sticker letters:  Webster's Pages
Prima flowers and buttons
Little heart I think is from My Minds Eye
No idea who produced the paper, the "artsy life," or calendar.

Got a guess? 

Create Memories / Pass Them on


Gratitude List
1.  friends, friends, friends
2.  another great year of life
3.  learning and the world it opens up to me
4.  little faces that remind why I love all that is around me
5.  My heavenly Father


  1. Pretty page and very girly. Tim Holtz? maybe or Recollections or 7 gypsies?? Does that help LOL?? Sorry.

    1. I rarely buy Recollection and probably never their paper. Tim Holtz on the calendar maybe. It's been awhile for 7 gypsies and probably never paper but maybe some of the other embellishments.

  2. I have not a clue but love your page and your passion to use what you have!

    1. Thanks Connie. I love my new stuff, but I really have to bring down my pile of old...if I don't use it I know I will end up losing it. LOL
