why is it that i always want the new paper instead of the stack of paper that is staring back at me on my desk. Okay so I'm trying to scrap and catch up on my summer photos, and I keep seeing pages with EP "little girl" or some BG "wander" ... both lines I do not have. then I start thinking that i can save the photos until i get the paper.

not that i get everything on the market, seriously my budget for scrapbook stuff is like $100 for the year. and its not like i don't have some CC "pixilious" or some travel themed paper that my secret santa gave me or even EP "little boy" ... it's just that wanting what you don't have that's getting me, and stupid marketing. yeah i'm blaming it on marketing!



lol thanks for hearing my rant, now back to the regularly scheduled scrapping (that will of course be using the paper that is already in my stash hee hee)

cuz the paper motivates you to do more. When i see a really good paper I think of all the things i want to do with it. Now I buy as I have a LO to do instead of stocking up for future ideas.

It's better if you can go to some place like Archivers where you can buy the specialty paper one sheet instead of a whole themed stack.

I am the same darned way. I am redoing my scrap room now and the amount of paper I have is astounding. And yet, I keep buying more. I will also tend to use what I just bought while the stuff I got last month just sits there. My mom even mentioned today that I can't buy at a scrap or hobby store without picking up some paper, too! What's a girl to do when these manufacturers keep releasing such cute lines of paper?!?!?

It is Definitely due to marketing. I have to just completely stay out of the paper aisle all together. Unless, I find a great deal like yesterday at M's....40% off paper stacks plus a 25% off coupon good for everything.

i have the same issue. i have so much paper, yet still find myself buying more thinking it would be perfect for a project i never get around to because i buy it, something comes up, and by the time i get to use it i forget what i got it for or can't find it. then, i am back to buying more pp. my goal this year is to break that and use what i have.

It's good to know that I am not alone with the paper "collection"..I have lots and yet still buy more! When shopping I always come across the perfect paper I have to have for the special photo.. Now I have lots and lots of paper for the special photo..
Now to go find that "special" photo to use the perfect paper!

I love paper!! Maybe we buy it more because the stores have such great deals on it making it so much more affordable. It's all their fault!

I am usually in trouble when I see new paper packs...not just a sheet here and there, but a whole pack of pretty stuff!

I LOVE paper...I always have a hard time saying no more. But that hasn't stopped me but what I do do is always use one of my old sheets of paper with a new sheet. I also try to incorporate one of my old embellishments in each layout I do.
