Fell in love with a new line of paper, ordered it and then months later, realized you already had it??? I am embarrassed! I have done this twice.

Yes, I know the feeling well. Not only do I have duplicate papers and embellies, but books too! At least they were only thin paperback books--more like booklets--instead of expensive hardbacks. I have resorted to inventorying all my scrappy stuff and do not put a new purchase away before getting it on the list. That has helped tremendously.

Not paper bot stamps, yes more than once. In fact I have two distressed snow flakes sets by TH now. Guess I will give one away. Geeze! And I keep an inventory!

Not paper here either but I've done it with embellishments.

I think we've all done that. I know I have--with paper, paints, embellies, and a host of other things. I've even duplicated several Cricut cartridges. Oh well. I know I'll never run out of supplies!

Not by accident, but for sure on purpose with a few paper lines I love! I know all too well how much it sucks to love a paper line and then it's gone for good when you want to order more....

I have done it with stamps and embellishments. At least you are consistent with what you like.

Paper for sure. And apparently dresses for my 2 year old. Sigh. 2nd time in the last few months. Another bad hobby of mine is clothes for the girls obviously LOL

Not necessarily with paper, but my daughter jokes that her scrap room is well-stocked with my duplicate purchases! Even with my very detailed index book, I still find myself falling in love with something when I'm without my book, getting it home, and when I go to enter it into my book, discover it's already there!
