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.

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!

Did you know there's an iphone app that helps you track your stash?

I've never duplicated anything except Copic markers, and that was only because the light was a kind of blueish colour in the warehouse. That was when I downloaded the My Copics app. I haven't needed any other tracker. Yet...

I have an inventory too, and I have it where I can take it with me. But I still have made a duplicate purchase or two. Then there are paper lines I line so well I do buy it twice on purpose. That is hoarding. I am a hoarder, I don't try to deny it.

I've bought more than one pack of something I really, really love, especially if it's seasonal. I didn't like any of last year's Christmas lines but 2 years before, I fell in love with everything. This Christmas had better be good because I'm running out! The autumn things too - on the rare occasion when purple is included in the fall lines, I stock up.

It's only hoarding if you never use it.

Hmm...does rolling around on the paper and petting it and admiring it and promising it you'll never ever cut it up and carefully putting it back on the shelf count as "using"?

Yup, that's what happens. I love purple but it only really appears in Hallowe'en lines, and then not every year. Purple and grey I never seem to have enough of.

And Gin, I have some papers that I had to buy two of. One to use and one to drool over. But roll on? No, never. Just stroke gently with head on one side and a misty look in my eyes. Cough***Bo Bunny's Autumn Song***cough

Drool...Autumn Song... I can't even do anything with the extras I got of that 'cause it's too perishing gorgeous. I even got extra extras of that in hopes that I could do something, anything, with just one of the papers. You might be misty eyed whilst petting yours~I'm hunched over, turned away and keeping watch out of the corner of my eye while I possessively stroke mine! Don't even think of getting near me!

Purple and black Kaisercraft papers? I've looked and couldn't find them~and I might need them...
