What do rhinestones, doilies and die-cuts dogs have in common? They're my "plus one" on my first page made using my October Counterfeit Kit, "Eclectic Pizza Plus One".
I seem to have made a few puppy-related pages lately, and possibly a few more to come . . .
The papers on this page are a mix of Basic Grey "Konichiwa" and Echo Park "Everyday Eclectic". As I told you in my last post, the "Everyday Eclectic" collection was my latest purchase. I seem to be having a bit of a love-hate relationship with the whole idea of paper collections lately. The love part is how easy it is to put them together to make a page you know will match. The hate part (although hate is too strong a word, more like don't like quite so much) is when you look back on those pages, it is soooo obvious that they were made with that one collection. The other don't like so much part is that when you're trying to limit the size of your stash, 12 papers (or 18 or whatever) from the same collection doesn't seem to provide quite the same variety in your stash as the same number of papers from a range of collections would.
So the question I'm asking you today is:
What do you think is the magic number of papers to have in your stash? Enough that you've got an inspiring range of designs and colours that mean you're ready to sit down and create at a moment's notice? But not so much that you're drowning in a sea of paper that you know you're never going to use?
Have you found that "sweet spot" yet? If not, where are you on the journey?
I look forward to hearing what you've got to say, and maybe we'll talk more about it later! Until then, I hope you find time to create this weekend!
PS. I'm also linking this page up to the Scrapbooking Soiree at Jennifer's Jumbles, so if you're visiting from there, I'd love to hear what you've got to say, too!
