Practical Scrappers Design Team. I am so honored to join this group of gifted papercrafters and I can't wait to learn the ropes over there and get started!I'm very excited to announce that I have been invited to join the
That said, I imagine that I am not the only papercrafter that has found that particularly in this struggling economy it is necessary to watch every dollar that we spend on our craft/hobby. There was a time that I used to buy lots of papercrafting supplies only for it to end up sitting in containers and drawers, very loved... but very unused nontheless. For me it seemed that the items that I cherished and spent the most money on I ended up being unable to part with by actually using the items for paper projects. I didn't want to waste "the good stuff" just in case I made a mistake. It wasn't until I took Shimelle's Something from Almost Nothing scrapping class that I realized that the real waste was not using the things I already owned to create my layouts, cards and other projects!
This is exactly what makes the Practical Scrappers challenge blog so relevant for me and for crafters like me as well. The whole concept behind Practical Scrappers is to get you to use the stuff you already own! Imagine that! Of course, this doesn't mean that I never buy anything new... on the contrary I still buy plenty and regularly too! But the difference is that I am actually using it... not storing it and for me this means I am not wasting even one dollar when I buy products that I really love! I hope by following along with us at the Practical Scrappers challenge blog you too will be inspired to use what you own and get crafting with all that yummy goodness you have stashed away!
