Scrap Amnesia - when you see a patterned paper, that you absolutely love, you buy it, & discover you already have 2 pieces at home!

Please tell me I'm not the only one!

I bought a really cute Florida themed embellishment pack to scrap a kit. When I was pulling together all my supplies I found the identical pack in a pile of supplies. Luckily we're going to Florida for Spring break

Better a piece of ppaper than an entire set of stamps! Not that I would be familiar with that...

How about making the same type of layout (ie. same photos / same story) twice? I've done that more than once!

YES! All the time.

Which is sometimes a good thing when I need to a two-page LO.

I thought that was just my Momnesia acting up!! I have totally scrapped a similar layout twice, bought multiples of paper or embellishments and forgot what I was going to scrap when I got to use certain papers.

But hey if you like it enough to buy it multiple times you can probably think of multiple ways to use it!!

That is why the "order history" function is useful! I can't tell you how many times I've put the same paper, stamps, embellies, in my cart and then realized I already had them! Now, if I could only remember where I put them!

Ohhh, I am NOTORIOUS for that.. I can't tell you how many times I have bought something twice. It seems like I do it on a regular, and its not like I have this giant scrap room either yea I have a decent amount of things but you would think I have a house full with the way I forget.. That or just a bad case of CRS lol.. I recently just bought a second AT yes please 6x6 pad TWICE! Because I forgot I ordered it from another place! Good thing is ill use them! I'm trying to get better about looking before I shop... But who has the time for that!

Consider it confirmation of your good taste.

I've been a dilettante, but I'm thinking of dabbling in something else.

I was just putting away in CD case all my new stamps sets. I just bought about 10 sets for the big ELake place. I realized I bought 4 different Tim Holtz sets twice. And I still look at them and think I don't have that set. I guess I really like them.

I haven't even used any of them yet.

Last time I went through my stash, I found a few times when I'd purchased 2... and sometimes 3 of the same pattern paper.
