I was scrapping with friends at my house on Saturday. I actually ended up pulling out and using two really old (like 6+ years old) supplies that hadn't even been opened before.

One was arrow Heidi Swapp journal spots. They were orange and are like shaped post-its. The other supply were Ting-a-Ling brads. They had little hash marks on the top. Both supplies were perfect for a layout of my nephew.

I'm going to have to get the page scanned so I can upload it. It always feels good to finish up a package of something, but it felt great just opening up something I had sitting here for so long. If I weren't scrapping at home, they'd still be sitting unopened.

Way to Go!! I scrap alot at my friends house. We schedule every month and make it a girls weekend sleep over. I agree with you, if I'm not at home scrapping, I overlook my older product.

That is awesome! I've been using up a lot of older supplies and it feels so good. I even used some Making Memories rub-ons from probably 8 or 9 years ago the other day!

For so long I hoard things waiting for the perfect layout- It just clicked one day that all layouts are perfect. It feels good to use old stash and when I show my scrappy friends they're amazed that the old stuff looks great mixed with new stuff!

I've been trying to use my old supplies, too. It's a great feeling to use up and finish off a pack out of my stash.

My pages are always a mix of old and new. It's the only way I can justify my vast stash.

It's a great feeling to pull out an old friend -- and it feels even better to actually use it!

Haha...this reminds me of when I used some old Mrs. Grossman stickers on a card layout for my nephew's birthday. He loved the dinos!!!!

I try to add at least one old supply to each layout.
It's my goal to get up to 50% old on them in the near future
