The One with the Epic Scrapbook Purge of 2013

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

There's going to be a weight limit with how much stuff we can bring to Germany. I think my scrapbook supplies alone would take up most of our weight allotment! Therefore, it's time to PURGE (again...)! Anything that I haven't used that has been in my stash longer than 4 months is going! That means about 90% is going, going, gone! There are even brand new things that I know I'm not going to use from the latest CHA releases. Hopefully my "trash" is your "treasure" because I'm doing flat-rate goodie boxes again :)

Here's how they came together:
First, I went through all my stuff and did the main purging.
 Oodles and oodles of patterned paper and layered stickers!

Hundreds of packs of Thickers! 
 Then I divided the patterned paper into piles to begin the boxes. There are brands like American Crafts, Crate Paper, Studio Calico, Hambly, Pebbles, Jillibean Soup, Jenni Bowlin, Basic Grey - all the bigwigs!
Then I piled on the Thickers. 
 Next, I cleared off the table and started again with piles of embellishments, stamps, doilies, ribbon, and more more more! 
Lastly, I took a picture of the contents of every single kit, here are JUST A FEW of them:
- at least (25) sheets of whole patterned paper and/or cardstock plus about a dozen sheets that are missing bits and pieces
- (4) packs of Thickers (1 is whole, the rest may or may not have letters missing) 
- (1) stamp set (from a brand like American Crafts, Basic Grey, Heidi Swap, Close To My Heart, etc.) 
- a transparency (may have bits missing) from Hambly (I wish they were still around, so these are now retired and hard to find!)
- a stack of doilies
- a dash of Elle's Studio die cuts
- (1) ribbon spool 
- a big handful of flower/chipboard embellishments
- stickers, stickers, and more stickers!

I'm selling each box'o'goodies for $40 - that includes priority shipping!
