Layout 1 of 50...

Have you ever done a stash diet? This is my first time. I need some space in my scrapping room. Like seriously! The room is tiny as it is (I can reach the opposite walls at the same time if I stretch out my arms - in either direction) and I simply have no space left. So a stash diet it is.

Maybe some of you are wondering what this is? Basically you set yourself a goal. Either X months in the future or X amount of layouts. During this time you are not allowed to buy any new stash. Apart from glue of course. If you run out of that, you can never reach your target LOL! So my goal is to make 50 layouts (!) before I can buy anything again. I do have one exception to the rule though: I am allowed to buy the new Elsie stuff which I have been waiting for for months :)

*waves to Marja* (who I'm doing this together with) No cheating Marja - I'm keeping an eye on you!! LOL! ;)

How long is this going to take me? I have no idea. But I have made progress. I have just finished my second layout for the day and here is "layout 1 of 50" (not had chance to photograph the second one yet). The baby is my brother's little baby girl.

And I had some questions:

Kara - If you look in previous posts, you can see the inside of the minibook you asked about.

Ligiane Panosso - The swirl stamp you asked about is by Banana Frog.

Fab page Anso! I need to get my act together as I've done half a LO so far. Might go check out a sketch site as I'm feeling uninspired at the moment. Those animal stamps are cute. I saw them on the AMLT site and nearly got them and now I wish I had. Maybe I'll ask for them for Xmas as a stocking stuffer.

I need a stash diet where I get RID of stuff I haven't used in last 12 months . . . I tend to buy something & use that & the older stock just sits there & I keep adding to it . . . . sad isn't it !!!! NOT !!! luv it . . . .!!! Margaret

Ooh, I love those stamps, I have them too.

I am supposed to be on both kinds of diets. I am currently eating chocolate and I just ordered some Crate Paper in the sale. Things are not going well.

I did however resist the new Love, Elsie at 2peas, which is unheard of. I think I may be ill.

how cute is that page, lovely, I did a destash last month, it was hard but you are right it has to be done, good luck.
Thanks so much for answering my question, I probably will annoyu asking so many as I love to learn.
Love the little book I read all your posts from september yesterday and it was fab.
Can I ask do you do this as just a hobby ?

I'm very tempted to follow your lead and take on the challenge...could also do with a kick in the food diet direction too! Anyway, no backing out, I'll go with your 50 layouts and hopefully will be able to stick to it.
