Organising Old Stash - I'm Going to Give It Away!

The Giveaway is now CLOSED! Thanks to everyone who entered. The winner will be announced on Thursday 5th July!

I figure one of the main things that will help me sort out my stash storage, is to decrease the amount I need to store! I've collected so many bits over the years that I don't think I'll even use, because they were an impulse buy at the time, or my style has just changed too much since I bought them. 

And I also have duplicates of some things - 6x6 paper pads hold a few sheets of each pattern and I won't ever use all the patterns that much, or when I've received something in a giveaway that I already owned.

There are lots of ways to decrease your stash - by using it up (I let my daughter use up some bits I no longer need), by selling it (I've sold items on Ebay and on UKScrappers), or by giving it away - as a gift to a new scrapper, to a cropping group, or a charity. But today I'm giving away some old stash to you!

I've tried to pick only stuff that you'd actually want to win... for example there's no half used sticker sheets, the papers are all in as-new condition, and as far as I know it's all acid free. Hopefully if you win it you'd be able to put these bit to better use than I:


The old stash kit includes 12x12" papers from DCWV, Heidi Grace, and Basic Grey, 6x6" papers from Bazzill Basics Papers, Prima, and WRMK, Stickers from Glitz Designs and from American Crafts, Rub Ons from Basic Grey, Pockets and Tags by Papermania, and much more!

To enter this giveaway just let me know in the comments that you'd like to win it! 

The giveaway is open until 11.59pm Monday 2nd July {NOW CLOSED}, and is available internationally. Just don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you win, if you're not easily reached via a google account (check you're not set to 'no-reply').

Remember that a comment on this post, or on any of my posts from this weekend, will count as an entry into the Grand Giveaway {NOW CLOSED}- but only if you've registered your interest in winning that here!

See you in an hour for some Sunday Storytelling! x

wooHOO! What a lot of lovely stuff - one womans trash is another woman's treasure as they say....:) My scrappy mates and I have had a couple of "swap shops" in the past - nothing very organised really, we just all put stuff we didn't want on the table and took stuff we did want. Of course, you end up with just as much stuff, but at least you might actually use it! Good luck for another fun day :)

Some pretty awesome things up for grabs! I would love to win!! I do also need to go through my things and see what I really need! The best part is I am at my parents, and getting ready to move again, so the stuff I don't need my mom gets, and she LOVES it!

That is a really nice combination of papers and embellishments. I'm always afraid to give stuff away "in case I might need" that colour. But you are inspiring me to get that stash under control!

Amy said...

If my stash was this lovely, I wouldn't be able to purge. Seriously, you must have some awesome stuff if this is your purge pile!

Julie H said...

Yes I would love the chance to win.

Wow, you really are clearing your desk and I thought I'd been busy this afternoon just reorgansing my craft room.
I haven't even got to the stash yet!
This will be a great prize to win.

Ana Laura said...

Of course I'd LOVE to win LOL
I do the same... when I have some paper or craft material in 'stock' for a time, send a little gift for a friend (crafter too)sometimes I'd like to give more but my budget (?) doesn't let me =(
Thanks

I picked up some "free" papers on Saturday from a fellow cropper - it's nice to be able to pass on "rubbish" to someone who will make better use of it! I'll pass on accepting yours though as I really need to do a clear out of my own - thanks!

Yolanda said...

Oh how nice, would love to win, as others have said one womans trash is anothers treasure :)
