Anyone interested in a little "old scrap product" swap?

I was digging through my supplies for a layout the other day ...
and realised that I still use a lot of older product.

Of course I do love new 'up to the minute supplies'.
.and all the beautiful CHA releases...
and setting foot in a scrap-booking store is always a danger..
but it doesn't change the fact that I still love the old bits and pieces too.

So combine that with my natural 'waste not' personality...
and my ridiculous stockpile of older supplies...
and it triggered a bit of a brainwave.

I wondered if anyone would be interested in swapping a bit of older product with me.
I have put together some parcels of older papers... alphabets and embellishments...
The products are all new and complete in packaging...
however Id happily swap a parcel for whatever you have on hand as excess...
I wouldn't care if it was part packets...random bits or paper offcuts.

I just thought it would be fun to share some of the excess around as well as grow my stash with some fresh new bits and pieces.

Leave me a comment below if you are interested and Ill drop you an email to arrange it.
Fingers crossed someone is just like me and happy to join in.
(I think Ill add to this later and show you some peaks of what I have put together....that way you can see if it would suit you or not.)

Oh and the layout above....
It was just a layout from scraps... using a photo I adored...
I also used some
gorgeous new Heidi products...
paper scraps from my off cut box...
Kasiercraft jewels I've had for eons..
Basic Grey flower from 5 years ago...
rub-on from 10 years ago...
See....I'm not fussy....if it works on my page...I use it.

    Hi Mardi

    Susan McGuire here (smiles1965 from Scrapboxx and Facebook). I would love to join in this idea of swapping some paper craft items with you. Over the week end I could take some photos of what I have and then you could select some items you like after looking at the photos.

    I have lots of papers, brads, ribbons, chipboard shapes, alphabet sets (some full and some partly used), some clear stamp sets and various rub ons. I always love the products you use together so would be curious to see what you are wanting to swap with other people. My email address is j_s_macers@hotmail.com if you want to contact me or send me a message on Facebook. Thanks so much, this might be a lot of fun. Have a fantastic week end xxoo
