I love the mixed bag...ephemera type packs that often come out with paper collections these days... they are full of gorgeous bits and pieces that just fill a spot.
Jot Magazine issue 10 was to ...
"create a layout using as many pieces from a ephemera pack as possible"
So I took a Maggie Holmes pack and filled my layout with lots of gorgeous pieces..
I hate trying to remember where and what collection all the little pieces came from...
it makes writing a supplies list a nightmare once all the pieces are emptied into the bowls on my desk... but then I had a light-bulb moment...I began saving all the back of packs and clipped them onto a ring and now I have easy reference on hand when I need it.
(Yeah....everyone probably does that already....but it was an epiphany for me)
I also keep the front of packs...
They make the best little disposable paint trays!
Can you tell I hate waste.
