Stretching your stash

Is it Monday again already? I need more time. Just like I need more digi supplies right?

But hey, designers keep coming out with cool new stuff! Still, there are lots of ways we might not have thought about to maximize our goodies.

Even when I KNOW I have plenty of ‘stuff’ there seem to be times when I wish there were just, something, to make that page really pop. It turns out if I think about what I DO have in a bigger way, I already have everything I need! Check these out:

Now, if I could just find more time as easily…..

 

Happy Scrapping!
