I have a confession to make .........

It is said that admitting you have a problem is the first step in healing. Therefore, I am admitting I have a Disney Scrapbooking Supply Addiction. I know we do most of our traveling based on Disney. WDW, Disneyland, Disney Cruises, DVC Resorts etc..... And I have been fortunate to be able to travel like that and scrapbook as I do. We dont buy "everything" for scrapbooking , I really do try to remember what I have and use it accordingly. HOWEVER today I was looking for a certain item and stumbled across an entire pack of year specific supplies which were bought for 2008 when we did multiple trips. The problem is I am ALMOST done with my last 2008 book. I have done one trip AND the two books I gave our older grandaughters last year. I know this isnt a huge issue compared to what many others face in their daily lives but I really hate when I make such a dumb mistake. I thought I had looked for and taken out all of the 2008 supplies. Now I will have to see what I can use and go from there. And there will be precious little Disney scrapbook items purchased until I use a WHOLE lot more!

Be glad you aren't in swaps!!!

I am right there with you and not just Disney supplies, it's everything. Easy to justify needing stuff when you have 4 kids to scrap for, who specifically ask for paper albums not digital.
However I finally went through all of my Disney supplies and really took a hard look at what I had and what I could part with. I will use what I have left and I refuse to buy anymore until I use at least 75% of my current product.

I feel your pain. I have the same problem. Granted I have a lot of "old" trips to scrap, but I have lots of year specific paper, how knows if I'll get back that far before dry rot hits. I have a dated 2010 album for DS 1st trip to scrap (not done), 2011 book & guess what? I couldn't pass up the 2012 book in the outlet last month! ROTFL.....I didn't buy the full price 2013 one! Baby steps, right? I have more stickers than I could use to do 100 albums!

I too feel your pain. I was just trying to find a space for more Disney scrap pages and I have realized I am going to need more storage drawers.

We are a bunch of suplly hoarders. i too keep finding this that I thought i had used only to realised that oh wait, it's another set I bought god knows when. Yes I have 4 kids and yes I need 4 kids albums plus mine but I sure don't need 15 of the same page.

I have a small space in the kitchen for scrapbooking that we moved from the basement since the baby was born. I wouldn't bring her there as it's not finished. Yes I've been doing alot scraping lately but I think I would need to scrap years none stop to use everything. I though t doing swaps would help but boy was I wrong. I really have to work on using what I have and stop buying. dh was counthing an if I had bought every piece of paper full price, I would have around $3000 worth of paper. Good thing I only buy when there's a nice sale under $0.22 a pieces.

Ok back to using a bit more of my huge stash and find what I can use for my next swap

My name is Carole and I have a scrapbooking supplies addiction with an emphasis on Disney.

And now that I have said that........ is it right for me to say I can't wait until April for the convention/show to come to town so I can shop some more? I got some REALLY AWESOME Disney stuff last year!

I have a shelving unit in my walk in closet in my scrapbook room just for Disney scrapbooking supplies. If it is Disney related, I must have it!

There are a lot worse problems than having too many scrapbooking supplies and loving all things Disney. At least in my humble opinion.
