I am starting my very first series on my YouTube channel called Use it or Lose it. I have been working my tail off trying to get set up so that I can’t fail in the endeavor! Ok, I don’t know that I can actually prevent myself from failing, but I have been working on it now for about 2 – 3 weeks and have kept at it to the point where I have several videos on reserve. Yep…you see where I am going with this right?!
The idea behind the series is that I have so many products that I really love, but as soon or soon after I get new products in, those products make their way deeper into my stash to the point where they are “lost” and by the time they are found, I no longer love them. I recently placed an order at ACOT (ACherryOnTop.com) containing several collection packs and paper pads from the most recent CHA. It’s a pre-order so I won’t see those supplies until March or April. I figured this would be the best time to put together a pack of supplies that I am loving or would like to use up before that order arrives.
The pack of supplies included 2 paper pads (Documentary by Dear Lizzy and Finder’s Keepers by Amy Tan) and 3 collection packs by Echo Park (We are Family and the 2 Capture Life collections). These collections had either never been opened or were hardly used. The rest of the supplies are just a random variety of embellishments either from kits or just items I had purchased over time.
The next step in the process was to create page kits. I created 11 page kits with photos, journaling, paper and in some cases there were embellishments. This makes it easier when I go to create because a lot of the more difficult guess work (for me anyway) is taken care of.
I am really excited about this series and would love it if you played along!
Here is the first video in my series explaining what it’s all about.
