  • I have way too much patterned paper because the stuff just makes me happy. WOuld LOVE LOVE to use every bit of it. I wish I had more “special” embellishments like cameos or fancy buttons, etc.

    I have already signed up for this class…but would love to invite a friend. The things I have the most of is eyelets, and I never use them. What I would like more of is buttons or ribbon, love both of these.

  • Ok…so I think I have been a Heidi “virgin” for too long. I knew you were out there. I saw your name on the things I bought. But, did I “really” know who you were..no.
    But, I have been secretly stalking the Ho3 blog for a few months now…even, bought some digi stuff and taught myself to use it (somewhat. lol)…but, last night, I watched your free class. OMG!! so cool, so fun and so freaking hilarious!!! I love how many times you knocked the glue gun off the table. and I LOVE the clear mini you had made and showed us. I am making one this weekend at a crop I am going to.
    Anyhoooooooo I have so many buttons, that I will never use them all in this life time. If you don’t believe me, see if you can find the HUGE jar o’ buttons in this post:
    http://ilovedirtylaundry.blogspot.com/2010/01/girl-cave.html (lol)
    If you would like for me to send you some vintage buttons, just give me a shout. I love to send happy mail.
    So, that is what I have TOO MUCH OF!
    Now, I don’t have enough mist. I have gotten so addicted to misting, that I don’t think I could ever have enough. There are too many colors to buy!!! I want them all. But, I am getting one to two bottles every month. So, I am trying to start a good little collection.
    Thank you for your inspiration!!!

    I have way too many stamps. They seem like they would be perfect for my pages or to make custom papers and embellishments. But I get too lazy sometimes to drag them out.
    What I need more of, other than FINISHED pages, is more Bazzill cardstock. It seems like I can’t keep enough of it around in the right colors.

    I have too many stamps that I don’t use enough. I wish I had more cardstock. I always seem to be low on that. In fact I think it is the only thing I’m ever low on : )

  • Hi there, this is the class for me. I have way too much paper that i love to have because it is so pretty and playful, but i feel it is more of a collection because I I am afraid to use it because I will never be able to get it again. I would like more love notes border paper because I don’t have a single piece and can’t find it anywhere.It is actually the only piece of your paper that i don’t own. just placed another on-line order at AMM for more..Hope I can hide that pkg from hubby!!!
    Thanks for sharing your great projects with us!!

    Oh goodness, where to start on how I have too much of something: if I could link a picture, I would; I have way too many alphabets! Yes! Not just a type of something, its all alphabets. I have containers and containers filled of chipboard alphabet (by of course you!) I have paper kind, rub-on kind, sticker kind, stamping kind, iron-on kind, the list goes on and on.

A few of us are going to gather all our extra’s to donate to a local retirement home for their craft night. I have one bottle of glimmer mist so I will need more for sure.

    I can easily say that I have too many different alphabets. And they are all in separate areas. I’ve got a drawer full and then a couple tool caddy drawer things on my shelf. I probably have more sets of alphabets than I have sheets of paper!

    Wow,I’m lost in patterned paper…..
    haven’t used much but I looooove pretty paper & I always have layouts in mind that I never get to.
    What I’d love is a runner that holds a generous amount of adhesive that doesn’t weigh a ton. I’m tired of collecting runners because I can’t find refills to the ones I have.
    I also have too many:
    *albums waiting for layouts(I’m embarrassed to admit how many) they were just so pretty.
    *Buttons, chipboard, stamps…..
    I could go on & on, but the biggest offender – patterned paper. It’s taken over my room & also made its way into the garage. Help me, help me, please…I’m under here, I promise!

    I have to say as a scrapbooker I have collected many thing over a course of 7 years. If I had to choose as to what I have the most of and never use, it’s my scraps!! I have 7 boxes full of scraps left over from projects and layouts. I for one have learned never to throw away my scraps. I have a system and yes it might sound a little nutty, but I have 7 different boxes that are color coded!! So if I need a piece of blue for that perfect final touch, I dig through the box of blue scraps!! LOL, I have learned real quick even your scraps need a place of their own!! It took me 3 days to short that stuff!! LOL
    Thanks for a chance to win Heidi, and FYI, I watch your show becuase I love to create and be inspired!! The gifts are great to win, but what is most exciting, is taking a weekly class from you!! The HO3 as a whole, has sparked a whole new light in my creativity!!

    I have to admit that I have way too much ribbon. The $1 bin at Michaels gets me every time, and then the 80% off after holidays and then just walking by the ribbon display and one jumps right into my cart. . .How does this happen??? And paper. I think there is an unwritten rule that “she who has the most paper wins” and I’m a good contender for winning. But I’m a bookkeeper and he who has the best paper trail wins so I am looking at a trophy in my future for “best paper collection.” What I am lacking in is hmmmmmmmmmm. . .what am I lacking in. . .I know. . .TIME to STAMP and CREATE and SCRAP. Work just gets in the way of all of that–but it also helps pay for all of that.

  • In my stash there are to many chipboard alphas, ribbon and flowers. I’ve always been afraid I’m going to run out of that one thing when I just need one more! I’m trying to make myself move past this problem ;o)

    I have too much everything, but the one thing I would really like to use up are the 1/2 full sheets of stickers, and not just alphas. I’ve bought stickers that coordinate with a line of papers. Once the papers gone I put those stickers aside and don’t think of them again. I have TONNES of them 🙁
    I wish I had more Thickers. I love them!
    ~ one of the few kinds of stickers I don’t have 1/2 sheets of because if I’ve already used a letter I need I’ll get creative and cut up other letters to piece together the one I’m missing.

  • It would be easier to say what I don’t have enough of, but I bet I could give anyone a run for their money in ribbon….If I were guessing, I have more than 1,000 different spools of ribbon, and a wall full of individual ribbons categorized by color on huge o rings…I bet there’s at least 300 or more yards there…I have enough ribbon to probably get to the moon!

  • I have waaaay too many stamps. My husband says I never emt a stamp I didn’t like and have to buy but that is not true!!! I also have a lot of ribbon, buttons and chipboard. Oh and rub-ons and alpha letters. I am not sure what I need more of. That is not stopping me from buying more new cute stuff when I find things I like and really really think I will have a layout to use it on. Thanks for the chance to win this class! I have been trying to use my stash as much as possible for the last year or so.

    I logged on to your blog today and saw the giveaway for a class on using your stash. I have collected quite a stash that I somehow can’t find the time to use lately. We adopted our daughter from China and currently adopting another sweet girl from China and my time has been limited for scrapbooking. However, my goal for this year was to jump in and start doing what I love (scrapbooking) and start creating memories for my daughters. I need to use my stash and get busy. This class sounds like something I need at this time.
    Love your blog Heidi and love all of your creations!

His reply was simply “Why would you buy just one when you can have one in every color and every style.” What a guy! At that time i had to many eyelets and brads. Now I think it really is ribbon.
