I don't think that there's any scrapper on this thing called earth that does NOT collect supplies! I have to confess that I have probably supplies for the rest of my life. The only thing I would have to buy is probably adhesive and blades for my trimmer and x-acto. At Let's Scrap Betty Anne started a group called Let's Scrap our Stash. So a great opportunity to get rid of some of my stash and right away save some money by not buying all the new supplies that came at the market after the last CHA.
I did quite some pages with older supplies, some felt like they were antique and I came to the conclusion that even though you are using older supplies the pages do not look outdated at all simply because of the scrapbooking style you have. So I will definetely try to keep it up and use up some of my older supplies.
I guess not having all the big or even small craft or scrapbooking stores helps in the process. I do not know what I could do if I had a Micheals, Jo-Anns or Hobby Lobby in my area.
This layout is made with supplies I had. The pic was taken when DD Jinte was lying inthe incubator in the Neonatology ICU when she was born. She stayed there for a little over three days to make sure she did not have any side effects of the medication I was using during the pregnancy. She did great and had no severe problems. Not visible on this phot are all the tubes and wires that she was connected to. I can still see DS Jorams' face, he did not like that at all.
