LOL...guilty!  I used to buy tons of baby stuff, but I find myself not using it much, even though there are relatives with babies, because most of the photos have adults in them, as well.  I also buy way too much school-related stuff.  I don't do many layouts of me teaching and I don't really have time to take photos of my students. smh  

I seriously need to do a supply purge and get down to only the things I will use!

I love fall colors too.  I'm in the same boat with that one.  Not too many hot cocoa and sweater days in La. 

I have a ton of Christmas.  The problem with the Christmas collections I have, they do not match my photos.  I have traditional red and green Christmas photos.  I have no idea where these companies come up with these shades for Christmas.

We used to do this cool swap (before postage got outrageous) where one person started a box and put new supplies in it that she wouldn't use.  Then, she mailed it to the next person on the list, who would take out anything they wanted to use and put in new stuff from their stash that wasn't useful to them. It made its rounds and we all got some really nice, useful stuff. Plus, we got to purge our stash. Of course, we had some basic rules about what could go into it (no half-used items or non-scrappy supplies, etc.)  At the end, there were some really ugly papers that got donated to a school somewhere. lol

Would anybody be interested in doing this?  I could organize it. We could use a Flat Rate Priority box to keep the cost down. :)

Swapping was always fun...I remember doing this in the past along with other types of swaps.

Oh goodness yes.  I have purchased the last four of Paige Evans collections and have used very little of any of it!  I have stopped buying Halloween stuff and am finally down to a reasonable stash.  I donated over 50lbs of stuff to the Daycare by grandkids go to :)  I tend to buy for photos but it takes me so long to get to those photos, I forget and then buy new stuff... good lord!

Yep guilty here!!!

I looooove fall - and snow collections!!! of course growing up in Wisconsin I grew up with having those seasons. Full seasons.
I moved from there long ago and in southeast Missouri many years we get no fall colors from being too dry, or too rainy. Sometimes we get some fall. Mostly do not get much snow. There have been some snowstorms and oh how I love them. But mostly we get ice- ugh!
I used to always loooove halloween papers. But the kids are grown and now I have grands but they are babies yet. I have enough to scrap my kids and them for some time!
I do love the doggo collections! I will always have doggies. Lol

I have way too many tropical and beach collections. We sometimes take beach vacations but not nearly enough to every use all the product in that category. Especially since my kids are no longer small and I take a lot less of those sorts of photos.

Not really anymore. I used to pick up quite a few of the Graphic 45 lines after getting absolutely giddy over them. Then, I would end up staring at them almost in horror. I've given them all away as RAKs, and no longer purchase them. Even though . . . sometimes . . . :greenwinka:
I wish people came with a thirty second trailer so I can see what I'm getting myself into.

My collections are insane when it comes to Christmas or any other holiday really.  And if it says Echo Park or Carta Bella you can be sure I most likely have it!

I've never met a Fall Collection that I didn't love!!  Since I usually host Thanksgiving, many of them can be used for that holiday.
