Apart from actually scrapping going through stash is a good substitute. I find it really inspiring. Recently when I did a layout I found that my cardstock had little rips and notches at the edges. Now, that makes me very unhappy. So I decided the box in which it is kept has to go but what to do instead? Nothing, I decided, I just put the cardstock onto the shelf along with the scraps in pizza boxes and a box of beads to keep it upright.
It's still not perfectly straight though. Do you think I need more cardstock?
I think I do. I can't see any blues! So few yellows and oranges! Hardly no reds! Yes, I think I need some, I really do.
