Too good to use

Every month I receive a subscription kit from Sarah's Cards.  It's a great way for me to keep up to date with new products and themes going on in the scrapbooking world as we have no craft shop within a 10 mile radius.  So no opportunity to browse.  Sometimes the papers and embellisments are more to my liking than others but I've always used what I have been sent and pleased with the end result. 
However, one came recently and as soon as I opened it, I knew I loved it.  Pretty papers, lovely colours, exactly what I would have chosen if left to my own devices.  But then the dilemma.  Did I have any photos worthy of it?  And so I've been holding onto it.  Looking at it, and sometimes stroking it as one of the papers has little birds that are slightly raised and glossed.  I knew that if I didn't use it soon, it would become one of those things that I loved too much to cut up. 
So browsing around Facebook, I saw a photo of my niece and her daughter and knew that this was the one.
And now I have finally cut up a couple of the papers, I know I'm going to use every last scrap!

I can so relate to that! I'm hoping Shimelle's new class will help me to get over it... But this layout is definitely worthy of the papers xx

Oh well done Deb, even though I use little paper these days, I can still relate to this as I used to be the same with several papers. Funnily enough, digi scrapping has cured me of that, I happily use all my paper supplies ... but, I do get twitchy when I am low on white or kraft cardstock!

I have the same problem but as soon as I use the paper I am so glad I did. I put myself on a paper buying freeze which definitely encourages me to use those pretty papers. The layout looks so nice, glad you used them.
