Explore The Old Town.

I am on a mission to use up my old stash at the moment, all those papers that I don't love quite so much anymore but am unwilling to just throw away! All those half (or less!) sheets of paper that I've tucked back into my paper storage and the products I've purchased and never used!
I see all the lovely modern papers and fall in love with them and know I must hold back on buying anything new until I have made some headway into the old stash.
So I am searching out the old papers for my projects first and using them one last time before recycling the leftovers. This way when there is a new paper line I just can't live without I won't be feeling quite so guilty about buying it!
The papers I used on this double page are by Scenic Route and there was little of it left after I had finished so in the recycling the scraps went without a guilty pang at all!
The inspiration for the right hand page came from the first layout sketch reveal for August at Sketch N Scrap.
Here is sketch #62 designed by the wonderful Lisa Hidy.
Here is the page up close and personnel with just a little tweak on the placement of my photo's.
Ibiza town is a mix of modern buildings and stunning picture postcard old world charm. This layout shows some of the quaint cobbled streets leading up to the castle that overlooks the harbor.
And now for some close-ups.

I hope I have not only inspired you to use up some of your older stash but to hop over to Sketch N Scrap and play along with this month's sketch's.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Your pages are great...I love that 2pager. I know how you feel. Lately I still find myself buying the Teresa Collins lines...but I must use up my stash.

  2. Beautiful layout! Doesn't it feel good to use up some of that stash?! I've been working on my stash for a while now and still have a long way to go. I loved Scenic Route and still have some of their papers in my stash. Maybe I'll challenge myself to pull them out and get them used in August!

  3. Lovely two page layout!! The colors are so fun and it is always nice to use up stash!!

  4. I love the bright color combination! It works great with your summer photos!
