What do you do with Designer Series Paper or Scrapbooking Card stock that’s left over?

For those of us that are Demonstrators with Stampin’ Up! & DSP has retired but still have some left over


you have a collection of printed Cardstock & you are not sure how you are going to use it all.


 you now do Project Life and don’t need all that 12 x 12 card stock.

I have a few ideas…

  1. Sell it on Ebay or sale/swap sites (following the SU Manual)
  2. Give it away to schools or preschools
  3. Give as a gift to young girls (or boys) that love to do crafts
  4. Cut it into 10 x 15cm ( 4 x 6″) pieces to use as Project Life Cards

I have done all of these over the years except for No.4..Project Life Cards, until today.

Over this weekend I have started catching up on getting my photo’s sorted.

Usually I would recommend with starting with the most recent photos as these you can remember the details.

But I’m not taking my own advise here….I have started at 2008.

One of my previous post explains this a little…..

while sorting photo’s for my sons 21st I came across photos that showed a milestone event that happened in out lives.

I ways meant to put them in an album but like most of us I hadn’t got around to it.

Now I’m working on catching up these lost years…which makes for lots of pages to do.

So to get back to the excess card stock……

 I have started my Project Life album from 2008..

so I will need lots of Cards to fill a few gaps.

So I have cut up some of my Card stock (DSP) into 10 x 15cm (4 x 6 “) pieces.


They are there ready to go when I need them…

I have also spent a little bit of time organising my Project Life trolly,

I have taken the lid and placed it behind the base and put a rubber band around them to keep them together.

This allows for extra storage for the Accessories packs you can purchase to go with your cards and keeps them together in families.


In some of box lids where I don’t have the  accesories left I have placed the DSP I have cut.

Its all ready to go..whether I’m working at the dinning room table or in my office…
