    I have an enormous stash that I haven't used yet because I am just getting started digi scrapping. I got a little excited about all the fun stuff out there and went just a little crazy buying a ton of kits. But I'm sure I'll use them all eventually....

    I find that I mix and match elements from different kits to make several different layouts. So, in a way I use them more than once or twice, but I'd say I use the kit all together on only one or two layouts.

    With most, I am content with doing 1 layout, but there are some kits that I find myself returning to over and over, whether for papers, elements, or alphas. Now that I'm "mostly" organized with ACDSee, I find that I don't usually use "only" one kit in a LO, whereas before I was kida forced to stay within one (due to not knowing where to find anything! ).
    But I probably haven't used about 90% of what I have.
    Even digitally, I'm a packrat.

  4. I usually make one page, but find different elements that I use over and over again.

    As Many As I Can

    I always look for kits I can use over & over again and mix & match with the others I have.
    I like to alter the items givem a twist to give a little pop to my pics

    I usually get 1 - 2 full pages but I'm also a lover of taking a bit from this kit and a bit from that kit and just mixing and matching. So I probably end up with more that just 1-2 in the end.

    I totally agree with the others when they say that with 1 page I have got my moneys worth. To see the look on my DHs face or hear my mum on the phone when she receives her stash of pages I make for her is well worth every penny.

    I do 1-2 per kit, but as said earlier some kits can be used over and over again. :)

    I'm with you on this, Kim I read a quote somewhere from a seamstress - people were giving her a hard time about all the fabric she was collecting and never using. Her reply was "I just like to look at it. I don't see what the problem is - stamp collectors collect stamps all the time and never send them!"

    Count me in as a collector! Although, I've found myself here lately using more and more of my stash and actually thinking before I buy something. I also have several kits that I use over and over again & I have several sets of solid papers that I really go to again and again.

    So, here's my answer: All of the above!
