Using Stash

Hi everyone, is it really the 1st? Where has the summer gone??? Or should I say where has the year gone?! The kids will back at school later this week and as much as I'm going to miss them, I'm secretly looking forward to some organised chaos in my life again.

Anyway, on with todays project...............................

The paper I've used in this project was from sugar and spice, one of many fab papers I own, and like many crafters, have problems using, because for some reason we just collect them, feel the embossing and glitter, and can't possibly use them. So from today I've decided to start using my stash because there is always more to collect.

I love dimension on a layout and I felt I managed to do this without making the project too bulky.

On the plain background, I used two flower stamps from Happy Birthday Flower clear stamps. The solid daisy stamp gave a great effect on the bazzill card. I then overlaid some flowers that were punched from the patterned paper.

By adding some ribbon, buttons and some doodling, layout completed.

Bye for now and happy crafting


  1. Love these littl stamps. I agree you end up with sooooo much stash that you are afraid to use. Then you do, and end up with this great LO.

  2. Gorgeous LO Paula - has a very tranquil feel to it :) Totally on the same page about having stash that you never use 'cos it's toooo nice and it's scary to cut into it.

  3. This is lovely - seriously you can't beat Best Creation papers, they are to die for.....

  4. This is gorgeous Paula! love the layout and the colours are FAB! love it all!
    Nice one!

  5. Beautiful colours! I love the ink colour :)

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
