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

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.

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.
