Using My Stash - Chipboard Leftovers

I had some chipboard and rub on leftovers, so I threw them on this card. It's not my best work, but I didn't want to throw away these scraps.  I think it a ribbon between the two words will help to make this a better card.  I'm posting it because I think all work is art. It may not be our favorite piece, but it's still art none the less. So here's to my not to favorite piece of art. Cheers!

Elegant Journal of my co-workers went ahead and decided to take another job at a different company.  Whaaaaat? Now I have to go make new friends.  Oh well.  I made this for her as a going away present and she was so thrilled. She said she wasn't going to write in it, but I made her promise that she would. The paper is from DCWV and the flower is a Lori Whitlock design that I cut out of my Sihlouette Cameo.  I hope you like it!

Using My Stash - Flower Layout

I'm continuing to use up my stash this year. Here's another layout using my SEI paper stash. The flower is made from my Cricut - Art Philosophy cartridge.  I love that cartridge. It's so versatile.

Using My Stash - Thank You Card

After making so many layouts, one is bound to have a few small extra pieces laying around. Those small pieces are never trashed at my house.  I always find a way to work them into a card.

Celebrate Life Today Journal

I made this journal as a Christmas present for a friend at work. She's undergone quite a transformation with her weight and she's finally enjoying life. I thought this would be perfect for her!
The paper is from My Minds Eye. The flower is cut with my Silhouette. I believe the file is from Lori Whitlock, since most of the files I buy seem to be from her designs. I used dew dots for the brown flowers and pearl brads and embellishments. The key and lock were sitting in my drawer, and I can't remember who manufactures them. Oh well.

Using My Stash - Unique Layout

In this edition of "Using My Stash", I'm featuring a layout called Unique. I believe this paper is called Windsor. I love the ribbon in this line. I'm not very impressed with the stick-able embellishments as they seem to be a lot less sticky after two years of sitting in a drawer.

I'm a Fiskater!

I applied to be a Fiskateer last year, and look what came in the mail today.  What a nice pair of scissors! So cool!

Using My Stash - Family Adventure Layout

I'm trying to focus on using up my stash this year, instead of buying new supplies.  I's a lofty goal, but one that can be done! I'm not saying I won't buy ANY new supplies. I'm just trying to use my stash first. This layout is made with SEI paper. It's called Oasis.  In fact, many of my next posts will feature SEI paper. Why? Well...about 2 years ago I put in a big order. When it came in, I put the paper and embellishments all together in kits so that it would be easy to take to crops. Well, crops never came and they sat on a shelf for two years. Now it's time to use them.  Here goes...

Love My Kids Crafty Gals January Challenge

This month's challenge is Anything Goes at the Crafty Gals Blog Group. I thought I'd reign in the new year with a layout about priorities.  My health, my husband, and my kids are my priority. I think this layout says it all.  What are your priorities?
This layout is made with SEI papers and embellishments. I believe the paper is called Windsor, although I can't say for sure.  It's been sitting in my craft room for about 2 years now!
