Quick & Easy/Using My Stash



With tomorrow being Father's Day I need to replenish my basket of cards at the tea shop. Hopefully all the Father's Day cards will have sold:) Since birthday cards are always good sellers, I'll put in those 5 Bazzill Chip Topper cards (June 12th post). I will also put in these two cards. Quick & Easy! I made these with two DCWV card bases, QK balloons and present slide, scrap grossgrain ribbon, and rub-ons. Not the best cards in the world, but I am thrilled to have used up the last of these sets of cards. I want to clean up my little craft room, but I can't seem to part with anything (I am such a hoarder.) See, I have things I don't necessarily like (like the card base on the left), but when I use it to make a card it feels so rewarding. I've sold 166 cards to date from that little basket, all using scraps and stash. I'm trying desperately not to buy more stuff. I've barely made a dent in all that stuff. Scary, huh? But I really like the new Stampin' Up! stuff other bloggers are using, like the three for you flower punch, those gorgeous new cs colors, and those Baroque Motif stamps. I don't have room! I need Oprah to come in and have Nate re-do this little room...

these are adorable. and the best part is even if you aren't thrilled with the card base on the one i guarantee its just what someone else is lookin for! and isn't it fabulous to use up some stuff.
