Shopping Our Stash #31- Soft as a Snowflake


  This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is "Soft as a snowflake."  Think:   Flower Soft, felt, snowflake stamps, papers, bubble stickers, puffy embellishments, flocking, fun flock, fabric flowers,..as long as it has something "soft" on it and/or an element of snow (snowmen, snowflakes, snowy scenes) - it works!

My take on the "soft" challenge is mulberry paper.
  This year for Christmas I ordered small calendars from ritzcamera.com for some of our friends and relatives.  They are ~4"x4", so they easily fit in an A2 envelope.  Sending the calendar alone in an envelope seemed too impersonal, but I didn't want to wrap each calendar nor did I want to make another Christmas card to send with it.  I opted for making these tags.

  I made this set of 4 tags completely from scraps!  I love that :)
The navy linen card stock, white mulberry paper, silver mirror paper, Impress indigo blue ink, and the EKSuccess fibers have been in my stash for 10-12 years.  The SU stamp and coordinating punch have been around for a few years, but I think I had only used it once before now.  The newest stash (months old)    is the Twinery "denim" twine and my Cricut cartridge "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More."  I cut the tag @ 4".

  Link your "soft" project at Shopping Our Stash...I can't wait to see what you make!

Happy Tuesday!

June, You are so inspirational. I really need to get a handle on my scraps. I wanted to tell you I purged an entire drawer. I know it's small, but it's a start right?? I donated all of it to the goodwill. Feels good, and now I have a drawer specifically for Christmas paper that WAS sitting on the floor:)
Thank you for your updates, the room looks great!
