Using My Stash

I have been using lots and lots of my scrapbooking stash lately. You know, the paper you bought months ago that you just HAD to have...but haven't used yet. I rediscovered these papers from Cosmo Cricket and haven't been able to put them down. The colors are just so bright and fun. Makes me wish it was summer! And I ordered these stamps from Papertrey Ink a few months ago and finally took them out of the package. Yeah for my stash!!


Yes, i'm still addicted to banners. I have no idea why. And my love of baker's twine and stick pins is in full display on this card. And some cute little clothespins I found in the depths of my scrapping supplies.


One more card using the Cosmo paper...


I found those bling strawberries in my stash and just had to use them. I love the bright colors and that ruffled ribbon is also some of my favorite. I think that is the last few inches of it!


I stamped the sentiment last on this card. After the card was aaaaaall put together...and I don't really like it. I think the paper is too busy to read the sentiment but it was already done and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Hopefully nobody thinks it say So Sweaty of you. Ha ha!!!

This week is supposed to be nice around here...will hit the 80's by the end of the week. Yeah! Maybe summer IS just around the corner. Thanks for stopping by today, friends!

I love these cards, Mara! I think the sentiment on the second one looks perfect- goes with the strawberries. that card makes me want to go have a picnic (and yay to warmer weather coming- i'm excited about that, too!)

The first card is so bright and happy! I love all the details in the second card... and I read, "So Sweet" in the title :)
Thanks for sharing your talent!!!

My neighbor told me that it's going to be 90F on Thursady... sounds like a good day for a swim!

Hey Mara! I was thinking about you this morning, wondering how the 'boot' was going and if you were close to getting it off yet. ADORABLE cards! Just adorable! Love banners, stick pins and bakers twine too! :-)

So cute! I just finished a major scrapbooking project and towards the end would not allow myself to buy anything and instead used up a lot of my stash.

Fantabulous cards Mara! Great job!

Such bright and beautiful cards.

Love them! I am definitely going to be pulling out that paper now! And the 80's? You lucky girl. We are still in the 30's/40's. But this is chicago and you are in california so I guess that makes sense!

Belinda said...

So sweet! Loving them! And yay for using your stash!
