Using Your Stash

Let's just admit it...most of us probably have a huge stash of scrapbooking supplies. I know I have been "collecting" products for years!!!! :) One of the things I try to challenge myself to do each time I create is to use something - ANYTHING - from my stash.

Another great way to use up your stash and all those scraps laying around is to create cards. I created a set of masculine cards using the new "Office Party" kit and tried to incorporate just a few items from my stash into the cards.

For this first card, I made a quilt block using 1-1/2" squares of patterned paper. The ticket die-cut is from the kit. I grabbed a couple buttons, rub-ons and some twine from my stash.

On this card, I used a Martha Stewart starburst punch and cut the starbursts in half to make banners. The twine, rub-on and rhinestones are all from my stash. 

For this card, I used a label sticker, twine and rub-on from my stash. Everything else came from the kit. 

On this card, I used a button, twine and brad from my stash. 

Be sure and stop by the message board to participate in all the great crop challenges this week! My challenge today is to create two masculine cards and I would love to see what you create! :)
