Stash buster extraordinaire

I have been making a card for my nieces birthday. I am trying to make all my cards this year and use some stash. I read this blog which suggested you spend some time going through your stash because you forget what you have. I was on the point of ordering some gelatos to play with when I remembered seeing my cheap box of pastels from the Works instead. So I used them and spent no money! Yay!
Here's the cards. One for Abi and another, just because I was on a roll.

Walter is introducing them I found some Gorjuss decoupage and toppers, some acetate wings from Crafty Individuals I bought eons ago, some black ribbon from a past Craft fare and some stickers from an ancient QVC TSV. I have also decided to use stash for making envelope liners and decorating the envelopes. Still If I live till I am 100, I will never get through it all. Tomorrow I will do a layout using some papers stuffed in a box.
It was a couple of hours well spent, as I recalled some purchases and fads in my OMG 12 years I think of crafting.
Catcha later.


  1. Ha ha - I am another who will never use up all her stash!!. I do get really excited when i use old stuff up though :)
    Gorgeous cards.

  3. These are terrific cards. I also don't have any chance of using up all my stash even though I share it with my 10 year old Grandaughter. Mind you now that my 4 year old Grandaughter has discovered my craft room this might change lol. Having seen how many peel offs she managed to get on one card yesterday lol. Lainie xx
