Reveal day has arrived. Lovely Kate at Liberty Cottage organised a fun blog hop, for scrappers or cardmakers, and we were challenged to use old stash purchased before 2007. Well, seeing as I've been off the cardmaking scene for a couple of years and only started again in December (just in time for Christmas) then virtually everything I have fits into this category.
I had a lot of fun going through what seems like an enormous amount of stash which had been abandoned in my cupboard for so long. I rediscovered stamps, papers, ribbons, eyelets, stencils, lace templates, decoupage papers, a couple of Glitter Girls embossing boards, boxes of card blanks plus lots of card, vellum, peel-off stickers, etc.
Here is what I eventually decided to do:
A 5" x 7" card blank has been covered with a sheet of paper from a writing pad bought on a holiday in 2006, bought with card making rather than letter writing in mind. The Penny Black stamp I've probably had for about five years and the sentiment stamp was bought at the same time as I thought it went perfectly with it. The check backing paper behind the stamp is from a 12" x 12" book of scrapbook papers I bought from the QVC outlet shop and the purple card for the mat from a card stock pack I bought from QVC again about five years ago. The ribbon and lace were bought locally when I made my first Bookatrix baby congrats card in 2006.
