More Funky!!!

I am on a mission............and how many times have you heard!!!
I have promised myself now.......for backsliding.............That I am going to use up some of my obscene amount of stash before I buy anything else. No more papers, no more flowers and no more ribbons.
So I have started on my stash of big blooms and my pack of Dovecraft Retro Floral papers and have made up quite a few cards similar to these. Still a long way to go before they are both used up but at least I have made a start.
For the top card I made the flower embellishment from some of the scraps, Stickles glitter glue and a gem. The chipboard embellishment is an image punched from another scrap and glued onto a chipboard circle. This has also been touched up with glitter and finished with a gem.
Making these has also used up a some of a pile of coloured card blanks I had made up so I have started off quite well. Can I keep it up though? Highly unlikely knowing!!!

Also been having a browse through my BIA projects book. There are some lovely projects and I am keen to have a go at the ribbon storage book which looks fab. I am thinking of doing colour themed books so red paper for red ribbon etc which will hopefully make things easier to find. I sooooo love the BIA and am hoping to add a Dreamcuts to a birthday pressie from hubby hopefully seeing as how I am not supposed to be spending any money.....ha ha ha!!!

I had best go and get some sleep although I am not a bit tired. We have a busy day at the shop tomorrow with an all day workshop so I don't want to be falling asleep in the ink pads.
Night night

  1. Sheila I feel your 'pain' about using all the stash before buying some more. That was one of my new year resolution yet I managed to buy more papers:DCWV 180 sheets pad, K&CO and Brenda Pinncik 200 sheets's totally insane ! Thank you for giving me the inspiration to make a dent on my stash ! LOL I love the cards ! Fab X


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
