I am seriously... I mean seriously trying to cut down on some of my stash, I've got way way way too much. I can honestly say that having this much stash has hindered my creativity. There's so much, that I don't know where to start or what to use. So, one of my self imposed challenges are to use older supplies for next 30 days to see how much I can use up! Which will mean that I may have no clue as to who some of the used product is by. I started this on Feb 18th.. so I've got until March 18th to put a huge dent in some of this stuff! Wish me luck!
Both layouts are for my moms album. Looking at these pictures tugged on my heart some. On the backs of the originals, my Grandmother (my Mama, pronounced Mamaw)had written who & where on them. Just seeing her so familiar handwriting took me back in time to sweet memories!
This layout was created using a few bits from my Little Black Dress January kit. I didn't use to much from it, only paper and the die cut. Background page is by My Minds Eye-Laundry Line collection. Love it!
Basic Grey- Curio collection small flowers.
Stampin Up- Journey stamp, punch, bigz flower die, & cardstock
Sizzix Round-A-Bout number dies
Tim Holtz tissue tape
Now this next layout... I used all kinds of scrap goodness on it!
You see my beloved Webster's Pages as the background paper.

Now check this out. This accordion flower was actually a cupcake liner. I cut the bottom out and instant flower! Thanks so much to Melissa for sending me the how to on this baby! I'd share it... but can't find the link. I'll keep looking, but it's really pretty simple. You just cut a slit up one side, cut off the bottom round part, then start adhering the cupcake liner to a round piece of cardstock. Just play with it, after you've gotten it, I promise it'll bring a smile to your face. I also got some white ones...can you say Glimmer Mist?
