'Old skool stash scrap' Blog hop




I decided to join in with the 'old skool stash scrap'

Now Jammy from Liberty Cottage challenged us to use our old stash,to make a card of scrapbook page. Old skool meaning that we had for over 2 years. Being fairly new to card making ( April 09 ) and a complete none starter with my Scrapbooking this stumped me abit. Another criteria was that we could use those special papers we bought, then loved too much to use. **Bingo ** This bit i could manage.

Back in February 09 i had bought a full set of Once Upon a Time by DCWV. This included 12x12 papers, 6x4 mat stack, chipboard sticker stack and ribbons. I often looked at this beautiful range, admired its beauty, then popped it back in my storage container. I just knew that it may break my heart to cut it up.





Well here it is my Once Upon a Time card.
I used the text page from the much loved stash and i even managed to pop out one of the chipboard stickers and use that also.

Thats my tale of my old skool stash. As you are following a trail theres other ladies who want to share with you their stories of much stroked papers and stash saved up from when Tony Blair was in number 10 Downing Street.
Thankyou for stopping by :O) xx

Love the little flowers! I'm with you re: cutting up your favorite papers. They just tend to stay in a little pile and I look at them from time to time just to admire them (or I buy multiples so I'll always have a 'pristine' sheet! :) Thanks so much for sharing!
