Welcome to the second 'Old Skool' blog hop. If you are following the blog hop you would of arrived here from the VERY tallented Jackys' blog.
Right now again, you will have to excuse my 'Old Skool' stuff not being really 'Old Skool'. Being a scrapbook want to be-er and a card thrower oner for only 10 months my much loved precious stash isnt very old. Its all very strokable though :O)
I am actually proud of myself again... I managed to take a sheet of 'Once Upon a Time' by DCWV and cut it !!!! Yes it was only from my mat stack, but even the same Once upon a time is Once upon a time :O) The flowered card is my much loved paper. The navy blue shimmer card and roses were bought when i was playing around, attempting to make our wedding invitations. So they must be 5 years old. Ribbon, Butterfly charm and sentiment were from my stash and the gems were from the first 'pull a name out the hat' prize i won on MSE :O)
So theres my little piece of the blog hop.Thankyou for stopping by. xxx
Have a hop over to the next exciting blog.

The flowers were put together with flowers from my stash and card candy. I inked the edge of the Happy Mothers Day stamped image,to make it stand out a little.
Heres hoping that all Mums,have a Happy day xx

This one was for Jennie ( The-Wife).
The stamped image came from Craftygranny,i think. The rafia lace was originally natural,but i have found that you can colour it with Promarkers. The pewter half pearls are from Quixotic Paperie. The sentiment is from, Forever Friends Pink Parfait collection. I couldnt find a suitable cake image for wifey, who does love cakes.
This card was for Caroline ( CT1972).
It was stamped with Daisy that i bought off Rusty. The backing paper is MME Pretty please,spring papers. The white e-line flowers were coloured with Promarkers,to match her headband.Half Pearls were from Quixotic Paperie and the sentiment was from Forever Friends again.
I hope both the ladies had a fantastic birthday xx

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
