Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Welcome to a Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop!

You may be arriving from Majken’s blog but if not don’t worry, there is a link at the end of this post that you can follow to get to the next stop on the Blog Hop. Eventually you’ll make your way back to Majken!

Today I am scrapping two things from my stash … well, specifically two things but more items found their way onto my cards! The first was several to-go style coffee cups from a piece of patterned paper from Shimelle’s True Stories line from American Crafts. I’d fussy cut them ages ago with the intent of creating cards or gift card holders but … they just sat on my desk waiting. It happens! Then I picked up her Starshine 6×6 paper pad on sale and decided it was time to get those cups onto cards!

Here’s what I came up with.

Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Welcome to a Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop!

It’s been awhile since a group of us from the Practical Scrapper days got together to host a blog hop. Did you miss us?

So glad to be a part of it again!

These blog hops are designed to help you (and us) dig into those older items and get them used up. Your stash isn’t doing you, or your crafting, any good unless you use it, right? You may be arriving here from Majken’s blog. If not, no worries. Just follow the link at the end of this post that will take you to the next blog in the line. You can continue to follow the links in each post until you circle back. Enjoy all the inspiration!

Today I am sharing how I used up the rest of my July 2016 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. So not an older product but if you saw my Crafting on the Go video, you know that I have a large stash of these kits! If I can kill one before the next arrives, I consider that a good thing!

Remember these?

Welcome to the February Edition of Scrapping Our Stash!

You may be arriving from Lynn’s site but if not don’t panic! I’ve got a full Blog Hop list for you at the end of this post.

Today I am trying – key word there – to put a dent into my stash of frames. For some reason I’ve been amassing cute little frame elements even though I hardly ever use them on a page. Weird, I know. That’s just the way I roll sometimes!

Here’s a look at most of my stash and what I made with some of it. Continue reading »

Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Welcome to another Scrapping Our Stash blog hop!

We took a couple months off during the chaos that is late November, and December, but we are back with more inspiration to help you bust through that ever growing scrapbook paper stash!

You should be arriving from Lee-Anne’s blog but if not, have no fear. The entire hop list is at the end of my post to help you out.

Today I am sharing a cute little treat holder made from a toilet paper roll that is perfect for Valentine’s Day. If you’re super ambitious, you’ve got enough time to make one for every kid in your child’s classroom … or just your own children. As I will be doing!

Here’s what you need to make one: Continue reading »

As a mom I refuse to entertain any talk about Halloween until the calendar rolls over into October. As an Etsy shop owner however, I need to be more open to forward thinking shoppers! Boo Humbug! So, for the past few weeks I’ve been madly immersing myself in all things black, orange, and decidedly spooky. Continue reading »
