I know I said we would see the second shabby lesson card today, but I wanted to show you all something else I have been working on..something new!(We will get to the other shabby card tomorrow) . My workmate Lydell , who is a true artist, is running a class in August called Use your stash, and her ideas and samples are truly amazing and inspired me to grab all the bits and pieces ( die cuts, odds and ends of ribbon,buttons, flowers and papers) that were piled on my desk and turn them into what I am calling Stash Tags. These are made ready to pop on cards and scrapbook layouts and can be stored in one tidy box ready for when I need to make a quick card. Each time I finish creating I will whip up a couple of these to clear up my desk ( that’s the theory anyway!). These ones are actually going to America as a thankyou to a very lovely lady who sent me some beautiful things. I have a few more to make for her and a folder to file them in. I hope this inspires you all to use your stash! Til tomorrow….
