This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Everything old is new again....

It really is when you have a huge paper and card stock stash! I have been digging this weekend. While hubby is out digging in the snow, I've been digging in my old supplies again. I found this beautiful Club Scrap card stock that was embossed with black. When I got this card stock in a monthly scrap kit, I had no idea what to do with it, so there in the paper storage it has sat, sad and neglected. I decided to see what I could do with it. This brightly colored card is way out of the box for me, but I like it. I used the long rectangle Nestibilities to cut the window on the front of the card. I rediscovered a pretty butterfly die with matching embossing folders and I embellished the butterfly with a black Spica glitter pen. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.



Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment and add your blog address and I will come visit you. Have a great weekend :)

Gorgeous! Oh my...I love that color...but I agree, I think it would have intimidated me at first as well!

I love going through my stash and finding things like this. Sometimes you just need to revisit them to get a clue, and it's fun to actually use something from you stash, isn't it?

Very cool. Great colour and the butterfly looks fab.

The black and blue is very cool! The paper would have scared me a little, too, but look what you did with it! WOW!
