Using it up...

I know many of you are wearing the same shoes that I am...you know the ones that make you want all of great new releases from CHA-W? the stuff you absolutely DO NOT NEED? but, you just HAVE to have it?

So that means that I have to use some of the stuff that I already have so that I can buy more stuff that absolutely do not  NEED. Enter My Mind's Eye...my all time favorite paper and embellishment manufacturer. I wish just once CHA they would produce a line or two or three that I didn't like...just once. But, alas, this release is no different for me. I LOVE every single thing. So, I'm using up some of my "older" stuff to make room for the newer stuff.

Today I have the first of many cards that I've made...


This one features My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose papers, sticker, and brad. Spellbinders brand new Aster Flower Topper S5-102, and Classic Ric Rac E8-004. Threw on some old (very old) prima crystal swirls for some bling. 

Thanks for stopping by. My littlest is turning six today so I'm off to "get the party started"!

Yes I am definitely working hard to make a visible dent in my stash so I do not feel so bad buying more new product.. Project Life has been a really good way of using up lots of odds and ends.

Yes I agree....CHA needs to stop this nonsense of all these new releases that will kill me if I don't purchase them!!!!! Seriously, have we seen my scraproom? sigh...but I will cave and continue to purchase such items! On my list - MME, CRATE, OA & SC

Very pretty card!
I have definitely been trying to use up stash the past two years as much as possible.
But I can't help adding a few new goodies every now and then :)

I need to jump on this bandwagon and use up some of my stuff....Hubby has been sooo understanding but I need to justify some new MME and Pink Paislee with some older stuff being used!
