Does this happen to anyone else? You want to create, but then you just sit there not knowing WHAT to create? Well that's my story on this Saturday night...so I finally decided to just have fun...hehe!
That's where the hoarding comes in. I am a very impulsive buyer...if it sparkles, is pretty or popular...I want it. And yes, I'm thinking of changing my name to Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka. LOL! Then once I get all these pretty things, I have the hardest time using them.
Buying kits is something I tend to do often--my favorites are from Taylored Expressions and Paper Makeup Stamps. Well, they just sit there. Occassionally I might pull them out but basically they sit. Now tell me, what good is that?
So tonight I just grabbed the top one, which happens to be from Paper Makeup Stamps-the JULY kit..yes, JULY! I thought I'd just play around with it and see if maybe by some miracle I could use it up!!
So here's what I created with this kit (papers, ribbons, buttons, die cuts, pearls)~ My first card~ I almost didn't show this one as I had forgotten how SU markers and stickles react together..you can see the ugly black stained stickles on his wing..sigh. Lesson learned.
For my layout I used the sketch for this week at Sketchy Thursday, Sketch #122.
My second card~
I used a sketch I had saved from the old Stamping Bella forum on SCS.
Here's my final card for today and the kit is mostly used up, so I feel good about that plus I used stamps I haven't used before!
The little details~ PMS July Kit, Teddy Fairy, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, copics, nestabilities, scrappers floss, stickles, Carma Fairy, Francesca the Cat, Cutie Critter Sayings, embossing folders, copic glitter pens,
