Using forgotten stash... papers

Hey bloggers..

If you read my blog you will have seen in the last few days that I have been playing with forgotten stamps. Well for today it's a forgotten paper pack...

Ok I must be honest.. I have STACKS and STACKS of forgotten paper packs.. Before I got hooked on all things inky and messy, I used to be addicted to papers. I would buy any pack I could afford with the result that I could now make a stack from floor to celing.. no kidding.. I really could.. and that dont include my christmas papers come to think of it...

So in a bid to start using the goodies I have I pulled out a paper pack.. I just took the top one in one of my 12x12 piles and its a Docrafts papermania one called Sew Lovely.

Using just the elements from the paper pack I made this card.

Let me know what you think? Do you have unloved stash that would love to play? 
Let me hear your thoughts :-)
And dont forget to come visit me on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or my FB page.

Happy Crafting


  1. Wish I had as many paper pads Marlene! I don't have many and so tend to use some, especially favourite ones repetitively! Love what you've done using elements from the pad. Shabneez xxx

  2. Wonderful card Marleen. I'm using old stuff at the mo too and really enjoying it. Amazing what papers and dies I've got I bought at the start. I've also got kits which I'm not keen on using now but think I'm going to have a go at some stage to sell. X

  3. Thats a beautiful card, and I approve of you using your stash of card. Like you I have oodles of papers and really ought to make something. I still like to stroke the papers and am loath to cut them!! Think we crafters are much the same!!

  4. I found this paper pack languishing in my stash too! This is a fab card, love the cut out elements. Creative Blessings, Tracy x
