Using up the stash

I find that as time goes on, my scrappy stash is growing by leaps and bounds.  Part of the reason is that I seem to stay pretty busy during the day with work, so I simply do not get enough time in my craft room.  The other reason is a pretty common one: I need all the things 🙂  It’s pretty tough to resist all of those great products out there.  I am trying to limit myself to just my Hip Kit subscription and one on line purchase a month.  That has been a challenge.  So going forward, my goal is to use up as much of my stash as I possibly can.

This month, one way I will tackle this lofty goal is to work on some projects that will force me to dive into my stash.  I started a mini album today that will get me into those summer papers and embellis, but I also worked on this layout I am featuring on my blog today.  My goal was to use some of the supplies from my January HK, in fact I used an entire sheet of rub-ons on this one layout!!  I was pretty happy with how that turned out.  The January kit had some very nice products from the My Story collection from MME.  I love that collection. So I found a picture that would work with the collection and off I went on a creative journey to create the feature layout for this blog post.  I have included some still shots and the video link below.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!  Have an amazing day!!

The wonderful thing about the Hip Kit is everything you need for embellishing is in the kit and coordinates with all of the pieces/papers.  You can create the most original projects by using the supplies in a new and interesting combination.
