New & Old....a note of thanks...


Happy Friday!
{s e r i o u s l y}


I've decided to start {yet another} new feature

New & Old

I don't know about you ladies, but I have a ton of New & Old stuff that, sadly, are highly neglected.  So I've decided to load up my card with the lonely goodies:)

Do you think you can spot them?


New:  

Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #3
Lifestyle Whimsy embossing folder

Old:

American Crafts Remarks Catwalk {Damask Rub on}
Craft Foam

I'm definitely late to the party but I was very inspired by this:



and
Check out Alexandra's gorgeous card sketch:



Yet another party that I'm late to since she posted this on Father's Day BUT I still wanted to play along...she has since posted another FAB sketch!

It took a ton of patience on my part to get that rub on to 'stick'...perhaps the craft foam isn't the best surface for it?  Anyways, persistance pays off...as I finally managed to get the entire damask image to load up on the tag.  



Definitely NOT a neglected item in my craft inventory...if you've been following me for a smidge, you know how much I use my EAD goodies:)  I've certainly been quite the fan of The Twinery too!

I probably say this EVERY Friday but...

I'm so glad that it's Friday!

Hoping for a relaxing weekend, I'll be happily power crafting:)

Jessi Fogan said...

Foam seems to have a 'repel fun stuff' component to it - I thought it was just me, so I feel a bit better now ;)
I love the idea of using the negative space from the cloud dies...and that fab colour combo!

Another fabulous card and I love the tag with the clouds reversed out. I don't own anything cloud related so might have to fix that when my spending freeze is over.

Love this! What a great idea with craft foam- would never have considered using it- just relegated to the kids drawer really! Weird how I've been digging out the old too!!
