This is another card using leftovers from the Charlotte WYW Scrapbooking Kit.  It is so easy to make up cards with the leftovers from this kit and it’s a great way to use everything up.

Here is a card I made using some of my leftover paper from the Charlotte WYW Scrapbooking Kit. I have a lot of old Dimensional Elements which made a great focus point for the card.  The Whisper Thick Twine is wrapped around the Whisper Cardstock and the cardstock piece is attached to the card with 3D Foam Tape.

Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Magnificent Metals

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Girl Scout Bridging Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Cardstock (Outdoor Denim and Brown Bag (retired)), Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Jubilee Paper PacketPaper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Skylark Complements, Durable Studs – Square (retired), Harvest Charms (retired), and Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 (Pattern 2).

I really enjoyed putting this layout together because it really is a stash buster.  I used old metals as well as scraps left from new papers, using up multiple paper packets.  For the metal I found some old accents that went with a specific paper packet.  This is a good example of thinking outside the box with these specific embellishments.  The complements that I used were also specific but I was able to mix those in as well.  I really wanted to use antique brads but it’s been so long I can’t find them (!) so I used the studs instead.

Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Paper!

This is a great start for our first 2014 Use Your Stash Blog Hop- This month we are digging into our stash and using up that paper!  Anyone who has been scrapbooking for some time most likely has their fair share of paper.  Some have  a more serious case of stashing than others (I was looking through my stash the other day wondering if it would even be possible to use it all up!).

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Full of Fun Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: ProPlayer Paper Packet, Laughing Lola WOTG Stamp Set, Archival Black Ink, and ProPlayer Assortment.

I have to be honest and say I really didn’t dig very far into my stash for this one.  I am, however, working at using up my stash.  I am trying to use up the papers from 2013 before the new ones show up and they are forgotten. 🙂  This layout is a perfect example of how you can re-use the WOTG stamp sets for many more future layouts with different paper packets.

I don’t have much of a system yet for my patterned papers (I need to work on that and will blog about it when I do) but what you may be interested in is how I sort my cardstock.  I have found that it is a great solution to choose one brand of cardstock and stick with it (for me that is CTMH).  In using the same colors I have become familiar with them and it makes choosing colors and scrapbooking in general faster.  You can see more in THIS POST about how I have organized my scraps and now I actually use them!
