ICS #7 and Use Your Stash


First I have my card for Inspirational Card Sketch #7 to share with you. Several days ago I found out about GCD Studios and I don't know how I didn't discover them sooner. They recently started a blog to show of their fabulous new lines and have been hosting some awesome giveaways. They have ten news lines and they are all so cute! So since I heard that Micheal's sells some of their papers the next chance I got I went to Micheal's to check out their which ones I could find. I picked out the Spring All Over collection perfect for Easter layouts but also just for fun cards. I loved the bright green and oranges which I used for the card above. I've already started another card from the pack. The shimmer and flocked paper papers that come with the set are so beautiful. Besides the super cute GCD studios supplies I added some Stickles, Making Memories brads, and Offray lace/glitter ribbon from my stash.


Speaking of my stash, here's my LO for the challenge over at Use Your Stash. The challenge was to use eyelets and so I punched holes along the border of my scalloped edge and filled it up with a bunch of old Making Memories eyelets. I have a bunch of eyelets and don't use them too often but my Crop-o-Dile sure makes it easy when I do decide to. It felt good to use something I've had for so long.
I've been slowly scrapping the pictures from our summer vacation to Florida and its great to relive the memories after so many months. Since I already made a mini album with the pictures for my grams I have all the journaling done and so I feel comfortable taking my time. I'm off to do some more scrapping.
