Take from your Stash Tuesday

Good morning all! This is the first in the weekly "Take from your Stash Tuesday" series. Im sure Im not alone when I say that I have ALOT of supplies, but it doesnt stop me from hitting the "purchase" button at Scrapbook.com or adding more to my my many kit clubs, Hip Kit ClubScraptastic, The Scrappery or Citrus Twist! So after watching a few youtube videos from Adele of Inkie Quill, I knew I needed to impliment something similar of my own. Her consists of 5 items from your stash, I just decided I would pull as many as I wanted to use from my stash, not my brandie new kits, or fresh purchases!

As you can see I chose Amy Tan fabric stickers, Pink Fresh foam words (yes they are fairly new, but I ended up with 2 sets), a piece of  Summer Sun patterned paper from Fancy Pants, some old Martha Stewart felt numbers, a tag sheet I got from the Freckled Fawn grab bag sale, a teal doily, and because they were the only 2 things from the collection, the Summer Sun paper pieces. When I opened the paper pieces and saw the little square cards, I knew what I  had to do! I am a sucker for a grid pattern. I also ended up adding some October Afternoon alphas, some enamel dots, and of course some Mr Heuy's color mist. Im really happy with how it turned out, very bright and cheery. It fit the mood of the picture perfectly, a beautiful sunny day in SC. (We spent 7 days there, so there will be many pics scrapped from that week!)

So that wraps up my first Tuesday post. I'd love to hear what you think. Anything you'd like to see me use, I probably have it or something very similar! Thanks for stopping by. Check back tomorrow for Weekly Layout Wednesday.

It was so needed for me, when new goodies come, I don't touch the "older" stuff! It's also nice to see all the things you forgot you had!
