Shopping our Stash #88 - Bling!


Time for another in our series of stash-busting supply challenges! This week at Shopping our Stash we want you to use some of your hoarded bling - rhinestones, stickles, glitter, etc. Here's the thing - I don't hoard bling as a general rule. I use it, a lot. 

These hearts are an exception. I don't remember how old they are - I'd venture at LEAST a year, possibly two. They are pretty in the package, but I can't say I'm all that happy with how they look on a card. And even though I used three, I didn't quite finish the package...closer, though!


Supplies: Heart-shaped rhinestone stickers from Dollarama; papers from Basic Grey

This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until Monday February 11th.  Don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to!


As for me, writing this right as it's due to go live, I'm going to go make the kids' lunches & then go back to bed! A four-hour time difference between my mom & I makes for an awfully late-night conversation - and it turns out I'm too old to go to bed at 1 a.m. and still get up at 5 ;) Wouldn't trade it for the world though - love you, Mom :) 

xoxo,
Jessi
