Shopping our Stash #107 - Your Oldest Embellishment


You know the drill - we want you to shop your stash & use it! This week at Shopping our Stash the challenge is to dig out & use your oldest embellishment! Is it something you've been saving for a rainy crafty day? Something you bought too many of? (*koff*) Something you bought & then really didn't know how to use? USE IT!

I'm particularly proud of myself because the newest item on this card is just the markers I used to colour. And a new bottle of Dimensional Magic because, well, I use that stuff up! Everything else is a minimum of a year old.

Supplies: papers from Fancy Pants; stamps from Inkadinkado; Bic & Spectrum Noir markers; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (on her glasses & surfboard); Distress EP in Old Paper (for sand); Memento Tuxedo Black ink; pink rhinestones; OLDEST EMBELLISHMENT: my sailboat button from Dress it Up. 


I bought SO MANY of these buttons - and I made the mistake of buying lots of 'variety' packs because they were a good price. They were a good price likely because I was never going to be able to use a large number of them...so I had lots of these to choose from. Oh well, one less!

So what's YOUR oldest embellie? Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, July 1st - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi
