I am bound and determined to use up my stash!
I covered 4 mini-notebooks, found at the dollar store.
I used the 
scraps and pieces left in my coordinating Complements set.
Our "Complements" sets are such a great deal.
You get lots of stickers and chipboard pieces.
Some are glittered, Kraft, or foil too.
Just a lovely assortment.
Some of the stamped images for these project were just sitting on my stamping desk waiting for a good home.
Happy weekend.
Maybe some Spring like weather is on the way, fingers crossed!

Gimme Some Sugar

After creating the Chelsea Gardens cards (see last blog post) I decided I needed to use the same sketch and work with the Gimme Some Sugar papers and Complements.
I really had not idea what I would use those peach stickers for but they are the perfect accent for this thank you note.
Notice the shimmer on the pinky part?
That was created with the Bashful Shimmer Brush.
That product will not move onto the next book so you better get one before May!
I love the soft, blush color shimmer it gives.
I already have spare, lol.
One more for today...
Don't be afraid to layer those chipboard pieces and use up y our stash!

A BIG thank you

And a big "thank you" to you for stopping by to read my blog.
This week I am sharing some tips on using up those leftover stickers, chipboard pieces and random embellishments.  
Those little goodies are perfect for cards.
Today I have two cards created with the Chelsea Gardens papers and coordinating Complements.
I already completed the WYW layout kit and a couple of layouts, many pages in my
The Important Things album and I still had some pieces left so I challenged myself to 
"use it up" before digging into new product which I can share with you beginning May 1.
The next card is basically the same sketch,
which I found in the Spring editions of Scrapbook & Cards Today.
Thanks for the visit.  Come on back for a few more tips throughout the week.
Have a great week.

Gimme Some Sugar

The featured paper packet for this month is
Gimme Some Sugar.
It sure is sweet!
I will be showing cards created with this paper packet, coordinating Complements, and coordinating Be-YOU-tiful PML cards.
The background of this card is one of the PML cards.
They are a great deal at $5.95 for 24 cards.
The Cork Shapes are fun too.

These pretties will only be around for the rest of this month.
On May 1 our new Seasonal Expressions will go live.
Have a sweet week.
