Challenge 61: Something New
Use something you HAD to have but have not yet used.
using new stuff is not a problem for me, except in the sense that sometimes i have a hard time waiting until i get home to open the packets!!! :) i will confess, however, to occasionally allowing something to "fly off my radar" if i have somehow managed not to use it right away. that happened with the set of glittery papaya art gift tags i bought in california this spring; partly because the tin is so pretty i've been using it as a decoration, and i sort of somehow *forgot* the tags were in there! but i've remembered now, and am firmly re-smitten, so expect to see more of these babies!
(ooh la la gift tag: papaya art; patterned paper: heidi swapp, graphic 45; velvety flower: petaloo; pearl flourish: want2scrap; other: heart doily, music twill; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)
oh and something else i am using for the first time is the gorgeous music note twill that miss leslie found, and sent to me for no other reason than just because she knew i was looking for just such an item! (♥thank you, missus!!!♥)
for the arrangement of my card, i used this week's lovely (#168) unscripted sketch, which i rotated ninety degrees, counter-clockwise:
i'm also linking this up with miss patrice's 52 card pick-up on her blog, the old back porch.
and now i hope you will hop over to SOS to see the rest of the gorgeous DT creations, and start thinking what kind of unused fabulousness ♥YOU♥ have forgotten about... and how you'll attach it to a card, layout, ATC or altered project!
ooohhh la la!ReplyDelete

You do the collage mix so well - you make it look easy to do! A lovely creation!ReplyDelete
The music note twill tape and the tag are absolutely to die for!!! The lacey heart doily is the perfect backdrop for these lovely embellishments. Thanks so much for choosing to use our sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches :)ReplyDelete

This is a gorgeous card! I haven't forgotten about you! I'm still reading I just sometimes can't respond till certain. I am collecting bits and bobs for you in New Orleans! :) hehe expect a package when you least expect it. muahuahuaha I went to the absolute coolest place ever yesterday that you would have died to see. Picture it, small little teeny town in Louisiana. Guy who hoarded everything you can imagine and made a museum out of junk. Yes.. junk. He had a collection of paint by number paintings to revel many real art museums. A wall of glass bottles.. and so on and so on. gators turned into bass and morphed into some weird hybrid. Taxidermy. 3 bucks to get in. haha Wish you had been there! Talk to you soon.ReplyDelete
