New Year- Use your Stash Blog Hop

Welcome to our New Year - Use Your Stash Blog Hop! 

Hello! It's time for the “New Year- Use your Stash Blog Hop”! We’re super excited that you could join us for this awesome one day hop! This hop will be filled with lots of fun projects made with many different items from our stashes--You know what I'm talking about!

Yes,  New is Nice-- But, You know what we all do! We buy things that we never use, and store it away! So today we are sharing some goodies from our stashes. I was so excited about this hop because I love to Craft with stuff I already have! Many of you know my whole, $$Craft Green, To Save Green$$ Slogan I use all the time!! I love to craft this way, super fun & gets me to think a bit!

If you came from Brenda then you’re on the right track, but if you just happened to come across this hop, or you are reading this from your dashboard, please head back to Heather's Blog  at the beginning! We wouldn't want you to miss a thing. 

Now, onto my project!

Normally, when I sit down to make a creation, I just start picking random things out of my scrap box to use. So this project was no exception! I chose this paper from my scrap box, which I got in a Scrap Swap that I host. (Scrap Swap) It's a fantastic way to get new paper to use without buying it!! I also pulled out a new Stamp that I bought at a crop back in October, I thought it was super cute! I then picked  a few embellishments out of the stash to use on this card! It's a pretty simple card, but I really like it! It's for a friend!!  The technique I used for the background of my stamp is by using a paint brush with chalk ink. Super Easy & fun (My two small kiddos loved it!)

Now what fun would a Hop be without some Candy to go with it?
