Stash Diet!!!!.........

Love my Postie.... Yesterday he delivered my SAkit for this month, which included a couple of previous kits that were going cheap(At no extra postage!). This is the first parcel I have had for a couple of weeks as I am trying not to buy any stash at the moment. SA kits dont count though as they are pre ordered HOORAH!!!

Didn't realise quite how difficult this was going to be, but I do have an enormous amount of stash that needs using up. I have sorted out lots of old stuff that I would not use anymore and I have been selling these bits off on Ebay.
Really, really want Crate paper Avenue collection, but it seems to be sold out everywhere at the moment. Hopefully my diet will be finished by the time I find it in stock.

Have been busy making some cards for my Mum's tin(see previous post) which has used up a bit more stash. I used a couple of blog sketches for these, a great way to make a card quickly as you do not need too much inspiration. Here are a two of them, I will put in about 15 but wont bore you with piccies of them all.

Thank you card made using the sketch here;







Paper from old SA kit, mm rub ons, raffia from local florist, and prima flowers (dont you just love the huge prima flower?) for some reason this piccie didn't come out too clearly, must be the camera, couldn't have been my photography skills :S

And the Birthday card was made using the sketch here;

sketch this cards: week 3




more papers from old SA kit, primas and mm rub ons.

The sketches are great fun to do, think I will be doing more of these!!:)
Happy Crafting! :)
