Stash-busting at it's best...

I'm pretty sure I'm not a scrap-supplies hoarder.  I DO plan to use all these supplies UP someday.  Eventually, if not soon.  So when I managed to make a dent in the supply, I hang a medal around my neck and give myself a trophy!!  This was one of those days!  

I love wood veneer.  And I don't like to use it too liberally in case it all goes away and there is a wood veneer shortage in the scrapping world.  Same with rub-ons.  (Sadly though, some rub-ons have a "best before" date.  Buts that's for another post.)

Anyway.  When I got the bright idea to layer some rub-ons on wood veneer shapes I knew I'd need to be finding that medal and trophy!

Check them out.

 This card I made for my son as he left home to move one state over.  I didn't want it to be all maudlin and sad, so I thought these Ali Edwards/Technique Tues stamp sentiments seemed perfect!





 I used a couple more Lasered Edge card sentiments in the process.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. Oh, well done! Excellent stash busting. You should know that you are my go-to person for stash-busting ideas :) I don't have a lot of rub-ons ... it's that 'best before' problem ... or wood veneers either, but now I have plenty of ideas on how to use them in projects. Thanks for sharing. Elizabeth xx
