Waste Not Wednesdays wk7

Well it's now week 7 of my little 'Waste Not Wednesdays' challenge, and I've decided to change things slightly, so you can now join in using anything that you need to use... for me this is usually going to be an unused stamp or digi, but for you it could be a pack of papers that have been neglected, something that you bought so you could try a new technique that's been gathering dust ever since (can you tell I'm guilty of this one?!)... Whatever it is, I don't mind - just get all that neglected stash out and get it on a card :o)



When I was moving some stuff around in the craft room, I found a pack of Gorjuss Girl sheets of die cut images... I vaguely remember buying them in a sale, must have been more than a year ago and the pack was still unopened.  I always feel like I'm cheating a bit when I use a pre-coloured image, but as I've got them it's better to get them used, right?

The papers are all scraps from a Cosmo Cricket pad, the flowers were also bought in a sale ages ago and the sentiment is from the Gorjuss Girl die cut pack.  The corner is my latest favourite die, the memory box Madera Corner and the pearls are from my stash.  The trim is from a bag of offcuts that my mum's boss sent me - mum makes window blinds for a little family run business... I was practically drooling going through the bag, there are some gorgeous pieces.  Mum thinks I'm very sad getting so excited over a bag of offcuts though lol!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Thanks to everyone who's been joining in with me so far, I love popping round to see your creations :o)  Hopefully I've made it a bit easier for you to keep playing along now I've changed the 'rules', just for fun again this week.  See you soon, have a lovely evening!

  4. Gorgeous card Lisa! I love the colours you've used and your fab layout.

    Years ago my mum used to work for Clinique and I was always thrilled with the make-up samples she brought home. These days I'd kill for your bag of off cuts, lol!!

  11. Hi Lisa, ooooh so not fair showing a wonderful corner die like that when I'm on a stash diet! And I've been after a corner die for ages too!!

    Seriously though, gorgeous card - love the colours and papers. I know just what you mean about feeling like you're cheating when using a pre-coloured image. Do love the Gorjuss girls tho - pre-printed or stamp.

    Will try to join in with you this week, but with Emily home on half-term crafting time is seriously reduced.

  17. Hi Lisa, it must be scary the amount of stash we have all got.....we probably would fill a warehouse between us all. Love this card and fab corner die. I must find time to play along.

  18. Tee hee Lisa .. .. I would get excited about a bag of off-cuts like that too.

    I know what you mean about using a pre-coloured image .. .. though why we should feel like that I don't know. As long as we get a result we are happy with why do we worry?

    I don't even think recipients know when we have coloured them!!! LOL!!!

    Love your finished card and your lovely backing papers and layout.

    Love Jules xx

  27. I definitely need to get on board with your Waste Not Wednesday. I have been trying to do the Use it Up challenge too, but they suggest you not buy more and I can't commit to that. But I definitely need to spend time with the stuff I do have too. I love your very sweet card with all its different papers, layers, elements, die cuts and that most excellent trim! Tell your mom that there is lots to get excited about a stash of leftover trim!!!

  30. Nothing wrong with drooling over a bag of offcuts! I'm sure I'm not alone in buying a box of chocolates because I like the ribbon!!! I love the different colours on this card -it really is quite striking!

  31. I understand exactly what you mean about pre coloured images but I'm also certain in my case that many of the recipients/purchasers can't tell the difference!!

    Now I've got my birthdays all behind me, I am determined to play along....goodness knows I have enough neglected stash including stamps....

    Hugs xx
