Stash To Treasure Saturday - #3

Welcome to week 3 of
STASH TO TREASURE SATURDAY!
Each week I take some long-neglected item(s) from my stash
and create something new.
I know we all have those items,
the color is not now,
the style is so 2000s,
the theme is no longer relevant.
I am going to try my best to take those items and breathe new life into them.

PLEASE READ TO THE END OF THIS POST.
I WOULD LIKE YOUR INPUT.
THANKS

Okay, so today I am stretching the intention
 of this weekly challenge.
These stamps have not been sitting around for years,
but were purchase 6+ months ago
and not touched until this past week.
All of the old goodies I have been working with lately
have been making their way into kits for my shop.
I thought about sharing some of those,
but thought that didn't make much sense.
So, stamping it is!

These Lawn Fawn mini stamp sets are far too adorable
to be ignored any longer.
Feel free to scroll through
my latest kiddo cards.
I made 2 from each stamp set,
for a total of 10 cards.










I was wondering whether anyone would like 
this weekly series to be presented as a link-up party?
Would you be interested in visiting the party participants 
and more importantly, would you link up your latest
STASH TO TREASURE project?  
Please let me know in the comments section.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Please leave a comment.
At the end of the month,
I will announce a random winner
of a special gift.
(only one comment per post will be entered).

Lovely weekend to you all,
hugs,
Kim

Stash To Treasure Saturday - #2

Welcome to week 2 of
STASH TO TREASURE SATURDAY!
Each week I take some long-neglected item(s) from my stash
and create something new.
I know we all have those items,
the color is not now,
the style is so 2000s,
the theme is no longer relevant.
I am going to try my best to take those items and breathe new life into them.

Today I am sharing some vintage crochet pansies.
I have lost count of how many of these lovely pansy-edged doilies 
have made their way home with me over the years.
I coffee dyed this one a while back,
used a few of the sweet flowers,
but these tattered remains have sat for quite some time.

By adding vintage stamens and velvet leaves
what was once old,
is new again.


Thanks so much for visiting.

I Did It, I Really, Really Did It!


 

Being one who distracts easily,
I haven't often (if ever) used an entire pack of scrapbook paper,
until now.

I made up my mind to use this darling Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pad from cover to cover.
A couple weeks and 29 cards later,
mission accomplished,
I had a blast!

Stash To Treasure Saturday #1

Welcome to my first
STASH TO TREASURE SATURDAY!
I hope to make this an ongoing series.
I will take some long-neglected item(s) from my stash
and create something new.
I know we all have those items,
the color is not now,
the style is so 2000s,
the theme is no longer relevant.
I am going to try my best to take those items and breathe new life into them.

For this week's project,
I chose these vellum star stickers.
They have been in my stash for over a decade
and almost went into the trash on several occasions.

I paired them with scraps of paper
and some adorable stamped images
to create this grouping of cards.









I am so glad you visited today!

Please leave a comment.
At the end of the month,
I will announce a random winner
of a special gift.

Happy, Creative Hugs,
Kim

Paper Doll Swap #2


Meet "Baby Bear...

... and the 3 Goldilocks."

They arrived at their new home safely tucked into this 
altered book cover.
I purposely left the cover without color
to make the inside explosion of pattern and color
more impactful upon opening the book.
I am not convinced that it was the right choice.

Wishing you a
Fairy Tale Come True
kind of day!

hugs,
Kim

Paper Doll Swap #1

I have been saving this antique tri-fold photo mat for years,
waiting for the perfect projects.

I was thrilled when Jackie of
invited me to join her new doll swap group!

It has been so long since I have belonged to an art swap group,
and was excited to get started on our first challenge.

The first swap theme was
"Artist's Choice"
in which, we were to feature our own style.

Anyone of you who knows me even a bit,
knows that in my case,
that means vintage lace, floral patterns, sweet faces,
and a bit of glitter.

Thanks Jackie for this beautiful doll,
and for allowing me to join this fun group!

Happy Weekend,
hugs,
Kim
