When I started scrapbooking this vacation album, I bought the new Fancy Pants Beach Bum and Beach Babe kits. I adore Fancy Pants stuff! But, I have so much older stash that I made a promise to myself to also use up all the old supplies that I have had kicking around, some of it for years. I have stuff that I won in contests or stuff I earned on design teams. It's bordering on the ridiculous! So, here is my first jump into using up some old stash and I'm quite pleased with the result.
This is a really old Heidi Swapp paper that I misted with Tattered Angels and inked with Distress Inks. I pop-dotted the butterflies (which were already partially cut for that purpose) and added some My Mind's Eye brads. I inked the butterflies as well. The vines were cut with the Cricut. Even the paper strips are from scraps of Heidi Swapp, Fancy Pants and some specialty paper from a Scraptivity kit. See? I had to sneak in some Fancy Pants, somewhere. ;)
I should have another page for the end of the week. I've been on a roll! Woohoo!
Thanks for looking,
