Become a consumer not a collector!

What is in your stash of paper crafting supplies? Probably too much...so I want to encourage you to take time and start using what you have to create projects that will be fun to make and fantastic to gift others with.
This evening in our card class we used a retired paper pack and retired kraft scalloped cards to make unique cards for Fall.  Everyone had a different result with the same supplies and it was a very relaxing and pleasant evening.  We focused on adapting patterns to use what is on hand, we dry embossed, and made the envelopes coordinate with the card creations. I also taught masking for when you only want to use part of a stamp and taught how to use paint to embellish the inside of some of the scallops on the inside of the cards.
What will you make with what is on hand in your stash?
Always,  Alayne
