Stash Raid!!! Creative Accents Challenge :)

Good Morning Bloggers!! It’s challenge time again at Creative Accents and this month they want you to dig out all that beautiful product that you’ve been hoarding and finally create something with it! You know it *is* okay to cut that fabulous paper, that’s why you bought it in the first place right? lol I’m guilty of it too, but for this layout I pulled out quite a bit of hoarded product! The Tim Holtz button snaps and Kraft Resist Paper, that lovely big corduroy button, and that awesome polka dot paper by crate (I’ve been seriously hoarding that stuff…and I’m sad to say it’s almost gone!! Love that paper!) Everything I used for this layout was from my stash, some of it (like the flourish) was from a die cut pack that I bought like 4 years ago!


Here’s some close ups:

The letters were cut with a Quickutz font English Rose and then I painted Glimmer Glam on top of them…I like how it gives it a faux metal look :) I cut the letters out 3 separate times and glued them together to give them a chipboard look.  I die cut the chipboard gears from the Tim Holtz Gadgets and Gears die, painted it with Picket Fence crackle paint, then rubbed in some Antique Linen Distress Inks to give it that lovely worn look ;)




The film strip was stamped on acetate as well as the phrase inside it, then I cut it out and adhered it to a label that was also part of that hundred year old die cut pack lol ;) I just love that stamp set by Ali Edwards, it’s so perfect for scrapbookers!


I sooo love that giant button, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect layout to come along so I could use it!


Well there you go! There’s my layout, now go on and raid your stash and play along with us at Creative Accents this month!!
