The past couple of weeks have been great because I have had the kick up the rear needed to use stuff that I had purchased and then not got around to using, or in some cases - ahem, quite a lot of cases - forgot I even had . . . which also meant I discovered quite a few 'duplicate' purchases!
The impetus was the terrfic challenge over at Darnell's blog HERE . . . and if any of you don't know, although I would be amazed if you didn't, Darnell was the one resposible for the acronym NBUS, standing for, Never Before Used Schtuff!
Then came CAS.ology Week 129 - NBUS Challenge and I was off!
This time it was the turn of the Memory Box, 'Chloe Stem' die that was the star of the show. I cut it out of gold foil and white cardstock and then inlaid the gold die cut into the negative space of the white panel. To finish off I adhered two strips of striped paper that I made with a MFT background stamp and mounted the inlaid panel on top, finishing off with a sprinkle of gold sequins. Then, when I went to post it for the challenge, I found I'd missed it . . . oh, well, never mind! Here it is anyway!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and I appreciate any comments you may have and will reciprocate where possible. Have a great crafty day/evening. Hazel x
