SOS: Something Old and Something New!


Hope you've had a great first week of 2018... 51 weeks to go this year!

This week at Shopping Our Stash, we are celebrating the old as well as the new!  We'd like you to use something from your stash, and also something new. 

Here are my cards representing old and new:

  • The old: 
    • Both the green papers on these cards are multiple years old, and I think the lighter green is probably 5-7 years old.  They were both scraps in my scrap bin. 
    • The studs at the corners of the second card are many years old also.  I have fears that the adhesive isn't so adhesive anymore.  The packaging is long-gone, but I think Recollections made these.
    • The green panels were inked with DI in Frayed Burlap and Gathered Twigs
  • The not-new:
    • Both Tim Holtz die sets (Mini Greenery and Sentiments) are a couple years old.
    • The background paper on both cards is from Tim's paper pad, a couple years old
    • Twine from my stash
  • The new: 
    • The Big Shot used to cut the dies with!  Merry Christmas to me!
So, what new items did you add to your stash?  Show us at Shopping Our Stash!  See you over there.  


  1. I've had things so long they don't stick it's good to have glue handy. both cards are lovely, Very interesting die cuts. Awesome using the negative cuts.

  2. beautiful combination of old stuff and new stuff & woohoo for the Big Shot! ♥

    Hoooorah for a new big shot!!

  5. Woo Hoo!! Congratulations on getting your first Big Shot Mimi, you are going to love it and now, you need to get dies and embossing folders, fabulous.
    Beautiful way to use the old, the not so old and the new!!

  6. Great cards and I love the colors and designs. How have you been making cards without a Big Shot all this time? I'd have been lost without mine years ago! Congrats on treating yourself - you're going to love it I'm sure :)
