Stop Hoarding Those Supplies and Start Using them! (Crafting Old School)

Hi friends! Today we are going to make some pretty cards using bits and bobs you likely have in the craft room. You can use printed ephemera, pattern papers, tags, envelopes, bits of trim and lace, stamps, wax seals, buttons, twine and anything you like. You can use any combinations of things you like. We have been collecting these precious things for years so we will have different things to hand but that is what makes our cards unique.

Gather up some supplies, and maybe a cup of tea and craft with me!

  4. boy golly, I have collected so much stuff that “I’m going to use this someday when I can paint… I’ll keep all this music for someday when I can play the ukulele… on and on”
    you’re right I just need to pull it out and use it!
