At the beginning of the year, I resolved to use what I had in my craft stash instead of constantly adding to it. And for the most part, I've done pretty well. I slipped a little when The Angel Company had the 50% off sale, and then again when the new supplement came out, and then I bought some Copic markers from Oozak just before the prices went up (but technically I saved money, so that doesn't count) Having absolutely NO willpower to resist, the only way I can do this is not to look. Not to look online and certainly not to go browsing around LSS's, M's or HL. Because if I do that, all would be lost... see the paper to the left?
I was lured into Micheals last week, spurred on by the possibility, based on the rumour, that some stores had begun to carry Tim Holtz products. I am in awe of Tim Holtz - he is everything I aspire to be (and by that I mean a fabulous, creative, vintage, grunge genius, rather than a cute man, obviously) so between that and the 40% off coupon that appeared in my inbox, what was a girl to do?
As you can see resistance was futile. Not only did I find the Tim Holtz products, several of which are now cozily in their new home in my craft room, but this stash of paper from DCWV, called Nana's Kitchen. It is glittery and gorgeous and the last thing I need is more paper but how could I resist?
And it goes just perfectly with the stamp I talked about in the Keurig post, so I dug it out and created this card. It's kind of hard to see, but there is a pocket on the left hand side of the interior (which the little cutie is stuck to) that would just be perfect for a Starbucks gift card.
I like the card, but I'm not going back to Micheals (this week anyway)
The stamp is Hanglar and Stangler and the coffee ring and the sentiments are by Inkadinkadoo.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend - thanks for stopping by!
