Use it Tuesday…

15 May

Good Morning!  I am going to share something a little different with you this morning.  I love to do fancy folds and I came across something a little different on Pinterest the other day so I thought I would give it a try.  This card is folded like a business envelope and I used buttons and string to make the closure…

Post14Over at the Use it Tuesday blog they are challenging us to use the supplies that we hoard and avoid using because we just can’t part with them.  I’ve got lots of hoarding going on with this creation.  The glitter paper is #1… I used it to die cut my little dragonfly.  Also the paper doily… I covet all doilies and my friend Carol gave me these doilies and I know that once they are gone I won’t be able to get anymore. 😦  Notice how I only used half the doily?  LOL!  Yup, I take hoarding to a new level.  Also, the paper I used is by My Mind’s Eye Collectable “Today”  Now I know I can get more of this paper… but I have to wait until the weekend until I get to visit The Cutting Garden again to replenish my stash.  So there you have it, it is a little different but I am happy with the finished project!  I hope you like it too!


Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by!!

    Oh Lisa, you have done it again! A great idea. It is unique and pretty and a wonderful idea. Thank you for your hard work. Between you and Lauren–you girls pique my interest and inspire me on a daily basis. I look forward to opening my emails because of the two of you. Have a great day.

    So, so beautiful. I also only use 1/2 of my doilies, when they’re on the edge like that, no need to waste such a beautiful product, haha. Thanks for joining us at Use It Tuesday.
