Shopping Our Stash #278

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #278 is....
Use something already out on your desk!!

This was a hard one for me. My craft space is in my dining room and our house is a open floor plan. You can see my crafty space as soon as you walk in our front door so I am in the habit of keeping my desk clean. As soon as I get done with a project, I clean my area up. I do have a little soap dish that I keep extra die cuts in though so that is what I used for my project. 

I had a tag and some hearts that I had foiled in here. A few months back I originally planned on using them in a layout for my Project Life album but ended up going a different direction so into the dish they went. I pulled them out and used them to create a really simple card.

Forgive my picture, for some reason I had a really hard time trying to photograph this. I'm guessing it was all the foil. This was the best picture of about 25 lol.  Anywho, I doodled around the edge of my card base with a black pen and added a black scallop rectangle with some foam tape to the center. I added some twine to my tag and adhered it at an angle. I added the hearts and called the card good! Easiest card I have done in quite awhile and I love how it turned it out!!

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Super cute card Stacy, so easy when you can pull parts from a "bowl or box" Love how you did the twine.

Chris Dring said...

This is gorgeous, Stacey! Love those bitty hearts with just a pop of color, and how you have the twine framing the tag! Awesome!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Awesome tag card! Fresh and modern! I am glad I don't have to clean up my craft room every time I do something....

Mimi said...

Geez, Stacy: your soapdish could be a card itself! Everything must be very "you"-- it coordinates without even trying! That is awesome! This is a fabulous card, and I must say that I really like the doodled edge. It adds ther perfect amount of funky-fresh-modern art.

hehehe... i have a pie tin that performs a similar function, lol... i feel so validated! :) this is gorgeous, great use of the "leftovers"! <3

Awesome use of all of this leftover pieces, we should do this more often, perhaps this way, our desks wouldn't be so messy, LOL!!
But I love this tag, those little hearts really pop and the foil "hello" is perfectly photographed!!!
Big Hugs,
