Tuesday - You Make My Day Card

happy Tuesday!

As I mentioned last week, I have been really really trying to use up some of my stash.  I have so much and I just need to sit down and use it up.  I have put myself on a HUGE spending freeze!   There are some paper collections that I would like to buy but NO can do.  I don't have the space soooo I am trying to use it all up!!   (or at least some of it- LOL!!)

This is a card that I made from my scraps from an American Crafts collection.  You can see the double page layout that I made HERE.  I used some of the tags and used them on the card.  I added some brads and some twine and I was done!  Easy Peasy!!
supplies
cardstock- bazzill
paper- american crafts chaps
tags- american crafts
brads- american crafts
twine- the twinery

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with a new project from Moxxie!  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Love your card and the fun border at the top. Great way to use up the stash! I am with you on the spending freeze. I picked up some things last week and have no where to put them so...... No more shopping. I'm trying to move some things around to make more room but then I realized....it's really time to just USE what I already have. :)

What a great card!!! When I do a card I always use scraps!!! It is so hard for me to cut into a full sheet of paper for a card! LOL!!!

Adorable card. Love the bright colors...I love Shimelle's idea of starter pages. I've done lots of those with my stash and have a pile to pull when I have photos. So much more fun and time to complete a page when the base and few layers are already done.
