I often feel like the odd lady out, scrapping with some of my old old product. Truth is- I don't craft shop a lot, and I have been given so much beautiful stuff I have hoarded away never to be used. I have totes of stuff, organized, but stashed away, all in the effort to make more room for the new stuff. So I find that when I have the mojo to use something old, it's fun to pull out something and see what I can come up with. And mix it with something new as well.
The old- the sweet girl words ( We R Memory Keepers) and rattle. some vintagey looking additions to my white flower - sewing paper punched flowers and a mother of pearl button
The new- ( to me ) Martha Stewart papers, cardstock punched with an EK scallop, a scallop circle flower I punched with my new EK scalloped circle punch ( from white cs I embossed with my cuttlebug and swiss dots folder) and kraft cs.
Another card, done in the same colors and with another word from the WRMK package.
I liked that the peachy pink papers matched the word colors soo well, I wanted to make sure I used these words with this paper. I embossed my kraft cs with my swirls embossing folder. Added a sewing paper and silk flower with button and twine. Under the flower I created a layered set of angel wings with my ek scallop circle punch, I simply cut the two circles to make them look like wings, layering on the cut off part on top of the larger piece with foam tape.
More Martha paper, and I added the two baby safety pins as well.
Have a terrific day!
