This post is brought to you by the letter "C" :)

Hi everyone! :) 

This past weekend I continued my quest to work through my scrappy stash ... one manufacturer at a time :) 

This time I worked on the letter "C" for Creative Imaginations :) 

First I made a birthday card for my father-in-law :) 



And I had to make a sympathy card for a co-worker ... 
 


Awhile ago ... I made some book shadow boxes for my friend Elizabeth ... and I had some of the Creative Imaginations Harry Potter paper left over ... so I made  Elizabeth a Harry Potter mini album that she can add any photos to :) 











And as some of you know Brookie's 7th birthday is coming up in October ... we are having her party at our house ... and I thought it would be a nice gesture to make the parents that took the time to bring their kids to the party a "Thank You" gift for them :)  So I took some wooden children's blocks and made them into little photo blocks :)   So each parent(s) that come to Brookie's party will get one of these to take home with them :) 

 










And now MOST of my Creative Imaginations stash is GONE!!!! All of the Harry Potter paper is GONE and I only have a few sheets from other collections of theirs! :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  27. Wow, so many amazing projects [as usual] + using up so much of your stash!! Looks like a great accomplishment!! I definitely need to dig into my stash more, I am horrible about only using the newest things I've bought. Though I have made more of an effort to dig through my scrap bin lately + project life definitely helps with that because of the smaller scale :)

    Hugs~
