Will you be my Valentine? :)

Hi everyone :)


Thanks for all the love on my posts of me using up my scrappy stash :) One thing we all have to remember -- we all scrapbook for different reasons ... but the one MAIN reason I always hear is "I scrapbook to leave my family a legacy" -- so in 50 years when my grandkids are looking at my scrapbook pages -- guess what??? All of our papers, embellishments etc are going to be OLD!! :) So use it up my friends -- it isn't going to be doing us any good sitting in a drawer waiting to be used :)




I wanted to share some more Valentine cards I made for Winter's "Cards from the Heart Card Drive" :)



I used some Authentique papers on the Valentine Cards :)









I also wanted to share some cards I made for a co-worker :) Her daughter and her BFF are moving to NYC next month and she wanted so cards to give them before they left :)  I used Bo Bunny's Apple Cider collection on these cards :)



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

A week of de-stashing -- the final day with the final results!! :)

Hi everyone :)


For the past 5 days -- I have been sharing a story on how I have taken just one bin that had some of my scrappy stash in it and what I accomplished with that one bin of scrap goodies!!!


Here is the bin that I am de-stashing!! :)


Here are the last of the layouts I made with the goodies from the bin pictured above :)











Look at little ADAM -- where did the time go!?!?!?!? He will be 16 in a few weeks!!! :)







 Ok -- so today is the last day I am sharing the bin that carried some of my scrappy stash, and what I made with it!!! 
Everything that I have shared this week came from this bin :)




I made a 

Recipe Book

8 Valentine's Day Cards

and

13 layouts!!! All in about a week's time!!! 

Go me!!! :)

And here is what I have LEFT OVER from the bin above --



I used so much of my scrappy stash that what I have left over fits into my scrappy rolling bag!!!! 

Feels so good to use up all that older scrappy stash!!! :)

Here is what I did with the white bin --



It now holds some of my mini-albums I have made of the years!! Better than having them all over the place!!! :)


I hope I have inspired some of you to dig into some of your older scrappy stash!! Use it up my friends :)


And before I head out -- I want to share my monthly photo with my babies in honor of Aleida Franklin :)



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