Another Blast from the Past!

Good Morning!  It's time for another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!

This month, Taylor's theme was Collector's Anonymous. Now, I am/have been a hoarder of many things, but the worst are ribbon and Designer Paper.  I would keep buying this incredible paper, and NEVER use it.  I have come to the realization that this great paper is MUCH better being used, then collected, so I have made big strides on reducing my enormous pile of paper.  (I even sold some in a garage sale!)

I started out by stamping the onesie, from Hangin' Out, onto a piece of DP from MME Stella & Rose Hazel, then cutting it out.  I mounted it onto a circle of Kraft cs, then a square of the DP.

I did follow Sankari's awesome sketch (for the most part!), I just omitted the sentiment panel, and chose to have it right on the DP.

Those gorgeous pearl brads are from American Crafts, and they had been sitting untouched for too long in my drawer, and they worked perfectly!  I finished the card off with my Little Open Scallop Die-namic from MFT along the panel for a little extra detail!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to see all the hoppers' creations!

Be sure to check out the list below to see all the other hoppers today!

I LOVE this card - sooo very sweet and I adore those brads going up the side ! I know exactly what you mean about hoarding paper! There is so much and I always feel like I don't have enough "In case" I need to do a certain project (that I never end up doing!) So good to know I am not alone!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)
