BRAK - January

So for this month's round of BRAK - Birthday Random Acts of Kindness I decided to make some different cards instead of an assembly line like I ususally do!  I also decided to use scraps that I had saved to use later and just never used!  I think that is something I want to do more of this year - use what I have and not spend (we had to put in two transmissions, pay off a school debt sooner than expected, and some other mis-fortunes along the way). I am putting my self on a spending freeze so I can catch back up - but don't feel bad for me at all...you should see what all I have to work with!  I have my own little store!
But anyways - back to the point here...I made these cards to give and now I am not sure if I want to! Isn't that just typical??!!

Ink: {Ippity}
DSP: My Minds Eye (I think)
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Cardstock : Randome Brown Scraps
Stamp: Let Them Eat Cake - Stampin' Up!
Embellishments: Large Eyelets - Stampin' Up!

There will be more of these cards this week!!

*******CHALLENGE NEWS*******

  4. LOL Molly I think most of us would say we have our own little store in our craft rooms, and I am totally with you on the spending freeze at the moment. I love the paper you have used for your card today the blue is so pretty and goes so nicely with the neutral coloured cardstock. I think using up all your scraps is a great New Year's Resolution.

  10. I need to do this and put myself on a spending freeze. I have been so bad recently! Love the way you used your scraps, I have a ton sitting around that I always say I will use, but I always reach for a new sheet of DP... usually buy a new sheet of DP!
