Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop!


We are having a Blog Hop over at Practical Scrappers using up our stash to make Valentine's Day and Love projects! You should have arrived here from Kim Ryden, if not run back here and start from the beginning! 

I have 2 projects that I am very excited to share with you! 
The first project I created using specialty papers and embellishments that I have had in my stash and I just could not bring them together in a way I liked until now.  The hearts on the background paper are flocked and I thought a little would go a long way but I finally decided to use the whole sheet and go big or go home as the saying goes. 
"Together is Best"
Used a glitter sticker and added some scrap paper flags.
I stamped the circle then placed a heart on top.  I cut the heart from the paper behind the easy way to incorporate part of the paper without buying 2 sheets!  
Added some fun fabric embellishments along side the picture.  I just love how the blue sets off the red!  

My second project is a home decor piece that was inspired by this project on Pinterest.
I  *might* need this... Beautiful! The Giving Tree (8 x 10) Cut Paper Art. $30.00, via Etsy.
I saw this and thought what a great way to use up some of the scrap pieces I have in my stash! 
I used my silhouette and my daughter's arm!  
I love how it turned out!  
Thanks for stopping by and I would love to have you as a follower!  
Be sure to follow this link to the next designer, Charity Hotrum, on this amazing Hop! 

p.s.I hope these projects inspire you to take a look at your stash and use it!
