Use that stash - IACW

Here's my post from It's A Creative World yesterday: I don't know about you but after nearly 9 years of card making and papercrafts I seem to have accumulated a phenomenal amount of stash and even though some of it is not "the in thing" or what I would normally use I've decided that I do need to use it.

I have a load of pre-folded card blanks in the strangest colours dating back about 7 or 8 years and have challenged myself to use them all so made a start with these cards.

See - even old stash can look OK!! Why not drag out some of your old, unloved and forgotten stash and see what you can do with it.

I'm with you!! Today I used Cosmo Crickets Love Notes from '06, although that might be cheating because I totally adore it! But I have used my out of style stuff lately, too. I'm not sure my results were as cute as yours, though!
