Did you ever have a favorite line of patterned paper that you collected? And hoarded? And not used even after much time has passed?
For me, it started out with anything Love, Elsie. I mean finding this link and seeing that I missed out on a lot of the 2008 lines is kinda making me anxious right now! Hehe!
But seriously, I had bought every product from my local scrapbooking store. And went online for the other stuff that were unavailable. It took me a good year or two to probably start breaking into the packages and using them.
Then came the Dear Lizzy (Spring Line). I was smitten by the bright colors and girly themes. I am already partial to bicycles but flowers and tiny birds and a clothesline?? *GASP* I was in HEAVEN!
The difference is I used them right away as I had bought multiple pages of my favorite papers.
I mean, just take a look at my card for today. Isn't that just a lovely scene? The whole thing was created using a portion of the fabric paper. Which I've used many times before.
Cupcake Birgitta celebrating her birthday in the backyard ... LOVE! Just added some ribbon and a cut-out of this cupcake from a Basic Grey PP.
Speaking of parties in the backyard, I can't wait to start planning Mattie's 2nd birthday. Our backyard is pretty big.
Now, I just gotta think of a theme :).
