From the bottom of the Barrel

 I love to pull from the bottom of the barrel. It is such a challenge sometimes. As you can see by my room I have a LOT of stuff to play with. I have hoarded little things all my life. I have vowed that will no longer be the case. I will use anything and everything that works for my projects.
 So far I have been true to my statement. The card and box are perfect examples of this. I made these for one of my you tube supporters and a new sweet friend.
Most everything you see here my friend Theresa~ from sent to me. here is the list of supplies
4 x 4 paper mache box
 Enchantments-Mini mulberry roses in black and white,
Recollections-burlap & bling swirls
Creative Imaginations paper-I.O.D
Karla001- Rina bling
Tim Holtz- spinners, brads,film strip & walnut distress ink
Making Memories- letter brad(U) and key hole, stamp- friend
Simple Stories- graceful card
Maya Road- game number piece
Michael's- the chipboard butterfly- 1.50 bin

 I love how the box turned out, My favorite part is the film strip over the word graceful. I hope she likes it too.
Now for the card
4.5 x 5 inch card
Card base is Recollections-kraft, Burlap,bling flourishes, letter, number stickers and small black lace trim
Creative Imaginations-I.O.D. papers

 Inside the card it says You're the best. Cut from the paper.

Thank you for stopping by, see you with more projects soon

Both projects are stunning.
I love those film strips, such neat embellishments.
I am proud of you for sticking with your goal of using your hoarded stash.
I need to work on that....but then again you have a bigger hoard vault then I do, lol.
