Robi’s Closet — Coming Out of It

I admit it, I am a saver. Okay, a saver who could easily be labeled a hoarder. I have vowed to clean up my act. So periodically I will go into the deep, dark recesses of my closet and pull out something I have been saving, hoarding, stashing. And use it.  And even give some of it away! I hope to make this a regular feature.

For my first attempt, I pulled out this cute scrapbook set from Hot Off The Press.

I’m not much of a scrapbooker, but won’t these make darling cards? Here I go….

I cut a piece of the scrapbook paper to completely cover the card front, slapped on the pop-up sticker and called it done. But could I leave it at that? Nooooooooooo. So I punched both sides of a white scrap piece (Martha Stewart punch) and stuck that down. Still not enough, so I stamped the birthday cake (Stampin’ Up!) and colored with Sparking H2Os (which photographed with glare. You can’t even see the Ranger Gold Ice Stickles on the cake and candles. Gotta work on those photo skills.) OK, now I could move on. Using a scrap piece I made this:

(stamped images all by Hero Arts. More Stickles, too.)

… and these tags:

Whew! Good day’s work, eh?

I hope you come back next week!
