Shopping Our Stash: Strangest Crafty Purchase



Today at Shopping Our Stash we are asking you to use your strangest crafty purchase- you know, those things you just have to have because you are sure you will use it for a fabulous card or project, then it kinda just sits there and/or you wonder what ever possessed you to buy it!

I have a few such purchases on this card.

One:  the sentiment is a clear sticker I put on a piece of colored cardstock- I bought this ages ago as part of a pack I think, but couldn't figure out how to actually use it.  Then the card base is cream/ivory cardstock, which at one point I was sure I would use a ton of, so I bought a whole ream of it.  Now, some years later, I still have most of it.

So, put your thinking caps on and dig thru your stash and set something free you were sure you would use!

Ah, the lure of the 'but I like it!' purchase! I would have had to have this sentiment sticker too :)

This is so pretty and I love how you used the sticker! I really need to do this and attempt to make my stickers file a little smaller!
