Don't know what you got til it's gone......

UUGGGHHH......I just deleted all that I had typed out.  Well, here we go again and THIS time I won't delete it all.....LOL

What I was trying to say earlier, before I deleted it all, was that I did not know what I had till it was gone and no longer available.  I get so caught up in all the NEW and CURRENT products that I completely forget about all the super cool papers and stamp sets that make their debut for a short time only.

Such as the paper pack and stamp set that I have used to create these cards.  The papers are from a CTMH campaign that came out a while back called "Serendipity" and ONE of the stamp sets that I used came from a card kit campaign called "Just Because".  While I LOVED both of the specials, I grew tired of them during the month that they debuted and had not thought of them since......

WHEW almost deleted it all again.....I really need to stop typing and go do some laundry.....LOL

Even though the cards are fairly simple, I thought they turned out pretty sweet!

Supplies used are:
Paper: Serendipity, Chocolate, Bamboo and Colonial White Textured CS
Stamps: Thank You, Just Because, Boutique Borders, Childhood Portrait
Embellishments: Chocolate and Colonial White Ribbon, Bitty Sparkles, Basic Buttons, Chocolate and Colonial White Waxy Flax, and White Hemp
Tools: Wishes card program for the cutting dimensions and directions for the workshop

Thanks SO much for taking the time to stop by and check out my latest creations!

I hope that I have inspired you to dig through your craft supplies and pull out those long forgotten papers, embellishments and stamp sets and use them!  You might be surprised at the treasures that you will find!

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!  Stay safe this holiday weekend too.......

Jen those cards are so pretty! I have never seen those papers or stamps before so they are totally new to me and I love them. You are inspiring me to "use what I have" through all of your great blog posts.

Great cards. Really like the color scheme and the stamps that you used. And I am also guilty of forgetting to pull out "old" stamps and papers to use.
