I have almost finished sorting out my craft room. I am working on filling the last box of older supplies for the thrift shop. I think I have pared everything down enough to fit into the new room, which is about 3/4 the size of the one I have now.
I scrapbook 12x12 as well as 8x8,, so a zillion pieces of DP as well as cardstock in those sizes keeps my stash very full. I managed to donate all my 6x6 books and page protectors, but probably should do the same with the 8x8! That would free up a lot more space...but I sort of like working with that size...sigh...
One of the bonuses about going through stash to purge and then organize the rest, is that you find hidden treasures. Treasures you ferretted away in years past and then forgot about! I was delighted to find a 12x12 file pocket full of card kits that I made up a couple of years ago (or maybe even longer).
There were enough precut designs for three different card designs and several of each style. What fun that was to find! Perfect for Rudolph Day which runs on Sarn's blog Stamping For Pleasure. You have from the 25 till the end of each month to make 2 Christmas cards, the same design or different designs, whatever you chose. Show them both on the same blogpost and link up to her challenge...easy peasy!
I made 4 cards this month, for Rudolph Days. It was easy as I had the design right there in that found treasure chest. I did vary the card bases though, as I am trying to use up the prescored and folded bases I have already made up.
I tried a cream, green and a brown card base,Which do you like best? I think my fave is the brown...have to do the inserts still, but should probably just use a simple white or cream insert.
Card base - prescored and folded bases I made from stash a long, long time ago

EF - not sure the make but the burgundy card is a damask embossing folder and the brown square is i think, a Stampin' Up version of Swiss Dots.
