Crafty Creations Challenges - #204 Something New

Happy New Year to one and all!! I couldn't believe how long it's been since my lost post - wow, the time has just flown by!!

Today's new theme at Crafty Creations Challenges is:

Something New

 I was lucky enough to have an American holiday just before christmas and was able to help santa choose some (ok LOTS!!) fab pressies for me!!  So this was a great opportunity to play with some of my new toys!!

I got this Front & Centre Die from Papertrey Ink - I used it to make a little gift bag.  (I'm going to make a few more of these to house little cupcakes)!  Got that Bazzill Basics card stock in the sale so that's new too!!  Once I made the little bag, i thought it needed a card to go with - so voila!!  I used another new edger die on my card. The sentiment SWEET is from a new Papertrey Ink stamp set - I mixed it up with a MFT sentiment on the card. The Simple Stories paper pad is not new - but it had't had enough love yet!! lol

As always we have a very generous sponsor, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More is offering a prize for one lucky random winner - so why not show us something NEW?! bx

Hi Bernie, such fabulous creations!! love your combo of papers!!

Lovely to get some new stash, love what you have done with it!

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my blog, I am afraid that one of them got lost in cyber space, I pressed publish, but as yet it has not appeared!! I do appreciate all your tips regarding my scraps!! I have tackled them before, and dip into them a lot, but the trouble was i created new ones faster than I used up current ones .. so no more scraps, if I cut into a new bit of paper, I plan to use it all up!! so all your little tips will be invaluable!! thanks!! hugs Juls
