Shimelle's class

Well I have taken the scrapping bull by the horns and signed up for my first online class with Shimelle. I was lucky enough to have some funds in my Paypal account so I am now part of 'Something from almost nothing' it cost £10 and is all about ideas for using up existing stash, see Shimelle's blog for more info.

Stash that will be used includes:-
Patterned paper
Metals (brads, eyelets, label frames - that sort of thing)
Stickers (both letters and designs)
Page protectors
..........................................all of which I have!!!

As part of our pre class prep (it starts on Wednesday by the way!) we had to take photographs of some of our stash (or all of it!!??!!). I am still working on my crafting corner so I have been trying to reorganise everything so I previously blogged pics of my buttons and 12x12 collection. Yesterday I took these:- (these will be my 66/365)
6 x 6 papers/card with some packets of embellishmentsStickers (mostly untouched K & Co as far too nice to use!) peeloffs + rub onsscrapbooks (mostly gifts and all unused!)

and 3 draws of embellishmentsthere is more of course, much of which is unorganised chaos, so no pics of that!
Some of my stash I really don't like very much, it is from those bargainous packs or mystery boxes from a couple of years ago. Some I absolutely love, the beautiful K & Co Papers with the matching embellishments so lush, mmm can you salivate over stash?? Yep I think you can and therefore it is really hard to actually cut into them or even open the packaging LOL!!!
I did manage to use up some stash yesterday by making 3 really quick and easy cards, I forgot to take any snaps of the first 2 and here is the third, a simple New Home card.
