Use. Your. Stash!

No, seriously.

I know it sounds simple enough.
But so many of us are afraid to dig in!

I used to be that way until I realized how my brain works when it comes to crafting. 

Of course everyone is different, but I found out that I work best when I'm trying to use up papers and embellishments from the same collection.

For example, if I have graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments collection in from of me, I will only use products from that collection to create the majority if my projects. This takes guesswork out of coordinating products for my projects and I can create more effectively and effortlessly.

This project is one I made using only the Prima Lifetime collection (papers and embellishments). It's an altered cigar box.

In the event that I thought something was missing, I dug a bit more into my stash and added a few bits here and there.

Thank you for having me as a guest designer with the SoC blog this season! 

Your support has been much appreciated and I hope to see you around on my blog!
