I went with a very straightforward sample this week. The sentiment is Verve's One Day Plain Jane. (Plain Janes are Verve's very affordable line of stamp singles. Cheaper than a latte, and lasts a whole lot longer!). I stamped onto a Spellbinders Classic Square die-cut and layered over a Labels Sixteen die-cut. Before removing the die, I sponged on a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen) to age it a bit. Other details include some thick gold hemp, an open scallop border (MFT), distressing, stitching, and a pair of buttons (also ancient, by Stampin' Up).
I'm pretty sure this focus on using up old stuff will fly out the window as soon as some of the new summer CHA goodies hit my mailbox (crossing my fingers for today!). What are you most anxiously awaiting?
Also, any Girl Scout moms out there with a cute idea for a summer day camp swap? My daughter has a flip-flop idea in the works, but we're all ears to other ideas -- thanks!
