Bon Voyage at Sweet Stampin' and a stash report!

OOh, the first of August &we've got sunshine so far this morning!  Could this be the start of better things to come for August?!  Let's hope so.  

We've a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' with a great theme of Bon Voyage and a fabulous prize from Crafty Ribbons.  Clearly I went very CAS with this one.  Some stamping & a little gentle colouring....job done!

Sentiment by Verve
Yacht by Stampin' Up

This card also counts in my 2015 goals/resolutions to make more one layer cards...yay!  That's a grand total of 15 so far and I definitely don't feel I've mastered them but I am trying!

Joining in some wonderful challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity 237 - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - No DP
Sister Act 117 - Anything Goes

We love to see you joining in so dig out those travel themed stamps & get creating!

Now for those of you that are interested, a used up stash update:

I can't believe I haven't done an update since February!  Which means I have forgotten many things I have used up.  Those things that live in my memory are:

  1. A pack of Remember When decoupage.  
  2. A card that is printed as a camera.  Purchased in Lakeland many, many years ago & unopened until recently, now just 3 more to use up!
  3. 2 different pieces of decoupage that I was given, not quite my taste so even more impressive to have used it
  4. I've also used up quite a few alphabet stickers, if anyone has any suggestions what to do with excess X's & Z's please do share...
  5. A whole 12 x 12 sheet of a hideous colour card!
  6. Quite a few rub on transfers
  7. Several pre cut cricut pieces
  8. I've finally broken in to a 12 x 12 paper pad whose colours I adore but find incredibly difficult to use.
  9. A pack of 3D Cricket toppers & 3D car toppers
  10. Shapes from those mahoosive Papermania boxes (1500 shapes per box!)
  11. Even some peel off stickers!
It's making absolutely no difference space wise in my house yet but I am nothing if not persistent lol!

The Genius (Occasionally!) xx

Abi, oh my goodness, you are a rock star! I can't believe all the stash you've used up! I have so many little bits and bobs filling up my craft room I SO need to get to using up! Inspiring hun and so is your gorgeous CAS card. I have 'I am sailing' running through my head now for some strange reason. Gotta love a bit of Rod Stewart though! LOL. Hugs, Wends x

Fabulous one layer card Abi! These are so hard to's just too tempting to add (unnecessary) stuff!
Wish I had the self discipline to use up some of my old just keeps growing...
Have a lovely weekend, hope the sun continues to shine!

Fabulous dreamy card, Abi, you've most certainly mastered the art of OLC! And well done on using the old stash, I must say that it's a bit difficult, there are so many lovely shiny new things out there, enjoy the rest of the weekend, sweetie!

Love and hugs

Geez... I missed a lot of gorgeous cards. I love the simple beauty of this classy and timeless card. CAS is always a favourite of mine and despite what some people think, I believe it is one of the hardest styles to do. You however, appear to have mastered it... I really do love this card.
