Finding new uses......

I have been looking around my scrap room lately almost cringeing thinking about all the product I have that I no longer use. A little while ago I did have a huge clean up and gave a lot of stuff away. But for those who don't know I use to own my own scrap store about 4 years ago. While having my own store I accumulated a LOT of stuff most of which still sits in containers or drawers in my room. I almost feel sick to think of how much money I have spent over the years on these supplies. These days I am much better with my purchases in the way that when I buy something I use it straight away. I dont feel guilty then we I purchase more!!!! However I still have all these things like rubons that I havent used so last night I pulled out a book of "transfers on the go" by K and Co which I have had for 4 years and decided to revamp them. One of these books had quotes and phrases in it...all with great different fonts so I cut out individual letters to create this funky background. What do you think????
They werent the easiest rubons to use but I love the effect. I have a huge bucket of old Making Memories rubons to get through now!!! It feels great to use old product and still be happy with the result!!!
Thanks for popping by and for your encouraging comments! Eb xx

This is a brilliant idea...got loads of alpha rub-on's myself, will be stealing this one ;) sadly I have loads of unused stuff that requires revamping. Gorgeous work!

love a good clean out - scary at times though isnt it. Luckily my hubby is convinced a sheet of pp is about 50c and the really expensive ones are $1.50. Hee hee hee if he ever found out I would be divorced and homeless!!!
Love this one of little maya

love how it turned out! I think we all have items we need to go back and re-use, things change far too quickly for me!
