Use It Tuesday #36-Uncut Paper

It's time for a new challenge over at Use It Tuesday and this time we're digging into our stash for some uncut paper.



I'm sure all of you have uncut paper stashed away but the harder challenge is to look for the pretty papers that you may have saved but feel that it is too beautiful to use. For me, this was quite the challenge as I absolutely love saving papers of any kind and would be perfectly happy just looking at them rather than using them. When I dug into my stash, I had a half pound stack of handmade papers as well as Japanese papers from an art store I got months ago. This was what I finally made out of them.


I also had a beautiful pack of Cavallini Decorative Tape my husband gave me after I talked to him endlessly about washi tape-I'm glad I finally got to use it. Everything except the white gel pen used to write the sentiment has been hoarded. 

Now it's your turn! Come play along at Use It Tuesday and show us some of the beautiful papers you've been stashing away ;) Don't forget to tell us what you hoarded supplies you used. You have until Friday, August 3rd to link up.

I love this Victoria! I love stamps and embossing folders with sentiments laid out like this, I never once thought to do it myself - great idea!!! And the papers, not to mention washi tape, look so pretty! :)
