something old, something new

Here’s a fun challenge to help you use up your scrapbook stash and enjoy your favorite new goodies at the same time:  create a project (scrapbook page, card, tag, decor, etc) using something old and something new.  Of course, old and new are relative terms, but let’s say for this challenge that “old” means something not from this year, and “new” means something you purchased this year.  Sound good?

For this challenge I grabbed some goodies from one of my all time favorite older We R collections, Good Day Sunshine.  I combined those with some of the new colors of Washi Tape released this year.

I love to have spare cards and tags on hand for friends, neighbors, birthdays, weddings, etc, so I created this friendship tag with my “old” and “new” products.

After cutting my tag shape out of one of the papers from the 4×6 pad, I layered some more paper, washi tape, embossed stickers, and chipboard stickers.

To finish off the tag I added a couple of glitter brads, an eyelet, and some baker’s twine.  Easy peasy, and I used up some of my stash–a win/win for sure!
