It is time once again for the Design D.I.V.A.S. of Facebook to have our monthly Oldies But Goodies (OBG) Blog Hop! Every month we create projects using toys, tools, stamps, papers, or anything else we haven't used for at least 6 months. I know I'm not alone when I say that we probably have enough OBGs to have these blog hops for many months to come!
The hop started with Melissa at Inkclinations, who is not only very talented, but coordinated this hop for us! Thank you, Melissa! Since I am second in the order you need to go back only one spot to catch up. (Even if I was at the bottom of the order you would want to go back to the start, because there are so many very talented papercrafters in our little group.) By the end of the hop you, too, will be dusting off your OBGs and wondering why they've been sitting on the shelf so long!
I chose a Cuttlebug embossing folder/die set called Persia that I purchased well over 6 months ago. After dusting off the package I used it to make a set of notecards.
Ecru and blue cardstock was cut in half to make 2 A6 cards. These were simply run through the Cuttlebug with the embossing folder.
Then I ran the die through with the ecru and blue. On the one die is the peacock, border, medallion and a leaf. Here I have the peacock and border in the contrasting colors.
Here is the medallion and border die cuts. I didn't use the leaf in this set. It looked very lonely by itself, yet didn't quite fit it with each of the other dies.
Easy Peasy!! Six notecards with no fuss, no muss! These will be great when I need a quick note, or even box up a set as a gift! I'm definitely wondering why I let this sit so long!
Ok, now on to the next stop. Lorie is a Peachy Keen gal at The Thinkin' Spot and she is next. I know she has something fantastic for you to see! I hope you enjoy our hop. Leave me a little love and tell me what you would dust off today. Better yet, I'll come visit your blog and see for myself!
