Let's get started. Today I am showcasing the old Notebook paper (Retired), pewter frames, brads, and pewter badge buttons.

Here I've stamped a sentiment but it needed to pop a little more so I added a pewter frame around it with bards. I then added a touch of black ribbon collection (On Sale this month for $4!) to draw the eye.

I added the same frame on the right page and then added some pewter badges around it.
I put the pewter badges on the left page too. I fed the same ribbon along the bottom and using the scallop punch I made a faux-metal frame behind the words "These" that I stamped out with the A-Typeface stamp set.
Now hop on over to Michelle's Blog for more ideas of using up your stash.


  1. Love it! I have a couple of the metal frames, need to get them out!

  2. pretty layout spread, Rachel. I'm going to use the scallop circle thing to mimic the metal frame idea!

  3. So many great ideas for me to use. Thank you.
