Happy New Year craft friends. I did great last year trying to use stuff up from my tote of items and hope to get more of that tote used up this year. I also added to my resolution for crafting to color and use up a huge stack of already stamped and printed off digital images that I have been collecting over the last several years. I need to get that stack of images colored and used on cards because it has grown out of control.
What is your craft goal for 2021? I would love to know what you plan on doing this year for your crafting.

USEIT2021 - little girl
I am continuing my journey this year to use up a tote full of items. This year I will also get to working on using images that I have already stamped out and need to color and get added to cards. I am not sure I can get them all used this year but I will start the journey.
This little girl was in the tote. She is 3 dimensional and super cute and I thought this sentiment was perfect for an encouragement card.
|MIX414 - Snowy Day|
When I saw today's challenge I knew exactly what image I wanted to use. This cute snowman from DRS Designs was just perfect with this sentiment.
I stamped the snowman and the background scene then I stamped the silhouette image on a mirror image stamp. I then colored with copics added the frozen pond and added stickles and white gel pen to the pond.
I grabbed another sheet of the Asian themed wrapping paper my MIL gave me that I am trying to get used up. It is gorgeous paper but really thin. I changed the layout just a bit I centered the paper and trimmed the edges then I heat embossed the sentiment in white and added it across the center.
CAS618 - Snow
I used the wax resist technique and a snow emboss folder to create the BG on my card. i then stamped the image and sentiment in blue and die cut the banner. The card was finished off with the ribbon and sequins.

USEIT2020 - Heartfelt Creations card kit
I am trying to get the rest of the old card kits from Heartfelt Creations used up. This one was perfect for today's colors.
I sponged the colors on the house and flowers, leaves and stones. I then shaped the flowers and leaves and layered the pieces. I finished off the flowers with some stickles.
I have always wanted to try this card fold because I want to make one for my hubby for his birthday coming up. This was so much fun to make and super quick too.
Cut the papers and created the cube card following the directions in the Tutorials.
WT825 - Ring in a new start. Using bells, bell flowers, rings....an encouragement, motivation or celebration card
I have had this stamp set for over a year and thought I needed to get it used. This challenge is perfect to show case the beautiful layered bells in the set. I am also working on Christmas cards for next year. My goal is 2 a week to get them all made early so I can beat the last minute rush for cards.
