This file had a good amount of supplies, including different papers and embellishments, but there was a lot of variation. First of all, I had quite a bit of glitter cardstock, which I over-bought one year at Christmastime. I also had a few random animal stickers (a koala, a rhinoceros, a turtle, and a zebra) to use up. And last, but not least, I had a lot of flowery/feminine items from Lawn Fawn. Could I rise to the challenge and use this assortment of supplies? See for yourself...
I started with the glitter cardstock. For my first project, "Sparky Show," I tore a free-form hole in a sheet of green glitter cardstock and placed the sheet atop my layout as a frame.

No surprise, I used the remainder of the torn green glitter cardstock for my next layout, "Carnival."
I only had a half sheet of blue glitter cardstock, so it became a card base. I decided that some glitter is good, but more is better, so I smoothed Stickles glitter over the banner and bracket frame.
Next, I worked on using the animal stickers. My husband loves Australian wildlife, so the koala sticker made its way onto an anniversary card.

The rhino and turtle worked perfectly on this page about my son's imaginary safari.

And you've already seen how I incorporated the zebra sticker into a mini album last month. Now I've used all my animal stickers!

The flowery, feminine supplies from Lawn Fawn were great for creating a pair of Women's Day cards. This Russian holiday is celebrated on March 8, which is one of the few Russian dates which I can spell out with English letters--8ое марта.

Pink and purple are colors that I seldom use, but the art journal page above gave me a chance to use Lawn Fawn alphabet stickers in these colors.

There were also some squares of pink/red feminine paper among my Cosmo Cricket supplies, and they found a home on another art journal page.
I'm really enjoying the process of de-stashing, and I feel like it's making me think about my supplies in a more creative way. I hope you're enjoying reading about my de-stashing adventures. Thanks for dropping by my blog today!
