I needed some thank you cards in early June, so I dipped into my stash of patterned kraft cardstock to make them. Here's a thank you card with a big flower...
|Project 1: patterned cardstock by Neenah Paper; floral paper & Bingo card by Simple Stories; paper leaves by Bo Bunny; stickers by Lily Bee; ink by Hero Arts; punch by Creative Memories; ribbon by Scrapbook Fantasies.|
...and here's a cute graphic one.

The card below was for my son's gym teacher/basketball coach.

As long as I had the autumn-themed supplies out already, I decided to go ahead and make an autumn-themed card, as well. :)
Then I went really wild and tried making a mixed media card on patterned kraft. This cardstock stood up to the application of wet media quite well. I am so pleased with how this card turned out; I'll definitely be trying something like this again soon!

Next I moved on to black cardstock, pairing it with gold for extra oomph.

I'm kind of in love with that hedgehog stamp, so I created another variation of this blank card. It could work for any occasion, proving that black cardstock is not just for Halloween.

But, then again, black cardstock is great for a "spooky" scrapbook page.

The funky B&W paper that forms the background of my next layout is from Witch Hazel, October Afternoon's Halloween collection.

I used some more Witch Hazel paper, as well as other autumnal products, in my tenth and last project.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my ten destashing projects. It has been a lot of fun to find creative uses for seasonal products.
