Technique Tuesday

Today's technique is brought to you by....my old stash. lol I have been trying so desperately to use up my stash. I have so much stuff! I'm sure I'm not alone. Can I get an Amen?

Recently, I cleaned out my scrapbook area to eliminate the clutter. It didn't help much. :) Sometimes, I get a little too attached to my old product for whatever reason and re-organize instead of destash. The fact remains, I have way too much stuff.
The other day, I found some clear epoxy stickers and clear buttons. Remember when they where all the craze? I decided to bring new life to them.
I have several sizes too. Because at the time, I needed every single kind I'm sure.
I brought out some scraps and some clear buttons too!I glued pieces of cute paper behind the clear buttons. A cute sprocket button:
I stuck the epoxy sticker to a mini fall tag too:Just cut around the extra tag....They make the cutest 3D embellishments!
There we have it, making the old new again!!
I used papers from Prima, Cosmo Cricket and Shabby Chic Craft's Mini Fall Tag.

AMEN!!!!!! That is too funny! I do the exact same thing. I try to clear out some stuff, then end up looking at it for 5 minutes and say" oh I could still use this". It's hard. I love everything. But the good thing, everything still gets organized. What a cute bunny. Great idea.
