Sticking to it!

Sentiment and Die from PTI "Inspired: Prayer"


Hi everyone : ) some time ago I challenged myself to "Use it or Loose it" regarding the massive amount of card making supplies I own!!  I am ashamed to admit that challenge was way back in April.  See that post HERE.  I have not done very well with my challenge but I'm "Sticking to it"  I'm giving myself 30 more days to use as many of my stickers as I can and then the rest of my BULGING tote of stickers is OuTTa HeRe!!

My cards today all use stickers from a sticker sheet and the Trix bunny from "Trix Are For Kids" fame!! : )  I'm happy to say only one bunny was left on the sheet when I completed this series : )



My post today is in response to the challenge at Curtain Call.  I just loved this inspiration photo.  Every one of my cards in this series uses this photo as inspiration : )

Die from Penny Black "Feel Better 51-221"




Die from Penny Black "Rejoice 51-251"


Stencil and Die from Penny Black "Love Expressions 51-025",  "Dotlets 25-007"


Die by Penny Black "Love to Travel 51-224"


That is it for me today : )   I have stayed crazy busy this week working on a New Release and BIG SALE for my scarf business, neckStyles™ that goes live on Tuesday the 12th.

I am also trying to get caught up on my commenting but please bear with me while I wrestle the clock and the BLOGGER ROBOT NAZI!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

These are ALL so cute Patti, and kudos to you for using up those Stickers! I'm afraid I gave up and threw all mine away a couple years ago and haven't missed them Yet! Of course I didn't have any cute Trix bunnies either! Great job my friend!

sandie said...

Jerrie said...

AAH, this trix bunny card made me smile. I think you have hit the challenge at Curtain Call spot on! It is so cute that you continued on and made all 4 cards and used up you stash! Have a crafty day.

Happy Dance said...

Just goes to show that "Trix are[n't just] for kids!" You've worked some fun magic with these stickers, and yay for you using them up! I've got two scrapbooks to make then all the stickers will go to the little girls who like to craft with grandma. That will clear out a whole huge space in my craft pantry. Each of your cards is an exercise in creativity! I love the simplicity of each, and they're all just wonderful. Good luck with your upcoming new release, too. Fabulous cards!! Bev

Jeanne said...

Oh my gosh, when I saw the first card, I thought...oh wow, that looks like the Trix bunny! How funny is that? Or sad, maybe as I am definitely showing my age. LOL As I read the post though, I found I was right! And I applaud you for sticking to your challenge. The cards you created using those stickers look fantastic! You certainly do well when you challenge yourself, that is for darn sure. I giggled at the last one. Perfect final card in the series! :) I hope you don't stress about catching up. I, for one, completely understand when life gets in the way. But I'm not sure what a blogger robot nazi is? If it's the blurb when you are trying to submit your comment, just ignore it and press publish your comment. I never do anything with it and my comments show up. I learned that from Darnell. Have a great weekend! Hugs! :)

Diane Jaquay said...

Omg, Patti, these are DELIGHTFUL!!! I love seeing totally unexpected creativity like this, never thought I'd wake up on a Saturday morning and find the Trix bunny in my inbox lol! You've combined the stickers so perfectly with the sentiments, WOW, just WOW!

designbydonna said...

These are all so cute. The bunny images are so expressive and you have captured that wonderfully.

Helen F. said...

Oh myyyyy! I just love every one of your bunny cards, Patti! Great idea to challenge yourself to use up your stash :-)
The dies from Penny Black are awesome, going to check those out now. Thanks for enabling, my friend!

Verna Angerhofer said...

So darling are those bunny cards. You used those stickers so creatively. I just have to giggle when I see the antics he shows on each of them. These are fun as well as uplifting.

*Vicki* said...

This little Trix bunny is so adorable Patti!! I love all the different ways you've used him on your designs!! Very creative and fun my friend!! Thanks for the inspiration! HUGS

Theresa Krout said...

You had to know that I LOVE THESE BUNNIES! Sure it looks like Trix bunny but all bunnies are adorable (and I should know I have 21 babies and 7 adults) Some more adorable than others but I have to say that you made every one of these bunnies totally adorable. I have to get these stickers!

Mac Mable said...

You are so talented and so clever at how you use your goodies....Absolutely love the collection of cards, fun, thoughtful and inspirational. The last card, the bon voyage card made me laugh out loud x You leave the friendliest and kindest comments on my blog and they are very much appreciated x

Lynne in NI said...

Go you, congrats on using up your stickers (is that last unused one not really bugging you?!) You've paired them with perfect sentiment too :)

Nancy said...

I really have no words for how much these cards made me smile! I am soooooooo glad you didn't part with these stickers, we sure would have missed out! Stupendous my friend!

Kim Heggins said...

Oh my goodness....just love that sweet rabbit and all your incredible and creative cards. Good for you to do your best in using your stash!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Wow, Patti, these are all sooooo cute! You came up with so many awesome card designs for your Trix bunny stickers! And the sentiments are perfect! As for the Robot Nazi, I get it when I'm doing a lot of commenting at one time, like in blog hops or after getting behind on my blog visiting. The only way around it (that I've found) is to spread my commenting over the course of the day or even into the next day. It's extremely annoying!

Joyce said...

What a cute bunch of cards you made. Good for you for using all of those stickers. It makes me want to run out and buy a whole bunch of stickers. Tee hee. Use it or lose it is such a good idea--I'd like to do the 'use it' but I know I'd have trouble with the 'lose it' part.

Sheri Gilson said...

Super cute cards...love the Trix bunny! Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Curtain Call!

Birgit said...

Oh my goodness Patti, you never cease to amaze me! I love each and one of these adorable cards! At first I thought the Rejoice card was my favorite until I kept scrolling and saw the Hugs & Kisses one.... An then Bon Voyage... I love them all! You're just too clever. ;0)

Leigh Penner said...

These are all super fun, Patti! Way to use your stickers!

LauraJane:) said...

Adorable use of all those TRIX bunny stickers!!

Nora N. said...

These are STICKERS? Totally amazing design. I would not even have a clue as how to use these on my cards. You did a fabulous job. I should do this challenge with the my papers. My husband keeps talking about moving in the next few years and it scares me to think about cleaning up and getting rid of stuff that I craft with.

cm said...

Time for a catch up...how, how, how do I get so far behind! Hectic days to blame. Your Trix bunny is absolutely charming in his vavous poses on your charming, smile-making cards! Love them! Cheering and applauding your 'use it or lose it' ambitions, especially since the 'use it' portion means someone will be receiving something wonderfully special from wonderful YOU!
Hugs~c

PS: Speaking of 'something'; whatever marvelous treat you sent my way has not made an appearance, which makes me sad and grrrrr, because I'm ever soooo curious! We can still hope...Sometimes I wonder about our mail service here. A couple times, I've 'lost' items, only to have them appear two-three MONTHS later. Craziness! So, for now, THANK YOU for reaching out; you are such a sweetheart!!
