SOS: Front and center!

Ahhh... a stash-shopper's dream challenge!

This week, the team at
  Shopping Our Stash is challenging you guys to use something already on your desk...
Front and Center!
Get it?

So scan your immediate view and use something in reach!

Here is my showcase project:

...and here is another made with a sister panel and more desk-dwellers:

This is a picture of my desk before I started.  Don't judge.  I'm still moving in.  (Let's see how long I can stretch out that excuse...)

Supplies and notes:

  • The geometric panels have been on my desk for months.  They are watercolor paper inked with Dylusions sprays and a Heidi Swapp stencil.
  • The various leaves were punched last week with my newly-purchased dies out of scraps.  They were still sitting on my desktop...
  • The sentiments were also already out (front and center) from a card last week.
Aren't these cool festive cards?  Whoop-whoop!

Come on!  Show us something front and center!


  1. Oh my Gosh you took a picture of my desk lol. I have about that much space to work too. Awesome cards. love that panel so vibrant in colour.

  2. I am so glad that you figured out the title of this challenge, as I couldn't think of anything else to call it! LOL! These are two fabulous cards, Mimi! And holy crap, look at your desk! Now I don't feel so bad about mine! LOL!

  6. Ahh!! Miss Mimi, that desk is a crafter's dream!!! it looks kind of like mine right about now, LOL!! I can never keep this room neat because I'm doing something every day but to me, that is the beauty of it all. Fabulous find on this geometrical panels, love the colors and the details on both cards.
