Get those rub-ons off the shelf...

Do you have too many rub-on's in your stash?

Do you buy beautiful rub-ons and hoard them for "something special" only to find out a year later that you have even more beautiful rub-ons waiting to be used and the pile hasn't gotten any smaller?

I'm guilty of both questions. Yes, I admit it - I'm a rub-on hoarder.

Earlier this month I spent one morning pulling rub ons off the craft shelf and decided to create with them. Something! So I cut several pieces of kraft paper in the same size and decided to use the rub ons - somehow - on the kraft paper and make some cards.

Here's what I came up with.

Supplies: Rub Ons and Patterned Paper- My Mind's Eye, Card- Making Memories; Chipboard- 7Gypsies; Glimmer Paint: Tattered Angels; Kraft Cardstock - Stampin' Up; Alpha Stickers: Making Memories

Supplies: Rub Ons- Hambly and Basic Grey; Patterned Paper - October Afternoon; Vintage Image- Crafty Secrets; Cardstock- Stampin' Up (Kraft), Bazzill (red); Pearls- Kaisercraft; Alpha Stickers: Making Memories

Supplies: Rub Ons- Creative Imaginations; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Pearls - K & Co; Alpha Stickers: Making Memories, Cardstock - Stampin' Up (Kraft); Other - buttons.

I hope this gives you some ideas to pull out your rub ons (at least the ones that have almost passed their expiration date). If you create anything after reading this blog, I'd love to see - so post a link in the comments section.

Have a wonderfully crafty week and thanks for stopping by.
