I could not have been more excited when I heard that Lisa Fulmer was writing a new book called "Craft Your Stash"! I was giddy with excitement when she asked me if I'd write a little review about her new book...So whether you've stumbled upon this review from Facebook, or you're following along the Book Tour and Blog Hop...YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS BOOK!
I gotta tell you...she had me hooked with the great sections at the beginning of the book with color theory, storage and organization, projects and crafting your stash! Those sections are wonderful...and chocked full with loads of cool ideas!
Whether you're an experienced crafter or a beginner...these sections at the front of the book will inspire you, and prompt you with lots of new ideas and new ways to make cool crafts with things you may already have on hand!
The project photos are beautiful! This book hit really close to home for me...
I am a craft hoarder too (there I said it). It's so bad in fact, that I have a chest of drawers that I bought for the sole purpose of concealing my paper habit...the drawers are 13" wide and 16" deep (deep and wide enough to hold reams of paper). Here's the proof...
And from the minute I opened the new book...I was inspired...no, compelled, almost as if hypnotized into going to my big chest of paper to CRAFT MY STASH!
It was this picture that got me...a simple card set, made with leftover papers.
I could not stop myself...Lisa included some awesome card sketches in the book that make "crafting the stash" simple...and inspiring.
I love, love love, the sketches...
And, since I have collected more Christmas paper than Mrs. Claus...I decided to make a few Christmas cards.
I even pulled out the antique jelly jars filled with vintage buttons, ( I only get them out for special craft occasions).
And I just followed the sketches and instructions...it was too simple!
Before I realized, I'd created a cool set of Christmas cards, that seemed both clean and simple and kind of retro at the same time, owing to the papers, ribbons, and vintage buttons I'd used.
Get this book (subliminal message) it's awesome and will inspire you...
to CRAFT YOUR STASH!
I also saw about 10 other projects that I need to do...because they're so awesome.
