Shopping Our Stash - School or Office/Workplace

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
Time for some more stash reduction!  This week at Shopping Our Stash we are giving you the opportunity to get rid of some of the paper clips and binder clips that you ordered by the gross because they looked so cute on cards in the crafting magazine!  Oh, yes, and we all need to use those paper punches that give us the little notepaper punch at the top.  I have three because obviously the Fiskars punch would be entirely different from the Martha Stewart and EK Success would be different from both of those.  So get out all that "Chalkboard" paper you purchased and put it to good use.

I still have not used all the G45 ABC Primer Paper I purchased.   For some odd reason, when I see it in a store's clearance section, I buy more.  Guess what?  I didn't use any ABC Primer paper on this card either! Go Figure!  (LOL)

The apple hides the slot that the tab loops through.  This is a fun card style and I plan to try it on a vintage/shabby chic design.

Everything used in this project has been playing hide and go seek in my studio for over a year!
Oh, one exception, the embellishment value pack is only three months old.

The Back Story
Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics
Golden Rod Mat Paper: C W I's  Pound 'O Paper
Designer Paper:  KaiserCraft Class of '87 Collection
Embellishments:  Big Lots 3Pk Scrapbook Embellishment Value Pack
