The Journey

A few times a year there is a used stamp sale here,  what better to do on a Saturday morning then find some crafty items on sale. I put restrictions on myself though, I had to be able to envision a card with each item I brought. An empty change pouch later.. (don’t let the word change trick you into believing limited funds because a lot of loonies and toonies can fit in a tiny purse J). 

Anyway, I think I did pretty well with my treasures. I have also talked myself into leaving my purchases on my desk until I have used them at least once before putting them away.

With that said, it is a perfect day to make some cards and this is the first one with my new acquisitions. There were some items that caught my attention a little more than others so I pulled out The Journey by Tim Holtz for a masculine card.

I used lots of layers, all off center at different degrees. I popped up the clock face with foam tape and finished with some enamel dots. The picture is a little dark with it being taken outdoors but you get the idea.

Supplies: Natural white and black card stock, Designer Paper – Teresa Collins, Tim Holtz – The Journey, enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Nice haul! That's a great idea to have to use new stuff before putting away.

    This is a wonderful masculine card!

  2. You're the bargain hunter!

    I think its brilliant of you to make yourself use each set before filing them.

    This card is such a great mix of vintage and masculine. Excellent sentiment for the images.
