Friends with Flair - a blast from the past :)

Ooh, it's FRIDAY!!!

My Friends with Flair friends, 
and the rest of my peeps - 
What's happening this weekend for you? 

Well, the weather here in Calgary doesn't look all that pretty - 
so I think that I'm gonna finally craft!
My cutting machine was in a bit of trouble recently,
so got it replaced and such... 
and now, I'm back in business!
Today - I'm gonna share what I shared on the Unity blog on Wednesday 
(in case you haven't seen it yet!)

Before I get on to that - 
have you seen the amazing sale that's happening there?
It's another Throwback Thursday -
meaning that they've taken some 'retro' stamps and released some retired ones,
as well as put some of them at a crazy good deal!
21 itty bittys marked down to $2.12
oldies but goodies markdown
plus, new angie girls

There's two cards from the past that I've made using the ones on sale - 
so thought that I'd share!
This is using Numbers, Etc. - only $2.12!

Now, onto my recent card...
I've been totally loving the 'restored' vintage funiture look recently, 
and found this photo that inspired me today!

This picture reminded me of my dad's cabinet that he used to have when I was young.
He would put everything in there...
from his glasses, keys...
to his cool gadgets and tools...
and his favorite books :)
So... being inspired and feeling nostalgic about this photo - 
I decided to take some 'square' pieces of paper, 
and line them up to make it look like 'cabinet compartment'.
I love the father-themed stamps in this current KOM,
and worked so ever perfectly as some of those were square! 

Here's my card!

I placed some of the square tiles with a foam tape, 
to make some 'compartments' pop!

The mustache (LOVE THIS!) was stamped onto acetate, 
and was cut, and raised using black foam stickers.

I also added some wooden chipboard - 
always completes the look that I want :)
Anyway - hope that I was able to 'inspire' YOU today!

Alright - have a great weekend everyone!
