CCEE1709 - Old Stuff Day

Lynn starts her month as hostess for the CCEE Stampers with a fun challenge to honor "Old Stuff" Day.  We were to make a card or project making use of some of our earliest stamps of our collection, or make use of old supplies in our stash, or a vintage image of something from the past.  The first stamp set I bought from Stampin' Up was Fishy Friends.  The "seaweed" is the octopus from that set.


Stop over to the CCEE Stampers Blog to see what old things the rest of the team found.

I remember that set. Not sure if I owned it or not. Don't seem to be able to find it if I do. Too bad the oldest thing around my house is my brain.. LOL
Love your card.

I remember when this cute little guy was all the rage!! At one of the first large shoebox swaps I attended, there must have been at least 5 cards we created with this sweet fishy!! Great work, Lois!

I have always loved this set, but haven't used it in a long time. How clever to use the tentacles as the seaweed. Another of your brilliant ideas!!! WOW!

Vicky Gould said...

Haha! I didn't have that set, but my friend did so I remember it. Isn't it fun to pull out old stamps and give them new life? Your octopus "seaweed" is so clever.
