It is official, I am on a star kick. Here is this weeks layout. Instead of re-inventing the wheel each time I sit down to create a new layout, I will sometimes use a layout that has already been created and stashed in our albums.. Remember this layout from February? I used the same layout and created this soccer layout.





I love that these photos are from this past weekend...yes, you read that right :-). I love that they are already scrapbooked. I love that I was able to use random scraps of B&W pattern paper from my stash to create my stars. I love that I had all of the supplies on hand, in my stash.

I have star punches and star die cuts for my Quickutz but I always go back to this template.



















The template comes from a Heidi Swapp package of acetate stars. The stars were cute, I used each and every one of them. I can't tell you how many times I have used this template to create stars for my layouts. I just trace and cut. I love when I can reuse something over and over again...totally feel like I got my moneys worth :-). Do you have an inexpensive/recycled scrap tool or technique that you use over and over again? Please share.
