Used lots of older items in my stash first and formost are the pictures!! I use to print them as soon as I took the photos which helps with the dating when its printed on the back. The decorative tape that holds the journal block was also used when I sent that block thru my printer. A great way to hold the piece in place then use it on the layout too! I used various inks, stencils, and embossing paste to texture.
Cricut and Silhouette work.
