Old vs. New Challenge

This challenge is to get you to mix your old stash with your new one. I've created a list of what I consider to be old vs new. You know your stash better than I so use your judgement. Your challenge is to create a layout with at least 8 items off of this list - 4 being old and 4 being new. You can have more than that, but you must have an equal amount of old vs new. Any questions please ask. Here's your list:

1. Alphabets: OLD: Foam Stamps/Flat Stickers vs. NEW: Thickers/Die Cutting Machine lettering/ Chipboard alphas.

2. OLD: shaped punches/paper crimper vs. NEW: die cuts/dry embossing

3. OLD: deco scissors vs. NEW: Border punches

4. OLD: eyelets/snaps/conchos vs. NEW: brads/buttons/bling

5. OLD: fiber/twill vs. NEW: ribbon

6. Patterned Papers: OLD: 5 years or older vs. NEW: 1 year or newer

7. OLD: tags - jewelry/kraft/metal rimmed vs. NEW: journaling spots

8. OLD: silk flowers, stamped, die cuts vs. NEW: paper flowers or handmade flowers

9. OLD: Pen work for stitching effect vs. NEW: stitch with sewing machine or hand stitch/rubons

10. OLD: sticker vs. NEW:rub-on

11. OLD: flat cardstock vs. NEW: textured cardstock

12. Embellishments: OLD: metal(MM metal letters, plaques, charms,frames, book plates, hinges, buckles, slide frames, etc vs. NEW: deco brads, pre-made embellies, chipboard, tickets/coupons, etc.

13. OLD: Naked chipboard vs NEW: Pre-printed/colored chipboard
