We're so excited to be back with another round of our 'use what you have' challenge!
Although we only had a couple people participate last week - I got great feed back about how much people loved the challenge idea! And the girls who did jump on board did an amazing job .... Let's give them a big high five! (in no particular order...)
Everyone did such an amazing job! --- I thought THE most creative card was Jessica's - BUT, Maria also had the most 'old' looking supplies and created a very lovely card. UGH, these are the hard choices a girl has to make! Ok - how about this... since there is only a couple participants... this week... EVERYONE wins something! (if you're outside the US we'll have you help us with shipping)
So, if you'd like something sweet - email Nicole your address and we'll get something out to you! Big Hugs for participating ladies! I hope you all try your hand at it this week too! (and of course, you let Nicole know if you'd like a extra special sweet coupon! - in case you've been eyeing something sweet!)
email - firstname.lastname@example.org (or email@example.com)
Ready for this week?!
Here is a reminder of the rules....
1. You do not *have to* use SSS in your card or project - although, we'd love it! (and we can't feature your project in our marketing without you using SWEET! - so keep that in mind!)
2. You have until Tuesday at 10pm pst to add your link below
3. There will be ONE winner based upon most creative use of 'old stuff' .... and ONE winner drawn from all the participants. Winners will be announced the day of the new challenge - so, in this case... next Wednesday. Prize will be something sweet - lol.
MOST IMPORTANT!!! Create whatever strikes your fancy - scrapbook page, project life - cards - altered art - home decor.... anything! Just be sure to use that old stuff in it!
Here is my 'stash' box (you remember it from last week) and I've found some travel stickers that have to be 7+ years old. I also spotted this old paper in my paper stash.
So, challenge ON.
I wanted to use up ALL the stickers... cause I know that if I use a couple and put some back I'll NEVER go back to them again. So, they were going on a card - or they were going in the trash. (and I shutter to think of these pretty stickers going in the trash - yikes)
I made two cards -
I used a couple sets with this card -
Calendar | Chalkboard Sign | Alpha Tabs | and Today Was
It always makes me feel GOOD to use LOTS of my stamp stash for a card... it makes the idea of having so much justifiable - right?! lol
I only used one set with this card -
Across the Miles
I tell you what though, I use that set ALL THE TIME! If you're on the fence with this set - I can tell you that I use it so much, it's almost trashed. The USA map stamp is BLACK and on it's last leg. That's how much I've used it and loved it. I also used some Timeless Twine - LOVE THEM! and the twine is pretty amazing too! lol
So are you inspired to play along?! I hope so! Add your link below by next Tuesday (10pm pst) for a chance at some SWEET prizes!
