Use What You Have #5 (and Freebie!)

Hi Sweeties!

We're back with another go at the 'Use What You Have Challenge'!

Oh my goodness - you ladies are knocking it out of the park EVERY WEEK! This week was NO exception! Every link I clicked on lead me to a WOW moment! It was so very hard to choose! Going by strickly the most creative use of old supplies - it was a toss up between Tracy with this card

And Samantha with this gem

Ohhh - it's just almost impossible to choose. So, in the spirit of giving everyone a chance to win.... (and because Samantha was picked last week) Tracy! Your card inches out the amazing competition! You're getting something sweet in the mail!

The random winner - thanks to random.org is ....

(Kristina - email us your addy and we'll get you something sweet in the mail! - info@sweetstampshop.com ) 


Ready for this week? 

Read through the directions carefully - we've changed just a couple things... (well, not really changed - just made more clear) 

You'll have until next tuesday to add your link below - your link needs to be to the direct post not to your general blog - and it needs to include -

1. A link back to our challenge (and optional - our challenge badge - see above)

2. A picture of your stash

3. A picture of your project

Some Extra Details -

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!

(also, we had a question about multiple entries - YES, you can make as many cards as you like! BUT, it doesn't increase your odds of winning - your name will go into the hat 'once')


Ok so here is my rather large 12x12 sticker stash - YIKES

Utt Oh - it's a little out of hand, I'd say! 

So, let's use it up! 

My inspiration this week... 

That's right - my Dad! It's father's day this weekend and I had to make a good card!

I decided to use the 'Alpha Tabs' set to make a word search card (of sorts) -

The mustache on the card is from the new 'Weird Love'

AND because I thought you might like a quick fathers day card - I made the word search into a digital file that you can download - print - and make into a card for your Dad! FREE! Ohhh, gotta LOVE that!

Click on this link for the FREE digi file! 

We'd love it if you wanted to play along this week with us - all you have to do is USE WHAT YOU HAVE!

Add your link below and you'll be entered to win one of TWO awesome sweet prizes!

Thanks for supporting Sweet Stamp Shop!
