With the exception of Black Friday we are trying a spending freeze this month. We are only spending on necessities. So, I'm up for using my stash for sure!

Count me in. I too have been buying but not scrapping. I have lots to use now and need the support to get scrapping again.

Basic Grey was one manufacturer that I was never head-over-heels in love with - mostly because the unique color pallet and grey tone made it hard for me to mix with other papers or embellishments.  There were a few papers that I did get and realized I had never used them.  In this case, It was a sheet from the "PB&J" line plus a sheet from the "Out of Print" line.
Sketch was based on the Nov Sketch with a Twist challenge

Week 2:  New



Week 3:  Scraps
Used some scraps left from October Afternoon's "Witch Hazel" collection

Week 4:

Is anyone doing this? I have spent so much in the last couple months that I think this would be a good time for me to maybe actually use up my stuff. Also, I'm sure I'll be doing some Black Friday shopping, so I guess I will use that as my cheat day!  LOL Also, since I am off work for a while, I think I might use November to actually organize my scraproom. It's funny how quickly things can get out of hand. If anyone would like to join me on this spending freeze, feel free to comment here and we can use the month to support each other...or enable each other to break the freeze! I'm happy to add  weekly challenges to help us use our stash if there is any interest. Let me know. 

Week 1 challenge - Since we are stash diving and using things up, I want you to dig into that stash of patterned paper you've all been hoarding and use some of it up! There have been so many manufacturer's that have gone away. No sense saving it. So for this challenge - use up some patterned paper from a discontinued manufacturer that is at least 1 year old. No other rules other than finish your layout by the end of November. Combine with whatever. Just USE IT!!  
Great first challenge! I've been talking myself into using up October Afternoon...they were my favorite! I've been hoarding a lot...

Question - can we do the challenges more than once? Or just one entry per challenge? Thanks!
 
Happy Scrapping!

Do it as many times as you want. Combine with what you want. I'm posting challenges every Monday for inspiration. I'll choose 10 people for a prize at the end.

Ooh, intriguing! I can't wait! Let's use ALL THE STUFF!!!  

By the way, you guys, one of the things that has really helped me change my thinking about hoarding stuff and using stuff up...I used to never want to finish a pack of anything, or use the whole sheet of something. Then I starting changing my goal. Not so much to scrap X amount of pages or finish that event etc but I changed my goal to "having a full garbage pail."  My DH is neurotic about garbage day. So that means every Sunday and Wednesday all the pails in the house get emptied. I have just a few days to fill a pail. That includes cutting up pictures and throwing out scraps that are too small. I used to save EVERY SINGLE SCRAP EVER MADE. Omg, why?? If I use up something, the packaging helps fill the pail. It's a weird system, I know but it seems to be working. Between this and all the fabulous challenges here, I'm getting more pages and cards done now than ever before!  ;) :greeninlove:

Great challenge for me!  I think we all have a "stash" of paper that we don't want to use!

Week 2-Everything on here is new except for the inks.  I subscribe to Studio Calico's monthly stamp and I just got this stamp set in the mail today.  Bella Besties is new and so are the Doodlebug stickers.
