JANUARY 2019 Use Your Stash Challenge

Post by Monroe1218 » Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:59 pm

Welcome to the Use Your Stash challenge for January 2019!  WOW!  I can't believe a new year is upon us already. 

I've been thinking of new ways to try and keep this challenge fun and fresh for this year - so we don't get in a rut of the same ol' boring thing..... so for this year I'm going to change up the challenge a bit.  Sometimes it might be an item, sometimes a color of embellishment or paper - but there will also be an additional challenge to go along with it.....

So for this month - I want you to use the color blue as your main color - you may use any other color as long as at least 50% of your layout is blue.  Dig out all things sparkly too!  Bling, sequins, Stickles, glitter... ANYTHING sparkly will work!  And for the last part of the challenge - handwritten journaling.... doesn't have to be a lot, but more than just a line stating the facts about the picture....

I can't wait to see what you creative ladies can do with this one!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

You may combine this challenge with one other challenge that allows
Layouts or cards accepted for this challenge
Open to paper, digi or hybrid scrappers
Entries must be posted to this thread by January 31 @ 1159pm EST
Multiple entries are allowed - since this is all about stash busting, there won't be a limit on the number of entries....
A $5 ACOT gift card will be awarded randomly to one participant

Awesome - my two youngest grandsons were here a few days in December so that screams BLUE!! And since they live in Arkansas with their mom, I'm sure I can come up with some handwritten journaling.

This Challenge was a lot of fun.  I couldn't believe I had the perfect pic!  The blue part was the hardest since I don't use it very often.  I used PP from the MVP Collection from We R from 2008 and some Bazzill that I have had probably just as long.  I used this for the What's on TV Challenge, also.

Here's one from me, the bling is the glitter letters in the title and a stipe of glitter wash down the right. I think the other ones are obvious.

I think I've got all the requirements: 1. between the papers and photos, I've got more than 50% blue 2. sparkle in the title letters and the shell between the words "Hilton Head" 3. handwritten journaling.

I also combined with the Music Challenge. Thanks!
