***WINNER***January 2020 Use Your Stash Challenge

Post by Monroe1218 » Thu Jan 02, 2020 11:38 am

WINNER - Winner randomly selected using random.org, #5 - ScrappyDistractions/Lisa!  I'll be sending your ACOT gift card later this week!

Happy New Year!!

After a long hiatus, the Use Your Stash challenge is back!  I'm hoping that this challenge will help you make a dent in your stash and maybe find a new use for things that you've been holding onto. 

For this month, I want you to dig into your cardstock and patterned paper scraps AND punches/dies!  Use at least 5 different scraps and 2 different punches/dies on your layout or card.  Maybe you can cluster them, use them as corners?  Embellish a pocket or journaling square.... the possibilities are endless.  Please make sure that your punched items are visible on the layout - and list the scraps you used.


You may combine this challenge with one other challenge that allows
 Layouts or cards accepted for this challenge
 Open to paper layouts or cards only!
 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

Is it only for cardstock scraps or all paper scraps?

I am making progress on my scraps thanks to challenges like this!  I even pulled out some dies that I have had for 2+ years yet never used

Papers:  three from MME "Surfs Up" collection, the B-side of a super old MME Christmas paper, one from Jillibean Soup, and one from Recollections.
Dies:  two square stamp-edge dies plus a tab die

Sorry - put this in the wrong challenge - should be Supply List. I don't have 5 scraps on this LO.
