*New Challenge* Use it Up! **WINNER**

Post by StacyLee » Sun Mar 15, 2020 1:24 pm

WOW you cherries did an awesome job using up what you posted!! The winner of the challenge, according to random.org is......scrappinmom99 (Anne-Marie). Congrats!  I just purchased your gc, enjoy!!  :-D

Hey cherries!  It's been a while since I hosted a challenge in the MB, thought I'd surprise everyone with a new challenge mid-month!  I'm going to run this through the end of April and I hope you'll play along  :-D

So this isn't an original idea, but I've enjoyed playing along with the Use it or Lose it challenge and similar ones in the past.  What this challenge will be is that I want you to dig DEEP into your stash and take a picture of an item you've had for at least one year...something you had to have but haven't used either at all or very little.  Your challenge will be to keep that item out and use it as many times as you can on a project for the duration of the challenge.  The item will be of your choosing...maybe it's a stamp set that caught your eye and is still in the package, or a package of die cuts or flowers. I'm not asking you to lose it at the end...just use it :-D  I think you get the idea, but just ask if you have a question.

I'd like to ask each cherry to save a spot in this thread with a picture of your item.  Each time you have a project to enter, please edit your original post and keep all your entries together. 

Here's the item I chose from my stash, I've had these Simple Stories Life Documented word strip stickers for years, and it's been years since I used them...but I can't part with them LOL  Time to use them!
Image
And here's my sample, I used THREE of the word strips....it's a start!
ImageRules:
Open to layouts and cards, must be NEW work posted in the gallery
Save your spot in this thread and post a picture of the item you're using up.  Please edit your post to add each of your entries.
The item you took a picture of must clearly be seen on each entry.

Share as many projects as you'd like, but I will limit each cherry to 3 entries for the drawing
You can combine each entry with one other challenge that allows.
Deadline is midnight, April 30, 2020
A random winner will be picked to receive a $5 ACOT gc from me
Most importantly, have FUN and use it UP!

Saving my spot.  Off to find what I have in my stash I want to use up and will post a pic.  BTW - I LOVE this challenge.

I've decided to use this Pinkfresh Studio chipboard set from 2018.  I'm starting a layout now that will include at least one of the pieces.

Oh, Thanks, Stacy ! I Love this challenge! I know I have many new items, now to just find one to use a few times!Here are my OLD supplies.  Flock from Making Memories, Pre-2012, and 3 adhesive packs to use with it. 
I have never used this so it will be a new technique for me. I am pretty sure I won’t use All of this , but it will be fun and you never know, I may kerp on using it for mixed media!!

At least one year old … how about 10 years old! Yes I have something in mind and that's about how long it's been in my stash! Love this challenge and your sample. Your pen work is fantastic, as always, and adds so much to your page!

Thanks for this challenge. It made me think. I looked for something and didn't come across any one package, but it did allow me to spot my baggie of brads and I am going to use from them. I expect to use more of those because of your posting, even if I didn't find any one thing. I'm happy to use from old stash anyway.
Well, alrighty then!
I pulled the bag out again and spotted one that had a good many left, so I was going to come back with a photo of it.
Then I read your note and so I guess I am playing. Thanks for the inclusion to the fun.

Even though I reached my limit of 3, I kept using! It's a win for me to use more stash up.

My dinosaur page will count then.

That's perfect, Joyce Ann and I'm glad for your post so I can clarify for all the cherries. It doesn't have to be a manufacturer's pre-packaged item, for example I have a jar of flowers & leaves, all kinds of them in one jar. That could be an item (and might be in the future for me LOL). Just show a pic of your baggie of brads and play along :-D
