APRIL and MAY 2020 Use Your Stash Challenge

Post by Monroe1218 » Tue Apr 07, 2020 10:25 am

Somehow March got completely away from me and I missed posting the monthly Use Your Stash challenge!  And then April has been a wild month, thanks COVID-19 and working at the hospital!  So.... here is the Use Your Stash challenge that will run for April and May. 

For this challenge, dig out your rub-ons AND metal embellishments.... Metal embellishments could be eyelets, brads, book plates, etc.
Use at least 2 rub-ons and 2 metal embellishments on your project.  Make sure that they easily seen on your project!

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 May 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.  If there are more than 20 participants a 2nd $5 gift card will be awarded.

I am in love with rub-ons..but wish they were all great to use...and not so hard to get off.  Chatterbox made them a long time ago and are my favorite!  Echo Park new ones are easy to use as well!

OH Do I have "metal"...my neighbor gave me her stash of metal alphas! Plus I still have brads, eyelets, and book plates hiding somewhere. It hasn't been that long since I used a rub-on. I just don't have too many of them. This is a great challenge for me this month!!

What a great challenge!  I have a ton of metals that I almost never even look at.   And I have been toying with tossing the oodles of old rub ons I have, because many of the ones I have tried to use just don't rub on any more!  Dry rotted, I guess!  Will be digging deep for this one!

And thank you for being in the  thick of the Covid-19 disaster.  Be safe out there!

It was fun to dig out my rub-ons and these metal alphas that my neighbor gave me! (the rub-ons are b/w flowers & they are in the title cluster and tag cluster)

I used the one way with heart, u-turn arrow with heart, and travel Rub ons. I used 2 metal brads and the camera for metal. Sorry the camera is sideways it swings because I attached it with my Paper Tagger!

I used several metal embellishments and the celebrate and Hugs & kisses are the rub-ons.    I loved picking out the older items and found some others I can use as well-I certainly have enough!   

Thank you for this great challenge!

I didn't know I had so many rub-ons! I found a Christmas set from Tim Holtz!

The black word rub-ons are hard to see..."falala" is on a photo of my daughter wearing an elf hat, "it's a wonderful life" is going vertical on a flag with my son's pic, and "special delivery" is very hard to see. It is on the photo of my cross-stitched stocking in the bottom row. The gold mini brads are in the title card and the 'holiday cheer" card.

Here's another using the same rub-ons. The rub-ons are easier to see on this layout. They are on the 2 labels and the circle tag. & I found a gold star paper clip for my metal.

All my rub ons I had ages ago expired and I never purchased any more. Is there an alternative to rub-ons we could use?
