June/July *New Challenge* Collection Bashing!*WINNERS*

Post by lissahope26 »

Congrats to love2stamp and Jaire! 

I was organizing and condensing some of my collections last night.  I found several that I only have a little bit left of including Glitter Girl.  So my challenge to you is to post a picture of a collection or collections that needs to be bashed. 
Image
Image Image
The challenge 2nd part is to make as many layouts, cards, projects, pocket pages, etc that you like to bash your collection stash.  Each project will get you one entry into a drawing for two $10 ACOT giftcards from me.  Double pages count as one entry.  You may enter this as many times as you like.  You may combine with any other challenges that allow combining. 
Deadline to enter is July 31st at 11:59pm.  Here are some sketches in case anyone needs a jump off point (like me):

Count me in.  I'll take a photo tomorrow of a collection I want to use up.  I've got several but I've got to start somewhere and may actually do a Shimelle collection, too.  I'm going to try to bash my Shimelle Box of Crayons collection.  Since Emma will be going to SCAD (Savanahha College of Art and Design - Atlanta campus) in the fall, there are lots of "artsy" stuff in this collection that I can use now.

Oh this is a good one! What collection shall I pick LOL!? I just did a layout bashing the last bits of an old Echo Park collection. I have tons of collections that need bashing - old and new ones! I'm glad you're extending it into July! Fun sketches too! And I have a newish hexagon punch that I'm still in love with LOL!
Happy Scrapping!

This is awesome! I'm really excited about this one! I bashed the Doodlebug "Puppy Love" collection a couple of months ago and I just have washi tape and paper clips from it. Like Anne-Marie....which collection(s) do I want to bash next!??!

My first inclination was to do that.  Get rid of it!  But then I thought that I could make something with those scraps.

I rarely get rid of scraps.  I find them very useful with card making.  Especially making die cuts.  Have to get off the couch with my darn ankle and check what collection needs to be used up.  I rarely buy a collection, but just bits and pieces.

Here's mine! I decided to combine all my American Crafts, except for the Vicki Boutin lines. I keep passing over using this time after time. There are some whole sheets and bits and pieces along with some embellishments. Maybe mixing them altogether I'll be able to use some of it up! 😊

American Crafts 'Amy Tangerine Shine On' pp's
American Crafts 'Amy Tangerine Better Together' pp's
American Crafts 'Dear Lizzy It's All Good' plus Ephemera
American Crafts 'Dear Lizzy She's Magic' pp's
American Crafts 'Shimelle Glitter Girl' pp's
American Crafts 'Shimelle Head in the Clouds' plus Ephemera
American Crafts 'Shimelle Never Grow Up' pp's
Pinkfresh Studios Puffy Thickers
Pink Paislee Stickers
-------------------------
13 Layouts Finished! 😊

I got a few done and it was so much easier mixing all the scraps from those lines. There just didn't seem to be enough from any one line to make a page.

Melissa, this is a great challenge! I am feeling ambitious so I am posting 2 collections - an old and a new one. 

This is the last of any Fancy Pants papers I have. (Are they still around?) It's from the About a Boy collection and I've had them since 2007 and I pretty much have always known which pics I wanted to use for them so...why not JUST DO IT finally LOL! And they are all double-sided so lots of options (the orange polka dot is the back of the brown with circles). 

Then I got my preorder yesterday of the Quarantine collection. I have an 8x11 pandemic album started so I want to motor through that to "make a historical document" lol. And I want to bash it before it gets lost in the stash, you know what I mean? LOL!

Now, do we hold a spot for ourselves and keep posting our layouts in the same thread? Will that be easier for you?

Whatever works for you.  If posting them all in one post is your jam, go for it.

I hear you and feel you on this one.  I picked Glitter girl but I have 3 boy collections that I could be tackling also.  There is no limit so do what you feel like.
