Have you ever seen the commercial where a couple goes to a builder; they put a Kohler faucet on the desk and say "Design a house around this." Well, that got me thinking about all the "stuff" I have that I bought simply because I liked it (and usually without any reason or need) and it inspired this challenge.

For this challenge, you'll be building your house (your LO,card, etc.) around your faucet (an embellishment, flowers, some ribbon, some paper -- whatever you want).


You can submit as many LOs as you want. Please post the item you'll be building the LO around, and then post the LO you create around it.

There will not be any RAK for this challenge as the idea here is to use what you already have and not end up with more stuff you'll have to use!! This challenge is for inspirational purposes only!!

So, how about it -- let's make a dent in our "stuff" one item at a time.

This challenge will go from March 1 to March 31 -- let's see how much of our stuff we can use in one month!

No signups needed -- just create and post!! I'll put all your accomplishments on this first post so we can all get motivation and inspiration for each other!

Here we go:

Oh geeeeze, do I need THIS one!

Count me. I'm cleaning my scrap room today, and no doubt I'll find LOTS of things that fit here.

I found this title strip a long time ago and wanted to use it with my dd's trip to France but it just sat there with the pic of Chateau de Chenoceau as I had no ideas what to do. When I saw this challenge - it was perfect to do this layout. Since the vellum is so light on the background I decided to stamp the background with Paris stamps. I wanted the title to stand out more and found some pink bling, then the photo blended in too much so used some shimmery paper trying to match the bling. You can't really see it but I used white flourish clear shapes on the bottom of the title on both ends of the bling trying to cover up the hard line of the vellum strip.

For a layout being so simple, it took a long time trying to figure out what to add - I'm happy that I decided to just stamp the background and not have a bulky layout.
