Welcome to the all-new Hoarder's Challenge

The Scrappy Supplies Hoarder, you know who you are! (And, be honest, we're all guilty of it at one time or another!) Do you have one or two (or more!) coveted papers or paper lines that you just can't cut into?! How about a pad of papers you haven't touched, but had to have? Do you have a special package of embellies you simply refuse to use? Well this challenge is for you! Your challenge is to step up, admit to your hoarded supplies and USE them!

Here's what to do to enter:
1. List at least one supply item (paper or embellishment) that you've hoarded unused or uncut for at least six months or more.
2. Bite the bullet and create a page, card or project with it.
3. Post it here for us to all cheer you and clap you on the back!

Note: This is a fun challenge and not meant for competition - just challenging us to use those most coveted treasures we've held onto! Feel free to enter at any time this month and as often as you like! And as you use your stash, feel free to add more and challenge yourself again! We all spend our hard-earned money on fun goodies, it's time we used them!

Now, who's in?!

Ok.

I'll bite on that BoBunny MammaRazzi paper line.

I have all of it plus extras, including chipboard elements and (I think) alphabets as well.

Gads, this is gonna HURT. You know that, right?

I'm told it's like ripping off a bandaid... I wouldn't know tho, since I have only cut into one page from Mama-razzi... and I bought a replacement right away!

oh good heavens this means I need to take inventory so I can list it all...and then the month would be up! but really not funny.

I'm in though and just have to figure out what to start with.

BBL to give the first go round.

Great idea Sonja.

BTw - love that photo of your little guy - I cracks me up every time I see it.

Glad to see you Mary, Pam and Pat! I thought it was about time to tell it like it is here! LOL
I'm sure I have a zillion hoarded kits, packs and pads (not to mention embellies). I'll have to pick tougher ones next time!

LOL Mary! Yep, that photo cracks me up too! It's the face Carlo gives me every time I put the mute button in (i.e. pacifier). He apparently hates the thing! It's like he's saying 'Mom, you do realize there's nothing in this thing, right? What's the point again?'

Perhaps I'll use the Mama-razzi for this??? Hummmmm....

I be in on this one. I was brave earlier this month and pulled some paper out of my stash and cut into it for my cards for Operation Write Home. I don't know if I can cut into my beloved Cosmo Cricket papers. Squee, I love them too much! But, that' why I joined this challenge, right?

The first victim, I mean sacrifice, I mean paper pack, is SEI Bissette. I don't remember when I got it or where, but it was so pretty! It's going to be a 12th birthday gift for my friend's daughter. It'll be a door dec. or wall hanging.

I am in - I have some of the following SU packs that are now retired so no point in hoarding any more (or is that even more reason to hoard?) Regardless I bought them for projects so best get moving!

One of:

a) Everyday Enchantment Suite - papers, ribbons, buttons (I think I have done one card and one layout with a small bits of this paper and I love it). OR
b) Love Impressions OR
c) Twitterpated (I seem to have 2 packs of this and haven't yet used it)

Um, I usually buy a few extra sheets of paper, embellies, or paper packs, so I can have some to cut and some to keep. Then, I dig in the stash when I get new stuff and say to myself, "why was I hoarding this, it isn't that cool?" Some stuff, like G45, I don't know how to make something cool enough for it!

G45 has always terrified me too - although I am so loving that Nutcracker suite that I might just do a pretty album for me with just the papers!

Add me. I have no idea what I'll bust out. I have some really old BG that could use a slice and dice though.

I'm going to try to piggyback this challenge on Jami's 30 day sketch challenge, along with the Anything Goes Challenge and get a dent into my hoarded stash of scrap-cr@p.

Hope that's ok with you Sonja!

Here's #1. Featuring the "DUDE" line by The Paper Loft. In my stash since...2010. The little check it out card is by MME, and was a Peachy Cheap buy somewhere close to a year and a half ago. The mini-cogs by Tim Holtz are the last of the package that I bought like six months ago.

One Excellent Adventure

When I pulled these out I thought of this challenge. I was on a major Cosmo Cricket kick a while back. Working on a lo using them now.

Tina- I love and hoard Cosmo Cricket! I last broke out the Early Bird collection for my SIL's wedding album.

Tammy- I took a G45 class at Scrapfest last year and that really helped me figure out how to use their papers. I also got on my distressing kick and found more of my style.

Love this idea! I have a lot of single piece papers that I've been holding on to forever! I went and had a look and this is what I'm going to start with. The paper is 3yrs old and stickers 2!

I also have a HUGE supply of sassfras stuff that I am hoarding. When they had their grand finale box sale, I both both boxes! I try and use it, but now that they have closed I find myself using it sparingly! lol I'm also going to try and do a few lO's using some of that stuff too.

I brought my SEI stuff with me to work on this weekend, and didn't touch it at all. Sigh.
