A few days late... sorry everyone!

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!

*New Rules*
Here's what to do to enter:
1. Bite the bullet and create a page, card or project with a supply item (or two, or three) that you've hoarded for at least a year. Your hoarded 'supply' could be anything - embellishment, paper, an old Cricut cartridge you bought, but never used.
2. Post your project here for us to all cheer you and clap you on the back!
3. List the hoarded items you used with your post so we can go search our stash for them!

Note: This is a fun challenge and not meant for competition - just challenging us to use those most coveted treasures we've held onto and get a little love in the process! Feel free to enter at any time this month and as often as you like! We all spend our hard-earned money on fun goodies, it's time we used them!

I will do my best to keep the front updated with everyone's work, but don't let that stop you (I know, it didn't last month!) from continuing to create and break out your hoarded goodies!

Now, let's see those projects!

I just didn't post what I did last month- although I did do it- so I am going to give it a go for this month...

I'm in. I'm going to use some of my Cosmo Cricket Salt Air collection if it kills me. I also have some Jesse James buttons that are at least 3 years old that I'm going to try and incorporate.

I'm totally in again this month and already have 2 LO's I completed using stuff from my scrappy-hoard, lol!

Here They are.....

Basic Grey-Capella papers (2yrs old); Rub-on flourish (approx 4yrs old)
Metal Cross charm (2years old)
'Hope' Tile Sticker (3-4yrs old)
Prima flowers (4-5yrs old)
Heidi Swapp Acrylic heart (5yrs old)

and...

My Playful Little Fiona By Jamariel

Hoarded Items:

Specialty Paper-scalloped lace-like trim, (1-2yrs old)

Thanks so much for keeping this challenge going Sonja! It has truly inspired me to go through my stash and use up as much as I can of what I already have before I go out and buy NEW scrappy-stuff. Do whatever you need to keep this thread as simple as possible for yourself, I'm sure everyone will understand. I can only imagine what it's like for you w/a new baby right now. Bless your heart and I will be sure to keep you in my prayers.

Well, I thought that my Italy mini-book pages would count, but I've not been hoarding that Weekend Market for all THAT long.

But man it's hurting so BAD to CUT it!

Well....since you asked.

I'm doing them on an 8x8 format so that the book will be easy for my mom to hold. That's why all the flowers and bling look so BIG - because the pages are smaller than the 12x12 format I usually use.

I've gotten all the paper glue ups done in photographic sequence, but I haven't gotten the PAGES finished in sequential order, so it's going to feel a little hodgepodge.

Yes, I got a hair cut in Italy. And yes, I have the photos.

Oh Pat, I'm gonna bend the rules there for you - especially since you've already admitted how hard it is to cut into those pretty Weekend Market pages! And your pages are SO pretty! LOVING the Italy photos too!! Keep 'em comin!

And way to start us off Jami!! Geeez all I've done is add to my already ridiculous hoard so far this month! I'm itching to get into my papers, but no time during the weeks and weekends fly by with all the to-dos I dont' get done during the week!! At this rate, Carlo will be in high school before I get to scrap his baby book!

Pat - those pages are stunning- your mom is going to love them.

So wishing I was scrapping rather than being at work tho...

When I saw this challenge I knew I had to be involved!
I have made it a personal goal to start using up some of my stash.
ALmost everything on this layout is over a year old...some going way back to 10 years old!
