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!

*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!

February Twist: It's technique time! Time to use those masks, stencils, inks, mists, embossing folders, die-cut template, and other technique tools you bought forever ago and have never worked up the nerve to use! (I know I'm guilty of it for sure!) This month, break out some technique supply you've never used and USE it on a project or page! (I, myself have probably 20 mask templates I had to have, but have never used!) And let's bend the rules a little... for this twist, your technique item doesn't have to be older than a year.

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 from continuing to create and break out your hoarded goodies!

Now, let's see those projects!

I'm in again, and I sure hope to get something to show for it this time!

I have some glimmer mists, but I'm terrified of using them on LO's since I don't want the glimmer to smear onto the plastic after it's dry. If I use a spray sealer for charcoal drawings, do you think that would make the mist stick better?

This was an item I finished yesterday - for a contest and now have an order for another one:

I've had these 2 sets of rub & buff since 2005 maybe that I just never used and I stole a couple rolls of the foil tape about 3 years ago from the hubby and never used those either. Then a challenge came up which I made journal covers then switched my idea on Friday and built a cardboard box and I frottaged & embossed, painted & rubbed & buffed all the foil tape to create this: Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Challenge Wk 3 - Dragon Box By SnowDog

I'm going to make another box with this fun metal/foil tape (I'm having so much fun with this) and I have some alcohol inks from 2006 that I haven't used cuz they look kinda ugly and I guess I don't really use them and I'll post that box here too - and we'll see what a difference difference mediums make. (really I just want to make more things with this metal tape - this stuff is awesome!)

So since I was playing with metal foil for another contest that I completed on the 2nd - it doesn't really qualify but I'm hoping my new box does as this is a new technique for me and I'm still using hoarded items.

Happy Girls Are The Prettiest by GentlewoodFarms


Let's see - hoarded paper, flowers, chipboard. I don't think there is ANYthing in my stash that I haven't used or tried at least once. I've dug and dug and dug....

I'll keep looking.

GREAT to see you all here and LOVING that we have so many projects already!

Marci - Wow you are fast! No worries, I don't stand on any sort of ceremony and there isn't a real reason for the twist other than to challenge us a little more! That said, love the one you made with the cuttlebug folders!

SnowDog - Welcome! Nope, this one counts, but feel free to post the other one as well!

Erin - That is awesome that this twist got you to use those punches and dies on another project! That was my goal!

Keep 'em coming!

I got a start one the new box with alcohol ink wash but I ran out of cardboard for the last side....then I realized that I have to hand cut flowers, guess I figured flowers were too girly or something - or maybe flower dies haven't been on sale when I was shopping ---- or I just tell my dd too bad - I'm not making a girly box but she can have a dragon box - lol.
