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 cheer you and clap you on the back!

3. List or link the hoarded items you used with your post so we can go search our stash for them!

**Enter as many times and as often as you like, this is an open challenge with no sign-ups necessary!

** Optional Twist: (For bragging rights really...)***
We're having multiple twists for January, call it our January clean-up!
1. Trims: Use up those last bits of trim you have left at the bottom of your stash. Bonus kudos for using multiple on one project!
2. Embellishments: Finish off those packs of embellishments with one or two pieces left in them! How many packs can you finish off in one project?
3. Paper Pieces: Dig out that scrap stash and use up some of those paper pieces and scraps you have taking up space! How creative can YOU be with them??
4. BUDGET: This is the biggie (Thank you Amanda for the idea!) For the month of January, challenge yourself NOT to spend ANY scrappy money on new, non-essential items! (Cardstock, glue, etc don't count) Can you do it? I know that'll be a BIG challenge for me!

Sonja, thanks for hosting again. Hope you are feeling better and the family doesn't get it.

I'm in.

Love the idea of not spending anything. I decided to self-impose a no buy challenge until I use up half of the stuff in my room. Some of it is original papers and stickers I bought in 1895. Ooops that was 1995. LOL!

I think this LO conquered all the twists:

Laura Plantation, LA By Pink Spoonbill

1. The lace is old and I managed to have just enough for the LO.

2. Those pearl brads have been hoarded for at least four years.

3. The black is scraps.

4. I had everything and it cost me nothing!

Gosh I love a plan when it comes together. LOL!

ACU to here.

Terri that is a good challenge! I would find it hard to judge when I'd used up half though! That's why I do a specific # of lo's.

I am in again. Here is my first project. I used some very old Basic Grey "Oh Boy" pp for this card. Also, this meets a few of the twists, since the lace and all of the cardstock came from my scraps folder, and were all pieces that were left over. :

I've never used the lattice die or the butterfly punch. I used scraps for both of them too. lattice card By AmyWho

I've had this paper since 2011 and have been hoarding it except for bits and pieces - I used both scraps and some new sheets on this card.

I also have been hoarding the twine and the buttons I have had without using them for over a year as well.
