I used the Bo Bunny chipboard and also the Bazzill rub-ons = Done!

What a pain in the rear both of these items were! The rub-ons didn't want to rub-on and the chipboard lost all of it's sticky back. I have to say this challenge is teaching me one thing. Quit buying so much sCrap if you are not going to use it right away! Yeah...like that's gonna happen in my life.

Got one done using the Push My Buttons.

Gone Fishin' By MarKaren

One more left to do. Hopefully and I can do a quick one tomorrow with my last item. I do have one more day, don't I?

10. Moni (MoniL) (0/5)

so I'd rather look through the store than work during lunch so here's my list:

- Tim Holtz mask.
- Making Memories tags (use at least 2)- I have no idea why I bought these.
- Heidi Swapp ghost shapes (use at least 2).
- Basic Grey journaling blocks (use at least 1) - I was disappointed with these so lets see how I do.
- Basic Grey pp (use a portion) - I have a really hard time working with big floral patterns so this will really be a challenge.

I guess my theme this month is to work with stuff that gave me buyer's remorse, lol!

************************* *************************

Update! - I'm finally back. I fell on labor day and sprained and broke my ankle along with busting both of my lips badly and chipping a tooth. I got to stay home (pretty drugged) for a couple of days but then once I had to start coming back to work, I was so exhausted by day's end that I haven't had any fun time. I'm still on crutches but my arms/shoulders aren't killing me as much and I'm only taking the pain med at night so I hope to finally wander back into my scraproom this weekend and get busy. As well as get caught up on the love for all of the fabulous work you ladies have been doing.

I think in August I was one this site maybe a total of 3 times so I never got to choose an item or items to scrap. Please add me and I will get my pics and stuff up tomorrow. I will take tonight to pick my stuff.


I see you have paper on your list Kelly, if you don't use up all that pp do you send your scraps to the winner or toss it?? I know I love the paper you have chosen and would love the scraps...LOL...I have had to stop spending this past year to make sure we didn't lose our house so I haven't gotten anything new for scrapbooking in forever. I have retired Stampin Up paper and ribbon I would like to get used up I may put that up.

One last question for ya, if I add a stamp set to my list of 5 and I use it I can still keep it right?? I have sets that match the paper I want to use but I didn't even mount them on the blocks yet. I want to incorperate the sets on my pages. Let me know how stamps play into this.

In the case of paper & or if not used, then the whole sheet would go to the Winner!

I'd rather not have to send an 12x12 sheet of paper (akward to mail that size), so that's kinda why I purposely have been challenging myself and or forcing myself to use it!

I absolutely love all things Sassafras & Cosmo Cricket. Due to location and nonavailability, I am no longer able to make scrappy purchases that involve the latest & greatest!

I'd say 90% of the time, I include an entire piece of paper. Most of my strips go right back into other pages.

However, due to Paper Pack Stacks, I do in fact have some scraps from both Collections.

I'd be more than willing to go through my scrap stash and see what I can come up with for you Sue.

Please do me a favor, if you will. To call it a fair trade & in keeping with the spirit of the Challenge...If I can ask that you would send whoever the ultimate winner of the Aug Challenge a small rak/or anything that you won't be using of any sort.

Just let me know & I'll be sure to make you a small scrap pack that you'll hopefully enjoy!

Thanks Sue!

If you use it, then it's still yours!

All I really ask of anyone is that they actually open up & use (at least) 1 item from any type of set.

Got your items posted & listed onto page 1 Sam!

In the case of anything powdered, liquid, etc. all we're looking for is that you use it. 1 drop, 2 drops, 1 project, multiple projects...It's really all up to you!

Lastly, in care of including an Autumn-theme. No, not all. You may scrap & create whatever fits your fancy!

Hope That Helps!

If this will help in anyway at all...

Here Ya Go!

Challenge Ideas, Tips & Pointers

- Use any amount or portion of that item. We just want to see you dust off, open & or use it!

- On that note, whether this is your first time or your 3rd time around, just keep in mind, the smaller the items, the quicker you just might be able to complete this Challenge! In the case of multiples, you will quickly learn exactly just how far 5 products alone can truly go!

- If you so choose, you can state how many or what percentage that you are personally challenging yourself to use. For example, sheet of 20 stickers. Player says, I will use 5 stickers.

- You may use only a portion. Or if time (& or your motivation) allows, you may continue on and challenge yourself (like I really try and do) to use up every last piece & or product of whatever it is that you have selected!

- Some player combine all their products in 1 or 2 LO's. Other past players have both challenged & surprised themselves into creating upwards of 15 LO's. It all just depends on both time & creativity and or in the end...perhaps it's the products themselves!

- For example, in the case of a piece of paper, you could cut it into a ton of pieces. Each piece alone could go into multiple LO's and projects.

- We mainly want to see (at least) 1 LO. After that, all else is just extra toppings towards hopefully, what should make for a very creative & fun month worth of play!

HTH!

so I'd rather look through the store than work during lunch so here's my list:
Tim Holtz mask.
Making Memories tags (use at least 2)- I have no idea why I bought these.
Heidi Swapp ghost shapes (use at least 2).
Basic Grey journaling blocks (use at least 1) - I was disappointed with these so lets see how I do.
Basic Grey pp (use a portion) - I have a really hard time working with big floral patterns so this will really be a challenge.

I guess my theme this month is to work with stuff that gave me buyer's remorse, lol!

I'm in again. This is/was one of the hardest challenges I have done!!



I'm also very happy to have you back Sabrina!!

I hear ya!



p.s. Let me know what things made it extra hard. Reason being, I like to know these kinds of things so that I can be sure to try and make it more fun & or if needed, a bit easier! KWIM?

Again, Thanks for playing!



I think I just picked really hard things to use!! The KI stickers were not easy to use and the DCWV fun in the sun stickers werent easy to use since I didnt do much this summer since I have a new baby. But at least I challenged myself!!

I will use 3-5 of the sticky brads. From the Bucket of Magic I will use 5 flowers, the camera brad and the ribbon slide (hopefully). I will use 2 12x12 papers and the a few alphabet stickers from the More Than Just Paper pack.

In care of the tabs...

Alpha tabs - Baby ABC/BOM/Journal/Rolodex

Saying tabs - cards/tags

(There's not exactly many examples included)

use it or lose it challenge By IamSamScrapper





So I started another layout for this challenge and went to use the liquid pearls on my list. Brand new bottle and I could not get the stuff to come out! So I stuck the end of paperclip down in the tip to try and get it started but it seems the stuff is dried up or something cause it will not come out for me! Can I pick something else to use? If not, then I guess whomever wins can have the dried up mess...
