Use it or lose it By Sweet Destiny

Ok, I'm thinking I must have cut myself short in the 5 items and should have had multiples in each cause I only ended up with two LO's and I used all my stuff except for a square of pink and a piece of ribbon about 6" long, guess I could try to make another using them up. Anyway here are the two LO's I made.

My Mom

Hi Crystie!...Not a problem (& that was a common first time question from last month!)

Basically,

1) You would want to pick or have only something that you are willing to lose.

2) However, with that said, when it comes to sets or multiple items or larger items (say like a big bag of flowers)...What we're mostly looking for is having you open up and use something that you've wanted to use, but are not using.

In the case of stamps, stickers, flowers, etc. you would let us know what the set looks like and how many you are willing to use or part with (in the case of not being used).

3) The great thing about this challenge, is it's up to you with what you'll do and how you'll do it. Some players were able to incorporate all 5 of their items into 1 LO, while others were able to expand their supplies and make 5-10 projects!

Just as long as you use *5 items* someway/somehow is all we're looking for!

Hi Vickie...Since the sign-ups go very quickly, I went ahead and put you down as Player #21 until you decide.

Also, LO's are the main focus for this challenge. However, in the process of using up our supplies, you are more than welcome to list, post & include all or any projects that come from using your main supplies!...All or any projects will be included & posted to pg. 1.

Whenever possible, just let us know what is what & what number supply & or when you have completely used an item up (for the tally).

Thanks & Hope That Helps!

Hi Stacey!

If you'd like, you are more than welcome to still play!

What I can do (and have done in the past for maxed out Challenges) is...We can include you as a Player in Waiting. That way, you can play along unofficially, and if & or when someone can't or doesn't end up playing, I can slip you into the slot!

JLMK!

- You chose 5 items = Yes.

- And those 5 items can be used in 1 LO = Yes.

- Or spread throughout multiple LO's = Yes.

- Like have 1 item in each LO for a total of 5, right? = 1 item in each LO or combined products per LO. No matter how many LO's or products, 5 different items overall.

For example, take 1 piece of patterned paper. Without even trying, you could get a border strip, paper flowers and an entire card from just 1 sheet alone. 1 product used, mutilple projects made! Or instead, you could just use the whole sheet for your background!

In the end, it doesn't neccessary have to be 5 LO's or projects. Some people make 1, others make 2 or 3...while others were able to stretch their products out to almost 10 projects!

Basically, what I am 'counting' for the tally is, the final moment that your particular product is completely used up (as needed/or chosen).

Hope That Helps!

I know the bottom pic is blurry, but I scanned it 3 times and couldn't get it to come out clear.
