The Winner of Round #1




Formally the "You Know You Have It" Challenge

Runs from December 15 to January 15

Hi and welcome!! This is the second round of this challenge. It was a pretty good hit last month, so let's see what we can do this month!!

This Challenge runs from the 15th to the 15th of each month. That way not everything is due at the end of the month. Plus if you have done all of your challenges, here is new one for ya!!


About the challenge. This is for that item in your stash that you thought was so cool that you just had to buy it. Then you got home and thought, what am I going to do with this?? Maybe it’s a flower, a sticker pack, some eyelets or brads. Or some other embellishment that was too unique to pass up. Go get that item, figure out a way to use it, and use it!!! [color]

Rules:

Item must be an embellishment of some sort – You may use a form of pattern paper. However, it must be used to embellish the page, not as the background.

Layout (or project) must be new as of December 15. One layout per person. You can share more if you like but, don't share to many!! As long as I have Why the's and people sign up, this challenge will continue!!

Anyone can join at anytime, but please remember...leave love for other players!!

I will post all entries on first page. (Remember to public embed)
Tell us what the item is…or take a picture of it before you use it and post that here.
Challenge will run until January 15. I will take pm's of favorites starting on the 16. If there are 12 or less entries send me 3 favs 13 or more send me 5 favs. There is no RAK for this, we are trying to get rid of stuff, not accumulate more But the winner's layout gets center stage on next months thread!!

I'm sorry no digi's for this, must be paper layouts.

I'll play Kimmy....because Lordy knows I have tons and tons of stuff I need to get used and out of my stash.

My item will be a large (4" I think) flower by Petaloo. I actually didn't pick this out, it was a grab bag deal and I got stuck with it...lol...so I hope this will count. I've tried trading them (there are 4, but only making myself use one) and tried selling them...but just can't get rid of them! LOL

Hello Everybody!!! Glad to have all!!!

I think using a tool, that makes an embellish would count. Make sure to tell us what the tool was and what you made with it!!

Pretty cool challenge. I know we've all got that something that made us so excited when we first found it, and now has us scratching our heads in bewilderment. I'm a tool junkie, so if I find time to join in, it will probably be with something I haven't tried yet. That won't be too hard to do since I had the Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment punch for about 6 months before finally using it last weekend. Gasp!

Mrs. Momma, no worries, this runs until the middle of January. Take you time - and sending mojo you way!

If you use a tool, make sure to tell us what embelly you made with it.

Good evening everyone! I'd like to get in again this month!! I have so much stuff I could open my own store...lol. Kim you mentioned the PSB...I have 3 of them completely full of embellishments. They are so full they barely zip shut! I think I could scrap for a year and not buy a single thing.

I'm in. I just posted my lo for Dec on the last thread. Great job everyone!!

Nope, just find something else that makes you say, why did I buy this? Then use it. I just found enough why stuff to last the entire year of 2010!!! I think I might start a recycle it box swap group!!!

I probably have a bunch of stuff myself, although I usually weed through mine and put it in a give-away box, then let my sister and my brother's gf go through it. Both of them scrap too.

This is a good idea. Sometimes I might buy something just because it is on clearance then I never use it. I seem to collect stamps, and transparencies and don't use them.

yay Darlene! I'm so glad you had fun in the snow! We got 26 inches at our house in South Jersey. I'm content to just watch the snow outside I don't want to get cold and wet...It is cold enough inside! (We have a wood stove down stairs to heat the house so we keep the central heat at 62 or else it gets to be like 80 degrees upstairs during the day.) But b/c it is so cold the heater and the stove combined are only keeping it at 63 here in my room! BRRRR! Aslan (my dog) also is so funny in the snow...he jumps off the steps and just gets a faceful of snow! so cute!

The only snow we've gotten is just some flurries and none has stuck. I've seen snow, that is plenty for me!! Give me back my sunshine and 80 degree weather!!!

Well..on opportunity has arisen for me to get rid of some of my unwanted stuff...lol...just a small RAK for a friend! Its amazing how others like the stuff I don't! Thats what makes scrapping so cool!

I've been trying to come up with something.... If we can use a product.. that we bought that I don't know what I was thinking lol when I bought it.. its NEVER been used.. So if that counts.. then I'll have to figure out how to use it.. cause I still can't figure out what to do with alcohol inks. and all the things to go with it..... I bought Tim Holtz's 2 packs about 6 months ago .. and NEVER used them... cause I pretty much don't know how to lol THIS could be a challenge!

You have the green light - go google, learn, create!!!!

The only snow we've gotten is just some flurries and none has stuck. I've seen snow, that is plenty for me!! Give me back my sunshine and 80 degree weather!!!

Well..on opportunity has arisen for me to get rid of some of my unwanted stuff...lol...just a small RAK for a friend! Its amazing how others like the stuff I don't! Thats what makes scrapping so cool!




I believe that after Christmas I am going on a MAJOR perge of stuff I know that no matter what kind of challenge I or someone else creates I am NEVER going to use. I have a cousin that has recently started scrapping, doesn't have a lot of $$, so I will likely dump a lot of it on her. Stickers I may try to give to a preschool or like. It's like I said somewhere else, I am a cardstock scrapper and I need to stop trying to do things that just work for me!!

I gave all my old stickers to my brothers gf. She loves stickers...lol...she never left the sticker sneeze era...lol!! I need to do that too I suppose, go through the drawers and get rid of more. I haven't kept it in hopes of using it though, I kept it b/c I was too lazy to clean out my stuff..lol!

JCI. I don't have any ideas just yet. All I know is that I know there's a lot of "why's" in my stash. I think I'll tackle this one after the 1st of the year. It's due on 1/15 right??

I took 2 car loads of stuff to this house thing by the hospital. It's hard to describe it, but it's like a Ronald McDonald House. They mostly house the families of premie babies that have no place to stay, and no ability to pay to stay anywhere. Since we live in such a rural area, some people may have to drive 3-4 hours to get to such a big hospital! They were happy to have my old stickers and "art supplies." They put it in sort of a community room for everyone!

My mother in law has just started scrapping herself and is still pretty new to it, so when i go through my stuff i put it in a box and give it to her when she visits. She loves getting these little 'presents' from me.

Does paper count? If it does, I think I will just use this LO. I swore I would never buy DCWV paper again, then at J's one day, they had this paper for like $7 and I just couldn't pass up the sale. Once I got it home, I never did like it. I used it for a LO of my mom's birthday right after I bought it and haven't touched it since. I still don't care for the paper, but you can't see very much of it anyway.

If the "why" item needs to be an embellie...just let me know, I'm sure I can get another LO done.

A shoulder I could always count on.

Hi everyone...Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Sorry I've been MIA for almost a week. I can't believe how time is flying. I'm only getting @ 4 hours of sleep at night with work and getting ready for the holidays. I missed voting on the poll, but I did turn in my favs to Kin. Congrats...you all did a great job.

Hopefully things will slow down here in a few days. Is anyone else ready to pull their hair out? lol.

I'm jealous of you on the east coast with all the snow. We only have @ 3/4 -1" of snow. I'd love to have what you have. The weather report this morning said 40 degrees and rain on Christmas. I'm so bummed. I love snow!

Hope everyone has a great holiday. Be safe. TTFN.

Stephanie, I can't stand the DCWV paper either! I have a bunch of the adhesive backed stuff and have no desire to use it. So, the DCWV that you used is it the pattern paper behind the photo?

All the paper in the LO is DCWV summer stack. The background sheet, the top pp sheet and the bottom strips. Also, the title block and journaling block were also both out of the stack, I just cut them on my sil.

I think after Christmas, I will do some major pp purging and get rid of the stuff that I just ain't going to use.

I think I've decided to use the metal tag maker I bought on clearance from sb.com a long time ago. I hope to get a lot of scrapping done between the holidays since I don't work.

Happy scrappin and Happy Holidays everyone!

Woohoo! I got mine done! I decided to use the Tim Holtz journaling tickets that have been sitting on my desk for months and months! I finally managed to use some! Man, I love this challenge!

I will get caught up here soon, probably after Christmas weekend!

This challenge actually motivated me to try and use some stuff. I just finished another lo using some stickers I bought back in March that I had never used a single sticker out of the sheet. So...thanks for the inspiration Kim!!!
