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.

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.

I hoard ALL my supplies. I am doing this challenge. I am going to go back and look over the rules but do we just do one and turn it in or do we make as many pages as we can to use up all the stuff we've hoarded over the years? Dumb question I know but I have ALOT of stuff, ya know.

Super cute Artesha!! I think I have those Thickers....

Welcome Sue!! Yep, we are really low-maintenance here (mostly because I have an infant and don't have a lot of time to manage a challenge, but know at least for me that this is a manditory one!)! So enter one page, enter 10, up to you!

Oh Mia, that is SO cute!!! I left you some sugar and am off to update the first post!

Hi all, please find my entry for this month's challenge. I am still deciding if I will use this layout for just this challenge or others as well, I suppose it depends on how much scrapping I get done during the month. Anyway, all the products used on here, including the photo are at least one year old if not longer. The papers were from Creative Memories when I first started scrapbooking so about 3 years ago. The lettering would have to be at least a year old and I used Tim Holtz crackle paint to give them a little bit more detail and the photos have been there since 2005 No twist used this month however I haven't used my crackle paint in just about 2 years lol.

Hoarded project #2 for this month.

Nothing here less than a year old except MAYBE the doily die, which I think I got last May.

I haven't used the leaf stem diecut in a while - like so long ago that it might as well be a never used toy.

I have a ton of stickers. I hardly ever use them, especially after I got the original Silhouette and even less now that I have the new one.

So, my hoarded item on here is those Mrs. Grossman's stickers. I have no iea how long I have had them!

LOL Pat!! Maybe I was thinking of you when I dreamed up that twist... No, I lied, I'm sure it was ME! My parents won me a Sizzix Sidekick at a silent auction last spring and I have yet to use the thing... I finally got the die pads to use with it and am GOING to make rosettes if it kills me!

Love the latest entries everyone! I've sprinkled love and am off to update the front again!

For this one it's the alphabet stickers, I did take them out of the package so I don't know what brand they are, but I bought them 5 years ago and never even used one.

Villa Julia By BoBecca77
In this one it's the keys(bought at J's) the lined pp, and the rub ons all in my stash for years.

LMAO!!! THANK you, KIM!

I was gonna say... Um, Pat... pot-kettle perhaps??
Yes, sadly I've had the thing almost a year and haven't used it, BUT I have a 7.5-month-old excuse! What's YOURS?!

That said, I did break it out yesterday and cut some of those snowflake rosettes from the die I bought at the last expo I went to... in October... Pretty fun, but man are they hard to glue together!

Becca - Thanks for joining! I'm impressed you don't have any tools you haven't used, but that's great! And great pages with old goodies!

Kim - Yep, I plan to keep this one going. It's a motivator for me, but it seems to be gaining interest around here!

Adding Becca's pages to the front and I'll be acu!

This Swirlydoos Challenge is going to be the end of me, I'm telling you. At least in the box, my Silhouette is safe from being lost in a pile of scrap c*r*a*p.

NICE Chaos Pat!! Did you get the number of that creative tornado?? Wow... I wish I HAD a scrap room for a creative tornado to hit... When I'm in the thick of a project, I comandeer the dining room table... since ds has started eating solids and we are trying to make sure we all sit down together (at the table) to eat, I'm getting less and less space! My stuff is all squashed in a corner of our living room for the cats to play in! (Those little furwitches get more playtime in my scrappy stuff than I do these days...)

ANYwho... I'm done whining... Love your view by the way! Bet it's gorgeous in springtime!

Happy birthday Becca!!!

Thanks, Sonja. It got me through the Round 5 cut.

This week, I have to create an Art Journal, yet ANOTHER project that I've never attempted nor have any experience with.

But Heidi did an awesome tute, so I think I can muddle through this one ok. But the competition is so ... TOUGH.

Got one to turn in!


Heaven Whispers by GentlewoodFarms


BoBunny Forever Fall papers from 2011
Black Bling - fragment leftover from 2010
Rub-on Text - so old I don't even remember where I got it!

I used my new hexagon die - I think only once before and it had shuffled to the bottom of the stack, so I know it's been a while.

My little wind up roses have been on hiatus, as well as my leaf punch.

Hoarded the BG Two Scoops for years and years... actually the oldest things here are the tiny little pastel flowers. Nothing on here is newer than 5 years old -except the punches on the pp on the left - both of those I picked up a few months ago.

I used some rub-ons for that GTO layout and they kept coming off, all in one piece like a sticker that wouldn't stick. So, I went with the old stickers instead and threw out the rub-ons.

Hi all JCI and ACU now to go and do some housework and tidying up before I need to go back out on the farm to do some more work. Wish I could just go back to bed though as I hate my 4am starts especially when it's your first day back after having days off

I'll be posting another one sometime tomorrow, depending on whether or not I have to go to work in the morning (they're already talking about the roads being a mess and the temp is falling steadily so I expect they will call school tomorrow).

I started with ONE plan and ended up finding a more BETTER plan so I did that instead, but since both plans involved hoarded stash, it worked out anyway.

I'm loving this challenge, Sonja. It's very VERY cool to see my stash pile dwindling ... not FAST, but it IS going down!

I agree Pat.
I don't always post my hoarded layouts in this thread but I definitely am in the MODE of using up older items.

That's it exactly, Tina. I've gotten into the habit of looking through my old stuff to find something rather than looking for something new just because I have a compulsion to go find something new.

I still LOVE the new stuff, but I've definitely managed to curb my spending and I'm buying more of the kinds of things that I can use over and over again, stuff like masks and mists and gels rather than patterned paper and embellishments.

More bang for the buck as it were. Eventually, I'll have to find some new paper, but if I ever get to the point where I can't find something in my stash to play with, it's time for my stash to get purged and start fresh.

Here's another one I did last night. The only things new on here are the birds, the pink flowers and the spray I used on the flourishes.
My friend picks on me about how much of the Basic Grey Lemonade line I still have because when it came out she still had an lss and I harrassed her for at least about doing a reorder on it so I could get some. She will be proud that I finally used some.
So the hoarded items are: Basic Grey Lemonade papers, the chipboard flourishes (Rusty Pickle so you know how long I have had those!).
I got out my border punches and used several of them as well as some ancient Luminarte paint to add a little glimmer to the flourishes.

So true so true - I post mine though because it motivates me to do more. Which is why I appreciate Sonia's hosting this. Unfortunately I seem to be in buying binge mode again...stop me before I paper again!

Mary, I'm getting ready to post a layout that uses Rusty Pickle PAPER. They've been out of business HOW long now?

OH about 4 years maybe? I was never a fan of their paper - too many scary Santas and Easter
Bunnies...but I did like some of their other products especially the chipboard.

OH - well, you know Farmhouse Black, I assume? My first heritage class that I taught, I used this paper and didn't realize the company had gone out of business. Between the time I created the page and the class itself, my student count had exploded and I had to find some more of the paper. It was sold out all over the world. I ended up having to scrounge around and find enough to teach 25 ladies a heritage project when I'd originally planned for only six!

I bought a couple of sheets from Canada, some few more from England, and got the last package in the entire world from Australia. I've been hoarding it forEVER. I still have six sheets, and a project must be DEAR to my heart for me to pull and use it.

This one was.

Here's my entry. The hoarded items is a pack of paper from My Mind's Eye - Lost and Found Two. I have had these papers since the collection was first released and loved them so much I couldn't bear to use them. But when I came across them again the other day putting away other paper, I felt "now is the time"!

I went low-key on the twist - a digital die cut file for tab file folders that I have had for ages but never used.

OH Kim they are just adorable.

Here is one more from me. The Kaisercraft pp is the newest and it has been in my stash since last summer - I bought it purposely for these pix.
Everything else ranges from 2 years back to 7 or 8 years back.

OMG you guys are SO patient with me! I can't believe it's taken me nearly two weeks to get cu on this challenge... I'll update the front tomorrow and sprinkle a little love, but I'm finally sharing a few of my own!

All the cardstock I used are old - most from a little 8x8 paper pack I bought at M's years ago.

Bath Buddies By SonjaC
This one all the papers are old old old! Even the ones I used to cut out the fish, seaweed and flourishes came from my scrap stash. (I'm SO proud!)
Thanks again for your patience and love and I'll share the love soon!

Laffs! By NMscrapper

Patterned papers and bling are from a club kit at least two years old. The rub-ons have been in my stash so long I don't even remember what brand they are, and I've saved the flowers for "something special" far too long!

Love Rusty Pickle!!

I did it!! I finally got the front updated!!

I SO enjoyed seeing all your fabulous pages this month, everyone! I actually saw some paper I know I have and need to use!

This challenge is still open until EOD tomorrow if anyone manages to pull off a page or two. Otherwise I'll open the new challenge Friday morning. Thank you so much for playing!

Sonia I think you are amazing that you even find the time to scrap forget about running a challenge. You are doing just fine.

Here is my last one for this month. The paint is so old I was surprised it wasn't all dried up. I was going to use a crackle one but one was dried out completely.

PP is Kaleidoscope by My Minds Eye
When I started scrapping I had great ideas of making my two adult children each an album. I bought tons of stuff (we know how that is) most of it with specific projects in mind. What I didn't realize then was how slow a scrapper I am and how many pictures and projects I would want to do.
The kids albums are being worked on, finally, in the last two years (I haven't speeded up any though) so I am finally using all those goodies.
