I was so excited to be one of the winner's of Scrap Our Stash's September challenge. Each month, they pick a winner(s) from all the pages that are submitted throughout the month who are invited to be a guest designer the following month. I love the idea of using of my stash. I certainly have lots of it to get too :)))
Their main challenge this month is to do THAT Project! You know the one I mean - the one you've been putting off. Your challenge is: to do a project you've been procrastinating about it may be a particular layout, cleaning up your scrap area; finishing all those started project - anything goes - and you are encouraged to Scrap Your STASH!
They also have a Pagerize This challenge a couple times a month where you take something from a layout you like and create your own spin on it.
Here's what I wrote on their blog today:
When I saw Joni's page on the Pagerize This Challenge, I couldn't wait to get started. I just loved the layout of her page. I had so much fun pulling out ALL kinds of stash to use on my layout. I used a mask and glimmer mist in the top left corner. I used many different inks on my tag and pulled out an old background stamp to decorate it. I've had the vellum quote for over a year so I was happy to pull it out and use it on the tag as well. I wrapped it around the tag and attached it on the back, so no adhesive would show.
I used something else on my layout that I haven't used in AGES. Chalks! The butterfly at the top of the page was originally white, so I chalked it up and used my IRock to adhere a couple of gems to it. I also chalked up the Tattered Angels letters SWEET which were originally cream color.
Finally I added a little sparkle (because I alway have to have some kind of sparkle on my pages) and added some copper Stickles to the Basic Grey paper and prima flowers.
If you get a chance, run by there and check out the challenges here.
I also made my layout for the following challenges.
Studio L3 - wrinkle free distressing (my tag)
Basic Grey Challenges - Basic grey paper and sparkles
