New Crash your Stash Challenge!

All that is worth cherishing begins in the heart. ~Suzanne Chapin

Good morning!
Today is January 15 and we are starting a new monthly challenge at The Outlawz Challenges called “Crash your Stash”.

The purpose of this Challenge is to encourage you to use those items that are no longer trending and probably stashed away in a drawer. Forgotten and alone. So, we are here to help inspire you to dig those lovely items out and bring them new life!
At the start of the challenge, we will tell you what item we want you to pull from your stash and use and you will have a whole month to find, dust off and create something lovely with the item!

That simple!

And to make it better, We Are 3 Digital Shop is generously sponsoring us so every month, someone will win a lovely prize! 

Our item this month is


My card using mix of heart and round eyelets. I made several of these to be sent in to The Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive which is taking place right now. For more information you can check out the Website HERE.

Supplies: A2 card

  • Eyelets from my stash
  • Card stock from The Paper Studio (base) and Stampin Up!
  • Design Paper from American

  • Little butterfly punch from Target $1 bin
  • Rhinestones from His & Hers

Sunday Best ...

One doesn’t know, till one is a bit at odds with the world, how much one’s friends who believe in one rather generously, mean to one. ~D.H. Lawrence

This week we have a tic tac toe board from AJ. Love these boards. They give me options but still force me to work a bit out of my comfort zone! For my card I am using the boxes diagonally starting in the lower left hand corner (shimmering sequins), free space, and upper right hand corner (pink)

I am also using an adorable image called Sunday Best. Isn’t she sweet? I love how this card turned out.

Supplies for my 5 x 7 card:
Sunday Best from StarzStamps printed on Stampin Up! Whisper White Cardstock; Card stock from The Paper Studio (Base); Copics and ProMarkers; Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops; Spellbinder die, Romantic Rectangles; Stash: Friend element, Design paper, Pink card stock & Sequins
Studio G Glitter Glue

Here's the board

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to stop by The Outlawz Challenges where a new challenge starts every day of the week!
