Wednesday 8/14/19 - Strip Down your Stash

Post by Cassy » Wed Aug 14, 2019 8:15 am

Join us all month long in August as we post challenges that require us to use up our stash! We all have it, so why not finally use it - I challenge YOU!

A new Blue Plate Special challenge is posted each Wednesday and Saturday, and participants have until the 3rd of the following month to complete and post their creations.

Prize will be a $10 Gift Certificate to their favorite online store (random drawing).....

*any month that we have more than 50 completed layouts/creations, the prize will be a $20 Gift Certificate instead of $10.


One of the things that I love/hoard is patterned paper. I love it! I hate tossing scraps in the trash no matter how small or thin. So let's try to use them. Create a background using strips. They can be horizontal or vertical, multicolored or monochromatic. Be creative with it. Here is an example.

AWESOME example, Cassy! This is my problem area too. I'm assuming that our paper strips can be both solid and patterned paper? I'm extremely happy to get rid of as much of my stash as possible.

Scrapbooking....is there really anything else?

I rescue paper trapped in the craft store... I’m not a hoarder I’m a hero.
