Today is a special day! I am the Guest Designer at Use it Tuesday:) This challenge is so needed by me. As a hoarder I need all the encouragement I can get to USE MY STASH!
This week the challenge is Birthday. I went a step further and challenged my self to not only use the Birthday Theme but to use my paper scraps instead of using Birthday Themed paper.
Tip: I have a screw and nails organizer that I keep left over stickers in. When a set of alphabet stickers/ number stickers are to the point that it is difficult to use the sheet any more, I cut them apart and put them in the organizer. (They are organized alphabetically an there are drawers for punctuation and another for numbers. Then when I need a mixture of sizes or designs I pull from the organizer. This prevents waste:)
Cardstock and Paper: All from my paper scraps. My paper scraps are organized by color in Cropper Hopper's 12x12 envelopes. The envelopes are stored in a crate.
Numbers: American Crafts Thickers
Title Sticker: Pebbles Inc. Birthday Boy I think this is about 5 years old.
Make a Wish Sign: I think this is from when I first started scrapping back in 2002. The only thing older than this onthe layout is the photos which are from 1995! LOL
Ribbon: Target and I think it's about 5 years old!
Circle Punch: EK Success Paper Shapers 2.75" Circle
So how did I do? Do you think I put my hoarded stash to good use?
Use it Tuesday: Birthday
