Challenge #36: Uncut Paper

Hello Users!!

We are back with another challenge, asking you to dig into your stash and USE IT UP (on Tuesday). Today, we've got a great challenge that every paper crafter should be more than capable of participating in. We want you to use your UNCUT PAPER. 

Pull out those favorite pieces that you can't bear to part with. Or maybe challenge yourself to use that piece of ugly paper that sits alone on the shelf. We can't wait to see it!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! 
A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday August 3th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE036 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, we will invite one lucky participant, randomly chosen, to be a featured as a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Before we start, here is a little inspiration from our fresh cut Design Team:

Caroli brightened our world with this adorable layout using Bella Blvd paper that she bought months ago and couldn't bear to cut into. Don't worry, Caroli, I'll bet the paper is very happy to be included in such a gorgeous creation!

Haven wasn't sure what to do with this beautiful paper sitting in her stash. So, she pulled it and a handful of other elements out of her craft room to create this beautiful tribute.

Marjolaine took almost two years to decide which gorgeous side of these double sided papers to use. Check out her blog for more pictures of this super cute mini album. (Psst! The letters and gems were also from her stash).

What do you get when you pair hoarded paper, ribbons waiting for a special occasion and infrequently used inks? This gorgeous Christmas card by Cathy.

Danielle hoarded an idea, three canvases and some Bo Bunny paper, waiting for the time to perfect this Love, Laugh, Live canvas for her living room wall. Beautiful!!

Tammy loves to collect and hoard Basic Grey papers (any and all of them) and used her Kioshi pattern for this adorable tote. You MUST head on over to her blog and check out the gorgeous cards inside the tote.

Heather remembers buying this paper for a project idea when she first started paper crafting. The idea is also "hoarded", coming from a magazine cover in Winter 2009.

Victoria told us she'd much rather collect pretty paper than use it, but made an exception for us this week with her Japanese linen paper base and handmade paper pinwheel.

Stephanie pulled out her sewing machine and old thickers for this layout, also using papers she couldn't resist buying last Christmas!

And Melissa, our winner from our Patriotic Challenge created this Palm Trees and Pineapple layout for us using pictures she hasn't had the chance to scrap since March 2008!! Thanks Melissa!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
