Challenge #40: Use Your Scraps!!

Hello Users!

Welcome to another fabulously crafty Tuesday. This week, we're bypassing those
wonderful untouched supplies on your shelf and heading straight for the scrap pile.
That's right, please make a project that shows us how you Use Your Scraps!!

***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 October 5, 2012. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE040 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, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Cathy searched all corners of her craft room to find scraps leftover from various projects. There's even some scraps from some packaging in there.

Caroli tells us she has an addiction to saving even the smallest bits of pretty paper for mosaic project such as this beautiful layout.

Stephanie used her scraps to make these gorgeous hexagons that highlight her sleeping cutie.

Danielle also went with hexagon to create her adorable hopscotch layout using left over MME paper from several older collections.

Haven thought out of the (sushi) box and up-cycled this green grass from a take out container. Would you believe she also used the first stickles bottle she ever bought....4 years ago!!!

Tammy pulled out these purple pieces from her stash, and paired them with an unused cuttlebug die and some rub-ons she found at the bottom of a box (don't we all know that feeling!)

Heather hunted through her desk mess for little treasures to pair with these scraps from her over-flowing scrap storage. The rub-on was also purchased many moons ago and finally sees some use!

Tess paper quilted us a treasure with this "Top" notecard. She also used some scrap ribbon and an image she received in a swap 2 years ago.

Marjolaine put her scissors on repeat to cut and clip these hexagons for her creation, a scraplifted layout from Heidi Swapp.

Victoria made the mistake of misting on embossed paper several months ago and the warped result sat unused until now. She also dove into her scraps to create the other accents on the card and put a previously un-inked stamp to good use. 

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