Challenge #52: All About Spring

Welcome Back Users!

We've got a theme for you this week and that them is: All About Spring.

What does spring mean to you? Showers, flowers, Mother's?
Lots of options this week, so we hope you play along!

***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!***

We're looking to see your fabulous entries on our Use It Tuesday site using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday April 5, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE052 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!

Now, let's find out what spring means to our Design Team:

Tammy brought us some sunshine using scraps of scraps (wow!) from her Little Sprout collection by Crate Paper from 2009. She also found a stamp and ink that haven't been used in awhile and finished off a package of bling for this bright and cheery card.

Danielle thinks spring and this Echo Park collection go hand in hand. She also used pictures from a family Easter celebration 2 years ago.

Heather went straight for this uninked Easter stamp, which has been unopened for almost 2 years. The flowers on the card were from her "extra" pile and provided the color inspiration for the card. She also polished off three pieces of paper from her scrap paper bin.

Sherri focused on Spring flowers and sprinkled several onto her layout. She also used a 2 year old Crate Paper collection called Random for her layout.  
Stacey had an under-used image stamp (only used once before) and a never-used sentiment. She also brightened the card up with that pretty yellow (and two years old) background paper.

Stephanie designed this Easter/Spring banner. The yellow and green rosettes are almost 3 years old and the rest of the papers, diecuts and buttons are a purchase from last year that have been barely touched.

Tracy  used patterned paper pieces from last year for this Easter layout The cardstock, ribbon and flowers all came from her stash of goodies. Isn't the detailed circle punch border on this layout fabulous? 

Nicole pulled out some cardstock colors that don't tend to get used, so they've been accumulating in her stash for awhile. She also did a clean of her craft room and found these great buttons for accent!! They've been collecting dust in the craft room for almost 5 years!

This week we welcome Evelyn as our Guest Design Team member. Evelyn used some patterned paper from a prize pack for her card. She loved it so much that she's hoarded it all this time (and decided to do a 6x6 card to make sure she could use it all up!). She also cracked the seal on two packages of bakers twine and found an un-inked sentiment to include. Great card, Evelyn! Thanks for playing.

We're ready to see your All About Spring creations. Go Use It!!
