Challenge #68: Anything Goes!!

Hello Users!

This week at Use It Tuesday, we have one of our favorite challenges for you....


***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 noon EST on Friday 6 December. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE068 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.

The Design Team has outdone themselves this week. Here's some great inspiration to get you started:

Rachel made a box hanging calendar that can be paired with another gift. She used scraps from a card to make the box and some previously used ribbon to complete her project. 

Michele made this sweet little layout using a yellow flair button that is about 1 year old, plus some 2 year old Authentique word stickers that have been used for the first time!

Nicole used some old papers and stamps for this layout. Her stamps aren't always her "go to" accessory when she's scrapbooking, so this was out of the ordinary for her. Both the tag and the cheesin' phrase are stamped and cut out to create an adorable embellishment!

Jessica A made this super adorable album. The twine on the front is the oldest accessory on the project, having been in her crafty stash for over a year.

Valentina got a start on her Christmas presents. This jar filled with salt and herbs is decorated with a label made with an un-inked stamp she hasn't used yet. Also from her stash are the fabric pieces, recycled from a flower bouquet.

Jessica B started this layout (are you ready) THREE YEARS AGO!! It just wasn't working, so she set it aside until a fresh perspective convinced her to finish it off. She selected new pictures that jump started her inspiration.

Tracy prepared for a "gender unknown" birth a couple of years ago by stocking up on papers for both boy and girl. The girl ones got used...the boy papers sat for awhile until this cutie came along, ready to be scrapbooked! 

Tammy found this santa image and patterned paper in her craft stash from a couple of years ago. She added some older sequins and twine, and a few perfect scraps to come up with this beautiful Christmas card!

Heather scrapped pictures of her daughter from almost 9 months ago using elements from a digital kit that have been in her electronic stash for probably six years! The flowers and sentiment both come from that kit.

Becky made this adorable card with her Pebbles collection she's had for more than a year. The sad truth? She keeps buying it! She just loves it too much. The stick pinks have also been in the craft stash for a long time.

And our last Designer for this challenge is our Guest Designer, Sandi. Sandi won our Creatures challenge a few weeks ago and is back this challenge with another gorgeous creation. All the papers in her project are from her scrap pile. The twine was found at a resale shop three years ago and the sentiment was in a drawer with some other odds and ends. She doesn't even own that stamp set anymore!

Thanks for playing along with us, Sandi!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go clean up that stash and Use It!!
