Challenge #12: It's a Two-fer!

Hello Users!
We have a double fun one for you this time...

Please make a project that has TWO HOARDED ITEMS on it!
I can see you starting to panic...don't worry! I promise you will survive and come up with a darling project worthy of those goodies!

***REMEMBER: We need to hear what hoarded supplies you used your post! Spill it, sisters! Let us cheer you on!!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday August 5th . No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE012 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:

Heather actually took this challenge up a notch; she used 3 hoarded items! What an over-achiever! :) See that background paper and scalloped oval? They were sitting on her desk. And Riley was uninked until now. Gotta love that darling moose!

Jane has found many treasures in her stash! Her patterned paper came from an unopened SU pack...and her stamp is from Hero Arts...never seen ink! Her project bloomed into something perfect, don't you think?

Nancy did what so many of us do...purchased paper with great intentions to use it and forgot about it. This gorgeous Core'dinations paper was forgotten as well as the embossing folder. I am so glad they found one another because they are a perfect pair for the two-fer challenge!

Sonya also is an over-achiever (ha ha!) who used 3 hoarded gems on this beauty! The paper, ribbon, and stamps were are unused until she put together this card. Using 3 hoarded items is growing on you now, isn't it?

Dinah first off, has the cutest little family EVER! If you can see past that, you will find she used old Thickers and October Afternoon paper from 2009! (I won't admit it, but I have pictures older than that...they are sitting in a pile waiting to be cropped...shhh.) As she was cleaning, she found the Christmas stickers she added on! Ho-Ho-Honestly adorable!

France, along with many of the girls on our DT, used more than 2 hoarded items. Take a look at this list: the butterfly, bottles, vintage pen nibs, grungeboard, rub-ons, and...drum roll please...the chipboard semicircle! A-mazing!!

Haven has really stopped buying new paper. Really! I know, she deserves a medal! She used up paper from her stash, the ribbon was recycled from a thank you gift she received last weekend...and the flowers and brads were dusted off to make this card pop!

Sami joined us with these darling girls! Paired with her hoarded paper and ribbon, this took me on a trip down memory lane! Don't those dots look like snowballs?! Perfect!

And finally, our awesome Guest Designer JAN made this beauty with hoarded ribbon and paper! Sugar and spice and hoarded things make this one nice! Thanks Jan for designing for us!

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