Challenge #21: Holiday!

Hello Users!

In honor of the upcoming holidays, we want to see your Holiday creations! Christmas, Kwaanza, Hanukkah, wrapping, baking...whatever says HOLIDAY to 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 Friday 23 Dec. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE021 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:

Jane found this sweet frosty guy while cleaning out her computer files! Isn't he darling?! She used hoarded paper and stickles to give him life! Thumpety thump thump...Look at Jane go!

Nancy, like all good crafters, bought this blue shimmer paper as a souvenir on one of her trips a long while back! And those snowflake brads were also brought out of craft drawer retirement...we are so glad! Festive and fun all in one!

Siobhan used her hoarded SU paper from a few years back and used the LAST of the green tree paper (sniff, sniff) to make this one. That stamp is from TAC and is an oldie but a goodie. Although she was sad to use the last of her paper, the card brought her much JOY. ;)

Sonya dug up an old Stampin Up favorite for this darling card! 10 years of love for this baby...and I am talking the rubber! Her ribbon and paper are also out of the stash! Sonya gets 6 Stars! (Dd you get that...instead of 5? Look at the image...)

Dinah is making us all look bad by actually scrapbooking something that happened in the 2000's! ;) I mean really, Dinah! What a beautiful picture of her family last year...but her secret? The supplies are MUCH older than a year old! Ah, we thought so!

says "Merry Christmas" in Dutch to everyone while using her hoarded papers! And she made this while doing make and takes showing people that while using the same stash, you can make a totally different project just dressing up paper with embossing plates and dies! Wait! That would not encourage hoarding!

Haven is rockin' the holiday like it is 2009! All that paper...from a Creative Memories holiday pack made back then! By the way, her yard looks FABULOUS! 'Tis the season to be Clark Griswold!

Heather...we have all been good this year! Can we get an awesome gift box too?! The recipients of these are going to be over the moon (or tree depending on how much egg nog you have indulged in) and the best part? Heather used hoarded paper to make them!

Sheena, our winner from Challenge #20, made this darling creation using stash circa 2010...but she confessed that the papers were lost in her stash and we shudder to think of how long they could have gone unloved if it were not for this card! Sheena, you made the hoarders NICE list this year!

And last but certainly not least, is Sandra, our Challenge #19 winner! She was inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas and made this stunning album to be part of her Christmas decor! And the genius part...she used clothing eyelets! Genius! I think the elves are jealous. :)

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