Challenge #39: Anything Goes!

Hello Users!

We're opening the doors wide open this week!! Our challenge this week is "Anything Goes"....but don't forget to tell us in your post what hoarded supplies you used in your creation.

***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 September 21, 2012. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE039 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:

Caroli  used only hoarded items on her layout. The Bella Blvd papers are one of her favorites (she was hoping they'd last forever!) and the embossed cardstock is a hard-to-find treasure in Chile. But the most hoarded items is those beautiful chipboard letters!

Cathy wove us this masterpiece using the first package of Stampin' Up paper she bought (4 years ago) and an embossing folder that was gifted to her last Christmas.

Danielle claims her embossing folders were thrilled to see her again for this beautiful card using an resist stamping technique. The twine and buttons also came from her stash, leftover from other projects.

Haven claims the newest thing on her yummy layout is from last year's Black Friday sales. Besides that, she took two-year-old stickers and paper cast-offs to make this delicious delight.

Marjolaine found this card kit that has sat unused since 2009 because it contained some "unattractive" paper. She used gesso and ink to change it up a bit and made this great card set.

Stephanie pulled out her 5-year-old pink glitter cardstock and some old rick rack from her stash to make this ultra-adorable Tooth Fairy doorhanger for her daughter. Check out her blog to see how it works (what a clever idea!!)

Tammy pulled out this un-inked Sweet November stamp and cracked the package on her balloon dies to make this bright beauty. She also used some DSP, twine and buttons from her stash.  

Heather went to her "previously inked images" file and found these cute sea creatures given to her a number of years ago. She used them to create this fishy scene, along with that red glitter paper that was purchased with a box of supplies three summers ago.

Tess inked up this CUTE image for the first time in five (or is it six?) years, then added some hoarded ribbon and brads to finish this beauty off.

Victoria pulled out this unused butterfly diecut and some old paper to make this pretty card. It made my heart flutter!

Finally, Ruth (Tip Top) is our Guest Designer from Challenge #37. She dug deep into her stash to find this 4-year-old paper and some ribbon recycled from wedding stationary 3 years ago. But most impressive? That dress, made from a piece of (you'll never believe it) a car magazine from the 1930's!

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