Challenge #64: Use Two Hoarded Items

It's Use It time!!

This week, you get to dig into your scrappy stash and come up with TWO hoarded items to use on your project. That's right, It's USE TWO week at Use it Tuesday.  
Use two hoarded items on your project.
***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 up using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday October 4, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE064 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 are the beautiful projects the design team came up with this week:

Rachel found a digital stamp in her collection that she pulled up for this card. She also had a metal template for doing the fancy cutting that's never been used. It might go right back to the bottom of the crafty stash, since it was a bit difficult to use!

Becky has a stash of baker's twine she's been hoarding (and adding to) for quite awhile. She pulled some out to use on this week's layout. She also found the "Special Event' ticket in an antique shop a number of years ago.

Jessica A cheered up a friend's day with this happy card. The flower stickers and embroidery floss are both over the 3 year mark and quickly approaching their forth birthday!

Michele's super sweet card this week uses Pebbles Chips, chipboard pieces that she bought 2 years ago when she started scrapbooking again. She also used an American Crafts sentiment sticker from a book that has been severely under appreciated - only 7 of 58 stickers used so far!

Tracy is a Use It Tuesday over-achiever this week. Instead of two items, she went with three! The patterned papers have been in her stash for about 4 years, but they're not as old as the chipboard title or the felt butterfly, which are both closer to six-years-old. 

Valentina made this gorgeous work of art this week to celebrate a golden anniversary. The paper doily on the front is VERY old and the flower bouquet for the inside of the book card is so old she can't even remember what it was recycled from! Beautiful!

Tammy pulled out one of her favorite things to hoard....Echo Park! This one is made from a mini-kit that's been waiting for love. She also found some Glitz Flare buttons that matched (lucky!). Oh, and don't forget the pictures...they're oldies by a few years too.

Jessica B practically gave herself a heart attack on this challenge, using a very beloved hoard. That flower paper, bought two years ago for a premium. But, the colors were a perfect match for this sweet picture, so she was determined to use it. The yellow shimmer paper as been in her scraps for about 3 years too. 

And, Hilde is our Guest Designer this week. She used this origami shirt that she's been hoarding and a dress die-cut she got off of ebay. Of course, then she wasn't sure what to do with then. She finally decided on this his and hers congratulations card, making it work with scraps that matched the colors in the die cuts.

Super cute, Hilde!! Thanks for coming back to play with us again.

That's it for the Design Team today, but watch for more inspiration later this week on
