Challenge No. 124 - Shop Your Stash {Jan. 18 - Jan. 31

CHA is coming up next week, and I'm certain we'll all be itching to buy some new goodies, but we have to make room in our stash, right?

So I challenge you to shop your stash. Find some unopened packages and--using the challenge number 124--use:

12 embellishments from unused packages
4 patterned papers that you haven't cut into yet

I hope you'll play with us. Post a link to your creations on this thread at the Two Peas Pub.

Debbi T: It's embarrassing how many unopened packages of things I have in my stash! I challenged myself to use mostly "old" stuff and managed to use quite a few oldies. The solid blue background paper is the back of some really old Chatterbox patterned paper. Everything on here is at least a two years old (and some much older than that) except the K & Co. border, the Martha Stewart Punch, the micro-brads, the Cosmo Cricket paper, and the Jillibean Soup paper.

Michelle: I had fun with this layout. I dug out my box of winter embellishments. I had this unopened package of pewter Making Memories snowflake brads that I bought on clearance who know how long ago. I hardly ever use clue why I have so much wintery ribbon in my stash...I used 3 different ribbons. Also used some Heidi Swapp bling and Fancy Pants winter pattern papers.
