Default Stash Busters - October 2013 Week 2

If you are anything like me, you have tons of older product stashed away in corners of your scrapping area, gathering cobwebs while you concentrate on newer items. Wouldn't it be nice to bust it out and use it up instead of storing it? Well, Stash Busters to the rescue! I am challenging you to use up certain items from your stash and then link your completed layout here so we can all get excited over it! I'll post a new list each Thursday this month (except the 31st), and you have until the last day of the month to scrap your layouts using the products. You can play any of the challenges at any time, but if you complete all four layouts by the 31st, you will get an honorable mention for the month! Sound fun? Let's get started.

Please use:
3 patterned papers that are older than one year
Bookplate
Journaling die-cut
Fibers

You can use additional products, but you must use at least one of each of the items listed. If you don't have an item in your stash, please don't rush out and buy it! Just substitute a similar item from your stash. When posting in the gallery, please use keyword STASH13Oct2, include a description of how you used each item, and link back to this post. Happy hunting!

My sample page: Student of the Month

STASH13Oct2 Gallery (coming soon)

Oh, bookplates are my nemisis. I love them, but can never use them very well. This is truly a challenge for me.

I hear you, Beth. That's probably why I still have 8 out of a pack of 10 - LOL!

I had to see what the heck a "bookplate" was...then I had that ah-ha moment and realized I have a lot of those! I agree with Beth though...they are my nemisis! hmmm...how to use it!? Should be a fun challenge!

this is what I figure it is...

Search at Joann.com

someone will have to let me know if I'm wrong, cause this is what I was planning on using (not the same one but something similar).

That's what I call a bookplate, so that's what I'm using. And actually one I bought fro Joann's about a decade (or more?) ago!

Just finished my layout, but will wait until tomorrow to use the daylight to get better photos. My pics are always crappy when I take them inside.

That is good to know, I have plenty of those metal things. You can even use paper as a bookplate. I always thought a book plate was something used to label a book, either the metal plate on the outside (which I never thought of) or a paper one originally used on the inside of a reading book to label it with your name or when given as a gift.

I am excited about this page! I just finished the page, I think I spend too much time over thinking each element, that and reading, and running about town and fixing food, and helping neighbors save food from their freezer. Plus I spent way too much time trying to update my Cricut only to find out that I have to use an old version that is not compatible to use with a Mac.
Anywhoo, tomorrow I will show you my page using some fun elements that I have been having trouble using on a layout, as well as those stash busters that have been hanging around my studio for way too long.

Another fun to work on project. It must be from hunting down all those older embellishments. And a few new ones........

I really need to take better photos...here it is despite the crappy photo:
A Wild Day

Think I got everything I'm supposed to. I might have cheated on the journalling die cut a bit . The book plates were purchased years and years ago from JoAnn. They are such an odd color that I can't use them very often, so I'm thrilled that I managed to find some paper that mostly matched.

Totally loving these challenges!

Thumbs up Week two...done!

Here's my page for this weeks challenge! The paper is from 2009-2010, the stickers (journaling die cuts) are older! I have the whole hodgepodge set, I've bearly touched...maybe now I'll dust it off and use up some of these bookplates and brads!

The Hunt

Here is my page. For the fibers requirement I have a yo-yo flower made out of a scrap of gold lame fabric and a string of burlap.
