Thursday again already and time for another Ways to Use it Challenge! Thanks for joining me here today...hope you all have time to play along! If you don't have time today...please feel free to play all week as there are no time limits!
This week my challenge for you is to find ways to use Coasters in your designs. You can use coasters in a card or any other project you wish that incorporates them! Coasters can be purchased on-line, at your local scrapbooking store, sometimes at Michael's...maybe even your dollar store! I hope you can find them as they are loads of fun!
Please remember to put WT112 in your keywords section and post a link back on this thread so that we can all see your work! If you have an example in your gallery you wish to share, that is fine but please limit it to one and make sure you make another. This is a challenge to make something new after all!
Below are a few examples to get you going! The gallery is FULL of great ideas...I only had time to pick a few. If you have the time, click on this COASTER LINK ...it will show you all the samples in the gallery using coasters!
Wow---i am coaster crazy!!!Just did a big buy with my demo group and we did the coaster books! I love the boxes and i am just finishing up a 'welcome sign'---so, today may be the day I finish it, just so i can post it. I already have a bunch of stuff in my gallery, but i need to put something new in---thanks for the challenge!
I just got some from the $1 bin at Micheals. They have pictures on them but I thought I could cover them with DP. I've never used coasters before so thanks for the challenge, Julia. Will have to do this after work.

Here's one I just uploaded the other day. It's a group of coasters that I had each one of my DD's classmates draw on one side and write a teacher appreciation note . Then on the other side I decorated it with DP and put on both a 2007 and 2008 calendars. Also I scaned in the class picture made it smaller and added it. Lastly I added in the teacher survival kit list. TFL
I've seen so many cute things done with coasters lately, I've actually got tropicalichick (Amanda) mailing me some AS WE SPEAK!! However, I don't think they'll get here in time, hence my need to SHOP Thanks, Julia!
Anne-Marie - but everyone calls me A-M
I don't have a single coaster and no store close - but I have chipboard I planned to use in the cuttlebug then was not brave enough. I see Julia embossed the coaster. I need to figure out if two B plates are used - seems like it would be too thick.
Wow! Cool challenge, Julia! I have some round ones in all different sizes that I bought a while back! I'll have to see what I can come up with! I'm in the market for some square ones if anyone is selling to Canada...
