I heard there has been a lot of Hodgepodge Hoarding going on so if you haven't been using your Hodgepodge Hardware...this challenge is for you...you know who you are! This week's Ways to Use It Challenge is to find ways to use Hodgepodge Hardware on your projects and stop hoarding it. I know there are lots of you who love using it all the time...play along too and show us lots of ideas! Please feel free to upload as many ideas as you like and share any tips you may have. Remember there is NO time limit or pressure.
There has also been no sketch challenge posted yet but there is a Just for Fun sketch posted by specialkx3 in the sketch challenge forum that is lots of fun and may tide you die-hard challenge freaks over.
Please remember to put WT44 in your keywords section and post a link back here and above all, have fun!
Oh, yeah! Hoarder here, too! I'm not sure why that is, except I think because the whole kit is a high-priced item, these seem like an expensive item to use on cards and I only want to put them on special ones. That is, in fact, not true. (in US value) If you figure the brads are worth about $4.00 for 100, then the other pieces of hardware are approximately $.17 each, less than a piece of card stock.
Another reason I know that I don't use them a lot is that I teach a weekly class of 15 or more senior ladies, who usually will do 2 of each card, so I just don't have enough hardware in 1 style to go around (about 8 each in the box).
For those of you who don't own the hardware, a soda can pop top tab can be substituted.
Here are a few of the many samples from the gallery:
I also wanted to add....thanks everyone for making last week's challenge so great with so much participation. I had such a busy week that I only was able to peek at a few of the cards, but what I saw was awesome and I can't wait to go through them all. I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week!
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I confess!!!! I confess. I have all THREE tins and love to look at them. I did use some on my Christmas cards this year and actually am going to give some up for a SAB class I am doing next week. I have three S10 clubs going each month, so I don't have enough to go around on those projects.............Can't wait to play!
Love the hardware!! And I too, am a horder. I use it, but never give those cards to anyone! I have done a couple in the past, one I am using in my workshops this month (totally cased from Michelle Fischer in On Stage). Melody, I love the pop-top idea (shhhh...won't tell my customers, I want them to buy the HH!). Will upload later, gotta run and serve lunch at school, Kerney
