Thanks for your patience this morning...we have a SNOW day here and so, all five are at home! I hope you think it's worth your wait, as I know that EVERYONE can play along with this challenge. I had fun with it and hope you will too!
This week for the Way's to Use it Challenge .... YOU pick the challenge by showing off your favorite new product and how you love to use it! That way we will have a parade os some of your favorite products and new ideas. I can't wait to see what you come up with! For examples....use a new stamp set, use a new tool, use a new embellishment or they don't even have to be new....just something you want to feature that you couldn't live without. Your product can be from Stampin Up or any other company you wish. This challenge is wide open.
Wow, I just finished uploading a card using my Cricut to make the brillant blue postage stamp. It is one of my new product, tool, whatever you want to call it, and i need to use it more. It fits this challenge.
Oh my gosh, you ladies are fast! I hope to get to join in sometime soon. My favorite new products will probably be old and tired products for most of you guys. I sure don't have a cuttlebug, but if anyone just hates theirs...
I'm feeling very creative today. This is a retake on another one of my cards, but i wanted to try it in blue. --My product is my CORNER PUNCH, I love using my corner punches, I think they give a card that extra something.
I love everyones cards so far, and think that everyone is going to be doing alot of cards today. --Awesome Challenge Julia, I think I'm going to do another card, maybe using my new PearlEx.
Ha! I couldn't narrow it down to just one! I used my crop-a-dile (which I am absolutely in love with), my key tag punch and paisley background. If I have time, I may have to make some more. I'm a tool junkie! Here's my card: cherish.

Location: My very hot stamp room, in Phoenix! It's a dry heat.
I used some of my most recent acquisitions, the small oval punch and a pair of earrings that I am giving as a gift. I have wanted to try a vellum card too, and love how it looks irl. Unfortunately my scan doesn't look as good, and my digital photos are even worse.
First - these really cool making memories eyelets with gems inside. The are really cool - the come in several colors in the package - I used two blue (just sayin!).
Second - the most amazing paper - CRATE Paper - I got it from Cindy - it is called the carnival collection. It comes in a kit - pretty reasonable. There were diecut letters too - so I used the die cut letter as well at the paper (double sided) from the kit. This paper feels amazing, looks amazing and really gives your stuff a POP!
Third - Sakura - I used them on nearly every project now - these AWESOME pens from Cindy (starlitstudio's) store. I used the clear stardust with always adds a pop of bling to your project.
Finally - the Crop-a-dile. I use that doo-hickey ALL the time now! I LOVE IT! It cuts through metal and chipboard. I am not sure if Cindy is still offering those as well, but you can check her store.
You can go to my blog - click on her store and search for them and the crate paper there.
