Default CAS568 - What Am I Saving This For? - January 13, 2020

Challenge Title: What Am I Saving This For?
Hostess: Jennifrann (Jen)
Keyword: CAS568

Date: Week of 1/13/2020

I know you, because I am you. And I know that you have something in your craft room that you are saving because you don't want to use it up. I know it's fabulous and so pretty and you're saving it for something--but what? Sometimes we have to ask ourselves "What am I saving this for?" and use those wonderful supplies. Share that beauty with the world! And then go shopping for more....


CAS or Clean and Simple Weekly Challenge: Use something that you've been hoarding because you don't want to use it up. Is it gorgeous DP? Fun embellishments? That last bit of favorite ribbon? Let's see it!

DT Samples:

Jen

1. There is no deadline to play along with the CAS challenges.
2. Take all the time you need to finish and upload your card.
3. Upload your card to your gallery and link back to this thread so we all can see your project.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please feel free to combine the CAS challenges with any other challenge.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your project is seen.


The challenges are to provide inspiration and to get us stamping, so have fun and follow your heART. We can't wait to see what you create!



Last week's favorite is this beauty by Marg:

Bush-fire Skies


Congrats and don't forget to grab this badge if you'd like!

You DO know us, Jen. On my card is something that I try to use every last bit. May that's hoarding in a sense.

Thanks for the push! I dug out my distress oxide inks that I was fearful to use and created a cute card!

I removed the first card that I uploaded for this challenge....just felt it wasn't in the "spirit" of the challenge. Did another card with something that I REALLY horde(and will continue to). : )

Here is my card: Birthday with Banners by lovinpaper - at Splitcoaststampers

I have very little of this twine left and only 1/4 of a piece of cardstock in the blue color, and maybe 1 sheet of the white. I guess I am trying not to hoard it anymore.

Not quite saving it because of its beauty, but hating waste. Here is my card: coffee stamping.

Just noticed that my Wobble Bear card is not showing up in the gallery for this challenge....did I mess up in how I put the challenge info in the title of the card?

Oh my gosh, what a great challenge. I am guilty of buying supplies and then "saving them" for some special occasion. I forced myself to use some of my new goodies and made this:

Terrific challenge idea, Jen! I got side-tracked sorting through all the one-of-a-kind unique things in my stash, but it was good because they are all organized now (for a little while). I used a fun shaped brad this time.

LOL - I knew what to use right away. I've kept the Stampin Up Irresistibly Yours specialty paper so long I forgot I had it! (Found on a recent organization / consolidation effort.)
Thanks for looking!

I am playing Challenge cardmaking, and hopefully, catching up on some old challenges as well. Challenge: use something y9u've been saving for some reason. Mine is my last crocheted flower crocheted by my Mom some 10 yrs. ago! I thought it a fitting little gift as this card's recipient was also the chosen teapotter for a May 2019 Teapot Challenge to give her encouragement on the 2-yr. anniversary of her Mom's death, who was her cardmaking buddy and mentor!

My card is for an SCS friend who's birthday was missed in January and who's May 2019 Teapot Challenge was missed. The theme is "thinking of you" since her birthday was so many weeks ago, and I wanted her to know I was thinking about her on her birthday and after as it became more and more belated! In addition, this theme was an option for her Teapot Challenge as well!

Here is my card: Oops! Things Got Missed!
