Use your stash....

I love use your stash challenges because let's face it, it is harder to get out those older supplies when we have brand new ones calling our name. I still like most of my older stuff  and a challenge gives me a little kick to not take the easy way out. Scrappin Patch are having some challenges - posted on Wednesday's so if you're keen to join in you can find them here

The only real stipulations this week were: you couldn't have purchased any of the product this year, except for cardstock. That was actually not too hard... but I must admit I did get a couple of things out and then thought, oh they're probably too new. The newest thing I think used is those SC rubon stars and they are probably 2011.

Here is my page:

Edited to add product list:
Papers: Blue Alpha & Yellow Scrap (Ki Memories), Green (DCWV), Spot (October Afternoon), Graph (MME Lush). Stickers & Star Rubons (Studio Calico). Lettering: Alpha used for outline and numbers (American Crafts).

One thing to keep in mind when using older things, is some things actually don't keep very well. That science rubon took a fair bit of love and attention to get down. So use up those rub on's or else they may not work!

Have a great day all


  1. Now thats very cool. Have been finding the same with my rub ons too - quite a lot of them are a bit dodgy. Love how you used all the numbers across the bottom.
