For each month of 2011 I am going to set a new challenge. The idea is to use up goodies in your own stash - of course you may splurge now and again and buy something but there is no pressure to do so.
For the month of January the challenge will be -
All you need to do is create a card, layout, OTP - whatever you like, and as many creations as you like.
(My sample card using some rubons that I've had in my stash for a few years now.)
Use up all of those rubons that are just sitting in your stash - crying out to you "use me, please!!!!!"
If you also add items starting with the letter "r", you will get an added bonus entry into the draw. So you might create a card or layout using "ribbon" or "ricrac". Cool - you'll get a bonus entry. Too easy I reckon.
At the end of each month - all entries will be placed in the hat and you will win a little something - in this case you will win some rubons to add to your stash.
So - your time starts......................NOW!!!!!!!!
WHEN YOU ARE DONE, POP BACK IN TO THIS POST AND LEAVE A COMMENT AND A LINK TO YOUR CREATION, DON'T FORGET IF YOU CREATE MORE THAN ONE - LET US KNOW SO WE CAN GO AND HAVE A LITTLE LOOKIE AT YOUR PLACE.
1. Deb's card
2. Vicki's card
Happy creating everyone - enjoy!!!!!

I have used alphas by Echo Park, October Afternoon and Jenni Bowlin.
Other goodies used include papers and journal cards by Echo Park Summertime, Unity Camera Stamp, little playing card, teal string, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, dymo label and buttons.
This is a photo of the kids a few years ago out the front of Myer looking at the Christmas windows.
Thanks for looking.
I had lots of fun making these cards and could have gone on forever, but - there are more challenges ahead.

We needed to use some of our punches, dies and embossing folders and some old patterned paper.
I have used
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
Fiskars Grass punch
Sullivans Fence die
Dienamics Tree die
the patterned paper is a very old one - one of my original purchases. I think it was by K&Co.
I have also used some little paper flowers and mixed alphas.
The photo was taken on the side of the road near Mirboo North. I pulled over on the side of the road and found this beautiful spot. I was really pleased how the photo turned out.
Thanks for looking.

Mission 4 - challenge is to use up some of our patterned paper. I have plenty so my challenge was to decide which ones..........LOL!!!!
I opted for some WRMK papers which I had cut into and had bits and pieces leftover.
We also had the option of following a tutorial by Sheree where she showed us how to complete the layout.
I followed it mostly but had to alter a few bits and pieces as my photo was landscape instead of portrait so I didn't have as much room.
I have also added a doily which I used Glimmermist, my Li'l Handmade Daisies by Sandie, handmade tags, stamped doily, pink acrylic flower, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, kaisercraft pearls, pins, skeleton leaves, teal trim and buttons.
How is your weekend going? Been doing any creating yourself?
