Challenge #3 ~ Use Your Stash

I am learning that it's not good to buy up all the new releases when you have so many sitting in boxes and cupboards in your house. I am trying desperately to organize and purge my supplies. I have come across some amazing paper lines that just get stuck on the bottom of my ever growing pile of papers.

I decided to use the papers that I juts had to have and didn't get around to using. Like this S.E.I. paper called Winnie's Walls. I looked everywhere for it and was thrilled when I got my hands on it. I kept looking at it and thinking just how it's too pretty to use... yet!! Then new papers came and it slowly got lost in the shuffle.

Here is the resulting layout of Paige and her sweet smile.

Challenge: I would like you to find some papers you have laying around that is at least a year old. If you have paper that's at least 2 years old you will receive 2 ballots. For paper that's at least 3 years old... you will receive 3 ballots!! Fun eh??

Email it to me at and put thynner blog in the subject line. Please indicate in the email what papers you used so I can make sure you get the right amount of ballots for the amazing blog draw!

Due Date: March 31st
Draw Date: April 1st

Happy Scrapping!



  1. I love your stash Tara! Great LO from it. I think your stash looks a way lot better than mine. Im really having a hard time using most of it. Mostly, it cames from gifts and not a personal choice.

    Love this challenge tho. Might try to join this.


  2. I got those papers too Tara...they are adorable...your layout turned out fantastic. I loved using mine. Great challenge. I am sure I have a tone of papers I bought that I haven't used.

  3. Oh now this is right up my alley!! Seriously, using my stash was one of my New Years Resolutions! ;)


    here is one from my stash. this is the last lone piece of this paper that I have. I just loved it and tried to make it stretch as far as I could. I have no idea when it was made, several years ago...SR Metropolis: PearlStreet
