I always love playing along with the challenges at Scrap Our Stash, so it has been such an honor to serve as their August Guest Designer. The second challenge of the month is to use the below sketch and 75% of the product used must be from some of your oldest stash...the older the better.
And here is my take on it...
I really enjoyed working with this sketch! It's different from anything I usually do, but I like to stretch my creativity in order to grow my style. I also love using up older product. I find that it's easy to get caught up in purchasing the latest & greatest before I've even gone through what I already have. The patterned papers are from the Sassafras Lass "Whale of a Tale" line, which I think is about 5 years old, and the background paper is My Mind's Eye Meadowlark. I also used some blue alpha stickers from Bo Bunny that must be over 6 years old because I remember buying them before Santiago was born. This sketch and challenge were the perfect way to make my older product look totally current!
Now I hope you will dig into your oldest stash and use this sketch to create your own page! You have until August 29th to link it up at Scrap Our Stash for a chance to win a prize from Nani ke Ola.
