So with the new year and working hard towards our goal of getting out of debt, I am on a scrapbooking supplies "diet". This really had me quite bummed out and depressed because a new Idea Book just debuted. *SIGH* BUT...then I took a good look around at my messy scraproom and realized just how many supplies I already have. Not to mention, tools, gadgets, embellishments, etc. I joined Close to My Heart in March of 2006, and am amazed at just how many supplies I have "collected" rather than used. LOL Soooo I decided to challenge myself and see who else I could get to join me. The first paper pack I received in my kit when I joined was Discovery. This is a lovely kit, but not my favorite. It has been a real challenge to work with for me. So I sat down to see what I could do with it. I had about 1/3 of a paper pack and four sheets of half used My Stickease left. I still managed to create 3 complete 2 page layouts and 3 cards with what was left.
So here's the challenge: If you are a CTMH consultant (or avid shopper of CTMH), find a paper pack from the Spring 2006 Idea Book and see what you can make. Layouts, cards, mini-albums, altered items, etc. The goal is to have the entire pack used up...no more hoarding!!! and to get pictures AND journaling on the layouts/mini-albums.
If you do not have anything CTMH, choose a paper pack or papers from your stash - who cares what company. Something you bought meaning to use but have let gather dust - and USE IT UP! I will take note of everyone who participates, and at the end of the month randomly draw a name for a small prize. Please post a link to your artwork in the comments section. Here are my contributions so far for the month. Happy Scrapping Y'all!!!
