Challange #166 - Anything Goes

Hello one and all, Tammy here with this week's challenge.  Actually, this is going to be our last post for the year!  The DT are going to take some time off to be with their families over the holidays and we will resume back up on January 5th!  Stay tuned in the new year for some new challenges and a DT call! (Get your projects ready:) )

In the meantime for the next month we are going to be having an ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!  You can enter any project you wish for this challenge, but we are going to limit it to 4 entries.  At the end of the month we are going to have a random draw and the winner will receive a surprise gift! (International entries welcome)

We at the Use Your Stuff DT want to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and all the best for the new year.

Michelle Looi - These on the way to recipients now!


For this challenge, I decided to use as much of my stash as I could and make some gift tags for wrapping presents.  I am very pleased with how they turned out!

Tammy- Here's a fun card I made just using up some of my scraps.  I think he's adorable. 


I finally finished up all of my Christmas cards - this is one of my favorites. Super simple and used up some scraps!

Challange #165 - Red and Green

Amanda here with this week's challenge. With Christmas and the holiday season fast approaching I thought it fitting that we do a Red and Green challenge! It can help put us in the holiday spirit and maybe motivate you to get some cards completed if you do them! I'm sharing a card and a layout!

Here's my card for Christmas, in different range of greens and reds. These are washi tapes from MT and word stickers from October Afternoon


I have been practicing coloring green combos.  This is a card that I made using one of my new combos.

And from our guest designer Marion

Show us your red and green!

Highlights Challenge #163 - Color Pallet

Happy Monday everyone!  Due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States
,we had a very quiet week last week on the blog,
so rather than picking a winner from the three entries,
 all three are the winners this week!!

Please grab your blinki on the side bar and we hope to see you again soon 
here at Use Your Stuff.  Make sure to look at this weeks challenge, Cheverons!!

Challenge #164 - Chevrons


I'm on a mission to make a bunch more Christmas cards and washi is a quick way to get them done! I used three different chevron washi tapes here!


I am always trying to use the many die cut files I purchase for my die cut machine.  For this card, I used a chevron border as the base for my card.

Our Guest DT Marion has created this stunning card using Chevrons for this challenge.  Don't forget to stop by her blog to see more of her work.

Show us what you have created with chevrons this week!

Highlights Challenge #162

Such wonderful projects for the Stamping challenge last week. I loved the wide variety of projects posted.  It was hard to pick this week's highlights but I hope you like what we have for you.


Love this Christmas card!  What great coloring, especially the fur.


I liked this layout for the fantastic use of stamping on a layout.  What a great variety of stamps used.

I really liked the thinking outside of the box on this spread.  So many details, and great use of the stamps.
Thanks for playing along everyone.  Please grab your badge from the side bar.  Join us tomorrow for another fun challenge!

I've been making birthday cards for our clients at Meals on Wheels,
and we have had alot of birthdays as of late,  Typically I post scrapbook layouts,
