**Two winners for this round---Robkaynel and Senoritascrapper. Congrats!!

For the month of December, these will be the only prompts. I will pick 2 winners and new prompts will appear on December 31st.

Everyone is welcome to play! Pick a prompt and jump right in!

The more you play, the more chances you have to win a small scrapping goody from me (and some others who are donating prizes!!) and the more pages you will get done!

Please link up your creation in this thread for a chance to win and I will also have a challenge box you can check during the upload process.
Look for **Stash Busters Challenge**

You can submit more than one page/project for each challenge so feel free to make use of your inspiration.

**You can combine all these prompts. Each prompt you use is good for one chance to win...so use 3 prompts on one layout = 3 chances to win!***

We all like to get comments on our pages so if you are playing along please try to find the time to return the favor!

Deadline for these challenges are MONDAY December 30st by 11:59 pm PST

Great prompts Marianne. I'm thinking that food related and make something for the holidays will be put to good use during this busy month of December. Thanks for the inspiration.

Marianne ,
I love the prompts and since my intention is to bake a lot this will add fuel to my fire.
I am sure I can whip up some holiday creations too !
What a great idea to gave these prompts for a full month. It's a busy time for everyone but these are helpful motivators to get it done .


Christine,

I haven't been around for awhile...sorry I run a clothing store and November is busy.

Yesterday I made a page for In the Mood (Promt 5)

My page

I also finished a December Birthday gift: a Mini book using Wilna's tutorial from her blog (Sorta prompt #1)

Hi everyone,
Sorry I've been AWOL, I haven't crafted at all since mid-October (which considering I scrapped for 5/6 days a week for 9 months is a big deal) but I promise I have a good excuse.... I'm having a baby in May!

From 7 weeks till 12 I felt awful all day (totally different to last time where I felt fine) and I felt worse as the day wore on, so afternoon scrapping was cancelled in favour of naps, hehe. Anyway now I feel great and have top he urge to get back in my scrap room, so your great prompts Marianne will help for sure!

Hi, ladies! Well, I'm happy to say that I'm finished writing my class' reports for the term so I can get back to prepping for the holidays and doing a little crafting.

Anyway, I managed to get all my Christmas cards done.

Welcome Kim! Looks like a few of the Stash Busters already know you!

Congrats, Jess!

I have been busy with all kinds of different things so I haven't been scrapping very much. I do have a layout almost complete that hopefully I will finish and upload tomorrow.

Going to go catch up on my praise from the last challenge and this one!

Congrats Jess! So happy for you!

My Christmas tree has kicked me out of my scrappy space (a corner of the living room)so if I want to scrap, I've got to pick a few things and set up at the dining table. Boooooo!

It sure does look prettier than my creative mess usually does though!

Marianne, so sorry that you have lost your scrappy space. I'm afraid I'd never decorate if it meant losing my scrap space. You are such a martyr for the cause!

This may be the only thing I get done. I'm working on Christmas cards but have been under the weather for a couple of weeks, so not much happening.

Congratulations, Jess!
My pregnancy with my daughter was the same way! For the first trimester I was so sick I could hardly get off the couch. And then almost immediately when I hit 12 weeks I felt better.

Here is my layout for Prompt 2 and Prompt 5 (Glitter Girl's journal challenge)

Hi everyone,

Famous last words saying I'd get back to scrapping, our whole house has been struck by a vomiting/sickness bought this past ten days, luckily, we're on the mend, I'm sick of being ill!

I've just seen all your awesome entries so far and I'm so motivated, and it reminds me how much I've missed chatting with people who "get" pretty paper. I can't wait to get cutting and pasting ASAP!

Hi, everyone!

Jess - Gah, that stomach bug goes around here in Sweden every winter, too. The Swedes call it vinterkrakssjukdom (literally, "winter puke disease". I had it several years ago. Thought I was dying. Then wished I was. Hope you all get over it quickly.

Here's a little something I made for a friend at work for a Secret Santa we held - it's an advent mini tag album. Fits prompts #1, 2 & 4.

Boy, you can tell everyone is busy getting ready for the holidays! Our thread has been really slow. I STILL have the layout sitting on my dining room table (oops, I mean in my "studio"! Lol!) that is yet to be completed. HOPEFULLY, tomorrow! Yeah, I know, I think I said that last week. It was supposed to fit the "shelf" prompt from our last go-round but I didn't get it done in time. Thankfully, it fits Glitter Girl's Twine challenge. That may be my last one for a little while but we'll see. I might use my down time to catch up on some videos and also a couple of workshops I purchased but haven't even looked at or finished!!! Believe it or not I have yet to finish Shimelle's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking"! How embarrassing is that?! After the holidays my DD's 15th b-day is January 7 and then a surprise 50th b-day party for my cousin on the 11th. I am also going away for a 4-day scrapping weekend January 16 - 19 so I need to get photos printed and my kits together.

So I just wanted you all to know that I hadn't jumped ship! I
belonging to this group of scrappers!

Hope everyone is enjoying getting ready for the holidays!

Ok, this is really stretching it, and I don't expect to be entered into the drawing for this, but I "crafted" these dried orange slices for my tree. Just cut them into 1/4" silces, season with cinnamon and nutmeg, and bake at a very low temp for 4 hours.

Orange Slice!

Hi, ladies!

I have one final project for the year to share today. Fits prompt #4 (use patterned paper for background - unless I've misunderstood):

Lucia Birthday Card

That's it for me until 2014. Tomorrow I'm flying back to Canada to spend the holidays with friends and family there and will have virtually no Internet access so I'll see you all in the New Year. Best wishes to you all and have a safe and joyful season!

Hi!

I have gotten back to scrapping lately and having so much product I thought this would be a great challenge for me...I did some projects I would like to share:

Happy Little Moment gold stamping, silver sequins

You & Me and Coffee gold stamping, gold doily, sort of about food (coffee is food, right?!) also used lots of old goodies on this (Studio Calico Darling Dear and Sassafras Lass stickers!)

Blowing Wishes Kraft background, gold washi and gold mist!

Thanks for hosting the challenge I feel great gettingthings scrapped

Jess, hope everyone is feeling better at your home.

Bevvie, I love your orange slices. I want to try that with my grands next year.

I haven't been able to scrap, but love checking in to see what you all have posted. Hopefully near the end of the month I can get myself in gear.

Marianne, sending sympathy vibes for the loss of your scrap area!!

Good for you, Bevvie, for completing a LO during this busy time. I thought I'd get one done today, but it's still laying on my desk awaiting me. My new goal is to do at least one before 2014. I like Nylene's idea of not doing what's on the list and instead getting recharged scrapping!

Happy Holidays to you all.

I saw one of Nylene's layouts for the challenge in the gallery and thought I'd like to play along, if that's okay.

I've got a few things for the challenge that I've created this month:
2013 Christmas cards (For Prompt 1).

Visiting Santa (If I understand correctly this works for Prompt 1 and 4)

@Knit Studio (PP challenge, prompt 4)

Sprinkles

This is from our trip to NYC. We always try a new cupcake place to see if they can beat Philly's “Sweet Elizabeth's”. This place came close but “SE's” still prevails!

Look, ladies! A page that ISN'T from my cruise!

This is for the following:

Scrap Your Stash: Holiday/Non-holiday
Seeing Double: Christmas
Stash Busters: Food
Silver and Gold

I finally got to use my sequins! The “S” is from Cricut's “Opposites Attract” but the rest of the word is “Cursive 101”. LOVE welding the letters with Cricut Craft Room!

TFL, and Merry, Happy Christmas!
