UPDATE!!! The winner of this week's prize (MME enamel dots) is..........

sassiescrapper!! CONGRATS!!

(picked by random number generator)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome scrappers and Happy New Year! I've decided to host a weekly challenge thread here at Two Peas. The more you play, the more chances you have to win a small scrapping goody from me 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**

Deadline for these 5 prompts is Sunday January 6, 2013

Have fun!

**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!***

Prompt Number One

Use a border punch on your page. You know you have one!


Prompt Number Two

Use something glittery. Do you have any pretty paper with glitter accents on it? Use it for a page or a card. How about loose glitter or Stickles? Bust them out and glitter up a chipboard letter or a flower.


Prompt Number 3

Inspiration Layout. I love THIS layout by fellow pea Valerie Bishop. Find something to copy on this page. Maybe you like her stitching around the outer edge, maybe it's the overall design, maybe it's the doily. Find one thing or many and use it on a page.

Prompt Number 4

Use a sketch.

I found these 2 sketches on Susan Stringfellow's blog Sketch Savvy.

I picked this one for a one pager

Sketch 97
and this one for a double page spread

Sketch #17

Prompt Number 5

Complete any of the challenges hosted by Two Peas. There are so many new ones! I will add links as they become available. Some of these challenges may have different due dates so keep that in mind.

This is PERFECT for me!! I have a huge stash, and I am always "afraid" to use up stuff. Since I am not afraid to buy more, it keeps accumulating. I am not a purger, so Stash Busting Challenges are just the motivation to USE what I have. I'm in!

Looking forward to this one. Didn't realize there was a deadline prior to my coming home for the Week 1 challenges. Hopefully, as I will be coming home tomorrow, I will be able to do some of these.

Great list, not sure if I will get to play every week but I look forward to playing along at some point!

So funny to see the inspiration layout you posted. I was just shopping in a scrapbook store Saturday and that layout was displayed. Small world, didn't know a pea lived in that area.

I also just completed the "In the Mood" Challenge from prompt #5. I also use d my OLW for 2013:CREATE. I didn't use alot of product from my stash...because it was so simple. I made two mini art journal pages and then I used my star die which I had never used(Great Stash Busting)! I don't have a Silhoutte so I had to had cut my title...it turned out good...and it made me CREATE which is my word!

In the Mood Challenge 1.3.13

Marianne...love your page..and especially your word!

I am challenging myself to use only my stash for 200 pages... (glue and photos are allowed). Here are pages no 59 and 60, both for prompt no 5.

Expect the best {in the mood}

The end {scrap your stash}

Yay! Just had time today to make a page. The pic isn't great, but I can't figure out a way to get a good picture in the winter.

This is for prompt 1 and 5. Of course I had to use Scrap Your Stash in the stash busters challenge!

Scrappy Cat

Now off to see what kind of ideas I can get from everyone's work.

Marianne - I finished a layout tonight and was just wondering if the pics for this challenge have to be posted tonight or do we have time to post them tomorrow morning? I get confused by the challenge due date when there isn't a time.

I can post not-so-fab pics tonight or better pics tomorrow. Let me know. Thanks!

Yay, I got one page and a card done! Didn't bust much of my stash, just a couple pieces of old (like five years old) PP, but I did use my punches and some stamps! I made it for the Seeing Double challenge, so it works for #5 here.

Layout and Card

Now I'm off to check everyone else's work! ScrapNAtya, thanks for hosting another great challenge for us, you are a SuperPea!

I am scrapping December after taking that entire month off to deal with the holidays. This is my first layout since taking my little break. I was inspired by challenges 1, 2 and 3. (the stitching, although I faked mine) I used a sketch too, but it has completely departed from what the sketch looked like.
