Challenge #10: Stashbusting

Sunday 3 August 2014

Hello and welcome back to the UK Scrappers 2014 Summer Scrapbooking Challenge. This is our final challenge :( and is therefore the finale! This challenge is about stashbusting. We've all got loads of stash, and even if you are the most frugal scrapper I'm sure there are things in your stash that you wish you could just get used up. However stash busting can get overwhelming if you are faced with every sheet of paper in your craft room. So today's challenge is to pick out a set of supplies (fairly large) and then make three layouts from that AND ONLY THAT - no adding! This means you have to use what you've picked out, so try to include things you'd like to see used, and then when the urge comes to rummage around looking for extra things - resist it and stick only to the supplies you've already pulled out. Because the supplies are limited, it makes it quite easy to throw together three layouts in a short amount of time.

Your supply list is as follows:
three x 12x12 sheets for your backgrounds (3 layouts total)
up to 5 other full sheets that you can cut up and use for layers
a load of scraps
I also had two cut apart sheets to cut emblems/motifs from to use as embellishments.

large shapes/die cuts/PL cards
Some medium sized shapes/die cuts
Small embellishments such as enamel dots, wood veneer shapes, brads etc
up to 4xwashi tapes and finally:
alpha stickers, big and small.

I very roughly drew out three sketches for me to follow and since filming the video I have digitised them and they are below if you would also like to use them. It's not a requirement of the challenge to follow these sketches, but they are here for your use if you would like them.

Fay has also taken on this challenge and come up with these three layouts:

Please share your layouts on Instagram using the hashtag #uks2014summerscrapbookingchallenge and also in the UKS dedicated Gallery.

So that concludes the UKScrappers 2014 Summer Scrapbooking Challenge. I hope you've enjoyed all the challenges and that you find something that will give you a bit of inspiration to keep you scrapping this summer. If you are a points-collector on UK Scrappers then you have until midnight on 30th September to upload your layouts to the gallery and collect the bonus points for your team. If you aren't a points-collector then please join in for your own enjoyment and we'd still love to see your layouts in the gallery.

Happy scrapping xx
