Good morning crafty friends,
It is another WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY here at CWC! I hope you’re ready for this challenge…this week’s theme is:
CASH IN YOUR STASH
In honor of our upcoming “tax” day…We would like to challenge you to use the STUFF IN YOUR STASH… Things that have been around for AT LEAST A YEAR! You can also use the theme of “CASH” or “MONEY, MOOLAH, COIN…BANK”… you get the idea
Okay…ALL of you KNOW you have stuff sitting around that you OOOH’D and AAAAH’D over when you bought it and then now…..there it sits! We are calling all Paper Hoarders and “PRETTY THINGS STASHERS!” Now is your chance to use it!
So without further adieu, here is what our wonderful Design Team Chefs created for your viewing pleasure and inspiration!
Check out how Jen used recycled Wedding and Baby Shower “stuff” for this pretty “stash”! Be sure to read our resident poets beautiful poem too!
Be sure to head over to Christel’s Blog for details on her “STICKER STASH USE!”
Head over to Anita’s Blog so she can show you how she saved some cash by using her sweet Paper Stash!

Okay here are a few details on my layout:
This is a pic of all the stuff in my stash that I used that I have had for over a year…some WAY OVER…lol! BTW…the Sizzix die that is still in the package…I bought it on clearance for a couple bucks a few years back and OPENED IT FOR THIS PROJECT….HOW SAD…lol!
I used some Basic Grey – Stella Ruby patterned paper. This collection came out roughly almost 4 years ago!!!
I used my Quickutz Damask border die that is over two years old
My two Sizzix Dies that is at LEAST a couple of years old.
My 50 States Cricut Cartridge that is about three years old
My Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge that I have had for just about a year.
My TH Paper Distresser. That tool is almost 3 years old.
My EK Butterfly punch that is a couple of years old and….
My MS Butterfly punch that is almost two years old.
I used “Old Paper” Distress Stickles on my butterfly. I have also had that for over a year!
SO THIS WAS PRETTY MUCH FROM MY STASH!
This project also fit nicely into a couple of other challenges over at simply scrapping a community of crafters that I recently came across. It fit into their Sketch challenge: HERE and their Cricut challenge: HERE. Be sure to head over and sign up…Be sure to tell them Melin sent you too!
Now it’s your turn!!! Get that hidden cash in your stash out and do something with it! Here are just a few small guidelines:
* Must use your Cricut or some type of die cut on your project.
* Must use something that has been in your “Stash” for AT LEAST a YEAR.
* Your Project must be a new project for this challenge and your post MUST have a link back to CWC.
* Your entry needs to be a direct link to your project and not just your blog.
Thank you so much for playing along with us! We can’t wait to see how you use the “Cash In Your Stash”!
Have a wonderfully crafty day!
