STASHBUSTERS Challenge- (July 1st-13th) Everyone is welcome

Postby scrapnatya » Jul 1st, '14, 9:44 am

Welcome to the Stashbusters challenge thread! This is the first challenge in our new Cocoa Daisy home and I hope you find some time to play along!
Everyone is welcome to play. Pick a prompt and jump right in!

Prompts are open for two weeks.

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.

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 JULY 13th @ 11:59 pm PST

**********************************************************************


PROMPT #1

In honor of America's birthday, make a project that features either stars (at least 3) and/or stripes (patterned paper/stamps/ strips of paper etc)


Page by Nancy Damiano

Page by Jamie Harder

Page by Nicole Nowosad

Page by antenucci (two peas name)

Page by Melinda Spinks

Image

PROMPT #2
Create a page or project that's all about you!


This would be the perfect time to document where you go on the internet daily (take a screen shot of Two Peas while you still can!) or a list of what a typical day in your life is like. Maybe you want to use this prompt to document any hopes and dream you have for the future or how much you love the read or as a place to write down your bucket list. If it is unique to you, it counts here!

Prompt #3
Use some kind of stitching on your project

It can be machine sewing or hand stitching or rub-ons or stamps that look like sewing or pen work.
The CD kit for July has a stitching template so there are lots of pretty things in the gallery!

Any chance we can get an extension on the challenges? All the prompts were so great and inspiring but I was creatively dead in the water until I found everyone. Now I'm motivated again!

Just realized I posted to the new thread. Oh well, these prompts are great and I'm still going to work on the last set of prompts as well.

I just purchased my first kit here. I learned my lesson..support your boards. I like the idea that I can buy one without a sub.

Clearly, I have featured that sketch before and forgot!!
Here's Goobernut's (Christine) page . I pinned it because it will soon disappear!

Also, thanks for supporting CD by buying a kit!! :)

@ColoradoCropper----the next set of challenges will have a pot luck prompt to catch up on some older challenges. I'm saving a bunch of them on my blog!

Oh no Marianne,

:-[ :-[

I didn't mean that I got the the sketch from Stashbusters. Your prompts are original and you didn't repeat this sketch. I just wanted to chime in and say "yeah, I love that sketch and used it." I got it from pinterest.

Thanks for adding my layout here.

Thanks, Marianne! I loved your last set of challenges. I wish I could have done a chalkboard product layout or more rainbow layouts. The rainbow layouts were so fun and I would never have thought to do them without your prompt!! I'm glad you'll be hosting a "potluck" challenge later. Sounds like fun and I may do some more rainbow inspired layouts.

I am loving the new challenge prompts! I'm going to see if I do a stitching layout and a CD design team member inspired layout. I feel like those are calling my name. :)

By the way, @goobernut - love your take on the layout!! So pretty. I've also done that particular sketch prompt. I love Susan Stringfellow so I may have just used her sketch. I used it for my Superman layout. I just love Clark Kent/Superman and Henry Cavill is so nice to look at. lol

I'm linking it up just so our members can see it, not for this challenge. Thanks!

Thank you for the new set of prompts, Marianne. Inspiring as always. I love that you will have a potluck prompt to catch up on old prompts we wished we had done but never got around to. This might not be a bad idea for each round because you sure have come up with some great ones in the past. Thank you!

It's funny that you included that layout that Nancy Damiano did because I just pinned it from her blog a few days ago. It is so beautiful!

I love the look of CD's forum on my iPad. It is so homey and easy on the eyes. Very inviting! Thank you for allowing us to continue these great challenges here.

Got my first layout done for this challenge! Hooray!

This is for prompt #3 and #4. I am starting to get to the end of my disneyland photos but also starting to run out of steam, so I am grateful for these challenges to give me a little boost!

I bought some letterpress cards, stamps, and masks. So many fun goodies! Bummed their little Bucket List stamp set was sold out though. :(

Can't wait to get my happy mail. I'll have to wait to see what fun challenges you have in store then!

Trying to figure out this new system for posting to the gallery. Hope it works!

Remember those old DCWV border paper pad strips for ages ago? I was able to use those for this layout.
For the rainbow challenge:
