UYS # 288 - 5 + patterned papers



hello all!  
 Karrie  challenging you to use up your stuff!!  Yeah that's what we' re always all about here, so this time dig into your patterned papers because we want to see you use 5 or more on your project!
I've got 7 going on here, it's easy when you use the same colour scheme.


My talented team mates have been digging into their stash too!

Simple masculine birthday card.


My daughter loves every holiday from October to December, so she decided to decorate using everything from snowmen to skeletons.  She looked at me and said, "Happy Hallowthanksmas, Mom!"  I used 10 pieces of Halloween, fall, and Christmas paper to pull this project together.



Well, I'm not into patterned paper too much, I rather color my own, but I found some very old paper from Teresa Collins in my stash.

I used it for my Christmas Tag, also using the Paper Dolls from Tim Holtz and a sentiment from Waltzing Mouse stamps (Unfortunately retired 😞)


Amanda
On this one I used some old patterned paper I have been hoarding! The 5th one is hard to tell but the black paper the photo is mounted on has some pre-printed embossing on it.



Chris
I used lots of older stash for my circles, matting and even the tag was fussy cut from a piece of patterned paper.


Tina
5 pattern papers for the layout some old stash and some newer stash too




Lots of different things can be done to mix and match patterned papers as you can see, any kind of project accepted, so go ahead and show us!  Inlinkz below:

Challenge #287- Take 5

Hey there UYS peeps,

The challenge this week is to take 5 things from your stash, that potentially has been lost among the collections and use them to create something. 

For me I have created a pocket page spread using some items that I really don't use or in some cases haven't used at all.

I will have a process video for you up on my YouTube channel (Scrappin Ames) later in the week.

Thank you for playing along with us here at UYS.






Amanda

The 5 stash items I chose were the stamp, markers, scallop edge scissors, 
sequins and the patterned papers.



For mine, I used some old DP that I have had for about 4 years now called Snow Day by Crate Paper, I also used Merry Christmas stickers, enamel dots and pearls, as well as a cartridge in my Cricut Design Space that I haven't used in awhile.



Heather R

I didn't really have any trouble finding things that have been sitting around for awhile...my picture itself is 3 years old!  LOL!  I used an old pad of patterned papers, alpha stickers, journaling tags, stickers, and even a couple of buttons.



I have used an old 6x6 paper pad, metal stockings from 2003 or 2004, a stamp that I haven't used in a couple of years, a circle punch - I use my dies more than my punches, and an edge distresser.
