#466 Food and Drink Highlights

 Thank you for sharing your tasty creations with us at Use Your Stuff.  

Here are a few of the design team favorites

Helen - I've chosen #19 from Epie.  I love the card shape and the colours used

Deanne- I love this card (#23 Trijntjes)!!! It looks so yummy!

Haven-  I love all of the fruity ATCs by Leslie but was drawn to the bright yellow of the lemon card the most.

UYS #467 Woodgrain / Double Trouble Collaboration

 Hey everyone!  We are really excited to be partnering with Double Trouble Challenges for this week's challenge.

Our portion of the collaboration is to use wood or woodgrain on your project.  This could be a wood piece, the paper you choose, some embossing etc.  Add a die cut or punch and you've got everything you need to play along with the Double Trouble challenge too!

 Once you add your project to our challenge, head on over to their blog and play along with theirs as well.  

Check it out!

The design team has some great projects to get you started ! 



My "wood grain" choice is the blue and white card anchoring my title and die cuts
I like to keep track of some of my favorite shows of the year and this is my current compilation.
I used two Elle's Studio Pocket Cards & three Elle's Studio die cuts along w/ three stickers and a Kelly Purkey stamp to embellishment my simple 6x8 pocket page

 Have fun with the challenge! We can't wait to see what you create!

#466 Food/Drink


Hello all!  It's September if you can believe it!  Fall is just around the corner, can you smell it in the air yet?  Give it time!

Our new challenge is here for you! 

Food and/or Drink

Lots you can do with this one, so we can't wait to see what you have to show us!

Let's see what the Design Team has for you this challenge!


Food is almost always included in my Project Life Layouts
During Week 25 I tried the new flavor of Lenny and Larry's Protein Cookie: 
Strawberry Shortcake

I tried out the new Starbucks beverage
Their first ever Vegan Fall Drink -
Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato
12x12 Traditional Layout

I have been digging through some of the photos my mom has sent my way and found this gem of a photo that's perfect for the challenge.  I think it's the summer of 1980 but not sure other than that we were in Michigan and features my brother and I enjoying sodas together.

One of my family's favorite Fall festivals in our area is the annual Greek Festival held the second week of September.  Featured in this project is my daughter and husband dining away on all sorts of Greek goodies!

Hey there everyone!  Our next challenge is all about Rainbows...  You can use rainbow colors on your project or actual rainbows...whatever your choice may be.  We would love to see what you have been working on!

Initially I wasn't really sure I had much in the way of rainbows in my stash but was pleasantly surprised once I started digging and I am loving how bright and happy this layout feels!
