August Use It or Lose It

Good morning everyone and welcome to my monthly challenge “Use or Lose It!”. I did REALLY good using up my stash last month. I used the following from my original July Use it or Lose It Challenge:

  • Studio Calico “Hey Day” collection pack
  • Beach stickers. I used ALL of them!!!
  • Bo Bunny Jewels in Blue. I used the pearls mostly
  • Everyday sentiment clear stamps
  • Bo Bunny “Timepiece” stickers
  • Basic Grey “Vivienne” 6×6 paper pad.
  • Lily Davis watercolor blue chipboard alphas
  • Clear, very old, bubble stickers talking about “memories”
  • Heidi Grace chipboard
  • Prima teal flower

I had only ONE item that will get a second chance this month:

  • Art-C green micro beads

I even used these items from June’s second chance:

  • Fine glitter
  • Bo Bunny “Key Lime” charms
  • Scrapbooker’s Painted Page paper

One thing I didn’t use was Inkadinkado’s Stamping Gear. I just never was feeling it. I even grabbed it a few times and practiced with it. Not for me, so in the bin it goes!

Now onto my items that I pulled for August.

An K & Company Family Tree scrapbooking kit. I don’t even recall ever buying it. But I’m an avid family researcher, so maybe I can do at least one layout?

Spackling Paste. Before buying texture paste and modeling paste and mixed media products, my husband bought spackling paste from Home Depot. I just wanted it for the texture. Now that I have the mixed media products, this just sits there. On the shelf. Would love to use it at least once this month!

Ribbon. Both of them have less than 12 inches. It’d be good to use them up
Bling. From Prima. They are very pretty. Un-opened too.
Chalboard flags from AC. Un-opened.

Lily Davis chipboard alphas. This time…in GREEN.
A sticker sheet about friends and gardens. LOL. OKay…

The Paper Studio Christmas Pack. Yes, Christmas in August. Thinking about getting started on some Christmas cards.

Bo Bunny “Mammarazzi” collection. I have 3 full sheets left, some scraps and half a sticker sheet. It’d be fun to use this up!

Doggie Stamps. Micro size. I forget about these, since they fit in my stash.
Basic Grey “Highline” chipboard. I bought the entire collection when it came out and I’ve been using it to scrap photos of a photo shoot my scrappy friends did about 5 yrs ago. I have quite a bit of it left, but these 2 chipboard project life style cards are still there. I keep passing them up. Might as well try to use them.

Wish me luck and I’ll be back here periodically this month when I use something up!
