A to Z Scrapbooking.....

Theresa and Lea were trying to think up new challenges to use up all their stash,there were lots of ideas been thrown around but eventually they came up with this one, the A to Z Challenge. On the 15th of every month over at Scrapbookers Anonymous we will be asking you to use up some of your stash using items from a manufacturer that begins with the letter for that month.
So obviously, we are kicking off this month with the letter A,you haven't got to use everything beginning with A,unless you want to of course, it could be the paper,embellishments or even the alpha's. Easy peasy,let's see what you come up with,I've gone for the obvious this month and gone with American Crafts papers and embellies,the alpha's are Adornit.







My good friend Libby gave me some American Crafts goodies that she didn't want anymore so I used them,the base is double-sided 12x12 AC Classics paper,it is patterned one side and a solid colour on the reverse, I misted it with some TA. The strips of pattern paper and Smile paper are AC Just Write journaling cards,there's a journaling card and a pattern paper on each 4x6 strip which is perforated so you can just tear them apart. I used four different patterns and then Smile which I used as part of a quote 'A smile should be shared with everyone'. The chipboard bunting and birds are also AC.
I hope you can join in with this fun challenge,it doesn't have to be a LO, you could make a card and it's a great way to use up some older stash and make room for all the new. I wonder how many different manufacturers beginning with A we get and don't forget the current challenge that's still running,using up your journaling cards. You have until the end of August to enter both challenges,the more times you enter the more chances you have of winning this month's fab prize of a $25 gift certificate to spend at Two Peas in a Bucket, which our very own Lynnda has donated.
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your LO's and cards using the letter A.
