Challenge #741 - Pour Some Sugar on Me

 How is it already the final day of January?! The month seems to have flown by. It's my first time to host in 2024 though and this year, I'm using Def Leppard songs to inspire my challenges. This time, it's "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and I'm looking for anything that's sweet - from candy treats to darling images to something really little. Anything that would make you think, "That's sweet!"

I decided to go the literal route with my little candy pouches to be filled with some sweet Valentine treats a bit closer to the special day.

How will you interpret the challenge? If you need some more inspiration, please see the Girlfriends' (DT) projects below. When you're ready, link up and I'll come and visit your blog to see what you've created!

Featured Picks #740

Wow, you all showed off all that wonder stuff you have been saving or have recently gotten!  I was so impressed with all the wonderful creations this week.  I'm afraid there was a little too much temptation there for me and a couple of things that have gone on my "gotta have it" list.

Here are a few of my favorites, I could have picked way more than 4, but restrained my self to these beauties -

Thanks to everyone for sharing their beautiful creations.  Lynda, Leslie, Michelle and Darnell, please feel free to wave the Featured badge on your blog.  We hope you come back and join our new challenge that will be up real soon!

Challenge #740 - NBUS ("Never Been Used Schtuff")

My inspiration for this weeks challenge came from working to destash my craft room.  So, is there a better way to go than challenging you to use your Never Before Used Schtuff?  NBUS is an acronym coined by the wonderful Darnell over at NBUS Challenge.  This is pretty much an anything goes challenge, as long as you use stuff from your stash you have never used before like stamps, stencils, inks, dies.  Please let me know what you have used from your stash in your post.

As for my tiny cards, I've used a stamp set from Stamping Bella and some diamond painting beads I got last year from Amazon.  I can't believe these stamps have never seen ink before,  I've had them so long, they don't seem to be available any more.  

We would love to have you join us at Little Red Wagon this week!  Check out the Girlfriends blogs to see what beautiful things they have created with their stash stuff.  I certainly look forward to seeing what you have that you are using for the very first time.

Challenge # 739 - Sentimental You!

Happy Wednesday, all.  This week the challenge is "Sentimental You!" which means we want to see projects with a sentiment as the focus or a large sentiment. 

And remember, we're not just about cards!  We'd love to see your scrapbook layout, bookmark, tag, pocket page, altered item....any papercraft goes!

This is what I did....

As you can see, I've let the sentiment be the star on this card.

If you would like more inspiration, do check out what fantastic creations the Girlfriends made.

Can't wait to see what you create!
