Use your Stuff (UYS) Monday!!!

Happy Monday everyone.. Today a few friends and I are starting a bi-weekly challenge for ourselves to use the supplies we have in our stash. With this industry there is so much new stuff coming out on a Monthly basis and we want it all but the reality is we will never use it. So, every other week we are digging into our stash and challenging ourselves to use what we had too have but never used!

Be sure to head over to Rita's Blog and Lisa's Blogs and see what they created this week.. We decided to start with Lawn Fawn this week.. There's a fun challenge called Lawnscaping that's for Lawn Fawn products and we always want to participate but often never get around to it and miss the deadline.

So, if you have some Lawn Fawn stuff in your Stash that hasn't seen daylight since you brought it home.. Break it out and let's get inky! Add a bit of dimension to you project as well then head over to the Lawnscaping challenge and link up for this week's challenge it ends on Wednesday.

I'm using the Lawn Fawn set Let's Roll.. This is actually the very first set I purchased from Lawn Fawn and it's so sad that it's been over a year and it's not come out of it's package. 

I stamped the images onto some PTI white card stock and then I colored them in with my Copics and fussy cut them out and set them aside. Then I die cut a circle from the MFT Stitched Circle Stax and sponged some of the pale Blue Mama Elephant pigment ink inside to created a light background! 

Then I created a white card base and stamped the sentiment from the same set and I created the layout based on this week's sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, using some Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Pattern Paper. More stuff I neglect. I added 2 hearts from the My Mind's Eye Jubilee Enamel Shapes set. I think these were in a SSS card kit in Nov maybe? See I need to use my stuff! 

I adhered the circle with some dimensionals and then I added my images, popping some up with dimensioanls. After everything was assembled I added some Clear Wink of Stella (click to enlarge above Photo). We know I love that Wink of Stella Pen.. Ha Ha I'm also entering this in to the challenge at MarkerPop this week it's anything goes. 

If you want to share the project you create with a Lawn Fawn product forgotten in your stash you can use the Linky Below. We'd love to see what you create!
