EARTH DAY SCRAP/PAPERCRAFT CHALLENGE

cimg8030

In honor of Earth Day (April 22), I am running a stash-only challenge:

From April 22 until May 22nd, use only your stash. While I have no desire to negatively impact suppliers, try to limit your purchases of new scrapbooking materials during this month, instead focusing on REDUCING (consumption & waste), REUSING (unconventional materials), and RECYCLING.  Personally, I have pledged not to buy ANY new materials during the month-long period, and am looking forward to finding creative ways to use all those odds and ends.

Melanie has accepted this challenge.  How about you?  Leave a comment if you are game.  And feel free to steal the button in the sidebar of this blog and use it in your own blog.  I have reproduced the code below…be sure to replace {  }  brackets with <  type brackets.  The fun begins on April 22nd!!

    I think this is a fantastic idea Lyra. I won’t be buying any new supplies whosoever in that month.

    That will give me a month’s worth of pocket money to put towards my new cricut cartridge later on. lol

    I can’t purchase any new supplies, either, but I don’t know how much crafting I will be able to get done this month. This was a great idea!

    Hi girl, I haven’t been here in a while, but I’m game for sure!!! I was just talking with my scrapping sister and we agreed that we HAVE to use up what we’ve got before we buy anything new! Great, great idea!
