Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash Adventure ~ October edition!

Happy October!  My favorite month is here!! YAY!!  September sure flew by and unfortunately I did not make much of a dent in my September kit 😞  However, it's a new month with a chance to start fresh AND that means it's time for a new edition of The Great Stash Bash Adventure with Lisa & Lori!! So without further adieu let's get the party started with the October edition of Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash 2022!!

For those who are new to the challenge here is how it works:
On the 1st of each month we will post a challenge prompt and the stash kit we have created using that prompt. During the month we will try to use as much of our stash kits as possible on different projects. Then, on the last day of the month, we will do a recap post showing what stash we were able to bash!
This will be a just-for-fun challenge so there is no monthly prize - but isn't the real prize using up our stash?  We hope you will join us in our quest to bash some stash in 2022. If you accept the challenge to play along - link up on either my blog or Lori's Blog (or both if you choose) so that we can see who is joining us each month!

Now for our October Challenge:

For this month's stash bash item I kept it simple and just picked one set of ephemera!  I have TONS of ephemera to use up but I wanted to simplify in hopes of actually using up my kit this month!  It seems the more choices I have the less I use lol!! 

This month I am going to be working with just ONE kit!
Here is my October kit:
This kit is digging DEEP into my stash to pull out some VERY OLD papers and combine them with some new ephemera, stamps and stickers!! 

Close up of my favorite side of the papers:
These papers are from :Studio Calico (orange, green, & pink dots); October Afternoon (blue lines, yellow grid, multi chevron & word print); Basic Grey (circle & pink) and Sassafras Lass (ice cream cones).  Since this kit is CIRCUS themed I thought these papers really fit that theme!  It will feel good to actually use these papers up, most have been in my stash for over 15 years!  In fact, most of these companies are no longer in business, WOW!

Close up of the "B" sides of my papers:
Some of these sides don't really work with my circus theme but I think some will!

Close up of my embellishments:
My ephemera pieces are all from a new kit called STEP RIGHT UP from Illustrated Faith.  The ephemera pieces came in this ADORABLE little peanut sack!!   The stamps, tickets, and sticker sheets are also all from the Illustrated Faith Step Right Up kit. I also included some brads from October Afternoon and some old buttons and wood veneer I thought went well with this kit!  This kit from Illustrated Faith has a devotional that is included and I am planning to do this devotional by my friend Lisa Stander in October.  I plan to make a "junk journal" of sorts for my notes and plan to bind the devotional (see below) and some more papers for note taking using my cinch!  I plan to use all the above embellishments to decorate my home made junk journal notebook!  I have not yet used my cinch so I am excited to dust it off and make a fun journal this month!! Wish me luck!! 



Here are the rules for 2022:
Each month we will create a kit with 10 or more papers (dig into your stash for new or old papers it's up to  you!), 5-7 scrap papers (let's keep those scrap piles under control!), 3-4 embellishments (new or old- you decide), and a stash bash item!  This month's stash bash item is EPHEMERA!!
1. Follow the challenge prompt to create a kit to work with throughout the month. You may use other items, but try to concentrate on using your kit. 
2. Create new, not previously posted projects using your stash kit.
3. If you have a blog - please include the challenge graphic & a link to our challenge in your posts. 
4. You may link to social media if you don't have a blog. If you share on Instagram, please make sure to use - #lisaandlorisgreatstashbash2022
Since this is a just for fun challenge the rules are not set in stone BUT we have them to help you focus on what really matters using your stash!  We also hope you will help spread the word of our fun challenge so others may join in!!  You know you have at least one friend who needs to use her stash!! 
I didn't do so well on using my stash last month, however, I plan to finish up a few projects I started with last month's kit but never completed in the next week or so and will then share an update on what I was able to bash with last month's kit!! 

I am super excited to dig into my fun kit this month!! I hope you will join Lori and myself as we endeavor to bash some stash!  Remember if you play along make sure and use the hashtag #lisaandlorisgreatstashbash2022.  I can't wait to see your kit!  If you create a kit link up below to share with us all!!  Happy creating!!

TN Time with Lisa & Lori~ September edition!

Happy September!!  Fall is drawing near, the morning's have been a lot cooler and the air is turning crisp on certain evenings here in Texas!!  After so much hot weather it's a welcome relief!! It's a new month and that means a new challenge so let's get the party started with another edition of our TN Time with Lisa & Lori challenge! 

HERE IS HOW OUR CHALLENGE WORKS: 
This is a monthly challenge that launches on the 10th of each month  You will have until the 9th at midnight CST to link up your entries. If you complete my sketch challenge link your TN, bullet journal or planner spread below. If you combined my challenge with Lori's challenge link up your spread here on my blog AND on Lori's Blog (My Happy Life). This is a "just for fun" challenge with no prize, but isn't the real prize just documenting your memories and getting more pages done in 2022???!!!! 

Now for my challenge!! Here is this month's sketch:

Here is Lori's Challenge for this month (September 10th-October 9th):

Here is my spread created with the sketch and using Lori's September challenge:
Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: CTMH Grateful Heart & Stampin' Up (woodgrain); cut apart card: Bo Bunny Beautiful Things; cardstock: Stampin' Up Night of Navy & Early Espresso; letter stickers: American Crafts Thickers; puffy hearts: Bo Bunny Beautiful Things; ephemera: Pink Fresh Studios Fall Splendor; chipboard sticker: Pink Fresh Studios Fall Splendor & word strip: Pink Fresh Studios Fall Splendor; tab punch: We R Memory Keepers & Stampin' Up circle punches.

I am still working on my 2021 album, and have made it to October of 2021 so just a few more pages and it will be done!  I am determined to finish it this year!  Since the sketch didn't really allow much room to journal I made my cut apart card a pocket and using my tab punch I created my own tag and tucked it behind the cut apart quote card which is where I have added my journaling. 

Some close ups:
I loved this beautiful cut apart card from the new Bo Bunny Beautiful Things collection!  Everything I used on this spread (except the green dot paper) is from my September Stash Bash kit!  It was super easy to create this spread using my kit and the sketch! 

Lori's challenge for us this month is to use tags and since I love tags it wasn't much of a challenge in all honesty!  I hand cut these tags from the patterned paper and then punched out the hole reinforcers from cardstock. I love creating my own tags!!  

                       NOW FOR THE RULES FOR THE CHALLENGE:                              
1.Create a TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK, PLANNER, OR BULLET JOURNAL spread based on the CHALLENGE THEME and/or our sketch. 
2.Create a new, not previously posted project.
3.You are welcome to combine with other challenges.
4.If you have a blog include the challenge graphic & a link to our challenge in your post.

Be sure to stop by Lori's blog to see her awesome TN spread for this challenge! I hope you will find time to join in the fun this month!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash Adventure 2022 ~ September edition!

Happy September!  My oh my, another month has past me by!!  Once again, I did not do well with using up my kit, I just didn't take enough Summer pictures to scrap like I thought I would!  However, it's a new month with a chance to start fresh AND that means it's time for a new edition of The Great Stash Bash Adventure with Lisa & Lori!! So without further adieu let's get the party started with the September edition of Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash 2022!!

For those who are new to the challenge here is how it works:
On the 1st of each month we will post a challenge prompt and the stash kit we have created using that prompt. During the month we will try to use as much of our stash kits as possible on different projects. Then, on the last day of the month, we will do a recap post showing what stash we were able to bash!
This will be a just-for-fun challenge so there is no monthly prize - but isn't the real prize using up our stash?  We hope you will join us in our quest to bash some stash in 2022. If you accept the challenge to play along - link up on either my blog or Lori's Blog (or both if you choose) so that we can see who is joining us each month!

Now for our September Challenge:

For this month's stash bash item I didn't have a whole lot to chose from for a change!  I had purged many of my brads and most of my eyelets because I never used them!  I did keep some and so this challenge is the catalyst I needed to get me to actually use those I had been hoarding!! 

This month I am going to be working 2 kits!!!
Here is my 1st September kit:
Papers: Pinkfresh Studio Noteworthy, Heidi Swapp Color Fresh and Hip Kit Club Pretty Sweet; stickers: PinkFresh Studios Everyday Musings and Heidi Swapp; brads: unknown source (I have had these forever!)
My plan for these papers and embellishments is to create dividers for my new prayer ministry team 3 ring binder I am creating!  I am trying to get organized as I can never seem to find my notes that I take for planning our prayer events and our notes from our meetings!  I am hoping a pretty new binder will keep me more organized!

Close up of my favorite sides of the papers:

Close up of the "B" sides:

Now for my second September kit:
These papers are from Simple Stories Cozy Days (yellow plaid), Bo Bunny Beautiful Things (gold tickets, green grid and blue grid), CTMH Boutique (pink medallion & scraps-word), Hip Kit Pretty Sweet (purple scrap & pink ombre), CTMH Sweet Girl (gray) and CTMH Grateful Heart (gold leaf).
Here is the "A" side of the papers and the ones I like the most. I plan on using these fun papers to create a gratitude journal and maybe some fun Fall cards this month!!

Now for a close up of the "B" sides:
When I look at these patterns, they really don't look to good together, sometimes I feel like the "B" side of the paper doesn't really go with the "A" side and these papers are great examples of that lol!  I do think some of them will look good mixed with the "A" side though!  It will be fun to see what sides I end up using more!

Close up of my embellishments and stash bash brads:
Cut apart cards- Bo Bunny Beautiful things, brads Simple Stories I am & Vintage Great Escape; ephemera PinkFresh Studios Fall Splendor and stickers: PinkFresh Studios Fall Splendor.

I am excited to include these cut apart cards in my embellishments for this kit, I think they are super cute!  I am not sure if these brads will go well or not, some do and some don't but I have had them for so long I decided to try and make at least a few work this month with my kit as I no longer have any of the papers that match these brads!


Here are the rules for 2022:
Each month we will create a kit with 10 or more papers (dig into your stash for new or old papers it's up to  you!), 5-7 scrap papers (let's keep those scrap piles under control!), 3-4 embellishments (new or old- you decide), and a stash bash item!  This month's stash bash item is Project Life cards!!
1. Follow the challenge prompt to create a kit to work with throughout the month. You may use other items, but try to concentrate on using your kit. 
2. Create new, not previously posted projects using your stash kit.
3. If you have a blog - please include the challenge graphic & a link to our challenge in your posts. 
4. You may link to social media if you don't have a blog. If you share on Instagram, please make sure to use - #lisaandlorisgreatstashbash2022
Since this is a just for fun challenge the rules are not set in stone BUT we have them to help you focus on what really matters using your stash!  We also hope you will help spread the word of our fun challenge so others may join in!!  You know you have at least one friend who needs to use her stash!! 
I didn't do so well on using my stash last month, however, I plan to finish up a few projects I started with last month's kit but never completed in the next week or so and will then share an update on what I was able to bash with last month's kit!!

TN Time with Lisa & Lori ~ August edition!

Happy August!! The year sure is flying by and I like most of you am sure looking forward to Fall, which is my favorite season!  This month's post is a few days late due to my work schedule but as they say better late than never!! So let's get the party started with another edition of our TN Time with Lisa & Lori challenge!

HERE IS HOW OUR CHALLENGE WORKS: 
This is a monthly challenge that launches on the 10th of each month  You will have until the 9th at midnight CST to link up your entries. If you complete my sketch challenge link your TN, bullet journal or planner spread below. If you combined my challenge with Lori's challenge link up your spread here on my blog AND on Lori's Blog (My Happy Life). This is a "just for fun" challenge with no prize, but isn't the real prize just documenting your memories and getting more pages done in 2022???!!!! 
Now for my challenge!! Here is this month's sketch:

Now for Lori's challenge (August 15th-September 9th):

Here is my layout created with the sketch & using Lori's challenge:
Supplies Used: Patterned Paper: Elle's Studio Sunny Days (woodgrain), Simple Stories Holly Days (green polka dot), Crate Paper Falala (striped), Pink Paisley And Many More (pink dot), Carta Bella Flower Garden (blue polka dot), Pebbles Cozy & Bright (floral), and  Coca Vanilla Joyful (plaid); Stickers: Simple Stories Holly Days; Letter Stickers: American Craft Thickers; enamel dots My Mind's Eye and date stamp: Heidi Swapp.
I had so much fun mixing up all these different manufacturers!!  These paper were all in my scrap pile except for the woodgrain paper that was a full 12x12 sheet from my Stash Bash kit for August!!   Every time I look at my scrap pile I think it is growing without me adding to it, so gotta keep it under control!! 

Now for some close ups:
I just love this sticker of this gal with all those packages, I thought it was perfect to document our girls holiday shopping trip last Fall!  I used 2 polka dot papers here as you can see, I just love polka dot papers, don't you?

I love the woodgrain paper for my large tag! Instead of punching a hole in my tag I decided to use this floral sticker at the top and like how it turned out!  I also used another polka dot paper on this page to satisfy Lori's challenge to use polka dot paper so all in all I used 3 different polka dot papers!!

                       NOW FOR THE RULES FOR THE CHALLENGE:                              
1.Create a TRAVELER'S NOTEBOOK, PLANNER, OR BULLET JOURNAL spread based on the CHALLENGE THEME and/or our sketch.

Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash Adventure ~ August 2022 edition!!

Happy August!  My oh my, where did July go??? Time continues to fly but it's a new month with a chance to start fresh AND that means it's time for a new edition of The Great Stash Bash Adventure with Lisa & Lori!! So without further adieu let's get the party started with the August edition of Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash 2022!! 

For those who are new to the challenge here is how it works:
On the 1st of each month we will post a challenge prompt and the stash kit we have created using that prompt. During the month we will try to use as much of our stash kits as possible on different projects. Then, on the last day of the month, we will do a recap post showing what stash we were able to bash!

Now for our August Challenge:

Once again this is a stash bash item I have MORE than a lifetime supply of!! In fact, the 2 storage boxes I have for my Project Life cards are full and I am determined to sort through them and either use some of them up or purge some so that I don't have to buy another storage box!  So this challenge came at the perfect time! 

This month I am going to be working from just one large kit!!!
Here is my August kit:
Here are my 10 papers.  I chose just 10 in hopes of using them up!  These papers are from the following lines: Elle's Studio Sunny Days (woodgrain), Echo Park Endless Summer (yellow pineapple), Bella Blvd Oh My Stars (orange stars), Echo Park Birthday Wishes (pink), Bella Blvd Time to Travel (teal small white dot), Echo Park Summer Bliss (orange chevron) and the rest of the papers are from the Pebbles Fun in the Sun collection.  

These are the back sides of the papers that are my least favorites.  This kit contains papers that are very old, so I am hoping to finally be able to use them up!

Now for my scraps:
As you can see I included a large number of scraps this time! These scraps are from various CTMH collections, Elle's Studio and from Cocoa Vanilla's Sun kissed collection.

Now for my stash bash item- Project Life cards:
These cards are from various manufacturers including Elle's Studio, American Crafts, and The Reset Girl.  The larger cut apart sheet is from Elle's Studio Sunny Days collection and the smaller cut apart sheet is from Cocoa Vanilla Sun Kissed collection.

Now for my embellishments:
I am hoping to scrap a lot of my Summer photos, so I picked an ephemera pack from Cocoa Vanilla's Sun Kissed collection as well as a set of floral ephemera from the Cocoa Vanilla Sun kissed collection.  The enamel dots are from the Bo Bunny Beautiful Things collection . The puffy hearts are from the Jen Hadfield Live & Let Grow Line.  And finally the stickers are from the Doodlebug Live, Laugh, Happy collection.  These are definitely some fun embellishments, don't you think??!!!

Here are the rules for 2022:
Each month we will create a kit with 10 or more papers (dig into your stash for new or old papers it's up to  you!), 5-7 scrap papers (let's keep those scrap piles under control!), 3-4 embellishments (new or old- you decide), and a stash bash item!  This month's stash bash item is Project Life cards!!
1. Follow the challenge prompt to create a kit to work with throughout the month. You may use other items, but try to concentrate on using your kit.

Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash Adventure 2022 ~ July edition!

Happy July!  What happened to June???  Gosh time sure has a way of moving right along doesn't it?  I always love the start of a new month, it's a chance to start fresh AND that means it's time for a new edition of The Great Stash Bash Adventure with Lisa & Lori!! So without further adieu let's get the party started with the July edition of Lisa & Lori's Great Stash Bash 2022!! 

For those who are new to the challenge here is how it works:
On the 1st of each month we will post a challenge prompt and the stash kit we have created using that prompt. During the month we will try to use as much of our stash kits as possible on different projects. Then, on the last day of the month, we will do a recap post showing what stash we were able to bash!
This will be a just-for-fun challenge so there is no monthly prize - but isn't the real prize using up our stash?  We hope you will join us in our quest to bash some stash in 2022. If you accept the challenge to play along - link up on either my blog or Lori's Blog (or both if you choose) so that we can see who is joining us each month!

Now for our July Challenge:

I have a plethora of 12 x 12 stickers sheets!!  This is definitely one stash bash item I need to bash!  One thing I have found is that after I use up all the paper from the collection to which the 12 x 12 sticker belongs I usually have MANY stickers left!  So I place these orphan stickers in a drawer so I can easily access them when making cards or my TN spreads...then once I am down to just a few stickers that I know I most likely wont' ever use because they aren't pertinent to my activities i.e. fishing or something like that I then pull them off the sheet, place them on wax paper and include them in a card I am sending to someone that I think might enjoy them OR if that person isn't crafty I will just decorate the envelope of the card I mailing them with those random stickers!  The partial sticker sheets I am using in this month's kits are going to be "destashed" at the end of this month and moved along to new homes! The full sheets I will most likely keep for a bit longer but I need to make more room in my drawer!

Now for this months kits!!!
This month I have created 2 fun kits!
My 1st July kit:
This kit includes papers from the Simple Stories Summer Days collection.  I have decided I have hoarded this collection long enough, it's time to use it!  

The front of my favorite papers and scraps:
My two scrap papers are pretty large and the one is cut apart cards that I think are so fun, hoping to use them up!  These papers are from Echo Park Summer Dreams (cut apart cards) and Echo Park Summer Bliss (a really old collection that is basically now all scraps!)

The back side of the papers & scraps:

My embellishments and stash bash item- 12 x 12 sticker sheets:
The tickets are cut out from some old October Afternoon paper.  My 12 x 12 sticker sheets are from the Simple Stories Summer Farmhouse collection, Echo Park Summer Bliss collection, and the Simple Stories Sumer Days collection.  

My second kit:
These papers and the ephemera pieces are all from the Vicki Boutin Color Study collection.

My favorite side of the papers and scraps:
I just love these papers and bought just the few you see here and have neglected using them because they are so gorgeous, but it's time to make more room for more Vicki Boutin goodness!!  I love EVERY collection she releases!  I am planning to treat myself to some of her newest line called Print Shop if I use up this kit!

The back side of the papers and scraps:
For this kit I plan to make some dividers for a notebook I am making to keep all the things from a new subscription group I joined called Cultivate.  I am excited to use up these papers making some cute dividers and a cover for my notebook!

A close up of my 2 x 12 sticker sheets:
This Vicki Boutin collection does not have a matching 12 x 12 sticker sheet but I was able to pull out a bunch of the ones I currently have including letter stickers (since I'm using this kit for dividers I need letter stickers), that I think will work with these papers.  I think some of them will even coordinate with my first kit as well!  They are from the following collections:  Simple Stories I Am, Echo Park Creative Agenda, Simple Stories Carpe Diem, Echo Park Creative Agenda, Photo Play Paper Wild Honey, Jenni Bowlin (these letter sticker are SUPER old!) and Photo Play Paper Wicker Lane! 

The embellishments that are not 12 x 12 sticker sheets:
The ephemera and cut apart card sheet are from the Vicki Boutin Color Study line. The stickers are from the Vicki Boutin Kaleidoscope collection.

Here are the rules for 2022:
Each month we will create a kit with 10 or more papers (dig into your stash for new or old papers it's up to  you!), 5-7 scrap papers (let's keep those scrap piles under control!), 3-4 embellishments (new or old- you decide), and a stash bash item!  This month's stash bash item is 12 x 12 sticker sheets!!
1. Follow the challenge prompt to create a kit to work with throughout the month. You may use other items, but try to concentrate on using your kit. 
2. Create new, not previously posted projects using your stash kit.
3. If you have a blog - please include the challenge graphic & a link to our challenge in your posts. 
4. You may link to social media if you don't have a blog. If you share on Instagram, please make sure to use - #lisaandlorisgreatstashbash2022
Since this is a just for fun challenge the rules are not set in stone BUT we have them to help you focus on what really matters using your stash!  We also hope you will help spread the word of our fun challenge so others may join in!!  You know you have at least one friend who needs to use her stash!! 

I am super excited to dig into my fun kit this month!! I hope you will join Lori and myself as we endeavor to bash some stash!  Remember if you play along make sure and use the hashtag #lisaandlorisgreatstashbash2022.  I can't wait to see your kit!  If you create a kit link up below to share with us all!!  Happy creating!!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
