Shopping our Jingle Belles Stash!

Surprise! Guess what? Shopping our Stash and Jingle Belles have teamed up for a special stash-busting Christmas challenge - given our teams' different schedules, this is a bonus challenge for SOS. I'm definitely thrilled to be on board with this one - I'm halfway through my second year of crafty resolution to play along with the Jingle Belles all year long!

What we're asking you to do is create your Christmas card using supplies that are AT LEAST a year old. Make sure to tell us what your old stash items are!! As you'll see with the DT creations, your supplies can be much older than a year ;) Then link up your card with both challenges, and ta-da :)

Here's my card, using a bunch of Prima North Country:

Supplies: paper & chipboard from Prima; JOY stickers from Jillibean Soup; blue rhinestones from Dollarama

The rhinestones are the newest supplies on my card - they are a bit over a year old, since that's the last time Dollarama was carrying the multi-size packs (sob). The letter stickers are at least 2 years old, and the papers at least 3. I've reinforced the adhesive on the chipboard & letters because old stickers aren't very sticky (Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear....for crafty people. lol)

With so many of us playing along, you can visit both challenge blogs to see all the creations - 

Jessi (that's me!)

You've got until July 16 to link up - we hope to see you there! Make sure to visit both challenge blogs to see the lovelies up for grabs :)
