Catch-Up Sunday

Wow here it is May already. Here at Scrap Our Stash we finished out the month with lots of activity. Four Design Team Members shared their April Lift Challenge. Joni and Kathy shared layouts which they Lifted, Kimmarie shared a tin that she lifted, and Robin shared a layout she did using a sketch. So, there were lots of additional projects for you to use as inspiration.

Our Frugal Friday Tip was from Wendy, and gave a tip on how to get just the right color of paper to use . What a great idea when you don't have the option of going shopping for that perfect paper! This is a great way to use your stash also. We are always looking for frugal tips - send yours to and you could be featured on SOS in the near future.

Former Design Team Member Megan, submitted her After pictures for the Spring Cleaning Challenge. This was a fun challenge that gave some of us just the encouragement we needed to get our scrap area back in shape. Voting for the prize will begin soon. Watch for further details.

On Thursday you were introduced to our May Guest Design Team Member - Brittney. Be sure to check out her bio and the layout she shared. Were looking forward to sharing lots more of Brittney's projects with you during the month of May.

Christine was our winner of the April Challenge. Her project was a lift of a layout by her talented sister :). Christine will be our Guest Design Team Member in June.

Our May "Get out of your Box" Challenge was announced on Saturday. I think this will be a fun challenge to participate in, and am anxious to see what "box" you will be getting out of, and the results. Design Team Member, Guest Design Team Members and Readers' samples will be posted thoughout the month for inspiration. Be sure to check back regularly. A winner will be chosen from all reader submissions, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of July. It could be YOU!


We now have our first Sponsor. A Little Bit of This and That. Check out the description of the prize offered this month. It is in the sidebar with a link. Stay tuned to SOS - details of the contest will be announced soon.

Our April Guest Design Team Members, Laurie, Mardi, Rachel and Stephanie have all been asked to stay on as Guest Design Team Members. So we will all be able to continue to enjoy their talent for the next 3 months.

Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge - will start May 15th. Guest Design Team Member Robin, has agreed to create a exclusive sketch for Scrap Our Stash each month. Our first sketch will be posted on the 15th of May. Readers are encouraged to use the sketch and submit their version by June 15th. A winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to serve on the Guest Design Team for the month of July.
