Scrap Our Stash and The ScrapRoom Team Up for NSD!

Hello everyone!
Scrap Our Stash and The ScrapRoom have teamed up to celebrate
National Scrapbook Day
and we are inviting all of our paper crafting friends to celebrate with us.
The celebration starts today, allowing you plenty of time to play
along as well as join in other NSD activities.

Today we are revealing the challenges and inspiration from the design teams.
We will post additional design team inspiration, inspired by the challenges on Friday and Saturday
so make sure you check out both blogs all three days to see what our awesome
team members have created to share with you.

The SOS Challenge:
Create a layout using one PRE-SELECTED stash item of your choice for each letter in the word STASH
Each letter has (3) pre-selected stash items for you to choose from:

                                                    S ~ Sequins, Staples, or Stickers
                                                    T ~ Tags, Tape, or Transparency
                                                    A ~ American Crafts, Ampersand(&),or Arrow
                                                    S ~ Stencil, Stick Pins, or Striped Print
                                                    H ~ Hashtag (#), Heart(s) or Hemp (cord)

Note: You must use a different stash item for each letter. For example if you use an American Crafts tag, you can ONLY use it for the the letter A or the T not both. The Hashtag (#) and the Ampersand (&) signs MUST also be actual stash items or part of the print in the patterned paper. These symbols used in handwritten or typed journaling will not count.
When posting your layout on your blog or gallery, please list the items you used.
