Let’s See That Hoard: Challenge #2 CHACB
Good Morning, Friends! It’s time for another support group meeting for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. Let’s See That Hoard Challenge #2 is a color challenge with a twist. Here’s the deets:
This is a Color Challenge with a twist. Pick the thing or things that you seem to hoard the most, and using the color scheme shown below, create a project that showcases your hoarded item or items. Do you hoard buttons, beads, ribbon, papers, stickers? Show your hoard, but only the items that match the color scheme! (Please note, you do not have to use all the colors in the photo, nor match the colors exactly. Just use the photo and the colors to inspire you to dig through your hoard.)
You saw projects from the fabulous Team A last week. This week, it’s time to see what Team B has prepared to inspire and amaze you. Here are the links to each of the designers’ blogs:

OK. Last week, I shared this sneak peek of my challenge project with you:
But now I can show you the whole thing. Ready?
Yes, I made a card! But this is a really special card because I had to use the very last January page in my Graphic 45 “A Place in Time” hoard. You know how that goes…you observe a moment of silence before you cut into the page, hold your breath and do it real quick before you can change your mind! I hoard paper. Lots of paper. An embarrassing amount of paper. But I especially hoard my G45 paper. Especially when I am down to my last sheet of a page I really love. But in the spirit of the CHACB, I made the sacrifice and used this favorite image.
My Great-Grandmother subscribed to McCall’s magazine, and I used to love to cut out the Betsey McCall paper dolls that came in each issue. Does anybody else remember them? So, when G45 used a McCall’s magazine cover image in this paper collection…well, I sort of swooned a little.
I paired this lovely lassie up with some silver cardstock from my scrap basket. I used one of the embossing folders from my hoard to create my own background paper. I inked the folder with Broken China Distress Ink, ran it thru my machine, then sprinkled it with glittery embossing powder. Yes, I hoard embossing powder, too. I also added some specialty glitter to the corners because I hoard that, too. And buttons….I hoard buttons. I have a serious problem with buttons. And rhinestones. I’m starting to feel embarrassed here….but then I know I am among friends who understand the compulsion to purchase and hold on to beautiful crafting goodies. You do understand, right?
I also love ribbon, and this satin shimmer ribbon from RRR makes me weak in the knees. Pair it up with some feathers from my stash, and I start getting really happy!
The inside follows the blue and silver color theme. I used a snowflake punch that I’ve had forever. And, yes..I hoard punches, too. Don’t you?
