Week 220 - Use your new stash

Good Saturday Morning to you all,

Thankyou for all of your fabulous entries for Catherine's Challenge last week.

It is my turn this week (Jo) to bring you a Challenge from Allsorts and I thought that this title that I chose would be really applicable to all you crafters out there!!!

Use Your New Stash

I would love to see a project made using anything that you have recently bought, received or acquired!  This isn't specific to papercrafting so I hope that you all have a go as we have TWO sponsors this week and the first is:

 Yours and Mine Papercrafts:

Hello! My name is Mei and I have been card-making for about 3 years now but my tremendous love for it has inspired me to open up my very own online store! Yours and Mine Paper Crafts is a place where you can purchase supplies to create your own projects, or view my gallery for inspiration! We carry brands like The Greeting Farm, Penny Black, Spellbinders and more! All the brands and products we carry are items I have personally used for my own projects and I feel are awesome products that you would like as well.

The Second sponsor this week is: 

and the prize is 4 images of the winners choice.

Our fabulous Design Team have had a go at the Challenge and have come up with some designs using their new stash I hope that you like the inspiration.

Using Indian Elephant and Textile stamps from Chocolate Baroque

using a new La Blanche stamp 

Brand new spellbinders die and design paper from Maja Design
Using my new Sheena Fantasy Flowers and also new Spellbinder Die.

 new Lily Bee papers & Whimsy Stamps digital image
New Digi Papers and Sentiments!

Tracy Mouse
New LOTV music stamp, Lacy Sunshine Image and Dusty Concord ink

New Die Cuts

I think we have been a lucky lot having all this new stuff to play with!!

We all hope you can join us this week for this challenge and look forward to visiting your blogs.

Note added 14.40 GMT 23rd August: Although the linky still appears open the challenge is now closed.

 I hope that you enjoy this week's Challenge.
