Among this week's challenges at Two Peas in a Bucket is a real stash-buster! The challenge is actually called "the STASH-BUSTING Layout," and it involves ten steps that will help you to make a dent in your stash while also creating a project that you'll love.
The challenge begins today, and runs through next week Friday. I do hope you'll decide to play along! There's an extra perk: participants who upload their layouts to Two Peas by next Friday will be entered to win a Two Peas gift certificate. Sweet.
One of the posts this week on the Two Peas in a Bucket blog featured guest (and pea) Ashley Calder, who shared how she created the following layout based on inspiration she found on Pinterest. In turn, I'm totally inspired by her! Every one of her layouts comes from the heart, and it shows.

As of this morning, OA's Midway is now at Two Peas! Here's what else I've been loving lately:
|Witch Hazel is my go-to line for Halloween projects this year. I just used these uber-cute Tin Pins on a layout a few days ago. Try saying "tin pins" ten times fast. Is it even possible?|
|You know how I am about printing on labels. While not all labels are printer-friendly, these OA Licorice Label Stickers sure are! As a plus, these aren't really theme-y and can be used on all sorts of projects.|
|I know that people tend to overuse the word "cute" (and I'm probably one of them), but c'mon -- these Doodlebug Ghosties are soooooo cute! I'm not sure if they're going on a card or a layout yet, but I will put them to good use come October. I was joking (I think) with the Garden Girls that even if I have to cut out some holes from a sheet and throw it over the dog in order to get a picture for a layout, there will be a project in the near future that includes these cuties.|
|I love that the new BasicGrey Micro Monogram Stickers come in a bunch of different colors, and that they can be worked into layouts subtly. Plus, it's great to see so many extra vowels! I've been picturing a page with the journaling done entirely in these stickers.|
|One moment I'm thinking about Halloween, and the next, Christmas! It's never too early to start working on holiday projects, I say, especially ones that incorporate these Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday "Magic of Christmas" stamps. I so love those capital letters!|
To thank you for stopping by today, I would love to offer you a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Two Peas in a Bucket. After all, if you do decide to undertake a stash-busting project, you'll have some extra space in your stash, am I right? To be entered to win one of the TWO gift certificates that I'll be giving away, just leave a comment by Wednesday, September 26, at 6:00 p.m. Hawaii time. In your comment, name one item from your stash that you want to put to use in a project, and one item you wouldn't mind adding to your stash. Don't forget to include your pea name as well, so that I can contact you via pea mail if you win.
Onward! The next stop on the blog hop is Garden Girl Amy Tan. You can also start from the beginning by going to the Two Peas in a Bucket blog. Happy hopping!
