Stash-Busting Challenge 2018: Layout #1

Not only am I finally using my stash-busting challenge kit, but I am also playing catch-up on my month-in-review layouts.  Usually I'm not one to think about scrapbooking in terms of being "behind" or "caught up," but I do try to keep the gap between experiencing the month and documenting the month rather small. 

It was tough to actually work in the blueprint paper here, as I was planning on hoarding it for eternity,  and though I did cringe while running the paper cutter blade down the paper, I am glad to see that bold blue here. Much of this page is an exercise in de-hoarding, now that I think of it, with very little new product represented. There's even some Love, Elsie and KI Memories goodness to contribute to the happy and colorful vibe of the page. 

If you've been playing along with the challenge (or want to start) and are posting on Instagram, don't forget to tag @jill.scrap and use the hashtag #stashbustingchallenge2018 when posting your images. If Instagram isn't your thing, you can also post your images and tag me via the Get It Scrapped Community on Facebook, or you can post on your blog and share a link to the post in the comments below.  You don't have to post everything all at once -- individual posts are totally fine! 

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. I love this!! A little late to the stash-busting party but, hey, I'm here!! I can't wait to dive in and get crafty with 'old' products. I could use some de-hoarding myself! Thank you for your inspiration ;)

    1. Thank you, Sarah! I'm happy to hear that you're joining in -- there's still lots of time!
      I'm working on layout #2 today. I wonder if I can stretch the kit past three layouts. Hmmm...

  2. Love this layout!! I’m trying to use my stash more often too. Every time I get a new kit, I want to use it right away though!!! I will try to take part in the challenge soon!! Thanks for the inspiration ��
