I have been following the blog of my friend Marjolaine Walker from Twelve Stones Scrapbooking for the last couple of months. Every Tuesday, she posts a challenge she has completed for Use It Tuesday. Yesterday, I finally followed the links and found a great site. Use It Tuesday encourages us all to complete a challenge every Tuesday, by using up products that we have been hoarding.

Challenge #42 was to use hoarded items, and in particular the colour “orange”.

This is what I came up with #42 Use it Tuesday

I had a pile of strips left over from a previous project. I started by weaving these on the page. Then I added some bigger pieces. I had two left over titles that I had printed on sticky acetate. I used one of these for my titles. Then I added some photos taken earlier in the day of my 2 year old grand-daughter playing in the leaves. A couple of punched out leaves for a corner embellishment and it was complete. Everything I used was from the pile on my work table.



  1. yeah, I’m so glad you decided to join me! Your scraps look lovely all put together like that. Thanks for linking up to UIT!
