Challenge #229 - week of 12th September 2016

Come on, 'fess up! You have some, don't you? I know you do. Lurking in the back of your stash cupboard? Or maybe yours is front and centre like mine? You know, that stash that you are hoarding saving because the company doesn't exist any more and the page you use that last piece on needs to be perfect!

This is going to be hard ladies, but I'd like you be inspired by scrapbooking product made by a manufacture that doesn't produce scrapbook product any more.

The list feels endless over the years since I've been scrapbooking - 2006 - so I'm sure that there are many out there whose list is even longer: Making Memories, Sassafras, Cosmo Cricket, Chatterbox, Glitz, Hambly and of course, my all time favourite, BasicGrey *sniff sniff*

I think I have some of each of these somewhere in my room and I savour each piece of them - Sassafras, Cosmo and BG all the more...

A few favourites are:

Clockwise: Cosmo Cricket - Dutch Girl, Gretel and S'More Love (adore Mr Campy too);
Sassafras - Indie Girl, Sweet Marmalade;
Making Memories - Passport; Hambly - anything I have;
BasicGrey - Konnichiwa, Carte Postale, What's Up. Scarlet's Letter, Sultry
and an all time favourite, Infuse

But it's time to get them out of the protected, quarantine area of your room and highlight their beauty on a page! You've hoarded them for a reason - you love them - and you can love them all the more when they are showcasing a beautiful set of photos in your album. I promise this will be easier than it seems at first glance :-)

We'd love you to be inspired by this prompt and hope you will share your creations - there are now two ways to do this!

You can either upload your layout into the Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#229 or you can post it in our Whimsical Musings Facebook group. We've decided that we'll save albums for special occasions so just load up your photo to the group with the tag WM#229 in the write up text so that we can find it.

  1. OH-SO-GOOD one! I may try to combine a few. I even recognize some of those in your pile that I have actually scrapped with!
