Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #4...Show us some Sparkle, Glitz or Glam!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Challenge #4 at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!

Use this photo as inspiration and show us your Sparkle, Glitz or Glam!  Go into your stash and use some of those hoarded items and create something wonderful and play along with us.  Blog about your creation and then link up with us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!  It is just amazing that we are already at Challenge #4 of this brand new challenge blog.  Your participation has been just wonderful and I'm making new friends and getting to visit so many talented people!

Graphic 45 is our Sponsor for the whole month of March and they are really being generous with their gifts for the winners.  Another reason to play along with our challenge.  Who wouldn't love to win this wonderful prize package!

Now on to my creation for this challenge:

Can you see the tear stains on this paper?  I went into my hoard and pulled out the remaining pages of my very first Graphic 45 paper that I won in a challenge somewhere. (Once Upon a Springtime)   I used it to make a paper bag album for my sister awhile back and then I just felt I had to hold the remainder of these beautiful papers.  But this is about going into our hoards and making something so I just want you to know I did this just for you guys!  I still have 1 full page and some remnants left over and I'm afraid I may never use those.

Now you can visit the rest of the team by clicking on their names on my side bar or by going to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog.  Leave comments; we all love hearing from you.  Then get busy and show us some bling!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Like you, this is one of my all time favorite collections from G 45...and just like you, I hoard it. And I only pull it out for very, very special projects. I know this was the end of the road for your stash of this beautiful line...but boy oh boy, did you ever take it out in style! This is so mist rising off a morning meadow. And so whimsical I can hear the fairy bells tinkling in the background. Love the sparkly die cut, the fussy cut flowers on that sweet die cut fence and the delicate touches of sparkle. Don't even get me started on the distressed edges! Just a work of art! You have my address, right? LOL

The, flowers, that folded corner, colours and the stunning layout
I have a few Graphic papers kept for years I really must get then out and use.
Happy crafting

I can so relate to the tear stains on the last pieces of a beloved G45 paper pack!!

This turned out lovely!! I need to remember how a turned down corner of paper can add another element to the final piece!

Lovely card, love all the details especially the peek a boo corner and small picket fence...that is how I feel when I use the last of some of beloved paper collections. Tears

Janie Printz said...

Glenda, I can sure see why using the last of these papers bring tears to your eyes but they've certainly brought smiles to our faces. This is just beautiful with a wonderful vintage style. I love everything about it & that curled corner & popped up flowers just put the finished touch on it. Gorgeous !!!
LOVE the Graphic papers & can't wait to see more.
Hugs, Janie

Oh, you and these Craft Hoarders challenges! You all are so inspiring and I swear I'm going to play along someday. Fabulous prize, and more gorgeous Graphic 45 paper on this one! I loved this collection when it came out. I would be crying, too, to use the last of it, but look how pretty! Now you're using your hoarded stash and I'm proud of you, Glenda!

This is absolutely beautiful Glenda! I just love the central image with the fairies and the glittery flourish peaking out of the bent down corner.
