SHOPPING OUR STASH #230 - UFO's: Use an UnFinished Object

Good morning all! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we challenge you to use UFO'S! You know, those bits and pieces that are piling up on your desk, the things you started to use then decided, nah. Well, now's your chance to get them off your desk and onto a card or project! This challenge came in handy, as I've amassed quite a big UFO pile. Here's what I made with some of it:

and the inside:

My UFO's: that stenciled panel made a couple months ago; the mint tag; the foam and vellum snowflakes. I even used one of a gazillion brads for the center of the snowflakes! I used all the 'o's from the pack of Thickers, so I MacGyvered one by cutting it out of the number 9. (That's why it looks butchered...because it is.) ☺

So, got stuff on your desk that you meant to use but decided not to? Well, now's the perfect challenge to use some of it! Link up your card or project at Shopping Our Stash so we can see it, and let us know what your UFO's are! Please do yourself a favor by visiting my teammates blogs to see their creations, and leave them some love! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you get some crafty time in today!

  1. And now you have a few less UFOs! And made a pretty card, always a bonus. ;) And if I played in the challenge, I would have a few less too!

  2. great card, love all your UFOs you used, now your stash of them is a tad smaller.

  3. Two beautiful cards from your UFO box. Always good to keep those bits and pieces that don't seem to fit at the time, because you now have two awesome cards! Thanks for playing along at ATCAS.

  4. This is such a great challenge prompt... cause we all have those piles on our desks, I bet. You really rocked it! Love the stenciled background and tag, and your layered snowflake is fabulous. And clever way to MacGyver your sentiment. I would never have noticed that wasn't a "real" o!

  5. Chris, love the tag card! This is what I would call one sweet card! Thanks for joining CYCI :) Eva
