Challenge #61: Something Old - Something New

Welcome to 2012 - here's to another year of challenges and fun!

We enjoyed looking at your entries for the last challenge and have been inspired by different ways on how to make use of those buttons!

For Challenge No #61 we would like to see you use something OLD and something NEW.

We tend to buy the latest and greatest stuff that is available to adorn our projects but what about the older stash we still have sitting gathering dust?

This month we challenge you to create a project which uses 50% of the oldest stash you have in your possession and 50% of the newest stuff you bought.

Be sure and comment with a link to your *newly created* project so we can see and comment on them. 
If you link us to an online gallery, make sure that you only use one for which we do not need to register in order to view/comment
Please also consider to switch of word verification on your blogs if you would like our DT to leave comment. If you are worried about Spam you may want to have commen moderation enabled instead

And here are our DT examples to give you an idea on how to combine the old with the new

Something old: Basic Grey papers, Magic Mesh, Fibers
Something new: 7 Dots Studio paper

Something oldpapers (MME Lost & Found Christmas); felt gingerbread man (Favorite Findings); poinsettia (The Girls Paperie); Christmas brad (BoBunny); glitter cut border (Fancy Pants)
Something newgold bling (Forever in Time); alphas (Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts, Forever in Time) oldest (2005!): Christmas postage stamp stickers (Pebbles Inc.); Christmas ornament sticker (for the letter "o") (Jolee's)

Designer Notes: "I found Pink Pailee's NEW Snow Day Collection ephemera a while back in my LSS, but they never purchased the paper to go along with the collection, so I was able to find older papers in my stash to mimic the collection and match the ephemera."

Something Old: Studio Calico tags, fabric strip, cloud rub on, mists.
Something VERY old: Heidi Swapp alphabet masks, #sticker, SEI epoxy bubbles, "Cute kid" fabric tag and the photos too - 2005!
Something New: Pink Paislee Nantucket die cuts, background paper.

Something Old:: Crate Paper (Emma's Shoppe)
Something New: Crate Paper (Random)

Something Old: Create My Keepsake Kit -Jan or Feb 2008 kit: Patterned Paper: Doodlebug Design Inc. (Polka-Dot), Fancy Pants (Penguin); Embellishments: Heart Pin and Felt Heart Paperclip.
Something New: Scrapbook Circle Kit- Jan 2012: Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants (heart cu out; Embellishments: My Mind's Eye (felt border and ticket), Doily, Heart Shaped Paperclip; Stickers: Glitz

I was just finishing this album when I saw your challenge. It's got old, new and really really old (2003) rub on's in this I have a stash? lol. Here is my your site, the challenge and all the inspiration!

Penny said...

Okay ladies, I have posted my layout here: it's the layout of my granddaughter Madison's first day of pre-school, you'll have to scroll down a couple of layouts to find it. Anyone who has been scrapping as long as I have will recognize the 'REALLY "old black "ABC" paper. What a blast to finally use some of it, yeah you read right I STILL have some to use! I didn't have anything new to add, so I just added a new technique for me which was the homemade banner. Love Penny

Penny said...

Hi ladies, It's me again! Sorry, but you have really helped me to get moving on scrapping up my old supplies!
My newest layout with my old supplies is the one titled Baseball. It uses all old supplies, but the star shape is from a new punch, or at least new to me punch! LOL

Penny said...

I'm back, what can I say,you gals have just got me moving and for that I THANK YOU! I would also like to take the time to "Thank" each of you for commenting on my layouts. Since I have a brand new blog, I don't have a lot of people helping to keep me motivated. At any rate, here is my newest layout
Everything on here is old except for the photo, which is from this season's football game. Thanks again ladies. Love Penny

Fun challenge and usually a super easy one except since I just moved the last thing I need was more scrap things so my newest is from my last kit I got. The old that was the easy part! LOL
