January Use Your Stash Challenge

I know you've all got them...huge stashes of let's use them! The new Scrapdango Use Your Stash Challenges will be posted on the 10th of each month. You will have until the last day of that month to link us to your layout...just leave a comment with your link in it! You may enter up to 3 times each month. All entries from this and the sketch challenge (find it here on the Dango blog on the 20th of each month) will be entered into a drawing for a special "blog" prize pack-unique to the Dango Blog challenges. (International winners will be given a $6 shipping credit and will be responsible for the balance.)


I'm going to make this pretty easy for you but since we are trying to use up stash...let's say your layouts have to have at least 10 buttons and 3 stickers on them to be entered in to the drawing!

Button tips and ideas:

*Use buttons to frame a picture like I did in my layout.

*Use a line of buttons as a border.

*Instead of threading your button with thread or floss, try ribbon for a different look.

*Doodle on your buttons to change it up a bit.

Sticker tips and ideas:

*Use a lot of stickers to make a background or accent paper. I did this with the definition stickers on my layout.

*Use diamond glaze on letter stickers to make them "puffy" like I did on the word Erin.

*Use them as a border or frame.

*Use leftover letter stickers from a lot of different packages to make your title.

Now get out there and start digging through your stash! Once you've got your layouts finished, head over to the Dango Gallery to load them up or leave us a link to your gallery or blog here. Don't forget about that prize--beautiful SCRaPDaNGo goodies!
Have a Dango-licious day!
