Drill # 5 Dig Deep!

Calling all hoarders

this drill is especially for you!
Don’t worry you're not alone, we all have boxes and boxes of embellishments, tubs of buttons and ribbon, stamps that we used once and paper stacks that could take over the house.
So this month we challenge you to dig deep into your stash and find that paper that you bought years ago and find a way to make that long forgotten scrappy goodness trendy and new!
The S.W.A.T Girls have been busy! Let’s take a look at what they have created to inspire you!
Featured S.W.A.T Girl Michele
Michele used the first scrappy tool that she bought, an "OLD" eyelet setter!

Becci dug out the darling old Enchanted collection and added some trendy new banners to create her lovely LO!

Bev dug out an old DCWV Paper Pad to create this lovely LO! 

Michele had this line for 12 years and look how beautiful her LO turned out, it just goes to show you it doesn’t have to be new to be pretty!
Melinda layered and layered her way to this beautiful updated LO!

Lisa pulled out some old Jenni Bowlin and paired it up with some old school Basic Grey to create this amazing two pager!
Jenessa stamped and distressed to make this trendy LO with scraps, that she thinks is maybe from two years ago! LOL!

Nicole added trendy arrows to last years Bo Bunny to make this amazing LO!

Alison breathed new life into some old products by using card stock from her stash and a cut file for her new Silhouette to create the bubble back ground. She then dug into her washi tape stash (some being upwards of 4 years old!) and filled in the bubbles with different patterns and colours of washi tape. 

Lanette added a banner and mist to update this old Lucy Bird Line.

And as if that wasn’t enough to get you motivated we have a great American Craft Prize Pack up for grabs!

It's time to start digging! We can’t wait to see what you find, and more importantly, what you create!

And don't forget to stop by next Saturday for
Basic Training with Melinda!
