Challenge 13 The Stashbuster Raid September 11, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tracey AKA rattytatty @ 5:00 am

1st of all we would like to introduce our new design team member  Barbara Hagerty. Like us I am sure many of you have appreciated her work that she enters to many challenges. We were really pleased when she agreed to join our team. You can see more of her work at

This week is all about “The stashbuster raid” We want you to reach into the back of your stash cupboards and bring out those long forgotten, or long saved papers and bits and peices to create this weeks callenge entry or entries. I know that when i looked back through my stash I found many long forgotten bits and peices.

So here are this weeks design team examples

The prize this week is a mystery selection from my stashbuster raid . Including papers, embellishments, stickers and more .

This weeks guest designer is Rosie Radcliffe

a few words from Rosie

I’ve been crafting for most of my life, starting with cutting out paper dolls and making Barbie clothes as a child! Being creative is as necessary to me as breathing – if I don’t do it I feel very flat. When I moved house two years ago I couldn’t find a craft group to join, so I started one in our large attic, and now I run monthly and weekly scrapbooking groups. I’m at home all day through disability so as well as pursuing my particular interest in ATCs and altered art, I try to post on my blog every day, which brings the world to me. I’d recently unearthed a pack of 7 Gypsies papers I’d forgotten I had – so used these to make my samples.


Hope you all enjoy unearthing your old stash as much as I did
