Guesting at Use It Tuesday

I won a guest spot with the girls at Use It Tuesday a few weeks ago.  You can see the layout that won the spot here.  Today is the day I'm up on their blog.  I love what their mission - to encourage scrappers to use up their hoarded, or simply forgotten about supplies.

The challenge they have for you today is to use a stamp that has never been inked.  I'd be willing to bet you have one, or two, or 5 kicking around too, just like me. 

This Jillibean Soup Travel set came in a Scrapbook Nook kit two summers ago.
I loved that globe, but somehow just never got around to using it.  I had only used 3 of these 9 stamps in fact. 

This challenge combined with our recent trip to Las Vegas provided the perfect opportunity to ink it up.  I decided to emboss it so I could set it on top of a few layers.
I used the October kit from Scraptastic to complete the layout, along with a sheet of Studio Calico paper that I've also been hanging on to for months, and months also.
The painted background was done using a Pink Paislee mask
Hidden journaling exposed
more horded product: Sass letter, MME brad, and SC arrows
I am so happy with the way this layout turned out.  I always enjoy adding several bits and pieces to my layout, but often forget that stamps can get the job done too.  Please hop over to the UIT blog to see what the rest of the team pulled out of their hoarded stash for this week's challenge.  Perhaps we've inspired you to pull out some of those stamps and get 'em dirty.  If so please link us up.  You have a week and a half to link up.

A huge thank you to Siobhan and team for having me today!

Sherri, thank you so much for joining us this week. I don't know if you noticed, but there was a slight mix-up and I missed your project on our initial post. However, I have updated it now and I wanted to come by and THANK YOU so much for playing AND apologize for my goof. Love the project! Heather from Use It Tuesday.
