The blog hop has started!!!!!!!!!! Welcome to Resolution #5.

This post will remain at the top until the end of the blog hop, please scroll down for newer posts.
I'm so happy that you have decided to join us for the Let's Scrap Hoppy New Year Blog Hop!  It starts Friday, Jan.14, 2011 and runs until 11:59 pm central time on Monday, Feb. 14, 2011. That’s right: it runs for a whole month! Because it is the New Year we thought it would be fun to name the challenges Resolutions rather than Challenge #1,Challenge #2 etc.
There are 15 Design team, Contributing Design Team and Administrators from Let’s Scrap hosting the blog hop. They will each have a Resolution (challenge) for you to do and a prize that you can win. Also one of the members of the group who doesn’t have a blog is posting a couple of great challenges in the Let’s Scrap Forum and there will be in depth rules and other important information posted in the forum, so make sure to check it all out.  
Not only do you have a chance to win a prize for each challenge you enter but if you complete and post an entry for EVERY challenge along the blog hop by February14, 2011, your name will be entered into a random drawing for a wonderful prize supplied by Cosmo Cricket. On every blog in the hop you must become a follower and leave a little love (a comment) for the host. Okay, are you ready to start the Let's Scrap...hop?  First of all, make sure you start by checking Resolution#1 at Let’s Get Scrap Happy (though, of course, you may complete resolutions/challenges in any order and/or may choose to skip some if you’re not aiming for the big prize).  Now, have a look at the rules for the hop here.
Now we are ready to play. Resolution #5 is VERY simple: NOT TO OPEN ANYTHING NEW FOR THIS PROJECT. All you have to do is use a Let’s Scrap Sketch for a layout, card or project and promise not to open any new pack of ANYTHING for this layout. It doesn’t mean you have to use old products, it just means you need to have opened the pack of materials you are using now for a previous project. Of course, I can’t go to your house and check whether you have actually used a new set of stickers or the remaining letters from an older set, but what is the point of joining a challenge and not following the rules?
This is my example for this challenge, based on the left side of sketch 1-12-11.

Leave a comment here and load a photo of your work at Let’s Scrap and Tag it Resolution#5, otherwise I won’t be able to locate it among all the other layouts, cards, and  projects that will be posted. This is the prize you can win (randomly drawn winner): .
Good luck and enjoy the hop! And now, move on to the next blog in the hop: My Scrappy Story. If you get lost on the way, you can always check the list of blogs and summary of rules at Let's Scrap's main page.

I love stash challenges. My goal is to really smash a dent into the huge amount of supplies I have. I am in, and I won't open anything, I promise!

Your resolution is my favorite so far because I am trying really hard not to buy anything new and to use up all of my old scraps and product as well.
Hope I get to participate in all of the hopping funness!

Scrappin' Annie said...

This won't be a very hard challenge for me because I have resolved NOT to buy anything new until I have used up a heap of my stash and paper scraps. Hence the Scrappin' Annie. Love your little card!

VanillaCarmel said...

Cori said...

Yay! My layout is done and uploaded to the Let's Scrap gallery! Great challenge - I really need to do that more often! :)

~Kate said...

This one was really easy for me - I haven't opened anything new for the whole blog hop! I need to move my scrapbooking supplies to a smaller space next month, so this is a great way for me to try and use up some of them!

Kelly said...

Love your work, and cant wait to get started on this hop...so much fun! Thanks for the 'resolution'....could be a tough one for me....lol

Ronda said...

OH Just the Resolution for me !! I have some much stuff left over !! Cant wait to start !!

Jean said...

Just posted mine. Made it with all scraps.

Jenni said...

Perfect challenge as I have to use up alot of this stash to be able to buy some new product!

Anna said...

So let me guess, you also have stacks of forgotten stuff and are trying to get rid of it. My plan for 2010 ... use what you have and buy only what you need. Trying to stick to purchasing cardstock only, I have enough of everything else. As my hubby says: Enough stuff to open your own store, Lol.

Becca said...

Your resolution was such a great idea,I have used papers that I have had for years.It was lovely getting them out again after all this time, it brought back memories of when I first used them :D

carolyn said...

Debby said...

Caro, I just finished my page today and loved it. Stash challenges are my favorites. Thanks again and have a good weekend!

Ukka said...

drue said...

I love your cruise picture. There are so many levels and I think they look so great together. Cute card too.

Megan said...

Fun challenge, Carolina! Love that card!

Anna said...

What to do with the leftovers? Complete a challenge. We all have alphabets that are partly used and using your leftovers on a challenge like this definitely helps. Didn't open anything new:-) http://letsscrap.ning.com/photo/summer-holiday-2010?context=user

JoyceA said...

Just completed Resolution 5. Soooooo much fun. Helpful ideal to use items already opened in stash.

suscu said...

This one was such a fun to do. The flowers are punched and the palm trees are... well just bits and pieces.

Diana said...

Great Challenge. This whole year I plan on opening very little new things. I'm on a missing to use up my stash.

Love the Card.

Jacqueline said...

Thanks for posting my BLOG CANDY TOO on your blog - I love the support; I am now following you!!

Tracy said...

Got it done! This was an easy challenge for me. I don't leave anything unopened. Gotta try it the minute it comes in :)

Kavita said...

Loved this challenge as it gave me a chance to pull out some old stash and in the process landed up reorganizing my papers:-) Defenitely a follower.

Tammy said...

Great challenge - I have been trying to get better at using my stash!

Teresa Davis said...

Hey Carolina, thanks for the great challenge of making a card or layout without opening anything new. It was a good exercise. I even used mostly scraps and nothing that was not already opened. I really liked your examples, especially the valentine card. I have uploaded my take on the resolution at Let's Scrap!

Shelly said...

This was a quick & fun resolution. I love how my card turned out & I loved that I used some of my "stash" :) Thanks!

Kathy said...

I have posted both a two-page layout AND a card into the LS gallery for your challenge, Carolina! I LOVE using older stuff and scraps! Thanks for the challenge. I am already a follower here!

Cathy said...

I am already a follower.... my layout is now up in the gallery: http://letsscrap.ning.com/photo/resolution5fireman-1?context=user
