I've had this quilt waiting for me to finish since October and it is finally finished! I don't know what it is that makes me procrastinate but somehow I end up avoiding a certain project. Once I actually sat down with it again I found I didn't want to stop. It was fun. Maybe I had lost sight of the big picture. Anyways here is the final product and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. Saturday Morning by Basic Grey

2016 was a reflection of how many supplies I have collected over the years and how many projects I actually finish using my supplies. The amount of supplies I have accumulated far outweighs the finished project amounts. This year I am going to try and turn that around and I'm taking you with me.
It's fun to buy the latest and greatest and then I take it to my crafting area and remember all the other "projects" I have waiting for me to get to. Guilt floods my mind. The joy of what I just bought kind of diminishes and I stuff my newly purchased items in a corner until I finish the projects I have already started, or so I tell myself.
Years later I have a room full of stuff, long forgetting what I had intended to use it for. I need to stop this cycle of buying and not using, so this year I decided to challenge myself to use my stuff. I still love a lot of it and want to use it. I just can't part with it yet. So the option is if I can't part with it I must use it!
I will be challenging myself to finish quilting, scrapbooking and art projects with my stash so if you do any of these things or any other crafty things you are welcome to join me. Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and here on my blog as I will be posting on all platforms my progress, struggles (I'm sure there will be plenty) and finished projects. If you want to show me what you are working on tag me by using #jensuseyourstuffchallenge or @jenungerfinearts, Jen Unger Fine Arts on Facebook.

Here is a video I created showing how you can store multiple embossing folders using one 12"x 12" page protector for the base and a few others for pockets using the Fuse Tool. If you are like me you get a little carried away with buying these wonderful things and run out of storage space for them. You can fit up to 24 folders on one page protector! Also use this method to get those thin dies in order along with stencils. Larger stencils can fit in the center pocket!

This week I created a layout for the Prairie Chicks Scrapbook challenge using papers from Kaisercrafts #me Collection. I don't normally like creating layouts about myself but my kids have banned me from posting layouts with them in it ( I do sneak the occasional one in there though, wink, wink). I could scrapbook about my cats but I risk being labeled that "crazy cat lady". They are so darn cute though. Two of them will have kittens this spring which we all look forward to.
Back to my layout, I started with a white piece of cardstock and used Ranger Texture Paste with a chicken wire stencil randomly adding the paste around my page. Next I found Glimmer Mist in colors that reflected the colors in the paper and splattered them on my page. I then mixed the mist with water and brushed across my paper in places. Using a circle cutter I cut a 6" circle, distressed the edges and adhered it to the page.
I tore bits from the pattern paper, curled some of the edges and layered the on the sides as well as using the ruler border strip from the edge of one of the papers. The flowers were punched out of the various pattern papers in the collection and then scrunched up to look more dimensional. A pearl brad was placed in each center. Along with sayings from the paper and the wood flourishes I just continued to layer until I came to the look I wanted.
