Use Your Stuff Monday

We all have crafty friends that enable us, and who we enable in return, right? My enablers are Holly of Hollybeary Creations and Rita of Rita's Creations. Recently Rita and Holly were talking about the crafty items we were all accumulating but not using and what better way to get our stuff out and used but to encourage each other and work together! That is how Use Your Stuff Monday came to life and here we go!

Today we are using Lawn Fawn products and playing along with the Lawnscaping Challenge, which is to use some type of dimension. I decided to pull out the set Critters in the Arctic. I spent Saturday afternoon photographing a beautiful young bull moose so I have moose on the brain, but what else is new :)

I used papers from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day collection to create the photo frame and the background. I love how versatile these papers are! I used the Lawn Fawn  Forest Border to create the little scene behind the moose and then used a white gel pen to create a stitched border.

For dimension my moose is popped up as is the sentiment banner.

It sure felt good to get these items out and used! If you'd like to play along with me, Holly and Rita feel free to grab your forgotten Lawn Fawn products and link up below! Make sure you head over to their blogs to see what they created!

The young bull moose I photographed Saturday at Potters Marsh, in the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. You can tell it's a bull moose by the nubs above his eyes, where the antlers are just starting to come in. Only the males get antlers, female moose do not.
