"New Stash/Forgotten Stash" - the February Challenge at SanDee&amelie's

Hello, hi, servus and welcome (back) to our little mixed media steampunk corner in challenge blogland!

As we started off the new year with a "Best of 2016" and as I am sure that many of us got some awesome craftin' goodies for Christmas that we want to show off with, the February challenge is the perfect occasion to do so by creating something using the new "goodness". But - if you are like me - there is also some good old stash that sits in a corner on a shelf, almost forgotten, waiting for us to be used and put back to life again too....so our challenge theme for February is

New Stash/Forgotten Stash

and as always it is an "anything goes" as long as it is somehow steampunk or industrial style-ish  and follows our few and simple challenge rules.

And as I know (and have already spotted during my visits via facebook or blogger) that many of you have already created some awesome steampunk mixed media stuff in January but couldn't enter it due to the challenge theme back then I will only this once allow makes from January being entered too! But only this once!!! Simply because it would be a shame if you couldn't share them on here, right? So IF you have already used some of your new stash and created a project - share! And if you are only starting on one - share too (as soon as it is finished)! If you use just one of the two or both - new AND forgotten stash - is all up to you. But, please, name the new/forgotten stash in your posts! 

 January winners and Top 5 will be announced on a Monday this time as I will be away on skiing holidays - so Monday, 13th February it will be and not a Saturday as usual

My wonderful team have been very busy and creative again - so a bundle of awesome inspiration is waiting for you!!! Here we go!

received a new toy for Christmas - a button maker machine! So you can find some awesome selfmade buttons (or badges) on her lovely mixed media journal page. She once more used one of her fab Gelli plate backgrounds. 

Zoja's altered calendar includes both - 
new stash: new DecoArt paints, rusty embellishments, chandelier crystal and antique head;
and forgotten stash : golden dragonfly and papers.

tells us a bit about herself:
"Many, maaany years ago my crafting journey started with jewellery-making. I've recently discovered a forgotten stash of wire from back then and decided to use it as part of my background, in combination with my new stash of beautiful colors of DecoArt Misters."

received some new computer games for Christmas 
and has created a book box to store them in.


decided to use both - new and old stash on her lovely heart wall hanging.


There will be more inspiration from Team B on the 15th as usual and you are also invited to visit the teamies' blogs to find out more about their makes and if you want to make them happy, please, leave a short comment on their blogs so they know you were there and liked what you saw! Thank you! You get to their blogs by clicking on the names. 

The February challenge will - as usual - be opened until the end of the month and don't forget that you are this once allowed to enter a project that was already made and posted about in January and that fits the challenge theme! We wouldn't want to miss any of your new or forgotten treasures! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting!
Claudia & the SASPC Team
