Challenge #18 - Layer It!

Welcome to Challenge #18 here at Craft Hoarders Anonymous! We will be announcing the Challenge #17 Winners and Favorites on October 22nd. Check back to see if it's you!


Challenge #18 Layer It!
One good way to use your hoard is to use lots of it all at once! So, let's see those layers! We need to see at least THREE layers on your project! (Ink, paint, embossing, and mixed media products do count as layers!) Drag out all of that hoarded paper or those embossing folders that are in the back of the drawer. Use those stamps, dies, and punches! Show us the layers!

One talented participant will receive this prize donated by Lindy's Stamp Ganga $30 Gift Certificate to the Lindy's Stamp Gang store!



Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki!

Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes!

Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more!

Now, let's see what the Design Team has made with LAYERS! The team created cards, scrapbook layouts, and mixed media items in a HUGE variety of themes and styles! I know that you will find some layered inspiration here!




Thanks again, to the lovely Hoarders Design Team!

You may notice a lot of Graphic 45 papers being used by the team. Graphic 45 sponsored the team with product in the beginning of the year, and generously so! We thank not only our prize sponsors, but the companies who sent product for the team to play with. Yes, even hoarders love NEW goodies!

Take a look at our winner for Challenge #16 - Who Loves School and Office Supplies?


Our rules here at Craft Hoarders are that all winners of physical product must be in the continental USA. However, since the prize is a gift certificate, and the winner would be responsible for her own shipping, we selected Pamellia for our winner! The team was just stunned by this amazing project. We loved the office supplies and the colors and the fine details and the masculine theme! Pamellia, please email Gloria with your contact information so that she can send out your gift code!

Now, let's see what the Design Team has made with a fall theme! 




Thanks again, to the lovely Hoarders Design Team! 

Some of the team used metal on their projects from Add a Little Dazzle.


My name is Mónica Weaver and I am the founder and owner of Add a Little Dazzle.  In 2006, I left my 10+ year career as a Bilingual Educator and Interpretor/Translator in the public school system and private business sector to become a stay at home mom.  In 2007, I was introduced to the world of paper crafting and with time realized I could teach others about it.  As a result, Add a Little Dazzle was found in 2009.

As an educator with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, I realize that everybody learns differently and so I focus my teaching to all learning styles.  Whether you are a visual, auditory, or hands-on learner you are sure to find my instruction effective and easy to follow as you pursue your love of papercrafting.

Add a Little Dazzle is the only website that focuses entirely on teaching you how to incorporate metal sheets into your papercrafting projects.  Whether you enjoy stamping, card making, scrapbooking, creating 3D items or Home Decor items – you’ll find all the resources you need to incorporate metal sheets into your crafting.
My husband and I work from our office in Northern New Mexico. We are blessed with four beautiful children ages 19, 9, 7, and 3.
