Friday Roundup: April Stash Bust #4


The Stash Bust is drawing to a close, ya’ll…how did you hold up? I have to confess that I hit the thrift stores last weekend for fabric. It’s festival season, and my stash was getting so low! Other than that one slip, I held up all month! How about you guys?

Since the Bust is almost over, I though it would be fun this time around to pick out some posts I really dug this month. Here are five of my faves!

  1. Croqzine gives you 15 ways to bust your stash.
  2. At Cosa Verde, Liz talks about using your scraps for packaging and promotion.
  3. Julie at Crafting a Green World has an excellent stash busty tutorial for making paper chains
  4. Scoutie Girl posted and interview with Phoebe from elSage, pro stash buster!
  5. Over at Craft Leftovers, Kristin Roach talks about using color theory to maximize your stash.

With all of this stash busting inspiration, maybe I won’t be hitting the craft stores as often, even now that the bust is officially over!

  1. That’s awesome, Nicole! I think that change in how we look at our stashes is the coolest thing about this project.

    Thanks for linking to your last project, too! It’s awesome.

  2. I stayed true and didn’t buy one single thing for crafty purposes. But, I nearly caved though when I ran out of paper trimmer blades last week. At the start of the month I had a long list of things I was planning to buy once April was over. Now all that’s on the list is blades and some insulated batting. Not bad.

    Thanks for hosting this and inspiring me to use what I have.

    My last stash busting project is here:
