I coined the acronym NBUS in 2013 and ran several challenges until 2017. The term caught on and is still being used in Blogland, so I thought this would be a good time to resurrect my NBUS challenge. I set up this dedicated NBUS website for crafty artists to share their works of art containing any brand-new virginal Never-Before-Used-Schtuff! We bought it ~ now let's use it to share and inspire others!

NBUS Challenge ~ 15

Welcome!!

It's great to see you! Thank you for another month of rousing participation in the NBUS Challenge! We had an outstanding 135 entries in the gallery! You might want to bookmark this site as a wonderful go-to place for oodles of inspiration and design ideas!

From all those incredible entries, I have randomly chosen this card by Di Wray to be our Showcase for May!
Congratulations Di and thank you for sharing your many wonderful creations using NBUS!

~~~

The basic idea of this challenge is evident in the name. Whether it's something you just purchased or something collecting dust in the back of a drawer, who isn't proud when they use something never-before-used in their creation? This is the place where you link up your work of art in order to share that pride and inspire others!

There are no limitations on what you can create, but there are a few RULES which you can find on the tab above. If this is your first visit, please take a minute to read them. You can also click here for answers to any questions you might have. 
The challenge is open from June 1, 2020 at 12:05 a.m. PST to June 30, 2020 at 10:00 p.m. PST. I can't wait to see what you share with us! Enjoy! 


Thank you!

  8. WTG Di, I'd say you'll now be doing a lot more herringbone designs with your snippets :) Does anyone else have an issue with thumbnail pics not showing in the links? It started for me about a week ago and I only get grey boxes with a number, name, and a place to click to visit the blog. I didn't change a thing that I'm aware of, but I miss seeing all the great entries for inspiration!

  20. Thank you for showing me that I was living in denial Darnell and was actually in danger of being buried under an avalanche of NBUS!! Am quite cheerful about it though - what a great problem to have :) Mwah! Vicky x
