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!

and actually using them are two separate hobbies." (Unk)

NBUS Challenge #19


It's great to see you and I hope you're doing well! Thank you for another month of rousing participation in the NBUS Challenge. We had an outstanding 167 entries in the gallery!! WOWZA! This is a wonderful place to find inspiration and design ideas as we all share with each other how well we are doing using our never-before-used-schtuff!

From all the incredible entries, I have randomly chosen #63 Pat (Colourful Card Creations) to be our Showcase for September's NBUS Challenge #18!
Congratulations Pat and thank you for sharing your 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? Here is where you link up your NBUS work of art!

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 and here is the blog badge for your blog post:
The challenge is open from October 1, 2020, 12:05 a.m. PST to October 31, 2020, 10:00 p.m. PST. I can't wait to see what you share with us! As you can imagine, I have a huge mountain of NBUS, so I will also proudly share whenever I excavate and use something!

Thank you! Have fun!

Don't forget to follow!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
