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 #28


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 116 entries in the gallery! WOW!!! Thank you for all the amazing inspiration!

This is a wonderful place to find design ideas as we all share with each other how well we are doing using our Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. I find myself returning again and again to the galleries to find card design ideas when I am running low on mojo, so thank you all for that!

From all the incredible entries, I have randomly chosen #25 Deborah to be our showcase for June's NBUS #27:
Congratulations Deborah 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 have just purchased or something collecting dust in the back of a drawer, you are proud when you use something never-before-used in your creation and here is where you link up to share those NBUS works of art! (And as you can imagine, I have a huge mountain of NBUS, so I will also proudly share whenever I excavate and use something.)

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. 

You may use this badge for your blog post if you like, but it is not mandatory. 
I can't wait to see what you share with us! 
The challenge closes July 31, 2021, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!

Please note that if you receive NBUS post notifications via email, you will need to switch over to Bloglovin' (on the side bar) or some other service. If you have a blog and don't wish to receive notice via email, you can follow via the blue button (on the side bar under the faces) and you will receive notifications via your blog reader. Alternately, you can always bookmark this site. Let me know if you have any questions via the Contact Form. Thank you for your support!

Also, a friend just let me know that her Norton Anti-virus software gave her a warning when she went to link her card, stating that this sweet little website is "a known dangerous website!" 😕 No, it's not! Please let me know if you receive a similar message. Thank you.

Thank you!
