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 #38

Welcome!!
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 (NBUS)!

It's great to see you and I hope you're doing well! Thank you for playing in the April NBUS Challenge with all your unused goodies! From all the incredible entries, I have randomly chosen #7 Loll to be showcased!
This is adorable, especially with the great advice! Congratulations, Loll, 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 tickled when you use something never-before-used in your creation and here is where you share those NBUS works of art! There are instructions for how to link on a tab above.

Guest Designer!

To thank you for sharing your NBUS all these years (and/or to schpark your fire if you're in a bit of slump), I am randomly inviting participants to join me as guest designers! This month I'm happy to welcome Linda!

Hello crafty friends! I'm delighted to be Darnell's Guest Designer this month! I've played at NBUS for a long time and hope she'll continue the challenge forever. I have a mountain of NBUS and it just seems to get bigger!

I'm a long-time crafter and I have made cards since 2007. I'm a former Hero Arts Hostess & Merry Monday (a retired Christmas Card Challenge) designer and I am currently on the Design Team for 
Die Cut Divas. You can find my cards in Blogland at Scrappin', Stampin', & Singin'.

Here is Linda's card to inspire you:
Amazing design! Thank you for being our Guest Designer this month, Linda!

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 May 31, 2022, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!
Thank you!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Such a fun Anita Jeram stamp and beautifully coloured by Loll as the showcased card this time, and great to see Linda as the GD this time with a wonderfully stitched card and the colour combination looks terrific aginst the navy card, and some super NBUS makes in the gallery already. x
