Shopping Our Stash #236 - Inspired by a book...

Thanks for stopping by on this lovely Tuesday to check out the new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge!

This week CHANA is hosting and her challenge is to make a project inspired by a book. Be sure to tell us what book you picked as your inspiration!

I based my card on "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. It's always been one of my favourite books and some of the wee monstahs in the "Be Different" collection by Fancy Pants remind me of the wild things in the book.

Here's what I made for the challenge:

As a book inspired challenge, I wanted my card to have lots of (maybe too many??) words and a library card on it.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Be Different (Fancy Pants)
    • Design Paper
    • Sticker Fundamentals
    • Ticket Roll
    • Ephemera Pack
Visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there please show the rest of the crew some crafty lovin! As always, we'd love for you to play along with us!! 


  1. What a fun card Donna love how you put it all together.

  2. Love your take on the challenge! The word soup is fun and holds your interest! Different, and a great job of crafting this project!

  3. Too many words? No way! What a fun card, and a great inspiration choice!

  4. Awesome card! I was pondering this challenge the other night and hubby suggested just splashing red ink on a card and saying it was for the book Helter Skelter. I got a good laugh out of it. Add a die cut word that reads "family." EEk!

  5. ohhhh i loved "where the wild things are" when i was little! i still love it now, actually! and your card is such a cool interpretation! awesome! ♥♥♥
