Recycle It




This fortnight it's all about recycling at Top Tip Tuesday where your lovely hostess, Carol, would like to see some aspect of recycling in your project. We are always thrilled that you choose to play along with us at TTT and we hope you are excited about recycling a previous project, an object lying around your house, or using up those scrap materials. That brings me to my tip-scraps are perfect for small projects like bookmarks, gift tags, ATC's and many other uses so don't throw them away. :D Another tip is to recycle packaging from products you purchase to use in your crafting. For more inspiration check out Carol's fabulous tutorial on the TTT blog.

For my gift tag I am using Beautiful Blocks-Life in Color digital stamp by Bugaboo Stamps. The rectangle shape of this image is perfect for gift tags and bookmarks. I added a tab by using a tab stamp from the WMS Vintage Labels 18 and fussy cutting it. I used royal blue ink for the tab and Prismacolor pencils to color my image. Kaisercraft aquamarine bling added to the stems adds some pizzazz and another pop of color. For the finishing touch I used up some scrap ribbon and trim in my stash and I printed my image on a recycled piece of paper.

We use living Artists for all of our CD's now and have recently shown our CD's on Create and Craft TV.
