Scrap Tiffany's REcycle Blog Hop is finally here! I knew the instance I saw the post on Scrap Tiffany that this is one Blog Hop I HAD to take part. My middle name is 'REcycle!!!'
I always love coming up with neat little ways to recycle items into fabulous elements for my projects. If you happen to stop here first make sure to start your Blog Hop at ScrapTiffany.com and follow the links from there.
Ok... what did I do? Well I had some old scrap catalogues and some packaging that I had kept from Jenni Bowlin and Melissa Frances. So I just love the Jenni Bowlin catalogue as it was cute little pictures of all her fabulous bingo cards, journaling spots, samples of paper and they are all printed on cardstock! The Melissa Frances catalogue is a glossy one but still had lots of samples of all her beautiful papers. So on a good TV night (Vampire Diaries) I grabbed my catalogues, scissors, my ultimate favourite Martha Stewart butterfly punch, my circle and scalloped punches and I go to town. I punch, cut and punch some more. Then, when I have a little container full I create little embellishments for futur use. I try to colour cordinate them with either scraps of ribbon or other little elements that I keep (as I keep EVERYTHING!). I just love to put together little kits for futur projects with all items coordinating... So here are some samples....
House was made with a scrap square from catalogue and some corrugated cardboard painted white. Lots of stiches, some Jenni Bowlin pieces (HOME, tickets, journaling spot, two centre pattern papers).
The frames were made from corugated cardboard from a box and the little elements were all from Jenni Bowlin catalogue. Little paint, glitter and stiching with the machine...
These two pieces were made from the Jenni Bowlin catalogue (HOME, blue small journaling spots, the big black journaling spot, butterflies, and pattern paper on bottom element)
Every month I am so lucky to get the Basic Grey Page of the Month kit and I just love BG packaging. I always carefully take my buttons, brads or other elements out of package and keep the packaging for journaling tags, etc. To the Kioshi line is too cute. Used it on my last project for Crop Suey and thought I could use it to make a cute journaling block. So I cut out some of the details that had the text and then also used another package (same pattern) and cut them into different sizes for my next project. I glued them randomly and then stiched the grid over the scraps of paper. On the journaling spot I also used some punched out details from my Melissa Frances catalogue and some Jenni Bowlin pieces too.
