It is time for another challenge over at KLSNS! This week the challenge was hosted by Kelly and she asked us to "Go Green" and use recycled items on our project.
I decided to use a picture frame that was actually headed to Goodwill (silly me, why didn't I just take out what was inside of it and put it in my craft room in the first place?!?). Since the frame had a floral border, I thought Spring would be a good theme. I pulled out the CC Designs Sugarplums Spring kit which is a great deal ~ you get 9 of the adorable Sugarplum stamps, 2 accessory stamps and a set of Spring Sentiments for 25% off the retail price (available for a limited time). For this project, I chose the girl, the tree stump and the happy spring sentiment. The paper I used for the grass was recycled from a card that I previously made but did not ever see sending out, so instead of throwing it away, I re-purposed it. The twill came off of a present and the butterflies were cut out of some packaging from my daughter's make-up. The blue cardstock was sponged with white ink and then I added one layer of grass to it. The tree stump and mushroom were added with the second layer of grass and then finally the girl. I stamped the sentiment onto the twill ribbon and added that to the bottom. Since the frame was so decorative, I kept embellishments to a bare minimum.
Please join us this week, we'd love to see what you can recycle on your projects! I know the rest of the DT has some wonderful things to share with you, so take a peek at their blogs and leave them some love!
Kelly keeps adding new items to the store so hop on over there and take a peek!
Have a wonderful day!
