Recycle It… With a Pop of Green!

Another really great challenge this week at Our Creative Corner.

So, what did I recycle?
Well, I had an old tin that originally had some yummy chai tea in it, and I didn’t want to throw away the tin once the tea had been used, but didn’t quite know what to do with it.  But it has had a makeover and now holds my paper clips!
So the tin has been recycled for a new use, and I have used some denim from the pair of my son’s old jeans that I started cutting up a few weeks ago!
Actually I think I have also “recycled” some of the recent challenges as well 🙂 – last week’s challenge was to use some office supplies (check – there is a paper clip on the lid), and the previous week was to use denim (check).
I have also used the very yummy Twitterpated patterned papers, and a tiny bit of the new Comfort Cafe patterned papers, just poking out from under the denim.  And of course, those butterflies… the top two layers use the Beautiful Wings Embosslits, and the larger blue butterfly is the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, through the Big Shot.
Check out what the rest of the Design Team have made for this challenge, and if you have any questions about this project, feel free to send me an email.
Happy stamping!

Our Creative Corner Colour Challenge

Well, here it is!  My very first Design Team post with Our Creative Corner!
Sharon Wheet over at Designs by Sharon has set this week’s challenge, which is:
Create a paper craft item and use the challenge colors:  Navy, Pink, and whatever other color you decide.  You pick the missing color, any color; Kraft, Yellow, River Rock, Gray, Metallic, etc.  (Neutrals don’t count: black, white, cream, or brown).

For my card, I have used the colour Pool Party (one of my all time favourites), with Navy and Pink, and I love the way these colours go together.  I have also used the stripes on the containers in the photo for inspiration.

You can check out what the rest of the very talented team have created here.  And I hope you join us with a creation of your own.
Happy stamping!
