Paper Playtime Challenge #64 ~ Recycle!

Good Monday morning, my friends, and


Today is the first Monday of the month and that means a new Cricut Creations challenge over at Paper Playtime.  Our theme for the next two weeks is to use something recycled on your project along with your Cricut.  Our sponsor is my fellow design team member Maria from Joyful Stamper with a SEI 6 x 6 "Sunny Days" paper pad.  Here is what I made:

My recycled item is the gift bag.  It had been in my stash for a long time, I gave it to my Mom, who gave it back to me.   I know I would have used it again even plain but this time I gave it a little pizazz and will make a matching card for a gift for a special girlfriend.  All card stock for the gift bag was from Recollections.  Bling, flowers and stickles were from my inventory.  I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to cut out the background shape at 5".  The silhouette image and "Chic" are from Forever Young Cricut cartridge cut at 6" and 1".  What a cute way to take a plain gift bag and make it sparkle.

Thank you for coming to visit me today.  Please visit Paper Playtime to see what the other designers have created for this challenge as well and come play along.  And, on a personal note, I have been with the Paper Playtime Design Team for a year now and have enjoyed every minute of it.  Thanks to Janis who runs it and gave me a chance for my first design team.

Until next time,
