Save Some Trees
Happy New Year and welcome to our first challenge of 2012 at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we want you to save some trees and RE-PURPOSE PAPER TOWELS, TOILET PAPER OR COFFEE FILTERS. Instead of buying some designer paper for your project, go to your kitchen or bathroom and grab one of the above items and let's see how you can transform it and incorporate it into your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project.
This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
Our new Design Team is in place and everyone has worked hard to create some inspiration for you. If you want details on how they re-purposed the various items, click on their names to go directly to their blogs.
I made the fluffy flower out of a basket style coffee filter and some ink from Tsukineko. I used a tutorial that I found here. I worked on a butterfly made out of a paper towel and unfortunately it didn't look very pretty when I finished it so it landed in the circular file marked "G". Is it just me or does this card look like manic vintage?
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Inky Impressions - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
