Reuse, Reduce, Recycle Challenge!

Morning guys! First up I just wanted to let you know that the new kits are up and they are flying! So if you are wanting one I would run to the store and grab them because they will be gone quick!

Ok, on to the next challenge! Tessa Ann Watte came up with this fantastic idea for a fun and thought provoking challenge. How much stuff do we just throw away? I know it's not fun to think about, but we toss out a lot that can be re-purposed. So this challenge is all about taking something you would normally throw away and incorporating it into your project! This is running from today through Oct. 3rd. And here are our examples and what we reused!
Have fun with this one!!

Noel - used a 14x14 piece of packing cardboard and some hot wheels packaging

Jana-reused Daisy D's packaging as an accent piece

Tessa Ann - used the backing from a package of Making Memories red felt alphas (as seen in title) for a layer in her design

Michelle - I used the packaging from the kit (corrugated cardboard) and some clear packaging from some embellishments for the stars. I just used a star punch on the packaging and wah-lah clear stars!

Greta- i used the packaging that the Elsie rub on's came on to make a mini to keep in my purse to jot down notes...

Michele - used the negative space of chipboard hearts as little windows for pictures, embellies, and journaling. So clever!

Virginia - made a mini frame out of Heidi Swapp embellishment packaging & the Homeroom kit. She added a magnet on the back to use as a frame to hang on her fridge! How cute!

Winner and some news!

Thank you all for participating in the School Days challenge! It was so fun to see shots of you, your kids and other family for this one! I had a tough time choosing a winner, but I think this very cute little "first days" coaster album is a unique and inspiring choice. HOW ADORABLE IS THIS!? I believe it was submitted by Nathalie. Please email me (noel@noelmignon.com) so I can get your GC out to you! Congratulations!!

Now.... I wanted to give you guys some sneak peeks of the kit's I will have coming out tomorrow! This one is called Blue Skies

And this is Ghost Story!

Set your reminders because I am going to offer some freebies if you order these before midnight on Tuesday. If you order one kit you will get a "mystery" gift. It could be paper, a stamp, stickles, a sheet of grungboard, all kinds of good things. And if you order BOTH kits you will get 3 mystery gifts! So send me an email (noel@noelmignon.com) to be signed up for the newsletter so you are among the first to hear when they are released!
I also wanted to let you know that I will be holding a BIG, HUGE, FANTASTIC challenge in the next few weeks. it will be to celebrate my 1 year anniversary in the kit making field....woohoo! And to celebrate I will be hosting a "Use your Kit" challenge. This is the first time I will be requiring that anyone use products sold from the store. In order to get the GIGANTIC prize, with a MSRP of over $600, you will need to skedaddle over and pick up a NoelMignon.com kit or 2. I have a ton on sale, also I have the 2 new ones out on Monday, or use up your stash. You will be required to use only products from the kit, or combination of kits, for your entire project. So stock up! there are still deals to be had. I wanted to make sure I gave you all a heads up so you could get your order in to participate. :)
HERE'S THE PRIZE!!! This is starting on Oct. 6th, so mark your calenders!

Hope you are excited about the things coming up! :)

The "School Days" challenge!

OK guys, so as hard as it may be to believe school is back in session. Wow, my summer flew by! Anyway, I was thinking my school photo stash is pretty huge and in need of scrapping. So let's do a school days challenge this time around! Get to scrapping those first day photos, graduation pics, or the dreaded 9th grade head shot when your skin was "oh so clear" and your hairstyle was "rad"!
This is running from today through the 19th. I will be picking a winner who will be getting a $10 GC to the shop....so enter as many as you want! Be sure to include your link in the comments section or just link directly to the slide to make it easier.
Oh....and for your enjoyment.... :) Virginia found this way fun website called Yearbook Yourself, where you can upload a photo of your current self and you can transport back in time and have the hairstyle and clothing of several decades, all the way back to the 1950's. So if you are low on photos, or just want a way cool LO of yourself with a kickin' wig, go "Yearbook Yourself". Michele Kovack was super brave and did the "70's babe" LO in the slide show, which is "far out"!
Enjoy our glorious head shot gallery of hairstyles gone by! BWWWAAAHHAHAHAHAAA!!
