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!

I added mine to the slide. it is a mini-swatch book made with basic grey collection sheet and flat cardboard packaging (like is added in with paper for sturdiness).
