Find Joy in the Ordinary

Wednesday, May 20, 2020
This week at Little Red Wagon, we're reusing and recycling! Brenda is our hostess and she wants to see us using previously-used items on our projects. This is a fabulous time to be creative and take items that might be heading out the door and turning them into something wonderful!

The grey mats used on my card were salvaged from my uni's print shop. I was able to get a number of pieces of cardstock and paper that were otherwise going to be thrown in the recycle bin. I also used an old dictionary to cut some of my flowers. I used dies that I had also used for last week's creation - reusing in another sense!!

Please look through things that might be headed for the rubbish or recycling bins and use them on your creations. And please check out the rest of the Girlfriends' creations at Little Red Wagon!

I'm linking up my card in Simon Says Stamp's latest challenge - Recycle!

This is a beautiful card, Kate. Don't you love it when you find treasure like that for the taking (and the dies for reusing)!

I just made your card bigger and now appreciate the design even more (morning eyes are a bit fuzzy for me). I love the frame in the frame with that little bit of dictionary paper peeking out. What a wonderful tie in to your flowers. Brilliant!

Wonderful card, Kate! I love how many items you were able to "save"!

Beautiful card with great colors, Kate and great take with the re-use of the print paper.
