Recycling…..

When creating one thing that you should consider is the packaging that your products come in.  Here I wanted to share with you what I did with some packaging from the girls paperie.  I first decided that the “M” would look great with the pink background piece of the ribbon packaging.  I simply stuck the M on it and cut it out leaving some border around it.   Then as I continued creating the shape of the packaging kept calling my name and I knew I had to use it somehow!  Well, I simply turned it over and added some Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy to age it up a bit.  I then glued it to a journaling spot and then added the M piece to the opposite side and a fantastic new piece was easily created for my layout.  So, think outside the box or better yet, use the box, LOL.  The entire layout (except the green chip font) was created using items from the May Kit from “the girls loft” and if you haven’t purchased a kit from them I ask….what are you waiting for ;)
