Scrap Tiffany Recycled Blog Hop April 13-14

For this we used the theme RECYCLED ITEM.

Be sure to start at the link above.

I had a used brown paper bag. My friends Birthday was coming up and it

was perfect for her because she is like me and loves crafts. She also

would appreciate the fact that it was homemade and realize the

time that went into it and that it was personalized.

I don't use my cricut often enough so I thought it would be fun

to get it out and use up some of those smaller pieces of scrap.

I gathered up some ribbon pieces, smaller piece of border flowers

that were left over and a piece of chipboard.

The only bigger piece of cardstock needed was for the

Happy Birthday cut out Sentiment.

I started with a Tattered Angel's Glimmer Misting of

many colours. After cutting all the cricut pieces from the Celebrations Cartridge and gluing

them in place I used the ribbons to cascade the balloons and add the chipboard tag.

I then added the other sentiment "celebrate" and the floral border accent.

I would like you to follow me (one ballot) and leave a comment(one ballot). This will give you

2 ballots to a random draw for a prize...

a punch of your choice from

Prize posting will be done on Friday the 15th on my blog.

From here next stop is at Krischelle's

Great idea Bev. I always think with off the page projects that it's best to make something that you're going to use soon. More incentive to finish it!
