Recycle it with a pop of green!

Hi there! This week we have a super duper fun challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our talented Kim hosts the challenge this week and her theme is recyling! So you have to create a project using something you have salvaged from somewhere else. You can use any part of an old package, or pages of an old book, or whatever you can reuse from something you are about to throw away. Ahh, and don't forget the color green! But anyway, for more details go to Our Creative Corner blog and check out all the beautiful creations our DT has prepared to inspire you! I really love them all.

It is amazing how many things you can create out of something you consider trash. I had a lot of fun creating my card. I used a page from an old book called The Baby Sitters Club. My daughters used to read these books when they were younger, and they have yellowish pages already but what I really like is that they have a natural vintage look. Then I used the flap of some soap boxes which I kept because of the nice design on them. The flower was made out of a clear plastic box lid, which I ran through the Big Shot to cut it in that shape. I also had an old school paper from which I cut out the tag. As you can see, there are a lot of things in my stash which I've been keeping for a long time because there was something in them that I liked and I kept for future uses. So this challenge is perfect to use those materials!

Thanks a lot Kim for this creative and green challenge.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Hi Lili! I just wanted to drop in and tell you how much I love your project using recycled items. You've really gone to town with this theme and your finished card is amazing! Old book pages, plastic packaging - I hoard these things as well :) So glad you got to use them

  2. Hello Lili
    I love this cornucopia of recycled bits and pieces on your card; the earth tones along with your splatter of Green give off a natural feel. I do like it very much.

  3. This is just plain awesome, Lili! I just love all the bits and pieces of past treasures that you have included in this delightful card. Your ripped edges and ink splotches are so appealing to my eye. Sensational take on this week's recycling challenge!

    Hope you are staying inside and dry this messy weekend!


  4. Lili, what a fabulously show-cased collection of past treasures! and I love the distressed edges! The various pops of green really do work! and pull this gorgeously crafted card together!
