Hi Girls! September 25th ALREADY! Can you believe it? Time sure flies when we're havin' fun stampin' & craftin' :) That means time for another PTI Blog Hop! This month Nichole challenged us to "Go Green"!
The focus for this month's PTI Blog Hop is to reuse & recycle portions of our newly arrived PTI order in an earth-friendly way! That means to reuse, repurpose or recycle packaging from our PTI package! For my "Go Green" card sketch layout, I found inspiration from this week's Card Positioning Sytems, CPS134 challenge.& over at Pile It On, Challenge #16 we were challenged to use punches :) Click on over to both the CPS & Pile It On sites to see soooo many gorgeous creations week after week! Here are my "Go Green" creations! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!
I stamped the PTI Everday Button Bits bird image, wing & the Hampton Art Go Green image on the PTI Thank You card that comes with every PTI shipment & from the label identifying the stamp set, then punched them out. I repeated this for ALL the punched flowers.
I cut apart the corrugated cardboard box that my shipment came in & using the Sizzix SU Top Note die, I cut the front & back of my purse!
I recycled the cellophane bag that my PTI twine was delivered in & popped in a pack of gum, tied it up with some ribbon & attached a coordinated tag with PTI twine. A tag paired with some ribbon, buttons & twine can spruce up just about ANYTHING!
I JUST had to use The Green Stack by DCWV!!!!! :)
