Diva Chick Haley

Here's my next layout for my run for the Design Team over at Urban Anthology. The challenge 3 was to Create an eco-friendly layout showcasing at least TWO “green” tips, techniques, and/or products. Get creative and really WOW us with your ability to repurpose, recycle, reuse, and reinvent!
Recycle: I have a lot of cardboard that I've saved from packaging from different things. Here I've used it on top of my cardstock by stitching it down instead of using adhesive. Also I used scraps materials from the felt to the pattern papers on this layout. By using up the larger scrap pieces of pp I didn't cut into a new sheet of pp wether it was older or newer. Reuse: A couple of years ago I bought MM Philadelphia Foam Stamps because they were on the rage. Once I got them I've only used them 3 times. So I pull them out of my closet and painted them up and stamped my title. Woohoo. I needed to spruce up my title by adding some bling flowers that I got in a RAK a couple of months ago. Repurpose: I took the felt scrap piece an cut out 5 half circles and then stitched them together by hand. Added a button that I tied some crochet thread through the holes and adhere with a pop dot.
