This week we have another awesome challenge in store for you at Lasting Memories!! We are gonna trash those layouts!!! Nope, I don't mean throw them out!!! This week we are asking you to look around and use something you may otherwise consider trash. Get creative with this one.......maybe you use junk mail or wrapping paper or even product packaging. Once you start really looking at things around you , you will begin to see everything in a new light trust me! I know I drive my family nuts saving everything........product packaging, pringles cans.......lol. You name it I try to use it in some fashion! So this week we want you to try you hand at it!!!
This week is another sponsored week so we have a GREAT giveaway to go along with this challenge from our very own Elizabeth!! She has a wonderful ETSY shop so please check her out!!!! Look what she is generously offering one of our challenge entrants!! WOW!!!! Who doesn't love some Tim Holtz goodies!!!
Pagemaps.......I just LOVE this one!!!
For my layout I decided to get all girly again.....I'm actually having a lot of fun scrapping girl layouts!! This is a photo of 2 of my cousins........aren't they just beautiful????? Can you spot my trash???
All of the papers are from Fancy Pants "Its the little things" I used a scalloped circle punch from fiskars to fill in the middle of my banner and added some blingatude :)
I love how that turned out!! I did a little fussy cutting as well to some of the journal cards to create extra embellies for my layout
The lettering is Thickers from Dear Lizzie. And I used an entire pack of Prima flowers :) I love the pink and brown together and the gingham and the dots work really well with each other too!
So.....have you figured out what trashy element I used yet???? The prima packaging!!!! I fussy cut the doily pattern out of the plastic backing the flowers were adhered to. NEVER overlook the packaging as an option for embellies....some is so pretty it just begs to be used and even the ones that aren't beautiful can be used as a photo mat or made into tags when covered with pretty scraps. They also make awesome bases for mini albums!!!!
I didn't use the wonderful sketch from Pagemaps for this layout.....I went with this one from Scrapville and am entering it in their monthly challenge as well
I am also sharing at these awesome blogs :)
