TOMIC #12 - recycle

It's time!!! It is Monday and you KNOW what that means - a new challenge at TOMIC!  This week at TOMIC is very special - we are celebrating the birthday of the Magnolia Ink Magazine - its two years! How amazing is that? And because the Magnolia Ink is printed on recycled paper, the challenge this week is to.... RECYCLE SOMETHING.  So here is my little project for this week:

And what did I recycle you might be wondering?  Here is it..... empty boxes from my kids snacks (yeah, I'm cheap, lol, I buy store brand snacks hahaha).  I adhered my patterened paper to the cardboard and then put it in my Cricut and cut out the birdcage shapes. I love recycling! And this was a good experiement to see how the Cricut went cutting out something with great detail on heavier card. It worked brilliantly!

All of the edges are inked with Walnut stain then stamped around each piece with "New Years Swirl" from the 2008 New Years Collection. The chipboard bird is painted in Distress Crackle paint. I had stitched the lace to create the little flower, then added a Prima pebble. The rub on is Kaisercraft. The white rose was a gift from my beautiful friend Jane and the deep pink flower at the bottom was a gift from my cousin.

The papers are Prima Botanical. This page of the album features the sentiment from the Sweet Rainbow Collection.  The leaf is by Magnolia. The glitter heart is Melissa Francis.  The Eifell Tower has been in my collection for so long I dont know where it came from... but it is so lovely and sparkly :) Love it!

Here is adorable Ballerina Tilda from the Fairytale collection 2010. The shabby flowers and pebble are Prima. The leave and berries are Magnolia and the pink hydrandea is Petaloo. The pearls are Flourish with a Bling.

So that was my effort of recycling this week! I had a ball putting this album together. It is loads of fun creating somethin other than a card sometimes.

All of the images are coloured with Copics. Oh, and here is a repeat of the first pic of the cover so I can give you the details.... Beautiful Tilda from the Butterfly Dreams collection and large Dragon fly doo hickey die. The taupe rose trim is from my gorgeous bloggy "sister" Louise :) As are the Prima Botanical papers. Thanks Hunny!  The roses are Wild Orchid Crafts.

I hope you like my little project as much as I liked creating it :)
