2004 LO



This lo was published in SNR April 2010 issue

This lo was one of TOP 3 on Prairie fairy use tissue challenge- thanks!!

Scrapbooking today is kind of trends or fashions more than it was a decade ago (also I am a scrapper much less)- so we need to go with these trends and this lo was made with some of them
Trend #1- recycling: I used this 1/2 old plate placement my DH decided to add to the garbage ..I even took a part to the front too. I also used this bread brown bag with celophane window on it " as is" for my mattingp also I do use deacidation
Trend #2- make your own flowers- I did great one from old tissue paper- free hand cut of scalloped circles in 3 sizes and a brad(It's kind of another trend- to use eyelets and brads we bought and never use)
Trend #3- recession is still here -so we try to find some cheap items- the paper flowers I used here were half of home Israeli store pack and their cost is half of 2.5 $ as I still have half of them for another work- so it is really cheap also it's not Prima(we are talking 1.25 USA $ for all these flowers on this lo)

They were separate- but I did the branch by myself
Trend #4- use ruffles.. As I hate to sew I just used this orange sticky tape and did them in a second from Michaels ribbon (see trend#3) (Don't really like ruffles- but we are talking about trends here, not my taste in clothing)
Trend #5-use twine- yarn etc- kind of recycling too- I got this one with this huge yarn ball with small presents inside and it never ends.
Trend#6- silluettes- I don't like it , but when the photo is great and the background is awful it works - and it's a kind of retro ..
The other trends are blings(I used them to cover the red color of Pink Pasley paper as I didn't want this red to be seen) I also added some to cover some pen signs as I tried to doodle in the corner and didn't like it after all.
Another trendy item is fabric- so this one was genuine Prima tag , but you can use the old skirt pocket too.
And finaly the last- use your scraps even if these were real leftovers. The circle I used for the fabric tag was Colluzzle " mis-cut"- but I kept it and here it is- great color combo for my new lo
And now for the challenges:
Brown bag for Scrap outside the box

Wings for Magical crafts (birds)

Colors for ECP

Inspiration for Etsy- wood ( the placement ) and all my blings
Inspiration - from 3 mini key blings for Paper jewels

Tissue paper flower for Prairie fairy- not sure about lo and not a card- but what can it be? It is a great tissue flower after all
Sketch #188 for Pamela's world
Anything goes for Paper cutz
Inspiration- girls, many girls in row- for Scrap the art
Go green- recycle- for Candy shoppe
Clear (acetate window in my paper bag and all my blings) for Hidden potential

Flowers for Challenge up your life
Home made flower for Crafty creations
