Rockin' Recycling!

We've always said that some of the best and most creative cards in our Jingle Belles year get made during our Earth Day special, and this year is no exception. Here are three cards that made us especially proud to host this challenge:

...literally had this challenge in the bag --or rather ON the bag-- when she upcycled a little trinket-sized bag into a thing of beauty!

...reminds us that you don't need big focal images to recycle: she's punched shapes from a few different cards and giftwraps that were too pretty to toss and made them into something completely new and totally awesome! 

...trimmed the beautiful illustration and sentiment from a photo card, then built her own amazing greeting around it!


Many thanks to everyone who participated, and remember that even though we only have one official recycling-themed challenge per year, reusing pretty bits of paper rather than tossing them away is ALWAYS a great idea and leads to some really lovely cards! We'll be back at Midnight with a brand new challenge we hope will make you feel right at home!

I just KNEW that bag would come in handy one day - my policy of never throwing away anything useful looking is vindicated at last!

Thank you for the shout out on this one! This is one of my favorite challenges because it's the funnest way of cleaning that I can come up with!
