Kraft It Up - April

The challenge at Kraft It Up is, in my humble opinion, a doozey this month ..

This month we want you to recycle some of that product packaging and use it on your layout, the only must have is that you use Kraft cardstock or Kraft patterned paper!

Um, I either throw out the packaging (which I guess, LOL, is the whole point of this challenge!!!) because I don't need/want it or I keep it because I need/want it. Not having bought anything new (well sort of) very recently, the packaging I had I wanted to keep not use!!! Then I remembered I had recently bought Teresa Collins' He Said She Said "He Said" collection and then I remembered this bit that comes at the front of the collections ..

I had packaging!!!

Love my guy

From the bottom section of my packaging I die-cut two Tim Holtz paper rosettes and punched out several photo corners which I used as arrows. I sooooo wish I had thought of doing this before. I can't tell you how many full sheets of 12x12 patterned paper I've cut into to make my own embellishments when all this time I could have simply used the packaging. You can be sure I'll be doing this again. Thanks for the inspiration Kraft It Up. Oh and if you'd like to give the challenge a go or you'd just like to see the creative and innovative ways the Creative Team have recycled their product packaging, you can check it all out HERE.
