It's Time for another Challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays!
This week's challenge is "Recycle."
Our Challenge Sponsor is Cutting Cafe.
After moving to a new land (St. Louis area lol) near more of our family those family members turned me on to recycling. I have always wanted to "recycle" but never had the resources near me. We now have 2 facilities with in 20 minutes (I live in the country) so my Son's Deedee(his great grandpa) comes and picks him up once a week to go to the "Cycle Pace." Dominic is my 2 year old amazing son who loves his Deedee very much and loves to go for rides with him!
Ever since I started recycling I have found I have SOOOOOO! much less trash!! I couldn't not believe how much I can recycle. I do find it frustrating how many plastics are not recyclable but for the most part nearly all of the items we use are. I feel so great recycling and my trash man appreciates it as well!
We have a little spot reserved in the kitchen for the Recycle Tote and Box for cardboard. I have been staring at this spot for weeks thinking I need to make a sign for the tote or one for the wall to help decorate my very plain white kitchen walls. I sat down with my Super cut Recycling Sheet from The Cutting Cafe and went to town making a "Shelli" friendly recycling sign. I personally think it turned out super Cute!!
Project How To's:
Sentiments- I cut these out the size I wanted and then used my colored pencils to do an outline. I blended these outlines to give them an "inked" look
Digi- The Restore, Replenish circle is from The Cutting Cafe. It says Earth Day in the middle. I found a super cute little Earth Day FREE digi from MelonHeadz Illustrating. I re-sized it to fit in the middle of the Restore Circle, colored it to coordinate with the color scheme and attached it to the circle.
Jewels- The Green Jewels on the Recycle background paper blended in too well. I cut little squares of brown paper to add a little color pop! This brought out the green jewels very nicely.
