LLWWC#30 - Recycle It

Hello and welcome to another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!

It's Elena and I am your hostess for this week's challenge! Before I get to the challenge, I would like to thank everyone who participated in last week's LLWWC#29 - Pastel Colors Challenge. We were so happy to see your cards with LLLC stamps!

Now onto La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #30! Since March 17th is St.Patrick's Day, let's do a GO GREEN – RECYCLE IT Challenge. Let's save the world and do a recycle kind of a challenge. Here are some ideas:

- use a cereal box as a chipboard to create your own embellishment;
- use a lace or ribbon (or even buttons) from the old clothes that you don't wear;
- old newspaper or book page to make a paper flower (pretty popular in these days);
- instead of DP try wrapping paper or even wall papers;
- use a bubble wrapping paper as a "stamp" to create your own background paper:
- create a 3-D project by using an acetate package;
- use raffia;
- use an old non-expensive earring as a charm;

Here's what you need to do to participate:
IMPORTANT!! We have made a few changes!

1) Create a NEW card for the challenge. You are more than welcome to combine challenges!

2) Your project must have one of La-La Land Crafts stamps on it!! You are welcome to use any other stamps along with LLLC images, such as sentiments, background, etc.

If you do not have any of our stamps yet, you can start your collection by purchasing one or more of our new DIGI stamps! DIGI stamps are now available in our
online store.

3) Link your project to Mr. Linky below by Monday, March 22nd, 2010 at 11:59pm PST (GMT-8). Be sure to link directly to the blog or gallery post featuring your entry!
If you post your card on Splitcoaststampers, please use BOTH keywords LLLC and LLWWC30.

4) Create the link to this challenge (link back to us) in your blog or gallery post.

As always, the Top 3 will get to put this adorable button on their blog:

The winner of the challenge will receive a $10 CREDIT to spend in our online store!!!

  1. OH my goodness girls--these are all really FABULOUS!! LOVING them all!! I see a pattern with the old page/newspaper flowers, teehee--very cute! If I wouldda known that I wouldda tried something else! ;) But each card is so different and unique--LOVE THEM! Elena, your pirate LaLa is FANTASTIC! LOVE that old distressed look you gave and your knot is awesome! You'll have to give us a li'l tutorial on how you made that knot!! PLEEEEEASE???!!! *Ü*

  2. I had fun doing this challenge. Amazing what you can come up with using things you already have! Great designs from the DT!


  3. I made the flower by punching out circles from an old dictionary page and then scrunching them up like petals. I mounted this on a white flower that I had sprayed with glimmer mist. The butterfly is punched from a piece of velvet paper that I glimmer misted as well. I hope you like it!
