Bling it!

Hi everyone, Donna here to show you how to recycle and reuse in scrapbooking. If your like me, I get a ton of greeting cards, and it seems more and more they have embellishments on. I guess my family knows how much I love scrapbooking, so it seems to me they deliberately give me a card with some kind of embellishment on that I can repurpose to my layouts. Here are an example of a card I received recently. Instead of just tossing the card out, I took off the embellishment and ribbon and repurposed it on my layout below. I  also did this for a challenge over at Bird is the Word blog


The ribbons I cut in half and put it down from my rosette and the hanging part with the sequin, I attached it to the rosette added another embellishment to cover the plastic ring and topped it off with bling from Want2Scrap.
