Here is my submission for this weeks Magnolia Challenge Blog. The task this week is to use "recycled" items. This week was good for me... i had plenty of ideas :-) infact the little holder to give stamped image as a gift was my first idea to recycle the cardboard or Kellogsbox for the cover. For this fotoalbum i was not really sure if it would work for the challenge so i asked Donna cause my items are not really obviously.. and i am sure you know what i mean. :-) and she said it's okay. This project uses a wooden stick from the kitchen (you know the one you use in summer to make meat and veggies on the bbq) in german the name for is "Schaschlik-Spiess" and a old elastic hairband that was too streched out to use with my hair. You can see a better pic of these items on the bottom of all the picutures and i will post a tutorial on how to make this album in a seperate post - this would be otherwise to many pics.
If you like visit tomorrow my blog again and i can show you a card using a recycled item from my husbands workshop. i made it for Bea's sketch Ismaki challenge and the Magnolia Design Challenge Blog but now since you can win a prize this week i can not link a second project. The prize is ALL for you girls!!! :-)
This litte photoalbum uses half of a Stampin up "Simply Scrapping Kit" and some Palette O' Prints Designer Paper plus coordinating Stampin up CS. Decoration tip: you could also attach to the bamboo spine lots of different colors of ribbon to hide the stick and to make it more "girly" - i could not do that cause otherwise you could not see my recycled items.
