Recyle It! (Click to View More Pix)

September's ATC theme was "Recyle", and although it was a challenge for many, the cards that were turned in for this month are just BREATHTAKING!

Designed by: Roberta M.
Her origami art are always so pretty. She recycled a paper bag to make the origami pot.

Designed by: Malia S.
Look at all the detail she put into this card:

Bird & Cage - Die cut from soda can
Branch - Looks like cardboard
Flowers & Butterflies - paper scraps

Designed by: Linda K.
Not only is her card beautiful, it's also useful!! She used DP that was made from 70% recycled paper. The flowers are paper clips that can be removed and "re-used". So clever!!

How cute are these foil flowers?

Everything on Leslie's ATC is recycled!

Base: Packaging from cardstock paper pack.
Flower: The netting from a cantelope.
Twill: Packaging from doggie treats

So creative!

Grace made her own paper out of scraps & newspaper - wow! She also re-purposed items from old cards & projects.

Kelly works as a bartender and the tag you see in the center is from a Wine Bottle. This one is simply gorjuss!

Designed by: Diane S.
So clever, Diane took a business envelope from the mail and re-used the acetate window. You can't tell from the photo, but the embossed flowers have a nice glimmer to them. So pretty!

This pretty ATC is made out of re-purposed cork board as the base. Scraps were used to make the musical scroll and fan.

Designed by: Dena J.
I'm sure we are all familiar with the Starbucks Logo! I love the coffee bean stamp she used on the background.

Designed by: Cindy G.
Look at the clever way Cindy used wax paper to make a shaker. Starburst candy wrapper & newspaper clippings were also integrated. Love it!

Designed by: Calinda G.
Calinda made 4 different ATC cards. Each card came in their own recycled envelope and all were placed in a cute brown paper bag that she turned into a little tote. Truly amazing!

This first one, she used shrink art to make the Hanafuda cards. And the background was an old travel brochure.

This one is made up of Tea Box packages, old bottle caps, soda tabs and ribbon scraps.

This adorable tree was made up of paper scraps.

Designed by: Carol D.
Such a cute ATC by Carol. Her blue background is a plastic bag. Hello Kitty's dress & bow was made from the packaging we used to package our bottle caps. Love it!
