MCT ~ Thrifty Thursday

Today is Thrifty Thursday over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team. This is when we use scraps, leftovers, recyclables for your projects today. I think this segment is so fun to do! Not only do we use our scraps, most of the papers I used are scraps, but we get to use things that seem to lay around our homes for too long. For example this gift bag. I am sure this is a few years old and has been used once! So I thought why not use it and take it from a dull bag to something a little more!
Now I must say I am not happy with it just by itself but with the tag I made on Tuesday, click here, I am a little more comfortable with the results. I LOVE to recycle when I can and use any and all paper scraps. I seem to never run out of either in my house! I save everything ~ insert huge sigh.
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI, Jillibean and Authentique
Ink ~ Archival
Recollection rhinestones
My tag from Tuesday. Click here for all the details.
Both projects together.
Thanks for stopping by and always being so sweet! Don't forget starting next week, Emma and the design team will be sharing the new release!! You aren't going to want to miss this ~ trust me!
We also have a Designer Challenge still going on. Click here for all the details.

  2. OH WOW what a stunning bag and tag You really rocked your scraps. I do love the paper and all of your outstanding cute, clever and creative ways you used Miss Emma's goodies. I so agree with you re: your take on the bag by itself but hey it's like fashion the outfit is kinda cool but with the accessories it's a runway hit. YOU so ROCK!!

People in the family make fun of me for saving papers...they mention me when ripping wrapping papers and throwing them out...I have been known to retrieve some that is most pretty or interesting :D Shhh! I also have a good supply of plastic and chipboard. Beautiful job on your tag and card! They look great together and by themselves.
