Recycled Packaging 12x12 LO - A Perfect Trip w/Your Memories Here!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are having a beautiful fall day like we are here in Oklahoma! Today I wanted to share with you a LO for Your Memories Here that is mostly made out of recycled (or upcycled) items & scraps. The photo was taken at the end of a weekend trip hubby & I went on recently & the rainbow was the perfect end to a perfect trip. I love using up my stash & I hate throwing anything away! I am big on "green" wherever & whenever you can, even in my crafting, & wanted to show you how easy it can be!

The base for this LO is entirely Prima packaging! It is the backing that came with a 12x12 transparency & I simply flipped it over, trimmed it to size, inked the edges & spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist & Glimmer Glam. This was my first time using the Glimmer Glam & I gotta say that I love it! It leaves a brighter, bolder color & shimmer that I really like. I also used some more Prima packaging for the background the Prima flowers & yellow Prima lace are on, and also edged it with some ink. The other recycled/upcycled item is the vintage dictionary page...which I thought was just perfect for this page with its definitions of thunder! Everything else is scraps from other projects, including that lovely Prima lace at the top of the page...really take a look at all your packaging & leftover scraps before tossing them out. Prima especially makes lovely reusable packaging & not only could you make a gorgeous project, you can feel good about it afterward!!

I hope I have inspired you to take a closer look at using some recycled/upcycled items in your crafty projects. I would love it if you hopped on over to the Your Memories Here DT blog & take a look around for some fab inspiration! All the Prima & Tattered Angels products used in my LO can be found HERE in the Your Memories Here Store. Make sure to check it out because there are some amazing new items & kits that are to die for, and at fab prices too!! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!

I am also entering my green LO into the following challenges! Wish me luck!!
