Well, maybe not. But they are re-purposed and recycled. I have to admit that one of my guilty indulgences is getting a latte at Starbucks. I esp love the pumpkin Spice seasonal latte so tend to go a little crazy from Sept 1 until it departs (in January this year - wahhh). But, this year, I got the bright idea to get something extra out of my expensive habit. I realized I could die-cut shapes from all those corrugated cardboard warmers instead of throwing them out and throwing more money on the cute corrugated embellies that have hit the stores. So, I can finally put that hand-held quickutz die-cutter and alphabet sets to good use. But, initially, I used some quickutz flower dies at archivers to cut out a bunch of flowers. The layout on the right was done there a few weeks ago and the flowers were colored with glimmer mist. I have absolutely no idea whose papers I used on it.
The LO on the left was finished last night. The c.c. flower on the left got stickled only- I wanted to pull some kraft color into that side. The ones on the right were colored with a Jenny Bowlin paint dabber and then stickled. The PP is was a scrap that someone gave me so I am not 100% sure who made it. The CS is Archivers. The little star embellies were from a clearance pack at Tues Morning from some unknown brand. The vellum start paper was bought so long ago that I have no earthly idea where I bought it much less who made it. The title is AC Thickers
BTW, I apologize for the pictures. Not only am I still trying to figure out the best way to take pics of layouts; but, the weather here is snowy, icy and overcast- making "natural light" photos impossible. After multiple attempts, I gave up on "good" photos and satisfied myself with "less bad" :P
