I love taking apart old LOs and giving the photos an update; especially if I can combine two LOs into one. Space is at a premium around here!
I probably did these two LOs in 2009ish.
I saved the "curious" tiles from this LO.
I saved the trims, grommet, and background paper.
The hidden beauty of glue sticks. I'm glad that I used them once upon a time! It makes saving photos and crafting elements very easy. In fact, I'm thinking about a return to glue sticks for just my photos... just in case... The above piece is from MME and has survived to be used for another project.
I followed a sketch from Artful Delight. This is the second time I've used one of their LO sketches and I have been tremendously pleased with the results both times! Papers are from Stationery, Lovely, and Catching Fall by Lily Bee Design.
The rescued grommet and green ric rac. I used a variety of punches for the stars. All paper edges are inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I had a regular habit of scraplifting from LOs published in Memory Makers and Scrapbooks, Etc. I'm sure I saw this letter tile idea in Scrapbooks, Etc and I still like the concept. I used dye ink to stamp the letters, cut, and inked the edges. I fitted the cut out letters to thin pieces of chipboard and topped with Glossy Accents.
A punched dragonfly. Martha Stewart punch, I think. Would you believe I'm too lazy to walk 12 feet back to my table just to make sure? I can run eight miles and I'm training for a half marathon but I can't walk 12 feet.
This fun border is a leftover from a previous project; from a Spellbinders border die. I love leftovers. In fact, it's about time to eat leftovers! Cauliflower Casserole, which is based on a Tater Tot Casserole recipe. I replaced the tots with the white veggie...
What do you think of the update? What are you eating for dinner tonight?
