Recycled Project

Before and After
Q-Tip Holder

Our theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge #98 is "Altered or Recycled".
I have a Vanity table in my bedroom and thought this holder would look good on it!

Craft Details
Very easy! I created the plaid paper digitally in Corel. I added another layer of the image "Morning Glory Vine" from Pattie's Creations. I added a white outer glow to the image and composed it onto the plaid background. That's it! I cut the size I needed and adhered to the container after the original label was removed.

Shades of Purple
Shades of Red

You guessed it! Our theme at Pattie's Creation Challenge #97 is Monochromatic. You need shades of one color, but as a bonus you are allowed to use black, white, and skin tones if needed. This image is perfect for Monochromatic tones!

Card Details
- base is a white card stock
- next is a digitally composed layer of a border, Plaid DP, image panel has texture in the purple one and musical notes in the red, border strips, Image "3 Christmas Ornaments" from Pattie's Creations, glitter glue at the bow centers, and finally a digital sentiment.

No, No, No Cards!

That's it, anything but a card is the theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge #92. I had some extra apothecary jars hanging around, so I filled it with my Mini Maple Walnut Chocolate Chip Biscotti! What's great about this, it's Low Carb and Sugar-Free! I brought some to a Kentucky Derby Party at our nephew and niece's house, and it went over really big! I'm thrilled when a recipe of mine that fits my lifestyle, works for 'regular' people. What I mean is they don't follow a low carb lifestyle.

Creation Details
- designer paper for the band around the jar
- designer paper die-cut with scalloped circle
- Image 'Chocolate Chip Cookie Jar' also die-cut with scalloped circle
