Sensational Trash to Vintage Treasure.

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and the
first monthly  TRASH TO VINTAGE
challenge.  We want you to make a project that
turns throw-away items into a vintage treasure.
 I made this card for my friend Sharon, she had a birthday at the end of August. For this card I recycled a box that I got some papers in. I used the box where the words are and in my flowers.

For this challenge, off-cuts or scraps in your craft room do not qualify
- you can use them as part of the project but they are not to be
considered the throw-away items.  Instead we want you to take
everyday items that you would normally throw in the garbage or in your
recycling bin and turn them into something fabulous.  This is the
time to do your part for the environment and show us how green you can
be. By the way, please include photos of your throw-away items before
they are transformed in your blog post so we can see what your treasure
looked like when it was still trash.

Please remember that we are a vintage challenge blog so your final
product must be of a vintage style.

We will be choosing a random winner who will receive a digi of our
choice and a winner's badge to display on her blog.  In addition,
the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week (or shall we
say Project of the Week) and the creator will receive a badge to display
on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Our designers have created some wonderful projects for your
inspiration.  To get details and see what their throw-away items
are, just click on their names and you will be taken directly to their

What a great card. I love the combination of the kraft colour of he box and the pops of colour in the paper and the flowers. I also love how you left the bend in the cardboard and didn't try to find a perfectly flat piece to stamp on.

Great use of your trash Heide....I'm sure Sharon will love this card. Beats buying kraft CS any day!
