Reduce, re-use...

...and re-purpose!

Since we're actually living in a time of financial chrisis, not everyone can afford to shop for new stuff aaaaaaaall the time (and even if you can, you could actually want to use your money for other things, after all) so I am gonna take this time and blogpost to push the concept of recycling the things you've already got!
To mix the old with the new, to re-purpose what you boung a long time ago or to actually use things not intended for scrapbooking!

For this LO, I just used my "recycling". The papers are scpars, the title is built from what was left on sticker-sheets, the flowery tag is from a top I once bought (I always save pretty tags), the Prima packaging is just too useful & beautiful to be considered trash and the lace was given to me by a friend, a while back.

Best of all?
I had a LOOOOT of fun making this LO - and I really like the outcome!

Would you like to know how I made it?
Hop over to A Daily Inspiration's blog for a step by step-guide. :)

I've been doing the same thing! I've been using my packaging for my mini albums! And old book pages! I've made 2 new minis for under 25 bux! As Christmas gifts.

Zarah you put me to shame! I have tons of those prima packaging and have not been able to utilize a single one! Yet you easily created a beautiful layout with it! Gorgeous my friend!!
