Do you sometimes wonder if the items you throw away can be used in your scrapbook lo? I would like to challenge all of you to create a layout that incorporates recycled items. In addition to the challenge I would love to start a critique group that helps give some constructive ideas on how to incorporate the recycled materials.

This challenge is just for fun and to see how creative you can be using unusual items. Examples might be cardboard, twist stems from shopping bags, clothing tags, plastic items.

Instrauctions:
1. submit your lo or altered project that incorporates at least one, but feel free to do more, recyled item.
The recycled item can be cut, painted, stained, embellished in any way you want to alter the appearance.
2. Los and project should be new but feel free to share older ones as well. This is all about learning to use non scrap/recylced materials.
3. When you post the lo/project, make sure to mention what the recycled material is that you used and what how you modified it to fit in with your lo.
4. Make sure to allow for public embedding
5. Leave comments on others los
6. you can join any time, no need to sign up

An example that I did recently to get you all started.

FYI - my little girl By Shells22 I used a Starbucks cup insulator

Love your layouts and admire your eye for seeing new uses for cast off items! I would love to give this a try...and will save it to my faves, in case I get inspired by some bit of something I might otherwise trash...

I have this now in my fav topics. I have one LO that I made a couple of months back where I used a cardboard package that looked like a sun. I'll try to link that just for sharing & make another one soon. I am a girl who keeps saving stuff. My dh says my pile keeps growing. Thats all okay.

I think I will crown you "The Queen of Green Scrapbooking" and I would be happy to contribute to your forum on how to recycle everyday items in this way. I have a box of things I've come across that I think would look nice on a LO. Mostly things that were just unique looking or that can make "stamps" because we know how expensive stamps can be.

I was looking through my gallery and ran across this lo I did over a year ago. When I looked at it I realized i had used a Back to School image that I got from an add. I had sprayed it with Krylon's make it acid free before adding it to the page. Just thought I would share it with you.

Here is my entry. The recycled part is the pink blossom on acetate. I had saved the packaging from a box of toiletries (xmas pressie) especially to use on a LO one day!!

The sad thing is I have held onto it for 2 and a half years just waiting for the right one!!

I also saved another acetate one thats covered in snowflakes but we don't get much snow around here I could be waiting many more years and accumulating more stuff in the meantime!!

Thankyou for letting me submit this LO xxx

ok, I have my entry complete. I used the ceters of plastic microwavable soup lids to create the large buttons. I cut the out edge of the lid away. The centers of the buttons already had whole in them for venting steam. I didn't try it on this lo but I think you could dye these different colors by using alcohol inks.

You did a great job on this. Is the flower the main one or the ghost one in the corner? The clear plastic really lends its self to all kinds of projects.

Going Green (actually mostly pink and brown). These are used and cleaned Frappuccino bottles that my dd and I covered in rose print tissue paper, using Aleene's Tacky Glue. The labels were made with one of those cheap thin plant pots that nurseries put plants in to sell them. By Scrapgal30

I was wondering that my lo is not in first page, did I do something wrong with embedding. Here is it one more time:

I don't know what is going on with the front page. I swear I have moved everyones los to show on the first page. I apologize if I messed up. I will take care of it. anyone else I missing?

On another note, I have changed the challenge to Ongoing rather the specific month. I encourage all of you to stick around and post more los and project you have made with the recycled materials. I have picked up some great ideas from everyone and would love to see what else your creative minds come up with. Thank you so much for your participation this past month. It has been awesome.

Oh, another question for the group.. Do you want me to leave all the lo from July on the front page and just keeping adding to it? The other thing we could start is for everyone to set up a "green album" in their gallery that has all of the los/projects and I can show the current month on the front page and a link to your green album. Thoughts?

Love that u are keeping it open. I also like it that we can have a green album. Since I didnt submit any LO in July, I dont know if my idea will be okay. The theme park challenge is an ongoing challenge & the host there has only the current challenges linked & she also has the albums linked to the front page so that others can just see the album instead of going through each challenge. I hope this has helped.

I'm glad to see that you would like to keep this going. maybe you can me spread the word about the challenge. When i run across los that use recycled things I try to leave the member a note to come check out the challenge.

I will get instructions to you about setting up the Green Album.

OK everyone, it is the end of July. Please get your Green Albums set up so i can link them to the from page and you can keep your collection of green pages there. I will get everyone a few days to get their green albums set up and then will remove the July los so we can get ready for August. I'm so glad that you enjoyed this challenge and I look forward to mext month. You all did a great job and have given me some great ideas.

Love this idea as an on-going challenge.....totally makes us scrappers look at our world of "trash" in a different way....there are so many "beautiful" embellies just laying around our homes! I will get busy on another LO!
