These are my entries for the Holiday Crafters Challenge at the Paper Zone!








I made the mini scrapbook out of disposable coffee cups & the card out of a file folder. I try to use items that would otherwise be tossed or recycled! :) The winner gets a $35 gift card to the Paper Zone. This would be great to put twards my scrapbook suplies for the mini books I'm selling! :) We shall see...

I'm linking up w/these parties...

You did an amazing job! I really like the curve of the first one (I guess from the coffee cups). Also the playing cards on the doily are just perfect! I hope you win!! Thanks for sharing at Holiday Hookup!

Great use of recycling products! Those are my favorite kinds of projects. I'm really loving the file folder card. Thank you so much for linking up to Homemade Christmas!! :)

Thanks for checking out my mini album made from an Altoid tin. Your mini album from a disposable coffee cup is great! I'm your newest follower - always looking for great inspiration!

Hi Holly & welcome! Thanks for following me back! :) You're welcome for the star link, I was just in awe over it! Amazing! :) Some people are too talented for thier own good!

I LOVE that coffee cup book. that's way cool. I'm inspired. There 's so much wasted in the N American coffee scene, it's incredible.

Now we have to convert everyone into scrapbook artists... ha ha...

Anyhow, THANK YOU for contributing it to our DIY CRAFT TUTORIAL linky party over on our site. There's a new party tomorrow and in the meanwhile, I'm going to feature you.

So, hop on over to our blog tomorrow and come get both your 'I'm Featured'- Badge for your site, and do link up any other tutorial for a (hopefully) equally creative project...

See you then.

Rose, thanks so much for your compliments & for featuring me!! That's awesome & exciting! :) I look forward to seeing it featured tomorrow! :) Thanks for inviting me to post again, yes, I have another tutorial in mind to post tomorrow. I try to reuse items instead of tossing them for my scrapbooks & cards. :)

Cute project! Love this idea!

Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites last week. Hope to see you again this week. Also, I'd like to invite you to come by next Thursday for my Holly Bloggy Christmas Recipe Party!

Chrystie said...

Really cute necklace! Thanks for checking me out recently at http://pocketfullofposies6.blogspot.com/ Your comment brought me to your blog! Cute stuff! I'm your newest follower! :)

Naturally Me Creations said...

Hi! Tnx for linking to my party again! :) You make albums from the strangest things, how interesting! :) And they're so pretty too, you almost don't want to cover up the page with a photo, hehe.

Hi Naturally Me Creations..
I like to keep good blog relationships! :) I'm glad to link up to your party again! :) I hope to have another linky party once I find time to sit & figure out how to make buttons to grab for my blog. Thanks for your e-mail on how to make a button, I have yet to try it. I hope to this weekend!!! :) It's intimidating! I would comment on your blog, but for some reason, (that I don't know how to fix) I can only write on blogs that have the pop up window response, including mine. I had to change mine to the pop up window, just so I could respond to people! Not sure why that matters?? But, I can only write on the blogs window that pop up, annoying! There's so many great things I'd like to comment on, but can't! boo!

It can be intimidating, i feel so chuffed with myself after figuring out some mysterious bloggy feature, hehehe! Still, let me know if you get stuck, i'll try to help!
And boo indeed about the commenting thing...how weird! :/
