Lifting with a RePurpose
I am hostessing a Scraplift-A-Thon for the next 6 weeks over at Fiskateers and decided to work a little repurposing into my lift. Please look for our thread there at http://fiskateers.com and you can see the lovely lady we lifted. If you are still not signed up to be a Fiskateer then you are missing out on a great environment of wonderful, enthusiastic and extremely loving crafters. Come on and join and tell them Groovy sent you!
Back to this lift!
Here is my layout all Groovyfied and some repurposing to boot. See the little "journaling card"? It is actually packaging from some of my favorite Prima flowers. Do you see the little birdies up top? One of them is chipboard and the other? Well it is the backing from the pink bird. Since there was not self adhesive on this chipboard bird I just removed that and made it into a friend for birdie number one, which is a product from the Colorbok RipeBerry Collection :)
Since I like to give props to Fiskars I will let you know that I used some of my favorite Fiskars tools: Apron Lace Border Punch, Fingertip Craft Knife, Don't Leave Me Hanging Squeeze Punch, Scallop Sentiment Border Punch and added in some Heidi Grace items from the Beloved line, and I do Love them! You will too if you have not tried them. Take your Michael's coupon down and get you an awesome punch!!! You will not regret it, seriously.
