Week 45 'Rags To Riches'

Good Morning

It is time for me - Mummylade - to host my first challenge here at Allsorts and I am of course a bit nervous :) I guess some of you know that my absolute passion is to alter things around the house so what better challenge than to alter or recycle something. Change a cereal box to a piece of art, cut a piece from an old shirt and use on a card, punch a soda can and make charms, the possibilities are endless. I'm a vintage kinda gal so as a prize this we have a vintage kit for you from my own local craft shop - Scrapbooking4you.

Here is some inspiration for you from the design team:







(M&S foil dish, old book, kitchen foil and embellies off a wedding invitiation)

I read the challenge and thought, oh no, I can't do that but I am blown away by the inspiration from the DT this week and will endeavour to have a go. They are all fab. Marianne x

I love your first challenge, Mummylade! I'm a "saver" myself, and a big fan of using all kind of stuff in my papercrafting! And the DT has made so many beautiful things!
Hugs, Randi ;)

Gorgeous stuff everyone and I really enjoyed this as it gave me the chance to use something that had been hanging around for a while!

suezie said...

I love the samples. Couldn't resist playing along since I'd just altered up a picture frame

Shelley said...

I just found your blog and I'm just blown away by the DT inspiration and the creativity of your challenges. I am an avid re-purposer in all my layouts and cards so this was a fun first project for me.

Tammy said...

What a great great challenge...congrats!

Julie said...

Have only just heard of this challenge and as I'd altered a cocktail stick and some felt to utilise in this card I thought I'd enter. Will do it more indepth next time x

Zoechaos said...

Perfect challenge for things going on here at the moment had to add a second piece!

Kat said...

Great challenge and the DT have made some great projects. I know mine is too late but I just thought I'd let you see it. I knew it was a mistake to do so much housework before I started any crafting. Then I had to go to work!
