Welcome to the EcoScrapbooking eBook Launch Party! You may have arrived from Deeply Rooted Life.
I am sharing an additional eco-friendly scrapbooking tip today. I actually have two. My first tip is using found items (or trash). That orange paper below is a piece of tissue paper that I got in a gift. I often re-use tissue paper in gifts, but really have enough for that purpose, so no I hold onto those pieces that are interesting in some way (hello, orange!).
I used a glue stick to adhere it and a brayer to smoothe it out. The coolest part is that you can still see the pattern behind it.
Here is the completed layout. The ribbon on your left was also a found item. I have no idea where it came from, but I know I did not buy it.
My second tip is use brads to adhere items. I stuck the brad through the felt star and then stuck the whole thing through the paper instead of using and adhesive.
Here’s is a bonus tip:
Use your stash and limit new purchases!
That background paper is from 2010. I have really been digging into my stash and been doing a great job at limiting new purchases to items I need (more adhesive), compared to items I want. I have enough pretty things to last me for years, so limiting new purchases of pretty things is pretty important to me right now.
