Trash to Vintage Treasure Challenge!

Today is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and it is also the first of the month so that means it is time for another TRASH TO VINTAGE TREASURE challenge. Your vintage card or other paper-crafted project must start with or include one or more items that you would normally throw away. This does not mean paper scraps in your stash but you can use them in addition to your recycled or re-purposed item. Please make sure you add a photo to your blog post of the throw-away item(s) you have used so we can see how your creativity began.

Here is my "treasure" this week:
Coaster Christmas Ornament
I used a vintage image from Magic Moonlight and did a little cropping in Photoshop so I could use just the circular greeting.

and here is the "trash" I used to create my ornament:

Whenever we go out to eat, I always ask everyone to save their coasters.  I've accrued a nice little collection, sure beats buying the chipboard!  These are the perfect size to decorate for Christmas ornaments.  I had our card ministry this past Thursday and we decided to make these ornament for our shut-ins and those who receive communion in nursing homes from our church.

We will be choosing a random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and the Design Team will select a Card of the Week.

Our designers have been digging through their recycling bins and transformed some great items into wonderful treasures for your inspiration. To get more details and see what they used, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate your comments and all your support!
