Recycle.. Reuse.. Repurpose.. The Challenge Begins....

With the month of September upon us I know that I start to get restless... My hand start to itch to reorganise and declutter our house. This happens every year for me and that's how I know that Spring in here. I started a little early with my decluttering this year however. I couldn't resist that itch and started yesterday afternoon reorganising my scrap room. Boy am I glad I did though.. all those things you keep with some mad project in mind that you seem to never get around to... well I found a few of those I can tell you... empty formula tins, mini beer keg, old photo frames, newspapers, brightly coloured junk mail, toilet rolls, plastic cake packaging, even a ice cream shaped container that came from Target holding some underclothes for my eldest daughter. I have had grand ideas for them all and this month I intend on getting them ALL done !

So being in mind what I have said this month I am challenging you to look around your house and see what you can find that you will be able to...


The challenges are:

** Create a Layout using recycled items.. for example. cereal boxes, pizza boxes, bread tags, clothing labels, ribbon from clothing ... the list is endless

** Create a card using junk mail and punched on a card stock base ONLY !!! (you can add bling, ribbon, paint and ink though).

** Create an OTP item using recycled/re purposed items... for example that beer keg I mentioned earlier is destined as a gift holder of some really much needed munchies at Christmas time.. but badly needs a make over !

So as you can see the possibilities are endless. Why not give 1 or more of the challenges a go. You have until the 30TH OF SEPTEMBER to get your challenge entries in (EMAIL THEM HERE) and as always there will be an amazing Fiskars gift for the winner...If you have any questions feel free to ask away. I am here to help if you need it.

SHHH !!!!! Don't tell anyone though.... there may also be another little prize too along the way to those that participate the most.. I will have a few Fiskars crop kits to give away throughout the month... so don't forget to leave comments when I post about recycling..

Check back tomorrow too for some fun ideas about things to do with those unwanted items around you home. Don't forget too that the rest of our lovely Ambassadors will be sharing with some of their amazing work too following in this theme. Just can't wait to see it all. It is sure going to be another fun filled month here on the Fiskars ANZ blog !

Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with... I know I will have fun cleaning up for this one !

Cheers M x
