peace on earth (day)!

we're still celebrating cards made with re-cycled, re-purposed and up-cycled elements at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and there's still plenty of time for you to join the fun! this week i had a blast playing with paint chips... no salsa required, lol!

christmas trees cut from benjamin moore paint chips using echo park's "story of our christmas" tree die; snowy hills made of collaged vintage text paper scraps covered with part of a doily; patterned paper: sei; glittery snowflake stickers with very visible plastic backing: from the dollar store; sentiment diecut: pebbles; glossy kromekote cardstock: the paper cut; adjesives: staples brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, scotch gluestick, sewing machine

i'm not sure why i love this little forest of trees sooooooooooo much... but i really do... so i didn't want to bring in too many other elements, i made a hilly foreground (vintage paper scraps covered in part of a doily) and a snowy sky (a scrap of ancient SEI paper and half a packet of dollar-store snowflakes) popped on a diecut sentiment and called it day!

there are loads more eco-friendly masterpieces in the earth day readers' gallery, not to mention a brand new, rather fabulous card from stephanie over at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ won't you drop by and visit those now? ♥


  1. Love your forest of paint chip trees, there is that brilliant mind again. Great use of the doily. looking forward to getting my second card finished.

  2. OH MY those paint chip trees! I am going to have to steal that idea! (I'll like back!)

  3. Yeahhhhhhh this popped up on my feed and I maaaaay have squealed a little bit. How much more clever can you get? You seem to have no maximum capacity for genius.

  4. I really do love your little forest of paint chip trees! SOOOOOO creative and just down right wonderful!

  5. I love it too! and the doily hill, the fab use of dollar store snowflakes and paper scraps too. Perfectly Lauren-y and lovely (though that is quite redundant, no?)
