5 BE YOU by Erin Bullock

Be You Eco-friendly Scrapbook Layout by Erin Bullock

Go green! Going green with paper crafting can be easy, inexpensive and fun! Start thinking outside of the box and consider how things can be incorporated to your projects before tossing them as garbage.

Use free supplies. A paper doily from under my tea cup was reused on this project to add texture – and it was free! Vintage stamps were added for a touch of color, also free!

Support eco-conscious companies. Basic Grey’s papers are made with FSC-certified paper and soy-based inks, making a green-friendly product. Even the chipboard letters from K&Company are made from recycled materials!

Plan for the future. Get creative with your found materials to create an inexpensive, fun craft that your children (and their children!) will enjoy for years to come.

Supplies: decorative cardstock (Basic Grey), trim (My Mind’s Eye), recycled chipboard alphabet (K&Company), vintage stamps, reused doily, typewriter, fine tip black pen (Faber Castell), adhesive (Glue Dots), one photo. Layout is 12 x 12″.
