'lil Gilli Girly stamp is helping me reuse and recycle!


I really enjoy colouring my Gilli stamps and this uber cute 'lil Gilli girly stamp was the perfect size to help me out with the Recycle challenge we had. 

I had these leftover papers from a card I made that I was going to throw most of them away as they were too small for the card size I typically make. I then had the idea to make a mini card and so my sweet little Gilli stamp works perfectly for when you need a small stamp for a small card. 

I also used this button which I had saved from another project that I was getting rid of. Sometimes my ever present cup of tea spills on my craft area from my cats leaping around and if I have left my cards out...well sometimes tea stained is not the look I am going for so out they go. I have started to take off ribbon, buttons, brads etc to be reused even though it is not like I don't own tons..I just hate throwing out a perfectly good item that could be re-purposed. I am really happy with how my card from scraps turned out and the Fall colours are perfect for this time of year before the snow starts. Which could be any day now lol. 

Anytime you would like to play along with us Gilli girls we would love to have you over at our challenge blog. You could even win some sweet Gilli stamps of your own!

Cheers, Andi
