At our "Canadians, INK!" Team Gathering on Saturday, we were lucky enough to have Maria show us a really cool project she does using those "paper snakes" we demonstrators get in our orders all the time.
You know what those are, they're the crazy long massive packing paper lengths that they use to help keep our orders from rattling around in those boxes quite so much.
Anyhow, when she gets a new order, she flattens the paper out and irons out some of the wrinkles, and she uses them to cover or make book projects, like the one you see here.
She can distress the covers with ink to highlight the cool textures -- isn't that neat? Reduce, Re-use, Recycle... way to go, Maria!
If you don't recognize where the bison and quotation stamps come from, they're from a new set in the 2010 Stampin' Up! Catalogue called "In Wilderness".
I also had a chance to announce a great new program for all the Canadians, INK! team gals to participate... our new ARTISAN AWARD!
Just like Stampin' Up! has awarded many of the most talented demonstrators in North American with such a contest, I wanted something similar and fun, but for *my* team stampers. I've posted all the details of this competition on our team blog, so if you are one of us Inkers, be sure to go and check it out!
