Christmas is near and your mailbox is stuffed with all sorts of promotion brochure/ catalogue. Are you planing to throw them away? You might want to keep one or two if not all, in case you need a nice thank you card after your great holiday stay at relatives'/ friends' house or received some very thoughtful gifts during the holiday.
|When Ikea gives you catalogue, make cards!|
Anyway, here's what I have.

|As you can see, I cut out pretty much everything =P|
|Now you see..|
|Now you don't..|
I find it more difficult to work with upcycled materials compared to all those pretty scrapooking papers - materials come in all kind of sizes and shapes, different color tones, inconsistency of thickness etc. And the most challenging part, for me, is to avoid the upcycling projects from heading to some unwanted-things-thrown-together-crappy results. Because of that, I like to decorate with paper doily, ribbons and buttons to give it a touch of elegance.
