Little Red Wagon #147

This week's challenge at Little Red Wagon is brought to us by Tammy and it is all about recycling any household item on our project. It can be any item you wouldn't normally find in your favourite paper crafting store or aisle.

I looked around my house and the only thing I could find was an old, damaged paperback that I had put aside thinking I might be able to use the pages for scrapbooking one day. With back-to-school being right around the corner, I thought how perfect it would be to include a page from the book on a school themed card!

I worked with an adorable digi image from Tiddly Inks called SchoolGirl and I used my Copic markers plus a little paper piecing on her skirt.

The papers are from Authentique and I finished off my card with a bit of stitching, a clip and some twine.

I hope you join in the fun this week! Hop on over to Little Red Wagon to see what the other Girlfriends created - I am sure you will be inspired!


  1. I love this Joanne!! Gorgeous card!! And I just love this collection from Authentique. The colours are fabulous!

  2. Great card. Lovely coloring, as always. She is so cute!

  3. "Hey there, Esther." Sorry that just jumped out at me and I found it funny. :)

    But it doesn't distract from how fabulous this card is!! Your colouring is lovely and the papers are wonderful. And that paper piecing is yummy.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! You are such an inspiration :)

  5. You are too funny Jan! She kind of looks like an Esther though :)
    Joanne xo

  6. Fab card Joanne! As a teacher, I'm a bit bias and love school related projects! LOVE that cursive writing paper. I have an old book that I use all the time to pull pages from for scrapbooking. It probably sacrilegious for an English teacher--but, oh well, all in the name of my other passion!

  7. Adorable and I want her skirt! :)

  8. Oh Joanne...I love this technique...I use it all the time! Great card!
