LESSology Challenge #5: You've Got Mail!

'ello!

Did you see the FUN new challenge over at LESSology

"You've Got Mail" 

There's no reason why you shouldn't make the outside of your mail as pretty as the contents inside. Don't forget to include at least one upcycled item in your creation. 

Check out our FUN Sponsor!!!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Pixie Dust Paperie. The winner gets a $20 gift certificate!

I'm a big fan of taking the 'cover sheet' of a 12 x 12 Collection and fussy cutting items.

Today's projects uses the Crate Paper I Love Winter Collection:


I decided to decorate my 'rescued' note card set.  For those of you that follow my blog may remember me mentioning that a gal at work recycled a bunch of 5x5 note cards/envelopes to me!  They were headed into the recycle bin because of the change in stationery.

Here's the envelope:


The Trio of Snow Peeps and the "happy winter" sentiment were fussy cut from the collection 'cover page'. 

Here's the coordinating card:


See that Christmas Tree?  Yup, it was fussy cut too!  I cut it in the shape of a tree and did some stitching to make it seem like the pieces were stitched together:)

Here's the duo together:


Can't wait to see how the challenge inspires YOU!
