Something Old, Something New - Day One!

Xyron started updating their website about the same time we selected a new Design Team.  With each new DT we have done a fun "something old, something new" project - so we selected our most viewed projects on and challenged our DTers to be inspired to create something new using the old projects as a guide.  All this week we will feature these projects AND tutorials on how to complete them on your own!

Viki Tiamat took an old, discarded piece of a...wait for it...WASHING MACHINE - and turned it in to this beautiful centerpiece:

using inspiration from this summer centerpiece project.

Head on over to Viki's blog to find out just how she did it and what inspired her!

Stacy Rodriguez updated this gift card and bag project idea:

and created this beautiful, colorful, multi-layered set that anyone would be thrilled to receive!  On her blog today Stacy shares a step-by-step tutorial on how to create the bag with leftover pieces of patterned paper.

Marjie Kemper went canvas crazy on her blog today! sing this four-canvas project as inspiration:

she created a lovely canvas-on-canvas project and shows you some great techniques for making your own.

Thanks for stopping by - stay tuned all week for more fun project make-overs!
