Use a household product theme for the March 2020 challenge at APTS blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog with a post that revolves around creative resourcefulness! What can you upcycle from something found in your house? Maybe it's not upcycling. Maybe it's repurposing. Whatever sparks your creativity in this, it might be difficult to outdo the rest of the design team crew of APTS blog!

For my resident designer (DT crew) inspiration project(s), I got the brainstorm about using the word "ultrabrite"/ultrabright for adjectives to make a friendship card and an encouragement/sympathy card=

Card #1= larger font size brand name from toothpaste packaging

Card #2= medium font size brand name from the same toothpaste packaging

And my ID badge for A Place to Start:

more scans that have been cropped of both cards to give close-ups:

Supply and/or vendor notes:
a. Card #2's Scripture Stickers are from Creative Devotion purchased at Family Dollar (I found 3 different sets. All the clear-view ones shown are from the same sticker set.)

b. lots of scraps used today!--both of cardstock and patterned papers--win-win

c. "Ultrabrite" TM panels cut from 1 box that a tube of toothpaste came in.

d. My Mind's Eye is the product line for the patterned cardstock scraps found on both cards (minty blue with white dot and it's reverse side that looks like notebook paper)

other blogs and groups where this post will be linked=
a. Alphabet Challenge Blog; X is for X-tra Embellishments (card 2 has lots of the clear-view vinyl Scripture stickers and card 1 has 3 butterfly stick-ons)

b. Shopping Our Stash challenge blog; The Great Outdoors or nature theme; {Card #1: butterflies; or Card #2: 2 patterned papers with flowers}

c. Christian Card-Makers Women's Fellowship group on Facebook specifically for card #2
