Tell me I’m not the only person who stamps images or cuts paper thinking it will be PERFECT for my project I’m working on, only to put it down on my paper and realize that it doesn’t fit AT ALL! Then when I realize they don’t work for my project, I have a hard time just throwing them in the recycle bin because I know they are perfectly good elements for another card or project. So, I collect them in a small box to use for later.
Well, I periodically decide it is time to just start creating using my scraps because otherwise they take over my craft table, that box, and everywhere else in my craft room! So, today I thought I’d share a card I created using only scraps from my pile. I think the only thing I cut fresh was the Baked Brown Sugar twine!
I think the stars were originally from an idea I had for a patriotic card. I used the Be the Star stamp set and the Star Framelits (which are on the weekly deals this week – btw!) So I just layered them using some dimensionals and then added some of the thick baker’s twine in Baked Brown Sugar and my main element was ready to go!
Then I just used a scrap piece of patterned paper from the Trim the Tree designer paper stack (still on the Clearance Rack for a great deal!) and a stamped sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set Simply Wonderful.
So you never know when you will be able to mix elements for many times of the year to get a great anytime card!
Just a few reminders:
Oh, and don’t forget the new weekly deals!
