Oh Scrap!

I was inspired by the challenge at Stamp Ink Paper to use up scraps.  I'm one of those crazies that can't get rid of scraps.  And I'm a scrapbooker, which means when I create a layout, I'm inundated with loads of scraps of pattern paper that I just can't part with.  I try to immediately cut them into card size pieces and create something so I'm not storing them.  I'll tuck them into a bag and pull them out later to play around.  These four cards came from one such adventure.

As you look at them, you'll see the same patterns were used across the board.  I will usually grab some of the bigger pieces to create some front panels and set them aside.  From there it's all about cutting them up! 

For the first two cards, I maximized the use of dies.  

For this first one, I die cut the many pattern papers into flowers and layered them into the corner and up one side of my card.  I love the dimension and simplicity. 

 And this next one was all dies . . . no stamping (except that sentiment). 

No stamping (except that sentiment). 


For these next too . . . no stamping anywhere.  I took advantage of sentiment that was in the paper scraps.  Just a quilt background and some circle and scallop dies on this one . . .

 And I love the super simple look of this next one . . .

Layers of paper with a border die . . . that was it.  The sentiment was one of those tape runners! 

Great way to use up scraps. 

I hope you find some time to create today!
