Utilising Scraps

What an exciting week its been with all the Design Team announcements being made!  Its nice to be working with some familiar faces and lovely to see some amazing new talent joining our wee team :)

The last time I posted, I showed you a mini album I created using Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection.  You can see it here.  And I promised you I would show you what I did with some scraps.  So here goes!

Recently I purchased a Sizzix die, a pillow box.  I had in mind a birthday gift for my mum coming up soon, so I thought this is the perfect opportunity to tuck inside a necklace I had bought for her.  I had just enough paper left over to make the pillow box and a card to match.  Ive also used some of that dimensional black ribbon that Adrienne stocks - just love this stuff, it gives dimension to any project without even having to think about it :)  what more you want!

The sketch for the card I found at Juliana Michaels blog, she does some amazing sketches, and I like the versatility of using them for cards as well as layouts.  Heres her blog:  www.17turtles.blogspot.com

Well, I hope this as inspired you to get using those scraps - my resolution this year is to make a card after every layout or OTP is completed, with the scraps, wonder how long I can keep it up!

Happy Scrapping everyone!

I have one of those dies (stampin up), but I never thought of using it to make such a beautiful book. most stampin up is quite plain. anyway I have stacks of scraps...all colourcoded!
