A Scrappy Kind of Day
I know I have said this before but if I didn't buy paper for the next year or so I could still make cards with what I already own. Yes I own alot. Paper is my weakness. It is the clothing on my cards. I just get such a thrill over new pretty paper!!! AHHHHHHH!! But I am on my self imposed craft budget so I really need to learn to use what I already own instead of buying anything new. So today I sorted through the large pile of scraps on my crafting table and make two cards with just the scraps. It really felt good to use them. I was really proud of myself for not cutting into a fresh piece of paper.
Now just to be honest, my first card is made from scraps of a new pad of paper I bought this week at Michaels but it was sooooooo on sale that I could not pass up the $5 deal. The dsp is from K&Company the Madeline line. My image is a beautiful Lockhart stamp from the Fleur Couture line.
My next card was made from scraps of paper that I had left over from my SEI Poppy Pack. I have a craft fair coming up and need to make some Birthday cards to have on hand. My image was watercolored with Old Olive and Baja Breeze and it is from the Friends 24-7 set from SU.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great night and I will be back tomorrow with more cards made out of what I already own!! I will use up what I have in stock yet!! Have a great night.
