One of my favorite things to do! I think it’s because my parents grew up during the great depression. “Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without” was one of the sayings of that time and we lived by it. I can’t seem to throw away perfectly good stuff, and I really feel virtuous when I use every last scrap!
Here is what I have to work with this summer. I think I made a good dent in it today. See if you can find what I used!
I can show you some of what I made, but others will have to wait until design team days.
This is what I did with the two snowflake pieces left over from Cut it Up’s Mardi Gras challenge, here. I’m not all that happy with the top one and will probably discard it later, but at least it’s off the desk.
This card used three leftovers. I had a couple of the blue embossed mats and a couple white and black mats. I had previously adhered the pink flower on. It was a negative cut from some other project, but it was so pretty in itself I couldn’t throw it out.
Here’s the last one I have to show you today. I love the bold colors on this one. The white and black mat already had the blue snowflakes on them, also from the Mardi Gras challenge. The papers are scraps. The stamp is from Unity, called Explore, enjoy, believe, inked up with Stampin’ Up Not Quite Navy using my MISTI.
I can’t wait to show you the rest. Stay tuned!
