Scrap Card

Here is one of the cards that I am making with many of my scraps and patterned paper. Everything on the cards is retired except for the stamp that is from Fiskars. I got this stamp on a recent trip to AC Moore. The card is based on a sketch from Sheet Load of Cards. Can I just say that I really miss Sheet Load?

I have enough cut to make about 20 of these cards, so I'll have a good stash of cards! I will probably leave some of them without a greeting, so that I can stamp whatever suits my needs at the moment.

2 Sketches Card

I was so excited to get some craft time yesterday morning! I got an order of new Stampin' Up! product on Saturday and I was so happy to get a chance to play with some of it. I am still working on using up all of my scraps and I will have my scrap card to show you later this week.

This is my card using this weeks 2 Sketches 4 You sketch. I haven't been participating lately, but I'm glad to be back! I had so much fun with this sketch (and with my new stuff!)

I really love the new Patterns Stacks of DSP from Stampin' Up! There are only four patterns, but they are in ALL of the colors in the collection. Loving the new colors as well!

Materials in this card: (All materials SU!) Birthday Bliss stamp set; Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White card stock; DSP Patterns Stack-Brights; Designer Series Paper Pack (Hostess); Jet Black Staz-on; 1 3/4, 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 Circle Punches, Scallop Edge Punch; Brights Designer Buttons; Celebrations Quick Accents; Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose and Old Olive Markers.

Holy Scraps

So I've been organizing and cleaning out my stamp room and I have realized that I have way to many scraps and papers I'm not using. Deep down I knew this already, but I don't think I wanted to admit it, but I found two packs of retired Stampin' Up! Designer Paper that only had maybe one sheet used and then I realized that I had to admit that I had too much stuff I wasn't using. Admitting it is the first step, right? ;)

Now on to step two, I have recently come across a few card sketches that will be great for using up my designer paper and have been cutting like crazy!

I also plan to use up some of my scraps punching out shapes and cutting out shapes with my Big Shot for future use.

I'll have some pics of my scrap cards soon. I made a really cute one for a birthday and then forgot to take a picture before I mailed it.
