... JOKE! I'm scheduling this for the morning. The only frenzy that'll be happening
is me running after my 2 little Grand Boys!
This week has been a frenzied week of scrappy activity tho.
Cos I had a bit more of a tidy up. And found all sorts of bits that I'd
tucked away because at the time I didn't know how or what to use them on.
So, CHALLENGE TIME for myself.
USE it. OR LOSE it. As in dump it in the bin.
Proudly, I have made 20+ cards in all sorts of weird and wonderful
configurations and used up the strangest bits of stash.
Unfortunately, I took very few photos. They're not cards I can repeat,
in the main. Except this one that I LOVED making:
Years ago I'd won this digital sentiment stamp. Printed it out, then left to rot.
Well, not quite. I added a strip of gold washi to the top, then punched that row
of hearts in the vellum overlay that I added.
Even punched the bottom edge! And those wood peeps? Find them HARD to
use, but coloured them up & added some Wink of Stella.
Waaaay happy. So, is anyone getting married? I've now got 3 or 4 wedding
cards done. And no-one getting hitched. LOL!!!!!
And here's another LO that I haven't shared.
Notice, I'm not entering challenges still!!
But still having fun scrapping:)
I've also been doing a little bit of Happy mail.
This is one made with Project Life cards,
joined with washi tape.
A great way to use up some of those PL cards, that
also BREED in the cupboard!
The macaroons I fussy cut; the little girl image
was a RAK I was given, so I coloured her in.
That 'envelope' washi is from K-Mart. Got it for 50c a roll!
And of course, the hearts are actually paint chips
Oh! And the 'happy days' saying is fussy cut from a PL card.
So, you could say my Happy Mail is also an opportunity
to use up Stuff from the Scrap Vault;)
This is the inside, with all the little folders flipped open.
You can see some of the bits I've made - the glitter reinforcing rings, on the right.
The fringed round embellie in the middle.
The embossed vellum envelope on the left.
Top L are the flowers I made from the bit of black plastic
from a shopping bag base. I've cut it into flowers, then
heat embossed it.
Top right is a doily 'pocket' with mini doillies I've
die cut inside:)
I get a great THRILL from making little bits...
This is it closed up. The fringed tag on the L is not mine.
I got given it from a Happy Mail!! But I added the little
envelope [made with Liquid Pearls :)]...
Beside the little kitty on the bottom, R, is a fake
flair, made with an epoxy resin bottle cap.
I like making those!
Here's the back [outside]:
It sorta looks odd being upside down because they are
the sides that get folded up & in!
I do like that saying. It's from a Reject Shop
bunch of bits....& the 'dream' butterfly embellie
is one of a group I made to use up scraps of pp.
OOOPS! All of a sudden I've done a huge long post.
Have a lovely weekend, wherever you are in this
wonderful world we live in ~ Blessings!
