Happy Friday to you. Have any fun and exciting plans for this weekend? Will you be stamping? I'll be stamping, getting my Noah ready to go back to school (I'm not liking that part) and watching lots of soccer this weekend. Jonah has several games and a tournament. Pretty typical weekend here at the Yurkanin house. Whatever you have planned, I hope you truly enjoy your weekend.
This week at Sisters in Stamping we are sharing ways to use up your scraps. Do you have tons of scraps that you save just because? Well, today will give you some ideas on how to use up those scraps to make beautiful treasured projects.
I used scraps of Designers Series Paper to cover a heart for the focal point of this card. Very easy to do. Just cut those scraps into 1/2" strips and start placing them on your heart (or any other shape you may want) in random patterns. Be sure to "butt" them up to each other, you don't want any paper of the heart base showing through. It makes a great quilted/patchwork look.
Here's a close-up, so you can see it a little better. I just added some glitter paper flowers to give it some bling. You know how I love the bling.
Why don't you go and try it out? Please share when you do. I can't wait to see what everyone creates with their scraps.
Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more ideas on how to put those scraps to good use instead of cluttering your crafting area.
