Scraptastic


Happy Monday all! I was completely inspired this weekend by Nichole's Scraptastic post. She challenged her design team and her readers to use up those scraps we all have in our stash. I, myself, tend to hoard scraps!! If it's big enough to use as a sentiment strip or I can punch it, I save it. Here I used a bunch of PTI scraps (except the green color is SU! old olive) and punched them with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I kept it clean and simple and added just a few other touches: some piercing, twine, a sentiment and some recycled rhinestones (they are actually part of an embellishment that I have started to cut apart.) I love how cheery this card is. It makes me feel like I'm a million miles away from this miserably cold weather!! I hope it adds sunshine to the person I send it to also. I've made several other cards using my scraps, I'll get to posting that soon.
Off to pick up the little one :) Enjoy!!!

LOVE this card! The paper piercing adds a nice touch. What are we going to do when we run out of Old Olive???!!!

LOVELY! I always have little butterflies, flowers or hearts of different colors lying around. What a great idea!
