It's A Blog Hop! Get Scrappy!


Hi, guys! Hope all is well. Today I am participating in The Get Scrappy Blog Hop!

As paper crafters, we all share one thing in common:  paper scraps!


Yes, that is my folder filled with my scraps!  Today, I will share how I often use my scraps in my card making!

I will be making three cards using the following scraps from my folder to make fun embellishments. Aren't they pretty?


I just love patterned paper.  I hate to waste any of it.  So I use them to make die cuts for embellishments. I cut my papers into strips and then adhere them to a piece of card stock in fun patterns.



Then I cut out die cuts to use for my cards.  For the first one, I used the Tattered Floral Die by Tim Holtz.



This is the card I made using this fun embellishment.  Cute, or what?


For the second one I used the Caged Bird Die by Tim Holtz.



This is the card I made with the bird embellishment.



Finally, for the third card, I used the Townscapes die by Tim Holtz.



This is the card I made using the Townscape embellishment.



I hope this has inspired you to pull out your scraps and get SCRAPPY!

The next person up is Bethany. She will be sharing how she uses her paper scraps.

Super idea for how to use scraps. I am definitely going to try this. I love how your embellishments turned out, and your cards, too.

Awesome cards. You have shared the transformation from scrap paper to card with those pics so well... Loved your creations!

Pooja Wagh said...

Awesome cards... Loved seeing the pics from scrap paper to cutouts to the card...

Cecilia Hsieh said...

Winnie, I love your paper strips technique to use up your scraps! I must give it a go!

Turklish Yazar said...

These are beautiful! What amazing creativity - and so efficient to use the scraps. It would be hard to give them away as cards - I would want to frame them :-)

Kathy Mc said...

OMG, your embellishments are adorable using paper scraps. They really pop on your fun cards. Must try this technique soon ~ TFS!

Glenna Anderson said...

Beautiful cards! Love this technique.

I'm going to show this to my boys. They are always creating out of paper. Did I tell you that Ben makes motorcycles out of paper, with all the detail of a real motorcycle? He is getting better and better at using scraps because so many of his projects involve tiny bits.

Paige said...

I love how you use your scraps with die cuts. I'm so inundated with scraps it's scary!

Marcy said...

Wow Winnie! Love all of these cards and I'm so impressed at how you used your scraps! I have so many of these myself so you've just inspired me to make some cards with them! Fabulous job! :)

I hate wasting scraps too! You made some beautiful cards using the leftovers, and no one would ever even know.

Tania said...

These are awesome. I just spent time this weekend and finally got my scraps organized. All your cards are lovely and my faves are the bird one with the yellow base and the last one with the Townscapes die.
