Scraps - Day 2

We're back today with more inspiration on how to use up those scraps!!

Today we have designers Michelle & Angi sharing their work.



* woop woop * it’s my first real project up as an Imaginisce designer.  So excited to be here with you today and sharing a lil’ project made with scraps.
I had a couple sheets of patterned paper that I had already worked with on a project that you will see later on, along with some American Crafts cardstock pieces, and some HAPPY diecuts from that same cardstock, so I decided to make some mini happy-new-baby cards. 

These cards are about 3.5x5.5, so a little odd size.  But that’s OK, right?

I adhered a block of patterned paper for my base, added a panel to the side which included that bottom patterned strip that comes on 12x12 patterned paper sheets, adhered my HAPPY, did a little faux stitching with a gel pen, added a cute lil’ cardstock shape diecut, and then finished it off with some staples.  A couple of baby cards done and in the stash just waiting for folks to have babies this year!

Supplies:  My Baby (Sweet Baby Girl & Sweet Baby Boy) patterned paper by Imaginisce; Die-cut cardstock shapes by Imaginisce; cardstock by American Crafts; die; Big Shot die-cutting machine; Uniball Signo gel pen; Tim Holtz tiny attacher; adhesive; dimensional adhesive.


I never want to get rid of my Imaginisce scraps. The paper is too bright and happy to just toss away. I've been busy stocking up on handmade gifts that I've made for my fellow teachers.  

I found this mini chalkboard at my local craft store. I began to dress it up by placing paper around the frame. I then ran some scraps through my die-cutter and made a flower. I layered pieces and added it to the bottom of the frame. I also added an Imaginisce sticker to the top of the board.

This gift would not be complete without a handmade card. I combined both Imaginisce and American Crafts products for this happy design.

Supply List
Imaginisce: patterned papers (Endless Summer, Falling Leaves Bushel O' Fall)
Imaginisce: Just Be Little Icons
Imaginisce: Colors of Christmas Bling
American Crafts


We hope that you'll stop by again tomorrow because we have more fabulous ideas to share with you!
