Scraps - Day 3

As we mentioned at the beginning of the week our DT have been creating projects using up their scraps. A super great way to use up your old supplies before buying all the new amazing products that are coming out after CHA!!

Let's see what they created.

"Surprise" Birthday Card

I am almost always creating birthday cards from scraps.  It is easy to use scraps to make the colors and style match the personality of the recipient.  This simple card was created by combining a Silhouette cut file and some simple Imaginisce die cuts.  Under a few random circles I added some colored scrap papers.  Adding a ribbon and some enamel dots helps create some different textures and tie the whole thing together.

Supplies Used:
Die Cuts: Imaginisce Birthday Bash 
Patterned Paper: Imaginisce Berrylicious
Cardstock: American Crafts
Enamel Dots: My Mind's Eye
Ribbon: Ribbons Unlimited

"Let it Snow" Card

My favorite thing to do with scraps is to cut them up and put them back together to make something interesting!  For the background of this card I cut triangles out of the light blue paper and then applied them to the card leaving spaces between, allowing the base to peek through!  I also fussy cut some snowflakes from scraps and surrounded those by small snowflakes punched in a complementary colour   

Supplies Used:
Stickers: Imaginisce Childhood Memories
Patterned Paper: Imaginisce Colors of Christmas
Cardstock: CutCardStock
Gems: Queen & Co.
Doily: Wilton

"Let it Snow" layout

It's Katrina here to share a layout that is made completely from scraps of collections that I had laying around.  Well, minus the cardstock!  Creating a die cut background and backing the openings with pattern paper is a great way to use up those little scraps of paper that you have left over from previous layouts.  

You can also create title for your pages out of your scraps by using a die cutting machine.  Here I used a Silhouette, but any electronic or manual die cutter can create a fun title for your page.

I used left over bits and pieces from the embellishments on my page also.  Clustering your embellishments not only help you use them up, but also create a fun accent on your project.

Thanks for stopping by the Imaginisce blog today!  If you create something out of scraps be sure to leave a comment or link it up on the Imaginisce Facebook page.
