One of my goals this month is to use up my Clementine Paper Packet so you will see a bit more with this paper and then I will be done! For this layout I took two of the zip strips that were cut from the tops of the papers and put them together to make the decorative border in the center. I used Glitter Glitz to the edges of the scalloped circles to add some sparkle to the page. I used this sketch from Inspired Blueprints.
These are the cards from the Flirty Workshop on the Go Kit with modifications. I purchased the Love Blooms stamp set with the Flirty Paper Packet instead of the Flirty Workshop on the Go Kit. I replaced the stamped images and dimensional elements with images from this stamp set and added a variety of different embellishments.
WELCOME! I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”. If you have already started, you should be coming from Joy’s Blog. If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here. This month we are focusing on our scraps. This is one of my favorite challenges because I love using things up.
Supplies used: Die Cuts with a View paper, Close to My Heart ribbons, Close to My Heart Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes, American Crafts Thickers, and Close to My Heart Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems.
When I first think of “use up scraps” I think of paper. But for this hop I decided to do something different and use up some embellishments, specifically scraps of ribbon. I really like using paper like this that already has a pattern on it. It makes for a quick and easy layout. I also like adding embellishments to the base like the pearls I added to the flower centers along the bottom.
I used the sketch below from The Scrapbook Room. This would also work great to use up scraps of paper.
Now hop on over to Judy’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.
