Scrap Pile Challenge cards

Here is a picture I took of a pile of scraps, odds and ends of a little of everything that I want to get rid of. So I am challenging myself to try and use as much of it up as possible. The next few cards I post this week will be what I have created from this pile. The only thing I am allowing myself to use are images that are already stamped that I have stamped myself or others have sent me (I have a ziploc bag full of these that I take with me to color when I know I am going to be "waiting"-like for appt's or mostly for Benjamin when picking him up from track practice), 1/4 sheets of cs already embossed (mostly from Cuttlebug), solid cs from my scrap box and white cs to make the card base. Oh, I am also letting myself use verse stamp sets too.

Here are two that I have done so far (plus I also made the sketch challenge card from my scrap pile). I absolutely LOVE this puppy! My Big Sis (from SCS) sent me a few images and I think I have one left! I also love these little pearl thingies too! They have adhesive on them, so all you have to do is stick them on. Makes for some really fun accents. This Bella gardener is another image RAK I rec'd (can't remember from who), but I have been having fun with the ones in my bag, coloring them and getting them put on cards! The strip pieces on both cards are what was left over from last weeks Techno sketch challenge.


  1. Oh for goodness' sakes! You're creating the cutest treasures from your "sort-of" trash! Way to go!

  2. What a great, great idea to force yourself to use your scraps! Love what you've created!

  3. Good for you to actually USE the scraps! Both of these cards are adorable and very springy!
