Scrappy Cards

Hello Everyone!

A few weeks ago I was able to get away to work on my "There's No Place Like Home", along with some of my personal pages, and I had a TON of scraps left from these 2 projects!  So, instead of packing up my scraps for the future, I  just went ahead and took a few minutes to throw some cards together for me to use in the future.  On most of the cards, I didn't included a sentiment so that I can use them when I need them - here's a few to take a look at. 

{Blank Card}

For this card I used scraps of Pink Paislee's Hometown and Echo Park's For the Record.  I rolled my flower from a punched 2 in. circle, then punched a butterfly and ran it thru my Zyron X, when poured vintage glass glitter on it.  I hand cut a leaf, punched a label, and added these elements to a basic card front.  This will be a great "Thank You" card, or birthday card or possibly a Mother's Day card... and it took me less than 15 minutes!

Here's a boys card that I created using Crate Paper's Toy Box collection.  I LOVE this paper because it's so fun for little and big boys alike!  I also used the chipboard sticker shapes, which make added dimension and layers super fun and easy!
{Boy's Card}

I had left over circles from a page layout that I did, so I decided to use them for the card in place of a border.  I added some bakers twine around the card, which adds a lot for a little!  I then took a BINGO sheet that I had from a previous kit and kit it down so that it would fit inside the chipboard frame.  I just kept layering chipboard pieces and element stickers till I had the card the way I wanted.

I also put Glossy Accents on the "Toy Solider", I just wanted a different finish somewhere on the card.

Just a reminder, I'll be at Pages from the Heart tomorrow for the Spring Time banner and card class.  The cost is $22 and the class starts at 10 am.  If you can't make it to the class but would like a kit, just let me or Kathy know!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
