Love You Sew Much

I was cleaning off my table last night and throwing away scraps of paper.  It is difficult for me to get rid of scraps of paper because I might NEED them some day!   I was trashing stuff and the next thing I realized I was sitting at the table and taking said paper scraps and making a card!  LOL...and this is why I don't get rid of scraps often...you can do such cute things with small pieces of paper.

For example the white circle is actually a circle I cut the other day when I did the You're so Tweet card....I just flipped it over and used the smooth surface to stamp "love you sew much".  Most of those scraps were only slightly larger and needed just a bit of trimming.  I had some older chipboard hearts and used some Liquid Pearls to cover them.  The trim was a piece leftover from another project and a Simon Says Stamp card kit from last year sometime.

It felt good to use up these scraps and give them a home on this card:

I added a few Hero Arts gems and voila!...a fun card!

Here is a closeup of those hearts and that cute trim...

Fun...and mostly made with trash.  HAHA!  Not really but made with things that were soon going to become trash!  Sad to think these scraps might have ended up in a land fill somewhere!

  2. LOL. Your trash scraps are so much bigger than what I call scraps; even the white circle looks non trashable which is a good thing because this is a wonderful creation. Especially like the heart trim & use of the liquid peaarls. I keep strips of scraps because I discovered recently that I can use them to make a rainbow with the 1/4" strips and it is not easy to cut it to that size but when you cut a Tim Holtz Tag you end up with a border that can be trimmed for scraps of this size.
