Now that’s out of the way….I’d better go the whole hog and show the extent of my problem…..these are the boxes of scraps I keep on my work surface…
…oh and there is a folder (um couple) of scrapbooking scraps as well…… oh and file box of scraps ready to make Atc’s……….um ….that’s it!
I thought I would have a break from doodling this week (but if you want to see a brilliant doodled card check out Gina A’s card here…guaranteed to raise a smile).
I found a lovely little silhouette daisy here. I decided I should be making a couple of Easter cards. After having a route through my scraps for some spring coloured pieces I draft printed my flower, then pieced some scraps over the image before printing the image a second time. Once I trimmed the the image to shape, I recycled some of my left over Christmas cards for the base and stuck the flower image over the Christmas one.
The second card was made by printing directly on a large scrap, placing it under the front flap of the card and cutting directly through both layers, the two panels were held together by another scrap stuck behind(I also repeated the image on the inside holding piece).
I would also like to join in with Allsorts “Anything goes challenge” this week, I haven’t visited them for ages…..might as well share my shame with the wider world…..and….
Final confession….…sometimes I can be ruthless and throw small scraps away….trouble is next day I normally dig through the rubbish and retrieve them……..tell me I’m not alone.
