What to do with the left over pieces on the crafting table? Sometimes, if they are small, honestly I pitch them. Usually when the pieces are that small, I am just plum tired of seeing the paper and don't want to even begin to think of another use. If the pieces are still salvagable, I may put them away for another day. However....lately, I have been making extra cards. For sale. The first card (pink and brown) I only had a 4" piece of the flowered DP. But I adore the bracket edge and wanted to make just one more card. So, using the same Get Sketchy sketch, just on a smaller card, put my scraps to work. Even the ribbon is a scrap about 10" long- and it was completely used up! The chocolate background paper is down to a 1x4" scrap- tossed (quite freeing actually!) I looked at my challenges for the day and it even met the Corrosive Challenge: use lots of flowers.
The next card uses up the remains of K&Co paper. But I totally LOVE this card, the color combo just pops! Now, this makes me wish I had more of the paper to make a few more cards with this combo!! The tissue flowers are a kick of mine lately. Just about finished off the sewing pattern on the table as well. The thicker the layers the puffier the flower. The button is from K&Co as well. Twine instead of ribbon (which I rec'd a package in the mail and my order was wrapped in this raffia. I kept it for a "rainy" day and love being able to recycle!) The card meets 2 challenges: Unscripted Sketches #61 (I used to be on the DT and LOVE the sketches! It was fun to participate again!) The other challenge was for Our CReative Corner: color combo keep it cool to use greens and blues.
