Good Morning Folks! Here are two cards I made for my "Project Reduce Scraps". All of the items except the base card were all made from scrap items meaning already cut up cardstock and designer paper and open packs of embellishments and such.
I'm on a mission to reduce my piles of scraps and I'll continue this until I've reduced my pile somewhat. There's no way I'll ever reduce my pile completely but I would like to put a dent in them.
I had colored the flower images while on the airplane way back in April when I went on my trip to Washington DC and they sat in my drawer since then. I decided to pull them out and use them. The colors of the images were a bit dull looking so I added stickles glitter to jazz them up a little.
I have a ton of buttons that need to be used because I'd like to buy another pack in different colors but I won't do it until I use all of the buttons I already have.

Here's another card I made using my scraps. Lemme tell yah, I probably could make a month's worth of cards and only reduce my scrap pile by half. I'll try to work faster than that. It'll be nice when my pile goes down.
I had opened a jar of chipboards by Making Memories I believe 6 months ago and I still have have a jar of chipboards. The chipboard images are really cute but all of the images are daisies, butterflies, and photo corners. How many cards do I have to make using the same images? A lot. . .so I guess I have to find many creative ways to use them in order to use up all the chipboards in this jar.
On to the next project. . .see you all later
