Sraps to Treasures Blog Hop - Day 1

What do you do with all those scraps? Do you discard them? Do you let your children get their creative juices flowing with them? This hop gives some creative ideas on what to do with all those scraps that are just taking up space in your scrap box, if you have a scrap box. I have one and here is it...
You should have just hopped from Lissa Marie's Blog  If you just joined our hop, please start with Robin's blog, our hostess. Otherwise continue on from here and don't forget to check our sponsor's: Shannon Leffew Keith and Ginger Snap Scraps.

I decided I wanted some basic cards that I could add embellishments to as needed to fit the occasion that I would need them for. I started digging in my scrap pile of paper and in my extra cuts of ribbon and this is what I cam up with.

As I was cleaning up my scrap room, I found a little flower that I had made but didn't use and I realized it would look nice on this card so I added it to one of them. You can see what I mean by adding little embellishments to fit the card for any occasion.
Here's another card I came up with using scraps... Those are suppose to be coffee beans on the background.
Hope you enjoyed looking at what I've been up to and now continue on to Cicily's blog.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

  6. I love looking at your scrap pile, tons of sheets and lots of great colors and patterns. Love your idea to take a strip and hole punch it. That would be great for smaller scrapbooks too!

  10. I have scraps and more scraps!! I need to pick a day and organize them a little so I know what I have. Love your projects.

  11. Wonderful projects with your scraps!!!! *Erica

  12. TFS....I never know what to do with scraps!

  13. I love the card bases, how clever. that would save so much time when you finally had to make a card. TFS

  14. I most certainly DO have a scrap bin, but ... ohhh, it's over-stuffed. I need to get into the habit of USING the scraps instead of just making them, or having the fun of digging into a fresh new piece of 12x12" paper. Love your projects!
