When I'm at a scrapbook retreat or crop, I try really hard not to keep my scraps. So what do I do with them? I make cards!
Here are four cards I started at the Katie's World Weekend Crop. I only did the bases but added the "pretties" this past weekend.
I love how these turned out! I purchased the bride stamp about three years ago from the Scrapbook Expo but this is the first time I used it. LOVE IT!!! Since the image is very simple, I just put touches of watercolor on it and a lot of white and clear Wink of Stella for sparkle.
The flowers were colored two different ways. One with Real Red re-inker and a waterbrush and the other with alcohol markers. I did not like the way they looked so I randomly put little black dots and some highlights. Now I do. I like the "watercolored" flowers best. One card I embellished with a variety of washi tapes and the other with some gold metallic thread. Pretty, pretty!
After making the cards, I will toss the remaining scraps if any. Gasp! I know! For some reason it's easier to toss the scraps when I'm at a crop than when I'm home. But it gets pretty ridiculous to keep all scraps...right?!?
I received this gorgeous Thank You card from Lynne who I "met" via WOYWW. I love this card and it is hanging proudly in the Command Center. Go to Lynne's blog HERE. She sent a Thank You card for sending her some hollyhock seeds.
