Scrap it...

Good morning everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this wonderful weekend. Hopefully the sun is out and you're able to really enjoy the fun. Otherwise, what a great crafting day it becomes, right?

My lovely friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Lisa, sent me a card last year and I kept it to put in my little mini album that I plan to make. Well, I caught site of it and thought - hey, I should scraplift this and use up my scraps - that paper pile is getting too big. Isn't her yellow card cute? She makes the most fantastic things that you can see on her blog, as well as tips, tricks and techniques; not to mention fun challenges (one of which I just won).

I put together some colors of card stock and the strip that goes across the card.

I folded each card stock in half and scored it to make a harder crease on the fold.

I cut up the scraps in the usual piles (5.5 x 4.5, 6 x 6) and then I used my SU! punches for those small scraps that just don't bear throwing out.

These little note cards will come in handy when I'm sending stuff for swaps, etc. Just a little something - something. *smile* What about you? What do you do with your scraps that you can't bear tossing in the trash?

You can see more of Lisa's fabulous crafty goodness on her blog, "Peanuts and Peppers Papercrafting." Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Crafting! :~)

Oh Terry, what a fabulous idea, and I just love the ease of which they can be created. They are so beautiful, and wouldnt they make lovely little gift sets for birthdays and other celebrations. I love all the bright colours and they really are so cute. Thank you for sharing this. I may have to make some myself, is that ok. Happy crafting sweetie.
Lots of love, Sandra xx

These are so sweet Terry, I love the punched borders. I just recently started a new filing system for my scraps so I am using them more now.

Well, Terry once again this is a great idea. I love your cards and I will be borrowing yours and Lisa's idea soon. I have so much scrap paper and I will never use it all up trying to use it in other projects. What size are they? And do you make the envelopes? Loving this idea.
