Pretty in Green

More using scraps to make cards.  I have a hard time mixing patterns.  The good thing is this appealed to me.  I think I got my groove back in the last few weeks I have been able to get about 80 cards ready for OWH!!  I have several more layed out on the work table waiting to be taped up.  Have a great day!

Scrapping with Scraps!


I have seen lots of cards where people were using small scraps and liked the results.  I had at one point cut up all my 12x12 into the size needed for card fronts. I tried leaving the pieces that were left over all large as possible.  My patterened papers were cut to fit inside a cardstock base with 1/4 edge left.  That cutting left me strips that were 5.5 long and 1 inch wide.  I used those strips for these cards.  I have enough to makes hundreds I am sure.  :)  Of course they would be different colors.  I guess I always drawn to Autumn colors first.

Lots of Color!


These are images I already colored.  Taking them one by one and making a card.  The background paper on the bottom one is paper that looked like water.  I did not think I would ever find a use for it.  I tried 3 other papers with this image first and liked this one the best.

Ready, Set, Go


The Bear is from Beccy's Place I had printed off four when I needed a birthday card for a friend.   The bikes and typewriters had been printed off and I was not sure how to use.  They both seemed to big for cards before I cut them out.  I like the old time feel. 
The crabs are some punch outs I bought when I thought I would be making lots of cards over the summer.  That did not happen.  But I can start making summer cards here and there for next year.

Sticker Fun


These are Tim Coffey stickers I have had for years.  I have not been able to figure out how to use them before.  I think they work great this way.  More of using what I have ready.

You got to have friends!


These are all images I received in a swap.  I hope to do some more swaps it was great having ready images to use.

These are more of my use what I got ready!  They really got me to inspired to make more.  Also reminded me that back in March I started making Christmas Cards and they are somewhere completed in my craft room.

I'm back!


It has been awhile since I have crafted.  We just had a lot of life changes.  Things are crazy and I need my crafting to calm me.  I have missed making cards for OWH and looking at all the creations of others.  I would like to be able to do some challenges soon as well. 
I decided that using up all  the printed digi's and the colored ones given to me would be a good place to start and would save the time of always going through them all every time I was looking for an image.  So I decided to take them one by one and make a card.  These were the first three.  I do not remember where the images came from.  I cut up all my paper to make it easier and quicker to make a card and forgot to jot or mark the brand. 
Made me feel like I accomplished something.
