Scraps can be Wonderful

When I prepared the spring scrapbook layout posted on April 20th, I had scraps left and decided to make a card. This is what I came up with. Very simple and easy. I used the paper I had left which I used the "Scatter Sunshine" jumbo roller on. I also used the tearing technique which was used on the scrapbook pages. I added the saying and the butterfly to give it a little more dimension and expression and edged it with stickles to give a little sparkle. All in all with scraps, I think it turned out fairly well.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment.

This is a card I did for the Mojo # 84 sketch this week. I have a couple at our church that is getting married and I thought this would be a good time to make a card for them. I just love this saying and instead of using it on the inside of the card, I used it on the outside. There are times you just have to change it up.
I used Stampin Up Card Stock Riding Hood Red as the base and the kiwi kiss is the background for the Designer series paper which came from the Sweet Nothings simply scrappin' kit. The stamp set is God's Blessings. I just love this set. The "LOVE" also came from the Sweet Nothings kit.

3 Ladies' Card

I am having a card class on May 7th and will be doing three ladies' cards and three men's cards. These are the 3 ladies' cards I will be doing (mother's Day Card, Birthday Card and an all occasion card). The one on the left top I actually punched the scallop circle through the top piece of the card so that when you open it the stamp will also be on the inside. Should have the men's cards ready to post by Monday.

I used the Walk in the Park Designer Series paper from the occasions mini catalog. I just love this paper. Card stock was Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze, and Basic Gray. I also used the Scallop Oval Punch from the occasions mini catalog, the large oval punch, the scallop circle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch and 1 3/8 circle punch along with the Scallop Edge punch. Stamp Sets were "A Flower for all Seasons", Oval All (occasions mini catalog), Bitty Birthdays and Curvy Verses.

This is "Administrative Associates" Week and I thought I would make a card for Robin. She is not an administrative assistant, but she does assist me with the budget. Actually I probably assist her with the budget. But anyway, this is a card I made tonight for her and used the Mojo Monday Sketch.
I used Stampin Up Vanilla, Close to Coco, and Pink Pirouette Card Stock, Candy Lane DSP, Close to Coco classic ink, water color pencils and Classy & Fabulous Stamp Set.

Page 2 of Spring Scrapbook Layout

This is page two of the spring layout I will be showing the girls from my office. It really turned out cute and I was excited how the pictures went in. There are times things just turn out even when you are not sure what you are doing. LOL

This will be my first post to my blog, so I thought I would introduce a scrapbook page I did for spring. I am actually going to demonstrate this at a small gathering for some of the girls I work with who are very interested in learning to scrapbook. It will also introduce my daughters and granddaughters.
The supplies I used are from stampin up. Paper-Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Pretty in Pink Card Stock. Stamp Sets were the hostess stamp set "God's Beauty" and "Simply Said". Also used the "Scatter Sunshine" jumbo roller on whisper white card stock. Inks - Certainly Celery, pretty in pink, baja breeze, and so saffron and Whisper White in craft ink. Supplies were circle cutter, adhesive, and pop dots.
