Get Scrappy Bloghop

Welcome to the Get Scrappy Bloghop!

Today I am participating the Get Scrappy Bloghop organized by Chaitali, her blog is called Cuts, Crops, & Creativity.

You should have arrived from Joyce's blog.  If not, you could go back Chaitali's blog to start from the top; and should you got lost, listed below is the bloghop orders:

  • Cecilia
  • Olga

  • Today's theme is to use scraps to make cards/paper crafts.  And I have a sizable collections as you can see in these photos:
    These are bigger pieces of card stock left over after cutting the card base.  I group them by colour and place in 12x12 scrapbook page protectors.
    The smaller pieces of card stocks I put them in smaller resealable bags.  And for even smaller pieces, I die cut them.  And then there are extra pieces that's not used or rejected from previous projects.

    For the first card, I used some die cut flowers and butterflies.  And added pearls to dress them up a little after I adhere them onto a cream colour panel with grid I prieced.

    The second card I picked one piece from each colour (group) card stock and treat the edge differently (including stamping, faux-stitch, edge-punch, distress with ink, die cut, torn edge, and cut with decorative scissors).  And I added a couple of left over pieces (the brown strip and round scallop) onto the card.

    The third one I use these pieces:
    to make this card:

    I really had fun making these from my scraps, and hope you enjoy them. 

    Will there be prizes?  Glad you asked, yes there are.  Link up your scrappy project on Chaitali's blog, one random winner for a prize will be draw from all who link up their projects.  You have until mid-night April 6th, 2013.  A second prize will be awarded to one lucky commenter from all the comments left along the bloghop stops.

    Now your next stop is at Cecilia's Cards.

    Enjoy the rest of the hop!!

    What a fun way to use your scraps. Paper piercing the squares really highlight your embellishments on your 1st card. Your different edge finishes really show up nicely on the solid colored papers ~ fun birthday card. Your pear card is just adorable all framed up!

    You are a master at recycling scraps, Cindy! They are all super-creative, but that first one calls to me. It is like a special quilt - love how you pierced that cream background. You are on a serious roll, girlfriend!
