Use those SCRAPS!

This week I do not have my normal 4 days off in a row at work, I have to work tonight and that always breaks up my creative time too.  So rather than start scrapbook pages and have to leave in the middle of an artistic brain storm I decided to make cards today.  But what cards to make? 

One of the reasons I love being a CTMH consultant is that I have access to the CTMH consultant website! What a wealth of information and ideas there are!  So after checking out some of the ideas I settled on one of the workshop cards. 

Here is the original:

I loved how simple it is but was not sure if I have the supplies.  Sure enough I had just a little of my Roxie paper left (from the Fall 2011 Idea Book).  But I need “Thank You” Cards… here is what I came up with using the above pattern for inspiration.




Supplies used:

X7140B Roxie Level 2 Paper Pack

1388 Colonial White Cardstock

(from my scrap buckets)

D1482 My Acrylix® Love Life

D1361 My Acrylix® Thank You

Z1463 Just Blooms® Flutter Paper Shapes

Z2118 Desert Sand Exclusive Inks® Pad

Z2196 Smoothie Exclusive Inks® Pad

Z697 Sponge

DMC - ECRU “Colonial White” Thread (for stitching)

So with a pattern and a free afternoon I was able to use some left over paper and made some beautiful cards.
