My quest to use up scraps is ongoing and I'm still trying to reach for the bits boxes every time I make something although sometime, particularly for challenges, I have to break into new pieces of card or paper which of course makes more scraps!  This card was made entirely from oddments of  Stampin' Up papers and bits of plain card for the die cut ornate corners (Marianne die).  I was forced into a bit of tidying yesterday to find enough space to work on my desk which made realise what I already know really - that I do not need to buy any more crafty goodies!! I wonder how long it will be before I hit the 'buy now' button again or visit my local craft shop.


  1. A really fabulous card, I'm sure you must have felt good after creating it from scraps. Hugs Rita xx

  2. Love the layout Val, the papers compliment each other and I love the corner dies:)

  3. This worked superbly with those reds tying in. Well done with the scraps - my scrap tray needs a sort & I keep getting helpful comments like "organized chaos" coming my where's that 'to do' list hiding....

  8. Well, this certainly doesn't look as though it's made from scraps Val, it's lovely. I definitely don't need to buy any more craft goodies ...... ever!!! However, I know exactly how long my resolve will last as I'm going to my first show since Spring on Saturday and I can't wait and I bet I spend a small fortune again.

  9. I love your scraps card Val, and I agree with Lesley it dosen't look like it.
