Using it Up

During my recent tidying up I gathered together various bits and pieces which were piling up on my desk and decided I would try and use them up to make some cards.  This saying had obviously been printed out but I'm afraid I have no idea now of the source, nor what I meant to do with it originally.  I've now cut it out using Spellbinder labels dies;  backing paper has been overprinted using a flourish stamp; the embossed panel was an experiment in inking the folder before running it through the machine;  a spray of leaves (Tattered Lace die) and a few die cut flowers made from scraps and that is another card for my box.


  1. What a lovely card made from the bits left over on your desk

  2. Beautiful Val, I think we should all take a lesson from you on how to make the most of your scraps. Well done.

  3. What a lovely card you've made from your scraps Val, just goes to show what beautiful cards we can make....Love the sentiment where ever it came from!


  4. This came together beautifully & I love the way the background stamped flourish is picked up by the embossing folder pattern.

  5. This is so lovely Val - the sentiment is great and love how you've stamped the background paper. Great way to use your bits. See you tomorrow.
