Using Scraps 5 - Recycled Hello

This card was inspired from Maile Belles' card shown on page 24.  What a great layout!!   So what scraps did I use??  Well, all the paper on this card (with the exception of the base) is from Papertrey Ink packaging!!!  That's right.  I tend to keep the bands that go around the stamp sets when they arrive.  I realized as I dug through my scraps that I had 4 differnt colors of the same pattern so I wanted to use them together.  I cut them to be all the same size and popped them up on the card.  Then I added some black organdy ribbon.  Then, see that flower ... more of the same recycled PTI packaging!!  Yup, I punched out the starburst (Martha Stewart) and then cut slits to create petals.  A small circle of Sweet Blush cardstock (Papertrey Ink) with the simple sentiment completes the card!!!

I am having so much fun using up my scraps!!   Hope you are having as much fun seeing what I created.

You are a recycling genius!
I guess I don't like to keep all that stuff because I have no tidy way to store it all. I am all about tidy storage, I am afraid of being featured on "Hoarders" or something like that!

goodness, don't give hoarders my number, my house might be tidy but my crafting space is not :-)

I bookmarked this sketch in my magazine -- it's such an awesome way to showcase scraps! Fun way to display the sentiment on a punch, too!!
