Spring Hath Sprung in Minnesota

The end of March is near. It has been too long since my last post. I have to admit that I have been out enjoying this awesome early spring. Our temperatures here have been in the 70's. May like weather in March. Wow. I am loving it! Today, I am posting some of my simple cards I made with leftover scraps and unused stickers.

My daughter, Cherie, let me play with her Cuddlebug. I had so much fun embossing scrap papers! I ended up using a pretty pink piece for my background here. I cut out a floral glitter flowery piece from scrap paper and backed it to look like a framed piece. Easy, simple, inexpensive....well, let's go so far as to say FREE!

Again, leftover scrap papers, added some ribbon and a slide. The phrase is a stick on that I had "leftover".

A series of three cards, using a large scrap of paisley paper. Simple, quick, and fun!

I had some textured scraps that I wanted to use up. I just can't throw this stuff out. I figure I can always find a use for scraps. The grey-silver card needed some pizazz, so I added the pink phrase sticker.

Two cards using black scraps. The black background does not help the presentation of the top card..... I used black shimmery cardstock for the card, adding the beige and black printed paper for background. The pink paper was one of my Cuddlebug embossing pieces, then I used stick on sequin and cloth flowers.

The butterfly card, is black and white. I had the butterfly and framed piece, then designed using scraps around that. Fun!
Tea time! So now I am .....................................................................Sneaking off....................

  1. Laurie, these are so lovely! I like the first two the best because they remind me of spring. I am just like you and can't throw scraps out (though mine are with fabric, which means I will have to sew some tiny things - perhaps for tiny people.
