What To Do With Those Scraps!

What To Do With Those Scraps!

We all have them!  Yes, we do!  LOTS of scrap pieces of papers that we just can’t seem to part with.  We end up throwing them into the pile, some big, some small!

In case you didn’t know…?  Stampin’ Up! includes a list of all the colors from that Designer Series Paper pack.  It is easy to find what you need on a moment’s notice.

 

ButterflysAre you looking for some creative ways to use your scrap pieces of paper?

Here are 10 ideas to help you get started!

  1. Punch some paper using your small punches.  Make confetti!
  2. If you are a scrapbooker, punch small pieces and use them as embellishments and accents for your pages.  Remember your cards as well.
  3. If you have pieces that you can cut into 3 x 6, use them to make gift tags and/or cards.
  4. Line your envelopes using Stampin’ Up’s! Envelope Framelit.
  5. Shred some of it and use it to add to your super cute little boxes made with the Stampin’ Up! Gift Box Punch Board!
  6. Do you have the Big Shot?  Die cut letters using any die for your cards or scrapbook pages.  Make a alphabet garland using a large alphabet and coordinating printed paper.
  7. Are you into Mixed Media?  I am!  I love to create using leftover Designer Series Paper.  Check this out!
  8. Easter is coming!  If you set a table, make some napkin rings with your Spring paper.  Use it to add a seating tag!
  9. You can make small bows using Stampin’ Up’s! Bow Builder Punch.  Small patterns lend themselves to this idea! This one is pure genius!  Check out this video!
  10. Get creative for your kitchen.  Make some labels to organize your pantry items.

Stampin’ Up! | Grateful Bunch | Best Wishes Card

Don’t you just love it when Stampin’ Up! pairs a stamp set with a punch, framelit or die?!  Ugh!  I really don’t like cutting out images if I don’t have to, so it makes my heart happy to have those little extra tools handy.  This wonderful little set is bundled together for a 15% discount.

Notice the little butterfly next to Best Wishes?!  I thought the card needed a little something and when I was going through my stash of stamps, believe it or not, that little image just jumped out at me.  That image is part of Flowering Fields which is a Sale A Bration Set!  There are some adorable images from that set.  I can’t wait to break out the rest of the flowers and play!

BIG, BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL!  That describes this card perfectly.  Handwritten bold fonts are super trendy at this time and these colors scream Spring to me.

Sometimes the best cards are the ones you get inspiration from in the catalogs!  Isn’t that why we have them?  One thing I love about this card is the bright and colorful inks that were used.

Just For YouChristine’s Tips:

  • Don’t be afraid of color.  Using the Archival Black Ink with these beautiful colors really makes them POP!  I used Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron.  I got the color combination from the It’s My Party Enamel Dots in the Occasions Catalog.  You will want a package of those, I guarantee it!!!

Fall Flower Patch

Fall Flower Patch Idea!

Flower Patch FallYour Stamping Teacher Tips:

  • On this sample, I used the solid stamps to create a vivid and bold statement using wonderful Fall colors
  • I started with the lighter colors first, ending with the darker, Elegant Eggplant.
  • Try to cover as much white as you can, leaving a little bit to stamp smaller images.
  • Keep your sentiment simple as you don’t want to over power an already bold collage.
  • Of course, you need to add a 3-dimensional element to your card front, such as the five-point flower from the Flower Fair framelits.
  • Don’t forget to stamp the inside, especially if you have to add a piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of your darker card stock.
