Scraps can be beautiful!!

     I really want and need to use up my stash; it’s really out of control! So I wanted to challenge myself to use my old stash on some new projects.
       So I am venturing in to some altered projects. I don’t really have a lot of decorations for the 4th of July so I decided to make some. But the cheapskate in me knew I would want more use out of my wall sugar purchase, so I decided to use both sides. The Front side I am still working on and the back side I used for my 4th of July door hanger.
I am keeping both sides flat so that they will not be damaged while the reverse is being displayed. With that in mind I kept the ribbons super simple too so they could be removed and replaced depending on which side is being displayed.
Products Used: Wall Sugar- 3 Square Hanger,DCWV Summer Stack & Embossed White Cardstock with Stars, Black Cardstock, Ribbon and Mod Podge.

Creative Cutting

So my kit was pretty simple this month from Scrappy Chic and I really wanted to keep my scrapping budget in line this month, so I tried to keep this simple. I loved the beautiful Magnolia Grove cardstock but when I first looked at it I wanted to go crazy with embellishments but I reminded myself of my budget. So I went back to the paper and there was my answer so many beautiful roses just waiting to be cutout. So what is the moral of this babble? Sometimes you can save a buck with some creative cutting!

So I’m back from Mega Meet with tons of new ideas and no time to get it done…. Blah! But here is a layout that was featured at Mega Meet. I created this layout for Scrappy Chic. I just had to do another starburst, this time I added some machine stitching. So without further ado her it is.

My First Mini!

Here goes! So I have never made a mini album and I really wasn’t sure about doing this one, but I think it turned out pretty good. This was a DT assignment for Scrappy Chic, so thanks Angela for putting me on the right track. It took three days and it’s not perfect, but I’m PROUD!
