One more for today!!

Wow!! Two blog posts in one day!!! Who would've thought!!! I am having lots of fun getting back into the swing of things!! Today I worked on the Papertrey Senior DT challenge. Have I told you how much I love Papertrey Stamps??? Well, I absolutely love them and their inks are pretty wonderful too!! I do have to say that Papertrey Ink is probably one of my favorite finds of 2009!

Here's the challenge just in case you are interested:

Senior DT Challenge: Scrap-tastic

We all have 'em. Lots and lots of scraps. Whether it be paper scraps, ribbon scraps or fabric scraps, this month's challenge is to share a clever & unique idea for using those little bits that sometimes end up neglected.

Here's my take on this challenge:

I used some Basic Grey Bittersweet Scraps, a pretty little vintage tag, Say it with Style Stamps from Papertrey Ink, Heidi Swapp chipboard shape, Tim Holtz distress ink-worn lipstick, prima flower and Kaiser Craft Pearl. I used a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 " card base and cut another piece of cardstock the same size and then trimmed the edge with my pinking shears and then I inked all the edges. I then cut out six 1 1/2" squares inked them and glued them down. Then I tied a ribbon around the card and added all the embellishments. I stamped the sentiment on paper and cut it out and added it to the front of the card.

Very basic, and very easy!! Such a great way to use up those scraps!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!!
