Use your scraps - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

Such a fun challenge today over at Sweet Stampin'... we want you to dig through your stash and use up some paper scraps (because you know you have loads of them...).

I made a bookmark this week, as my last one had fallen apart. I used the leftover strips that I trimmed from some 6x6 sheets when I was decorating a mini album. They were all a perfect 1cm, which lent itself nicely to the following:

I stamped a Creative Expressions sentiment and cut each word out, then rearranged them on the tag. Finally a coat of Vintage Collage Medium tied everything together.

I'm thinking of making a whole heap of these for our next craft fair. I could stick one in each bag when people buy something...

That's it from me, your turn!

Have a great weekend!


Because it would be rude not to, I'm going to take my snippets over to the playground

Even better, it's a bookmark! I have long thin cards like this, so first thought it was a card. But I love this as a bookmark idea. I'm with Chris, so wanna CASE this! Hugs, Wends xoxo
