Scrap Attack

Hello All,

A few cards using up my scraps!! When I was making the card posted below, I liked the way the background paper turned out, so while I had those scraps and my sewing machine out I decided to make a few more backgrounds to use up the paper and then save them from future use. In an effort to try and use up scraps I have also had a good root round and found these little toppers, that I must have bought eons ago, before stamping became my obsession. all the embellies are also made out of scrap paper too. Despite this effort there is not even a dent in my stash ..... I think I would prob have to challenge myself to use only scraps and odd bits and pieces for about a year, in order to make any sort of dent !!!! LOL!! cant see me doing that though! I will however make more of an effort!

This is my entry for:

Papertake Weekly
-Anything Goes
MAWTT - Step back in time
If the Shoe Fits Scrap it - Use up my stash
CES - Anything Goes

As always thanks for looking
Hugs Juls


  1. What a great use of scraps. Love the pics too, very vintage. Wish I was this good I just bag them up and send them to the local school.
    Hugs Erika. x

  2. Beautifully composed cards Juls. I just love the pastel shades with the vintage images it all works together beautifully.
    I know what you mean about denting the scraps. I have been trying to do the same but I just keep adding to the boxes!!!
    Take care.

  4. Love how you've used your scraps Juls. Such lovely soft colours. At the moment I'm so fed up with mine, both DP and coloured card scraps that I feel like just chucking them out!

    Hope you're feeling better?
