I took some photos of the various piles and in the picture above you can see some scraps left over from my St Luke's Card - I really like the pretty papers. The die cut shape was going to be used on last week's LIM card, but I went with a different idea. So I thought I'd have a go at using up some of this stash.
I know that the rules say areas of white space and there's no white space on my card at all. There is, however, a lot of turquoise space and the design is really clean and simple. I used up the turquoise paper at the bottom of the photo, attached the pretty pink die cut and then found this lovely verse in the papers. I cut it out using a circular paper punch. I was going to leave the card like that, but I found this sweet little flower in my scrap box. It was stamped onto plain white card and heat embossed, so I simply added a touch of colour with my distress inks.
Stamps: Dawn Bibby - Flower Patch
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Evergreen Bough
Spellbinders: Ironworks Motifs (S5-059)
Accessories: Kaisercraft Gypsy Sisters Papers free with Simply Homemade; clear embossing powder
The photo below shows some of the drawers in my storage unit - all this is scrap paper - and I think that I'll be passing a lot of it to my local school and/or Scout group for them to use. I don't think I can take it all to the States with me ;( But they'll make good use of it all.
It's been a busy weekend. On Saturday Kathryn and her friends were up surprisingly early! So we went out to Staples - it was great all the girls love stationery and pens and pencils - I got them all a new notebook. Then we went window shopping in Toys 'R' Us - the girls immediately headed to the Monster High section to see what new dolls were out. To be fair to them, they didn't ask for anything at all, they simply came away with a wish list that was huge!! And then we went to the cinema to see "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" in 3D. It was a fun film - not outstanding, but a good way to spend a morning with the children. Then we had lunch out and got home for about 3.00pm. In time for me to watch the rugby - Wales V England. It was a tough match to watch - but Wales eventually won!!
I had big plans for Sunday - tidying, sorting and cleaning, and then in my craft room to make some DT cards. Unfortunately, I woke up feeling rather rough and I ended up spending the day just relaxing. My head was thumping - I think it's stress. So I simply watched some TV, read a book and chilled with Kathryn. It was lovely!
That's all for now - should be back soon.
