Using up those scraps

Good morning! I have to say that I've been quite pleased with myself recently. If you hadn't noticed, I've been using a lot of the Basic Grey paper packets recently. Part of that is that they are new to me which always makes it fun to use, but another reason is that I made a deliberate decision to use up those little bits left over as I'm making cards. The three cards I'm posting today are similar because I've been using the same paper, but they are still unique. The end result is that I have less little bits of paper floating around and the little tiny, tiny pieces I can recycle guilt free.

If you want to know where I got this gorgeous paper, you don't even have to ask because I will tell you :) Head on over to Limelight Papercrafts and pick up a packet or more!

Don't forget about the Ladies in the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge that Mandy is hosting over on her blog. Click HERE for all the details. All you have to do is make a fun card and you could win a great prize! You have until midnight tomorrow - loads of time.

I'm off to Whistler Canada for a nice little vacation. I hope they have internet and I hope its wireless (lol).

Have a great weekend everyone!



Recipe:

Enjoy your trip! Those cards look great! I especially love the one with the blocks. It is so fun how you highlighted a couple of blocks by matting them on card stock!
