Save the Scraps

I love leftovers. I love having leftovers, especially at Thanksgiving - leftover turkey, dressing, and pecan pie. Oh - but wait - we're talking scrappy stuff here, right?

Okay - so I keep my scraps. Especially when it's favorite papers. I can't bear to part with them. These cards are all made with leftovers - bits of scraps of some of my favorites.

Papers are some older Crate paper stripes and Bo Bunny polka dots. Stamps are Birthday Bash from Cornish Heritage Farms Kim Hughes Collection.

I made this scalloped circle card from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge. I love this cart and can't wait to make more. The papers are Pink Paislee. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the kraft paper label. I used another stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms Kim Hughes Collection (love those stamps!)

Another one using Pink Paislee scraps, Pink Paislee die cut and more embossing using the Cuttlebug.

Last one using Pink Paislee scraps (although I do have a few more scraps left). Rub on is Melissa Frances.

This is one of my favorites... using Basic Grey Urban Prairie (leftover from my Lime Tart Full Tart November Kit). I used Cuttlebug to emboss the paper on the inside of the heart, and placed tiny Queen and Co brads in the flower centers. The glitter is Doodlebug Bumblebee - fun stuff! Jenni Bowlin stickers and Doodlebug ribbon.

I can't believe it's the Thursday before Thanksgiving. I'm ready to get the Christmas decorations out this weekend... if I can talk hubby into going up in the attic and getting everything down. I've never decorated before Turkey day, but I've been listening to Christmas music for 2 weeks already- so I might as well.

Have a wonderful day and weekend!
