Scrappy Happy

Have you ever found yourself hoarding scraps of paper, chocolate wrappers, pencil sharpenings, random pieces of ribbon, odd buttons and the like? I have been doing it since I can remember. I also found a Tesco cornflakes cut out last week while I was rummaging through some photos. A keepsake which deserved to be archived in an album! Think of that! :P Well, I've decided to create some cards using entirely scrap pieces and left over paper that I've been wanting to get rid of. If you can't stop shopping for craft supplies, just because they're pretty and will come in handy, AND if your budget is screaaaaming STOP at the top of its lungs (even if it's not); then try fixing yourself a target. I decided that before I use up 50% of my stacked up pieces of crumpled and folded paper, I shall not enter my Visa account number into another craft supply website. Of course that includes not purchasing off the counter :)

These are some of the cards I came up with using only scraps:

This card reads 'Happy Belated Birthday' and it uses a Sugar Nellie stamp. I love these stamps!

This card reminds me of The Secret Garden and it also uses a Sugar Nellie stamp. This is fast becoming my favourite stamp so far.

Amazing cards :) Using scraps of papers,choclate wrappers and more, it's really artistic.
