Card of the Week: When You've Finished a Scrapbook Layout, Make a Card & Tags

A while ago I talked about how when I have finished a scrapbook layout, I like to make cards with the scraps right away. This is one of the things that I do to try and use up some of the scrapbooking supplies that I have on hand at home.

Well, this week I did this again, only I made more.

After I finished this scrapbook layout,
Cardstock: Bazzill, Co'ordinations; Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket; Flowers: Prima; Buttons: my craft stash; Border Punch, Circle Punch: Fiskars; Pearls: Recollections; Title: cut with Quickutz Squeeze; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots, Quickie Glue

I made this card,
Card Base: Recollections; Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket; Flower: Prima; Button: my craft stash; Border Punch: Fiskars; Sentiment: Cosmo Cricket; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots

and these four tags.
Tag Base: Recollections; Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket; Flower: Prima; Ribbon, Button: my craft stash; Border Punch, Circle Punch: Fiskars; Sentiment: Cosmo Cricket; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots, Quickie Glue

I had the patterned paper and coordinating stickers in my stash for quite some time, and with these few projects was able to use them all, meaning there are a few less supplies that I need to to organize and store.

I love trying to use up each and every small scrap that there is.  It gives me such a thrill to see how much I can make from one pile of papers and embellishments.  And as the paper pieces get smaller, and the embellishments fewer, I love the creative challenge of trying to make one more card or tag using what is left.  That, and I can not bear to throw a decent sized piece of paper in the garbage.
