Use Your Scraps - Bird Crazy


Hi Scrappy Friends!

Happy Monday!  It is my turn to host the challenge for you all at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog. This week I challenge you to break into those scraps.  There are so many things you can use those little bits for... punch art, fun borders, altered art, fun backgrounds, mini albums and so much more!  I hope you will play along with us this week.

My project this week is a fun little card using up my paper strips and some die-cuts I had in my stash from previous play time.

I used a 1/2" and a 1/4" circle punch to punch out all the circles from a scrap strip of paper.  The yellow shimmer base is a piece of scrap I had left from a  previous project.  I lined it up diagonally on my ScorePal to create the diamonds.   I glued the 1/2" circles in the center of the diamonds, and popped up the 1/4" circles with Dementionals.

I had this fun little bird left over as well.  I colored him with Gelatos and popped him up on a matted circle that was cut in half.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will join us at Use Your Stuff!

Happy Scrappin'!
